Aerial yoga, alternatively termed as Antigravity Yoga is a hybrid gravity defying fitness training which is a combination of yoga postures, pilates, aerial acrobatics, ballet and calisthenics with the aid of silk hammocks suspended mid air. Crafted by American choreographer and fitness professional Christopher Harrison, this form of workout is gathering worldwide momentum and is being widely endorsed by Hollywood celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Pink, Mariah Carey and Lena Dunham who swear by its tremendous effectiveness. So let’s take a look at this hot new form of workout which is taking the world of fitness by a storm and make a quick list of the various benefits it has on offer.
A Complete Body Workout
Aerial yoga is designed to ensure that each and every body part is involved in the workout one way or the other. The body bends at various degrees with the help of a supportive hammock which facilitates better muscle stretching without the fear of sudden sprains. Aerial yoga offers an opportunity to achieve an overall muscle toning and joint regeneration. Its powerful yet stress free stretches firms up the body by allowing it to bend at angles which previously might have seemed impossible. A majority of participants soon discover stronger joints and firmer bodies over the course of just a couple of aerial yoga classes because the body has to work much harder when it is working against the forces of gravity.
