What is aerial yoga?

Aerial Yoga is a relatively new approach to a traditional yoga practice.  We use a silk fabric called a ‘hammock’ or ‘swing’ to support the weight of our bodies, helping us achieve various postures with more depth, ease and excitement. See the benefits of aerial yoga.

Will the swing hold me? What's the weight limit?

YES! Safety is our NUMBER 1 priority.

 

Each piece of equipment has been engineered to hold several thousand pounds. The full structure was designed, installed, and inspected by certified engineers. All exercise entails some level of risk, and aerial yoga is no different.

 

All instructors are 200 hour certified yoga instructors that have an additional 50 hours of training and certifications in aerial yoga instruction.  It is essential that you inform your instructor of any existing medical issues, injuries, or other concerns before beginning class and review the “Can I take aerial yoga?” section below to ensure you do not have a condition that may prevent your practice.

Who can take aerial yoga?

Both men and women at least 15 years of age are able to take an aerial yoga class. There are a few contraindications that might keep someone away from the aerial yoga swing.
