Aerial Yoga at the Yogafied Studio is available in private sessions only for the foreseeable future. The instructor will be wearing a mask. It is highly recommended that you wear a mask as well. You can attend alone or with up to 5 of your friends/family (if you have a hammock at home, you have the option of booking a virtual private aerial yoga class).
In the studio, the silk hammocks will be sanitized/washed after each use. Below are some examples of Aerial Yoga routines - which are all a combination of both grounded and weightless poses. Since classes are currently Private Sessions only, the level will be tailored to you.
Get information about private sessions, and then book online.
Silks/hammocks can be used while you are seated, standing or even laying down on the ground. Some poses involve sitting in the hammock to stretch, back-bend or maybe even invert.
In Aerial Yoga practice you will develop upper body and core strength, stretch more deeply, improve balance, re-enforce correct body alignment, find decompression and traction for the spine, as well as learn about anti-gravity comfort and its soothing results. The Aerial Yoga hammock can be used as a way to increase stability and take pressure out of joints.
You may also be able to enjoy an oscillating inversion practice and all of its benefits to blood flow & blood pressure, as well as its calming effects.
It is important to listen closely to advice and cautions from the instructor. You will be asked to disclose medical information and sign a release before your first class. Weight limit in a group class is 250lbs per hammock, but you can practice if you weigh more than 250lbs in private sessions, as there may be a need to modify some moves for comfort and safety in the hammocks - over 350lbs will not be able to put full body-weight in the hammock but can still use it as a supportive prop during private sessions. If you are pregnant, a healthy first trimester can do a Level I or I/II class - second or third trimester should come for a private session where the use of the hammock can be tailored to your needs.
