"YOUR WINGS ALREADY EXIST. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FLY"
Aerial Yoga / Pilates
Aerial yoga is yoga that uses a silk hammock as a tool to help students achieve and deepen poses. It combines traditional yoga poses with moves inspired by pilates. Your body weight is supported by the hammock as you move through a range of yoga postures including hamstring stretches, hip openers, inversions, core-stregthening exercises and restorative postures. Aerial yoga is thought to be particularly beneficial for those who spend time sitting for extended periods, or who have back pain because it has a decompressing effect on the body.
Love and praise: I just participated in my first aerial yoga class last night at Penticton Classical Pilates and I was blown away! It was amazing and I feel longated and stretched and worked out plus I had the most blissful night of sleep! Huge bonus. I highly recommend it.
Thank you Tracy and Sharon, you are the best!
