Flying Yoga uses a low hung fabric hammock to support the weight of the participant into various yoga poses. The way that the hammock supports a person’s weight is what makes this movement art form so innovative and different from other forms of yoga. For example, participants can lift their leg into the sling while they rock it back and forth, losing up the hip joints. You will build strength, flexibility, and release compression from the body through stretching, inversions and core work, all while grounded or suspended in the hammock.

 

Flying Yoga postures will help provide participants a better understanding of traditional Yoga postures.  The muscle releases achieved in the air allows members to get a much deeper stretch in a traditional Yoga class.  Another unique opportunity Flying Yoga provides, is the chance to hang upside-down. Many have attested to wonderful benefits from hanging upside-down including a reversal of gravity’s usual effects on skin and wrinkles, increased circulation to the brain, helping memory and other brain functions, and helping to release tension in the core. Others have enjoyed healing of back pain due to the lengthening of the spine that happens when hanging upside-down.

Class Photos

  • •  What is Flying Yoga?

    Flying Yoga is a unique class blending yoga and aerial work that revolves around counteracting gravity. This practice uses a soft silk hammock to lift you off the ground and at the same time allowing for Yoga poses.

     

    By relieving compression due to the pull of gravity while on the ground, the spine is elongated and the shoulders straightened. The few inches of suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility.

     

    Poses are practiced in and around the fabric. Each hammock supports up to 2,000 lbs.

  • •  Can I Do Flying Yoga even though I have no Experience or am not Flexible?

    Flying Yoga can be a gentle and restorative class for those who wish to stretch and move at a slow and gentle pace; Flying Yoga can also be tailored to the more advanced practitioner looking to deepen and explore poses in a new way. This type of yoga is easy adaptable to any fitness level and a perfect place to begin working towards inversions with the gentle support of the fabric.

     

    Don't avoid yoga just because you think you aren't flexible. In fact, if you have tight muscles, yoga is just the thing to loosen you up. The point of yoga is not to show off how flexible you are, but rather to become more flexible over time. With the help of the fabric, you will be able to deepen your stretches and increase flexibility.

  • •  Can the hammock hold me?

    Flying Yoga hammocks are rated to hold up to 2,000 pounds each.
