Non Heated Classes
ABOUT AERIAL YOGA
Aerial Yoga combines traditional mat yoga with postures suspended in soft fabric hammocks. With the help of gravity and the hammocks, we can playfully explore floating, fluid movements and create space in our bodies without compressing our joints and spine. With practice, the feeling in the body is exquisite.
At Cary Hot Yoga, each of our hammock unit is designed to hold 3000lbs/1360 kilos dynamic load.
Aerial Yoga is a wonderful complement to your mat practice. It unwinds fascia knots and tangles, quiets the mind, builds core-strength, and leaves your body feeling integrated. The basic yoga principles of Ahimsa (non-harm) and mindfulness are woven throughout the sequences. The hammock, like other props in yoga, is intended to assist alignment and deepen your awareness. The fabric becomes a learning tool and students often find “Aha!” moments that bring new life and understanding to poses they previously feared or fought to achieve. In our classes we will alternate between practicing with the hammock and practicing on the mat to play with gravity in different ways and to stay energetically grounded.
For all Aerial Yoga classes, wear long pants and long sleeves. No Jewelry please.
