Aerial Yoga Reduces CVD & Cardiometabolic Risks Factors

 

 

 

 

CAN AERIAL YOGA TAKE YOUR WORKOUTS TO ANOTHER LEVEL?

 

 

 

While its exact origin is still up for discussion, yoga has existed for at least the past 5,000 years, and its benefits are well-documented and accepted around the world. Despite, or perhaps because of, its longevity, yoga is constantly evolving and most fitness facilities offer multiple forms on their group fitness schedules.

THE STUDY
The purpose of this study was twofold. First, Dr. Dalleck aimed to quantify participants’ acute cardiovascular and metabolic responses to Aerial Yoga. Second, he wanted to determine the effectiveness of a six-week Aerial Yoga intervention at positively modifying cardiometabolic risk factors. Sixteen healthy women between the ages of 18 and 45 years old were recruited to participate in the study, which involved a six-week intervention with three 50-minute sessions per week

 

 

THE BOTTOM LINE
Findings from this study support Aerial Yoga as an alternative to traditional exercise modalities for adults, as this novel form of yoga yields metabolic responses in the moderate-intensity range. Regular participation in Aerial Yoga improves cardiorespiratory fitness and positively modifies several major CVD risk factors. Stated simply, according to Dr. Dalleck, “Aerial Yoga proves to be a great alternative form of exercise with benefits in line with other, more popular forms of exercise.” It should the goal of any health and fitness professional, Dr. Dalleck reminds us, to find an effective mode of exercise that accommodates the needs of each individual client or participant, while also being enjoyable
