Come and join Richard in this exciting Introduction to Aerial Yoga. Lift your body to move as nature intended and give youself relief. It can be intimidating to try something new but we encourage you to give it a go in this safe environment where you can relax, create and be at ease.
Let's be honest you don't know what aerial yoga is. In truth nobody does. It's an infant in the yoga world. Like all infants it has a wealth of possibilities open to it - who knows what it might grow into? Here's what we know so far: Our bodies evolved to move in 360 degrees over millions of years. Suddenly we sit still all day and the unnatural-ness of this has been a disaster for our physical and, increasingly, our mental health.
On the physical level aerial yoga will allow your body to move as nature intended. Not just side to side and backwards and forwards but in spirals and circles. It's a blessed relief for an imprisoned body to have this opportunity. On the mental/emotional level the support that the swing provides, and the increased passivity that allows for, is very pleasurable, playful and health-giving. In an overheating world this brings a welcome and balancing coolness. It can certainly be intimidating to try something new like this but I would encourage you to give it a go. I aim to create a safe environment where you can relax, create and be at ease.
I encourage you to try Aerial Yoga - It's a liberating experience.
