New VaihAyasa (Aerial Yoga) Class
The Sanskrit word for Aerial Yoga is VaihAyasa, which means moving or suspending in the air. VaihAyasa uses a soft fabric hammock that allows the student to deeply relax into proper alignment without strain to the joints. Using the fabric to assist with inversion allows the spine and neck to decompress. The weight of your body supported by the fabric creates space in the neck and spine. Stretching is easier and benefits the connective tissue, the fabric is a wonderful prop that allows deep stretching, strengthening and releasing.
The benefits of VaihAyassa (Aerial Yoga):
- Decompresses the spine
- Deeper stretches to release connective tissue
- Creates space in the body
- Safe traction in the neck by pulling gently on the spine to open the vertebral column
- Eliminate toxins and lactic acid build-up
- Clearer mind
- Glowing skin and reduced wrinkles
Classes are limited to 16. Please sign-up ahead of time for Saturday Aerial Yoga classes, as these classes fill up quickly. Let your instructor know about medical issues such as glaucoma, heart problems, or dizziness.
Please note: The fabric can snag easily, so please do not wear jewelery and keep nails trimmed. Also wear a shirt that covers your underarms for comfort. Don't eat or drink right before class.
