What Is Aerial Yoga

Anti-gravity yoga or aerial yoga actually originated in New York but has now worked its way back to India, the birthplace of yoga. There is an incredible number of aerial yoga benefits and because of this, it is now practised all over the world. Aerial Yoga combines traditional mat yoga with dance-like movement, in postures suspended in soft fabric hammocks.

Aerial Yoga is a leading proprietorial method within the modern yoga trend so it is now being followed in India. It provides an experience, with the help of gravity, that allows you to stretch and strengthen without overstressing your joints or compressing your vertebrae, where one can learn to invert and hang suspended in the air. The feeling in the body is like flying or floating, creating space in your body you didn’t know you had!

Aerial Yoga Hammock

This special type of hammock can support up to 300 kilos of weight! They consist of carabiners, 2 support daisy chains, and 1 Aerial fabric. The hammock can hang from a supported ceiling inside or from trees outside. The 2 support chains hang down to lower the hammock to around 1 metre from the ground (depending on the user’s height or preference).

The hammock supports your hips, particularly for forward bends and back-bends. It acts as a swing and is, therefore, your base for many Asana variations as well as warm-ups moves. Mat asanas that you may find hard, usually, will be easier to do in the air. For example, a hammock can be looped around one foot as you stand on the other for versions of standing big toe pose and king dancer. These applications are similar to an Iyengar-style rope wall. And, for Savasana, the hammock wraps around your entire body like a cocoon.
