PROGRESSIVE AERIAL YOGA MINI WORKSHOP
A MINI 5 WEEKS AERIAL YOGA WORKSHOP WITH RACHEL
Aerial yoga is a contemporary form of yoga: a fusion of traditional yoga asana and aerial arts. It is suitable for both beginners and for more advanced yogis as classes can range from being gentle, using the hammock as a prop to more demanding ones, where the hammock is used for resistance. Some of the benefits of aerial yoga include: core and upper body strengthening, improved balance and improved alignment of the spine. Also, when hanging upside down (inversions), the brain is oxygenated due to increased blood flow, and this results in a more alert mind. Other benefits of inversions include: improved digestion, improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, improved hair growth and skin toning.
Join Rachel for a fun 5 week mini workshop to discover aerial yoga’s exciting poses: in, on, behind, in front of and underneath the hammock! Let’s fly, hang and rest in the hammock!!
