Aerial Yoga is the latest offering on the road to good health. Certain aspects of our lives like food, fashion and similarly, fitness require constant reinvention. As times change, trends change too and evolve creating a demand for solutions that suit contemporary needs. Any practice that is ingrained into our daily habits tends to become lacklustre if it continues to be an exercise in monotony. To cater to changing tastes, dynamic innovation is key.
Aerial Yoga perfectly fills the gap with this new and exciting fitness methodology. Its high- quality yoga hammock acts like a swing or soft trapeze, supporting the hips for forwarding bends and backward bends. Aerial Yoga provides a total body workout for practitioners of all ages. Movements performed in this form ensure that every part of the body moves and stretches. This tones the muscles, strengthen and lubricates the joints.
