About The Event
Aerial yoga offers another route by which to explore and experience the joys of yoga.
Initially used by BKS Iyengar in the form of ropes and slings suspended from walls and ceiling beams, aerial yoga has evolved into the form we now know which uses a fabric hammock offering a more comfortable experience in which you can derive many of the same benefits Iyengar realised.
The hammock is a supportive prop making it the perfect tool for yin and restorative style yoga. As we slow down and surrender tangled, taut tissues and physical tension melts away encouraged by the traction offered in both the wall and ceiling suspended slings. Targetting the deeper, denser tissues of the body yin poses using the hammock can help to increase range of motion. Longer holds allow for interospection and awareness of the mind's chatter creating mental balance and peace.
Moving through a range of postures first with the wall hammocks and then transferring them to the ceiling hooks you discover the subtle differences of each and how both set-ups can inform awareness and encourage the confidence needed to release and enjoy.
The session culimates with a delicious yoga nidra guiding you into deep, healing relaxation. As you climb inside the cocoon of the hammock, (and marvel at the clear view of the night sky above) exhale into rest, let go, get comfortable and enjoy the embrace of fabric yielding and melding to the shape of your body to the point that after a few minutes it begin to feels like a second skin enveloping you and breathing with you.
