Aerial Yoga, sometimes called yoga silks, yoga hammock, or anti-gravity yoga is practiced using a sling of fabric hanging from the ceiling. This is an incredible form of yoga that can be anything from completely therapeutic to an amazing workout. It quickly improves flexibility, balance, deep core and upper body strength and and helps release muscles, and traction your spine.
Aerial Yoga requires a special kind of hammock which can support up to 300 kilos of weight. The hammock acts like a swing or soft trapeze, supporting the hips for forward bends and back bends. Yoga postures which some find difficult to do on the ground may be easier using the support of the hammock. The hammock adds numerous opportunities for safe and easy inversions as well as endless variety and challenge to a workout.
