If you like yoga — even if you don’t do it that often — you should definitely, certainly, positively consider giving Aerial Yoga a try!
Aerial yoga defies gravity and allows you to perform various yoga poses that may be difficult to do on the ground, but easier in mid-air. ... Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility.
First Class: $10!!
You’ll be supported by a soft hammock, which allows your body to let gravity do some of the work.
Counter-gravity works to reverse the negative effects of gravity by decompressing the spine, releasing muscle tension, and enhancing blood circulation.The hammock is also intended to assist in proper body alignment and deepen awareness.
