Beginner Aerial HammockIn this very beginner aerial hammock class you will get used to using the hammock as a prop to access deeper muscles. Build foundational strength in your arms and core for the more challenging aerial moves. An inversion at the end of the practice is optional. Level 1
Our Foundation classes teach you the basics of inverting with the hammocks, re-aligning the spine. Attention to detail, safety, and alignment will be the focus for this class. Every basic inversion will be covered, along with plenty of standing poses using the hammock as a prop. Every class will have 3 inversions, that might change from week to week. The hammock is also used to go deeper into stretches that are not accessed in a regular yoga class. Aerial Hammock yoga uses techniques from Yoga, pilates, and calisthenics to build your core. Each class ends in meditation, surrounded in fabric, and is wonderfully relaxing. Level 1
Want to build a strong core? This class uses traditional methods such as yoga and pilates while using the hammock to build a strong stable center. An ever-changing parade of drills and unique skills aimed to challenge a student’s balance, core, grip and ability to hold their body weight off the ground and inside the hammock. Feel free to take this class once you feel comfortable with the foundational entrances, exits and body positions taught in Aerial Hammock Foundation classes. Level 1/2
In this playful, high energy class, you will invert! Aerial Yoga combines vinyasa flow yoga and aerial swings to create a practice that is full of movement, playfulness and freedom. With the support of the hammocks, advanced poses such as Handstand, headstand, shoulder stand and peacock pose become easily accessible to all. This class moves at a faster pace, and will include more inversions. For most people we recommend that you attend 6 or more Foundation Aerial Hammock classes before this class, but if inversions are your thing, and you have a strong yoga practice this class is appropriate for you. If you are not sure how you will do inverting, or get motion sickness easily, or are brand new to aerial hammock it’s advised to attend a Level 1 Aerial Hammock class until you are totally comfortable with the hammock and being upside down. Level 1/2
