Aerial Yoga

CAMARO 2012

Aerial Yoga is a wonderful complement to your mat practice. It unwinds fascial knots and tangles, quiets the mind, builds core-strength, and leaves your body feeling integrated.   The basic yoga principles of ahimsa (non-harm) and mindfulness are woven throughout the sequences. The hammock, like other props in yoga, is intended to assist alignment and deepen your awareness. The fabric becomes a learning tool and students often find “Aha!” moments that bring new life and understanding to poses they previously feared or fought to achieve.   In our classes we will alternate between practicing with the hammock and practicing on the mat to play with gravity in different ways and to stay energetically grounded.
