Aerial yoga, also called Flying Yoga, is a practice that will change your life and offer you a new way to find health and therapeutic benefits in yoga. Aerial yoga offers similar benefits and enjoyments of regular yoga, but it also has some additional benefits :
Total body workout
Aerial yoga gives you more space to move around. You aren’t limited by just the floor! This let your entire body get an excellent workout. You can easily work multiple body parts at once.
Aerial yoga helps you to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity. Suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and deepening your practice. Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility.
Better Focus & Muscles Strength
Because gravity is working harder on your body than usual, your muscles work harder too. Aerial yoga is also a great core workout because you have to engage your core muscles to balance and stabilize yourself during your yoga session.
Heals back problems
It gives you the chance to hang freely, allowing your spine to lengthen and decompress tight joints. With less strain on your back while doing the exercises, it eases tension in the spinal cord and hip joint, helping you feel better and relieving back, neck, shoulder and hip pain.
Releases Happy Hormones
Another key benefit of doing aerial yoga is that it gets your adrenaline going while going against gravity. It also releases “happy” hormones like serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin, dopamine, which boost your mood and help you feel more energetic.
In Aerial yoga focusing on each yoga pose helps improve your art of concentration. It will also improve cognition and help your brain stay in good shape. You can also slow down age-related mental decline with exercise and yoga.
Aerial yoga is all-natural anti-aging. It denotes fighting against the aging affects of gravity. As the body ages, the joints need to be pushed to maintain mobility. The muscles need to be worked to maintain proper alignment and the discs need to be hydrated to minimize deterioration. Aerial Yoga does all this.
Aerial yoga also improves the circulation of blood, thus combating aging and its symptoms.
When your flexibility improves, so does your balance. This also happens when your muscles get stronger. Having a good balance will limit your chances of falls and slips during daily tasks.
The different types of stretches and movements help improve the digestive system, thus helping in healing various digestion-related issues, including constipation and indigestion.
Deep and controlled breathing is a big part of yoga. And when you’re up in the air in aerial yoga, it’s even more crucial. It will let you move into new poses with ease. You will also be able to strengthen your heart, reducing the risk for cardiovascular-related diseases.
It’s no secret that aerial yoga looks awesome. But like all new activities, it takes time and patience. Just be sure to stick to it and be real with yourself. When you finally master a few moves, you will be so proud! It also doubles as a wonderful confidence boost.
