Inside Aerial Fit: Aerial Yoga

We’re hard at work creating a short video series that gives a glimpse inside Aerial Fit. We often get questions about our aerial classes, and these videos will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in each class we offer. The first in the series is Aerial Yoga.

Aerial Yoga is a type of yoga that uses a low-hanging fabric trapeze, called a hammock or sling, to suspend, invert, and challenge familiar yoga postures. The sling is hung at waist-height, and body weight is shared between the sling and the floor, or suspended entirely in the sling.

Although every class is different, you can expect to explore postures like Warrior 1 and 2, Downward Facing Dog, Tree Pose, Camel Pose, Wheel, Cobbler’s Pose, Handstand, Pigeon, L-Shaped Handstand, Spinal Twists, and of course, Deep Relaxation.

The yoga sling takes stress off the joints, decompresses the spine, allows gravity to ease you deeper into postures, while challenging your proprioceptive sense. There is no aerial or yoga experience needed to take your first class. We recommend a weekly practice, either in conjunction with, or without, a ground yoga practice as well. Please show up at least 10 minutes early for your first class. Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing that covers the armpits and knees, and remove all jewelry from your arms, hands and fingers.
