Aerial Yoga is a very popular class at Addictive Fitness, it’s a fun and unique class incorporating yoga, stretch and an incredible core workout.
Within the class each student has their own set of silks that are formed into a wide aerial sling hung like a hammock. The hammock is used to support your body weight, whilst performing a variety of yoga poses, and core moves and enabling deep stretches in a more relaxed way.
What makes this class so unique is the use of the hammock as it helps decompress the spine and can help to avoid certain injuries that may be associated with stretches in a regular yoga or stretch class. By removing compression from the spine, the aid of the fabric provides greater comfort and increases freedom of movement. Poses are more accessible with the support of the silks, making this an excellent class for all levels and abilities.
This class is perfect for increasing muscular flexibility, mobility, and strengthening the core muscles in the upper and lower body which assists with other classes such as Pole Fitness, Aerial Silks and Hoop. It’s a low-impact cardiovascular conditioning class that works you hard but is a lot of fun and stimulates the release of ‘happy hormones.’
Aerial Yoga is a great way to improve your mental health, many students find that the concentration required in learning an aerial skill is very mindful.
