Yoga trend: Aerial yoga

  • May 11, 2012 - 2:17 PM

Turn yoga on its head and feel like a kid again. Known by some as anti-gravity yoga or cocooning, aerial yoga gets you off the floor and into a soft fabric sling hung from the ceiling. This free-flowing workout incorporates traditional yoga poses with the strength training and conditioning benefits of aerial arts, gymnastics, Pilates and calisthenics. There’s no doubt it’s a challenge, but if you can tolerate hanging upside down, you can do it. The weightless sensation is reminiscent of hanging from the monkey bars as a kid, so let go, dangle in the air and let the giggling ensue.
