AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga
AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga is a new kind of workout, taking its inspiration from yoga, pilates and dance. It involves a series of suspensions, stretches and inversions performed in the revolutionary silk hammock.
Whilst improving flexibility & core strength, it also gives your body the chance to hang freely, allowing your spine to lengthen and hydrate. This in turn allows pressure to be released from joints and muscles, aiding stress relief and improving mobility, muscle function and proprioceptors. AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga is a complete workout designed to get you in shape whilst realigning your spine
When it comes to your fitness level, there are no restrictions. Whether you're an avid yoga lover or completely new to the idea, it is a workout that suits EVERYONE!

Why should I try AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga?
TOTAL body workout
Due to the suspended nature of AntiGravity® classees, each movement targets almost every major muscle group in your body. As you hang through the hammock, your spine will decompress and your muscles and joints will move, flex, stretch, strengthen, and tone in a completely new way. As there is virtually no impact placed on joints, aerial yoga is safe to do for those with joint injuries or going through physical rehabilitation.
Promote health and wellbeing
As with other forms of yoga, AntiGravity® is a mind-body experience and works to restore inner balance and healing inside your body. As gravity works to stretch, strengthen and tone muscles and eliminate physical toxins—it also works to strengthen the inner emotions and eliminate stress and anxiety and improve memory.
Improved strength and flexibility
As well as being great for your inner body, AntiGravity® also boosts outer strength and overall flexibility. In particular the abdominal muscles, mid and lower back made up of the hip flexors, muscles of the pelvic floor, external obliques, and lower back. All of this helps to make everyday movement much easier.
Something for everyone
AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga is safe for almost everyone, at every fitness level as it removes impact and compression from the spine. Participants of all ages, and all body types will be surprised how freeing a signle session can be as you are lifted from the ground by the hammock and gravity distributes your weight evenly to support your workout.
Feel great afterwards!
We’re all aware that exercise in general is positive for our moods, but AntiGravity® Aerial Yoga literally makes your moods fly!

As the hammock lifts your body it will also lift your self-confidence! As you enjoy the workout, you will learn to trust your hammock, overcome the initial fear of being upside down, and allow yourself to explore newfound strength, movement and awareness.
