You will also learn the power, excitement and pure joy of moving freely in all directions of open space and how to move into our Decompression Inversions. This is also a great time to ask any questions or doubts you may have and in understanding how you will progress into other classes.
“Suspend your disbelief and enjoy the flight!!!”
ANTI GRAVITY AERIAL 1 & 2
Discover your Ananda (blissful joy) in levitating meditations. Gain strength in your Yoga practice as you challenge yourself to stretch and strengthen your body in your Anti Gravity Hammock.
Aerial 2 is an Advanced session requiring more core and upper body strength as you learn challenging moves, including flips and turns.
ANTI GRAVITY RESTORATIVE YOGA
Restorative Yoga is the gentle, meditative, slow stretching and rehabilitative version of AG Aerial Yoga.
This powerful method focuses the mind through visualizations as it floats the body through a series of gently gyro-kinetic motions, deeply opening the entire spine, hips and the connective tissues of the body. Each class features full body inversions alongside various forms of flowing spinal traction. It offers accessibility to students with physical limitations, but is loved by all as a portal into deeper spinal flexibility and mind/body connection.
Restorative is taught in a sequential flow to music and incorporates levitation meditations, zero compression inversions, supported sun salutations, joint opening poses, and a floating sivasana, while working from different hammock heights to allow for a gentle opening of the hips and spine.
