Plus, taking three 50-minute aerial yoga classes a week for six weeks may decrease your risk of coronary heart disease by 10% thanks to increasing “good” HDL cholesterol; it may reduce the risk of mortality by 15% thanks to increasing VO2 max (a measure of cardiorespiratory fitness). Physical benefits of aerial yoga: Increase full-body flexibility and strength: Schenone says that this practice is a full-body type of movement, so it strengthens all muscles. The hammock itself. The wonderful benefits of aerial yoga Achieving more freedom of movement can be very helpful in improving some poses that you are trying so hard to experience and even move your body in very new positions that will make you feel more fulfilled with your stretching movements.

2. Increases strength. Aerial yoga improves strength, especially through the chest, shoulders and arms.However the main benefit comes from activating your core. A benefit of taking your practice off the mat and being suspended is that you lose your point of stability which acts to engage your core muscles immediately without even realizing it, which as it happens makes anti gravity yoga. Improves flexibility: Aerial yoga helps you to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity.

Suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and deepening your practice. Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility. The Aerial Yoga Sequence: 9 Poses to Defy Gravity Using an aerial silk or hammock allows gravity to help the back leg relax and the spine to curve naturally.

You’ll stop fighting gravity, and allow the support of the hammock to help you lengthen. Aerial acrobatics’ mental-health benefits go far beyond traditional types of fitness. For example, aerial yoga would bring the feeling of calmness.

This is derived from deep muscle relaxation from being “hanged in the air” as well as meditation and breathing exercises. Great for Back Sufferers While everyone can benefit from aerial yoga classes, they’re especially great for people experiencing back pain. Because of the hammock’s support, far less pressure is placed upon your joints. Aerial yoga also doesn’t strain the spine, which is a huge advantage for back pain sufferers.

Similarly to yoga, aerial yoga is bringing awareness to your mind-body connection while also helping increase strength and flexibility. Aerial yoga takes traditional yoga poses and lifts them off the ground with the use of an aerial hammock. Yoga hammocks are used for Anti-gravity or Aerial Yoga, and the soft fabric of the hammock assists you in maintaining proper alignment and deepening your bodily awareness.

  • There are few mistakes that can injury a begginer’s back, especially when you go upside down. There should be more protection on the lower back with the hammock when a beginner starts with the upside down pose.

  • What kind of aerial hammock would you recommend? I already have the small indoor aerial stand by Trevor Boswell but could not decide on what aerial hammock to get.Thanks in advance!:)

  • Achieve deeper backbends and instant back pain relief with the Aerial Yoga Swing Pro® is powerful, at home yoga hammock inversion tool ever created.

  • Is there a way to modify that first double arm wrap to have less pressure on the forearm? I had wrist surgery 3 months ago and that pressure was very painful

  • Thank you so much, this was wonderful. I feel so much more open and more ideas to flow on my own. You are adorable!!! I love your enthusiasm for life, movement, and this trapeze! I love that you kissed it with gratitude and kisses your knees and told them you love them. You are my type of gal!!! �� �� �� �� Thank you so much for this video!

  • I am just starting out with aerial yoga. Every time I hang upside down, I inevitably get a huge uncomfortable head rush. Do you just get used to this or does it go away with more practice?

  • Room is amazeballsbut i am doing this with an injured leg therefore i searched “beginner yoga hammock”… some of these are intermediate and advanced..

  • Wonderful presentation! Dear one, your fun and “just love yourself’ attitude is awesome. I am “a retired mind-body coach” and “a bodybuilding champion” who approaches exercise as play. The body is a communication device for extending love into the world of form. This video clearly demonstrates you are communicating love into the world with your presentation of being play-full. Yeah for being love in form and playing with energy. Namaste

  • Getting my hammock next week. I’m not that flexible backwards.I am petite but nervous I won’t do well. Does this increase flexibility possibly splits? Would love to get to a point where I can be more in tuned with my body for over all health including the mind. This was beautiful by the way thank you. Namaste

  • Bought my Firetoys silk hammock. What is the optimal distance between rigging points on the ceiling? Thank you for nice video. Elena

  • your living room is my dream come true!! love the way you just hang like nothing, meantime every time I go to class that darn hammock hurts me so bad!! I guess I just need to really breathe into the pose. thanks for sharing and for being so adorable! best wishes!

  • What a joyful, playful, wonderful session. I am a new aerial yoga teacher and was browsing to get inspirational flows. Just wow! Thank you.

  • This is a great starter video for me since I have been doing yoga for over a decade and have tried aerial a few times before, but yeah definitely NOT beginner level. I mean, this stuff is not new to me and it took me a few tries to get through the whole video.

    Also, do you live next to an airport? Sounded like a plane was taking off every couple of minutes. There was also some weird distortion in the video around you and the swing that kinda made it look like something had been edited out, but it doesn’t really make sense how or why… shrug

  • Hi Kattie, can you tell me why when I am inverted the material digs into my back and skin and hurts? I can get inverted but the hammock is digging in so hard that I am so sore for days where it was sitting. Any tips? Maybe I have the wrong material?

  • you are so authentic in how you describe what you are doing with your stretches. very inspiring! I’m new to this and just got mine installed, and will want to follow you and what you are doing with your poses. I love your voice.

  • Thank you, I found this helpful �� Is there a way to stop it feeling so tight when you do the diaper one? Or just something you’ve got to get used to?

  • Hello!!! Lovely video. This is my first time using my yoga swing. You look so comfortable in your set up. What is your fabric like? Mine feels very uncomfortable and kinda painful where the seam is. Is this just something to get use to?

  • I love this I do this sequence everyday on my hammock before I go for a run and it helps so much with stretching and activating my muscles. ������

  • You’re fierce and a good teacher! Thank you so much for taking the time to present a beginners series. People love to post their advanced work as it looks so impressive, but it’s not going to motivate a total newb.
    *Maybe include some music next time to enrich the experience.
    I’m definitely subscribing!
    Thanks again.

  • I should warn you that this sort of yoga, when done by a woman, gives manipulative men telepathic control over that woman, or, if taught to males, gives them telepathic control over women. The demon “Vayu” (air) wants first and foremost to control women, because he envies them.

  • Can you make a tutorial on how you assembled your silk harness? I have the same exact one but I’m not sure what’s the safest and most effective way to hang it.. thank you!!!!

  • Stupid question but I really want to go to one of these classes but as a plus size woman I have many concerns. I don’t want to walk in and them to be like uh get out

  • WOW! Exactly what I needed. Succinct and to the point! You are a really good instructor, flows easily without unnecessary talking. Like it. THANK YOU!

  • Hey I’m not sure if you read your comments at all, but is this something you would recommend for someone with back issues? My spine is slowly fusing itself together and the doctors recommended yoga since the condition is incurable.

  • Looks like fun, but seriously WHO is the beginner that can do most of this. More like a beginner who is already SUPER proficient at yoga! Maybe will come back to this, but this is NOT really for a beginner.:-(

  • Hi Maggie LaCosta,… I think you are a Beatiful Inspiring Goddess. I just set up my aerial yoga swing chair, at 68 years old (orbits around the sun). I will be using your modeling to listen to my body while exploring new ways to stretch out. I am slightly challenged with slight dizziness when upside down. I will see if can gradually get over that while exploring allot of other ways to stretch. Also shifting to try on the Keto diet.

  • Thanks this is great. My first go uesterday and I felt queasy! Had another go in the evening and wasn’t as bad. Tough going and really enjoyed it! Like another commenter here,I’ll be repeating this over and over til I’m confident and not sure I’ll get the inversion at the end for a few practises. Thanks for the clear instructions! Taragh

  • really nice knowledge
    also can chk think for more details and share comment as well

  • Late to the party on this but I wanted to say that this video IS super helpful for beginners. I just started a few weeks ago, and other “beginner” lessons went straight into a bunch of inversions which I could NOT handle. Your lesson hit what beginners actually need, work on strength and flexibility, before trying to go into crazy poses and inversions. And then, just a hint of inversion at the end to start practicing. I could NOT do this whole lesson at first. I didn’t even do the inversion the first time. Instead, I went back to this lesson over and over again. I guess what I am saying is… beginners, use this as a flexibility/conditioning tool, and master it before moving on to other lessons. It’s actually great for getting you ready for other moves.

  • Hi
    I’m one month’s aerial yoga beginner.
    You’ve been very helpful,thank U so much.
    Now I have one more fun thing to look forward to.

  • This looks so awesome! Thank you for sharing. You are very good at explaining the steps. Where do you get these hammocks? I really want to do aerial yoga but I have no idea where to start.

  • Where do you suggest I purchase Ariel silks? I currently have a yoga trapeze, but like you mentioned in another comment, I can’t play around with fun tricks.

  • Can you recommend a favorite silk product? I am really unsure what to order on Amazon. My husband has constructed a robust outdoor stand and I just need the silk. I’m sure there are cheap ones and I want to avoid the disappointment of not liking it. Thanks for any recommendations. I can’t wait to start!

  • My straps finally came in today so I will finally be able to do it tomorrow in the morning after waking up back at my place where my swing I’ve had for a while is. I had my own personal third floor with a lock and my girl have me a spare mattress her dad gave me that I don’t use so I shall use that as a safety landing. It shall be the first time I try such swing but I have hung upside before. I need it for my hip cure, maybe it shall be, finally, since like Feb. ’14 of this very disturbing daily problem, and for relief of tension, anxiety, to a pretty decent degree, hehe (that rhymes, hehe), as well, anti aging, etc. Cheerrrssiess.
