Aerial Yoga: Swinging into a Stretch
If you opt for aerial yoga, read Groupon’s introduction to prepare to lift off.
Although yoga devotees often speak of their practice helping to “ground” them, students of aerial yoga have a different idea altogether. Sometimes referred to as Unnata aerial yoga, suspension yoga, or antigravity yoga, this particular form fuses traditional Hatha or Vinyasa yoga poses with acrobatic techniques. Practitioners perform maneuvers such as backward somersaults, handstands, and downward-facing dogs while suspended on nothing but a soft, fabric trapeze that dangles from the ceiling. This low-hanging hammock, which can support 1,000–2,000 pounds, enables participants of all shapes and weights to stretch farther and hold poses longer while decompressing pressure on the spine.
In addition to claiming strengthened back, core, and shoulder muscles, aerial yogis often remark on how much fun the practice is when compared to traditional forms of working out. Many students often report experiences of elation and improved moods during and after sessions.
Rising Goddess Fitness
At Rising Goddess Fitness, the classes emphasize rising—both literally and figuratively. In the literal sense, students often leave the ground behind, mounting hammocks during aerial fitness sessions and executing flips in advanced pole sessions. In a more figurative sense, founders Michelle Tenuta and Barb Cassidy have designed most of their classes in progressive sequences, so over time, students' confidence in their abilities rises. Each class builds on its predecessor, ensuring that by the end of the month, students have mastered something new. That could mean keeping the hoop aloft in a hula-hoop-fitness class, executing a flip in a pole class, or dancing in an aerial hoop.
