When was the last time you hung out, upside down? We’re talking fully supported and suspended in the air upside down, with a new found sense of freedom. Welcome to Aerial Yoga…It’s just a few feet off the ground, and it can turn your practice on its head, literally!
A typical Aerial Yoga class would usually start and end with relaxation inside the hammock. This is your time to chill out and check in. What’s amazing about this relaxation, is that you are essentially floating inside a hammock where you feel cocooned, safe and weightless. It’s the perfect place to let your tensions melt away.
When it comes to the asana, you’ll meet lots of your traditional postures. Fancy trying an aerial Sun salutations or Downward Dog? Adding a hammock to your practice is a great way to mix up your routine and add a new challenge to a familiar pose. The hammock can offer additional support when needed, as well as assisting a deeper stretch in poses you’re more comfortable with. It's a great way to build strength and confidence and most importantly it’s fun, something which we seem to lose a little as adults.
Our sessions are suitable for beginners with no experience required. We run regular classes and workshops open to all. On top of this, we host parties, corporate team building events and offer performances for special occasions! Contact us for more information.
Wear comfortable clothing that you can move and stretch in. In Aerial Yoga we spend some time upside down so we recommend fitted clothing to avoid loose clothing falling down or getting tangled in the fabric.
We provide all the equipment you could need.
Bring some water with you to stay hydrated throughout class and a jumper for relaxation.
For most people, Aerial Yoga is a safe form of exercise. However, some people that would be best to avoid Aerial Yoga completely. For example, if you have glaucoma, high or low blood pressure or any neurological conditions. Please check with a medical professional to make sure aerial yoga is suitable for you if you have any other health issues.
In addition, if you have recently had surgery you should consult with your doctor before attending class.
We would not recommend starting Aerial Yoga if you're pregnant. Unfortunately lots of poses within a regular classes would not be suitable during pregnancy. However, many women who are experienced aerialists who become pregnant often continue practicing with modified versions of poses.
All physical activity carries some form of risk, with that said, Aerial yoga is an incredibly safe exercise. All our equipment has been tested and purpose built for Aerial Yoga. On top of our professional equipment and regular checks, we also make sure our instructors are highly qualified to assure the safety of our students.
We recommend that you leave at least two hours between a main meal and attending class. Digestion of food requires energy and when you do attend class straight after a meal, your energy goes to the muscles you’re exercising and the body can’t digest the food properly.
Also, one of the amazing things about Aerial Yoga is the ease of inverting (relaxing upside down) which is ideal when the body is trying to digest.
You do not need to be flexible to practice Aerial Yoga; increased flexibility will come in time as you practice. Most of us spend our day sitting down at work or engaging in repetitive motion that shortens muscles. Practicing yoga enables you to lengthen your muscles and release built up toxins.
We’re located next to a large building which has communal changing rooms, showers and toilets. This space is not attached to the studio, so best to visit before you check in for class. The facilities are located inside the Innovation Centre, the large grey building next to the studio.
We’re located on Howbery Business Park which has plenty of free parking available. Please make sure you park within a bay and not blocking anyone else's vehicle.
