Aerial yoga originated in New York sometime in 2007 and can now be found almost anywhere in the world. It is still most commonly known as aerial yoga, but has picked a few more names up along the way. Some people also refer to it as flying yoga or anti-gravity yoga. It’s a form of yoga that combines traditional poses with Pilates and dance, while students are suspended in the air.
The belts are able to support up to 300 kilos, so all shapes and sizes can enjoy it. Yoga students are able to suspend themselves by their hips, which accommodates a greater variety of poses and bends within their workout.
People will find aerial yoga to be relaxing and revitalizing, while at the same time they are improving their balance and strength. It a sport that allows you to take a step back from life, and think. Like all yoga classes it’s also a great opportunity to build confidence and meet new friends that you connect with.

FlyHighYoga™ offers all of the positive things we love about regular yoga, and then steps it up a notch. As you take flight, you’ll find that in taking part in an aerial yoga class is unlike any other form of yoga. Students aren’t worrying about gravity or balance, which in turn allows for the ability to experience greater flexibility and freedom of movement.
Aerial yoga enthusiasts also rave about the heightened sense of focus they experience in trying new aerial poses. Traditional yoga can get redundant, but the use of an aerial yoga hammock allows for hundreds of new possibilities. Your strength increases after just a few aerial yoga classes. Due to the lack of gravity, which causes muscles to work harder in order to keep the body stable, and balanced.
THE HEALTH BENEFITS ARE ENDLESS
Yoga improves flexibility, balance, and strength. Depending on the pose being held, 80% of your body weight can be relieved by using a yoga hammock. When aerial yogis invert their bodies in a pose, they are stretching and bending their muscles and joints. This aids in rehabilitation, and helps to decompress the spine, without needing to worry about balance.
FlyHighYoga™ is like traditional yoga in that it improves respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems, due to an increased blood flow. Forms of yoga can treat pain from arthritis, and reduce food cravings, which leads to healthy weight loss. Anti gravity yoga is particularly effective in the improvement of emotional and mental health, in addition to its many physical benefits.
