This modern and playful style of yoga really brings out your inner child. Aerial Yoga is a style of yoga in which we optimally make use of our own body in combination with gravitational forces. The hammock is suspended above the floor and around the height of the hips. In some poses the hammock will support the body, making certain poses easier or more accessible, as is with Sirsasana (headstand) or Vrksasana (tree pose). In other poses, the hammock tends the create an extra level of challenge, as in the flying variation of Bhujangasana (cobra pose).
The more you are able to trust your own body and the hammock, the more you can surrender to gravity, the more the hammock will give you in return. The hammock will massage you in certain postures, which stimulates circulation and releases toxins and tension from the tissues. The hammock will allow you to be suspended upside-down, which allows the muscles of the neck and the back to completely relax and give traction to the entire spine. The hammock will carry you, so you will be able to relax more.
Playfully, we work on the body, not just the larger muscles groups, but also and even more so the intrinsic, deeper muscle groups. Often without really noticing it while you practice, the body will get stronger, more mobile, and your coordination and fine motor skills will improve.
