How is going to be your first
aerial yoga class?
GET READY FOR INVERSIONS
Even if you hate doing inverted poses in your regular yoga practice, embrace them when you're in the hammock. In aerial yoga, you have the unique opportunity to be completely inverted without gravity to hold you downYou'll also be less likely to fall in aerial yoga because you have the hammock to support you, which makes going head first a little less scary.
DON'T WORRY IF YOU ARE NOT THAT FLEXIBLE
If you're lacking in flexibility, this class is actually perfect for you, because the stretching and lengthening will help you to build flexibility. Aside from static and dynamic stretching, you'll also use the hammock or silks for myofascial release, which can help to ease up tight muscles.
EXPECT TO STRETCH AND STRENGTHEN
Your core will be engaged the entire time to keep you stable during poses and you'll use your upper body to hold yourself while suspended. You'll also use the hammock to float off the earth for traditional movements such as grand jetes, which are even harder than using traditional ballet barre because the hammock is unstable, encouraging you to engage much more fully through the core and legs.
