There are a multitude of valuable aspects of having an aerial yoga practice.

Why aerial yoga?

Physically:

Mental/Emotional Health:

One important aspect of aerial yoga is how much it can complement and improve your yoga practice on the mat. With the use of the hammock you are able to reach new depths within your body and your practice. The hammock can help support your body for balance, inversions, and proper body alignment, which will then directly translate to a mat practice.

Our hope by creating this training program is to compliment a mat practice, and bring a deeper understanding to the benefits and potential an aerial yoga practice can offer. It is so much more than just hanging upside down, or stringing poses from one to another. There is a purpose for each posture, and a meaning behind each one.
