Aerial Yoga

What is Aerial Yoga?

Aerial yoga is a type of yoga which uses a hammock to allow students to perform poses that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt on the yoga mat.  It combines traditional yoga with moves inspired by pilates, dance and acrobatics.  Aerial yoga is thought to be particularly beneficial for people who spend a long time sitting, or who have back or neck pain, because it has a decompressing effect on the body.  It increases one’s overall health and physical agility, while lengthening and strengthening one’s muscles.  It is proven that after practicing aerial yoga, your spine lengthens approximately one-quarter of an inch.  Isabelle teaches aerial fit classes as well as restorative classes.
