Why You Should Give Aerial Yoga a Try

  • No shoes! No skills! No problem!
  • It’s one heck of a core workout.
  • It’s just as effective at burning calories as a traditional cardio workout.
  • There’s zero-impact so it’s easy on the joints.
  • You get the benefits of yoga but with the excitement of flying.

Personally, the yoga mat is my security blanket. However, Yoga Aims Studio ensures that the use of silk hammocks enhances your experience. Those challenging poses you struggle to do on the mat become much easier to practice once you’re suspended.

4. Head Over Heels

Watch out Cirque du Soleil. Aerial silk is no longer an exclusive type of training for Olympic gymnasts and circus performers. Head Over Heels Gym offers classes to all ages. Get your little acrobat started young or live out your dream of being able to fly.
