Aerial Yoga Course in Rishikesh

What is Aerial Yoga?

Aerial yoga in Yoga studios has gained popularity in recent years for its ability to provide a unique and exhilarating experience while also offering a wide range of physical and mental benefits. This is also known as antigravity yoga or fly yoga and is a modern style of yoga that involves practicing traditional yoga poses on a fabric hammock suspended from the ceiling. The origin of aerial yoga can be traced back to the early 2000s when former gymnast and dancer Christopher Harrison created a new form of fitness that combines acrobatics, dance, and yoga. Harrison's goal was to create a practice that could improve strength, flexibility, and balance while also providing a sense of weightlessness and freedom.


Why Aerial yoga?


Aerial yoga offers a wide range of benefits for practitioners. One of the most significant advantages is improved flexibility. Since aerial yoga requires suspending the body in the air, it offers a unique opportunity to stretch and elongate muscles that are difficult to reach through traditional yoga poses. This increased flexibility can also improve joint mobility and range of motion. Aerial yoga is also an excellent form of strength training. Practicing yoga poses while suspended from a hammock requires a significant amount of upper body and core strength, making it an effective workout for building strength and toning muscles. Additionally, the instability of the hammock requires the use of smaller stabilizer muscles, providing a more comprehensive workout than traditional yoga poses.

Another significant benefit of aerial yoga is improved balance. Practicing poses while suspended in the air requires an increased focus on balance and stability, making it an excellent workout for improving balance and coordination. This increased focus on balance can also help improve posture and reduce the risk of falls in older adults. Aerial yoga also provides a unique opportunity for relaxation and stress relief. The feeling of weightlessness provided by the hammock can help reduce stress on joints and muscles, providing a sense of relaxation and ease. Additionally, the practice of yoga itself is known to reduce stress and anxiety, making aerial yoga an excellent choice for those looking to improve their mental well-being.

Aerial yoga can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Beginners may start with simple poses close to the ground, while more advanced practitioners may perform complex poses high in the air. Additionally, the use of the hammock allows for modifications to traditional yoga poses, making them more accessible to those with physical limitations. Aerial yoga classes typically last between 60 and 90 minutes and include a warm-up, a series of poses, and a cool-down. Many classes also incorporate meditation and breathing exercises to provide a comprehensive mind-body workout. Practitioners should wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing and avoid jewellery or other accessories that may get caught in the hammock.

Benefits of Aerial Yoga

  • Improved Flexibility: Aerial yoga can help improve flexibility by allowing for deeper stretches and a greater range of motion. The use of the fabric hammock also provides support and assistance for achieving more challenging poses.
  • Increased Strength: The instability of the hammock requires the use of smaller stabilizer muscles, providing a comprehensive workout for the entire body. Practicing yoga poses while suspended from the hammock also requires a significant amount of upper body and core strength, making it an effective form of strength training.
  • Better Balance and Coordination: Aerial yoga requires an increased focus on balance and stability, making it an excellent workout for improving balance and coordination. This increased focus on balance can also help improve posture and reduce the risk of falls in older adults.
  • Reduced Stress and Anxiety: Aerial yoga can help reduce stress and anxiety by providing a sense of relaxation and ease. The feeling of weightlessness provided by the hammock can help reduce stress on joints and muscles, providing a sense of calm and relaxation.
  • Improved Spinal Health: Aerial yoga can help improve spinal health by providing decompression for the spine. Inverted poses, such as the "Cocoon" and the "Bat," can help stretch and elongate the spine, reducing tension and compression in the vertebrae. This can lead to improved spinal mobility and reduced back pain.

An amazing school which has some really talented teachers. I did 200Hour Yoga Teacher Training course and I was very new to this field, had no prior experience with Yoga…but they made it really easy for us to understand and was very supportive throughout. After completing the course, I see a lot of changes in me, be it physical, mental or spiritual. Ram sir is the best, his classes are very knowledgeable and fun at the same time. I really enjoyed the process and going back with a lot of knowledge and change in me. Grateful to the teachers, fellow students and the management for being so supportive
