The Arty Attic Aerial Skills in Somerset

Life is so much better when viewed upside down!

“What are you up to tomorrow?”

“Oh, you know, just hanging around!”

– Jules

Have you ever dreamt of being able to fly? Well, now you can leave your yoga mat at home and defy gravity with flying yoga!

Whether you want to feel like a flying superhero or you just want to switch things up a bit, aerial yoga can take your yoga routine to new heights. This uplifting practice is a great way to increase physical stamina and strength while boosting confidence and body positivity. Aerial yoga consists of the same poses as a traditional yoga class.

The main difference is that you swap a yoga mat for a silk hammock. The hammock is suspended from the ceiling and supports your body as you work through each flow. The hammock allows you to sink deeper into each pose, which can help build strength and improve flexibility. It’s also a great prop if you want to try more challenging poses without putting extra pressure on your head, shoulders, or spine.

At The Arty Attic, classes are offered for all skill levels. A beginner-friendly class can help you learn the basics as you find yourself dangling from the ceiling like something out of Moulin Rouge!

Almost anyone can do this. Move through stretches, build strength, and improve balance, all while being totally supported. Engage the world in a new, fun way. Yes, even build brain cells while you strengthen your core. Gently or flying! There is something for everyone!

Remember that life begins at the end of your comfort zone and that limitations only exist if you let them!

What are the benefits of Aerial Yoga?

Great for Back Sufferers

While everyone can benefit from aerial yoga classes, they’re especially great for people experiencing back pain. Because of the hammock’s support, far less pressure is placed upon your joints. Aerial yoga also doesn’t strain the spine, which is a huge advantage for back pain sufferers. You’ll be able to obtain a full body workout without any discomfort.

Helps with Breathing

Controlled breathing is an important aspect of yoga. Aerial yoga allows you to breathe deeply without any restriction. While hanging in the air, you’ll be able to totally relax. Aerial yoga enables you to comfortably maintain every pose. Over time, you can even expect to improve your lung capacity.

Enhances Flexibility

To maintain a great range of motion, you must consistently work on your flexibility. Aerial yoga class will help you to safely stretch your muscles and tendons. Being suspended in the air gives you more space to move. This means you’ll be able to perform yoga poses that you can’t do on the floor.

Stress Relief

Don’t underestimate the stress relief that stems from participating in aerial yoga classes. If you happen to be going through a rough time or experiencing anxiety attacks, aerial yoga will help put your mind at ease. It gives you an opportunity to meditate and focus on positive thoughts (while hanging upside-down!). Beyond just stress relief, the pros of being inverted include increased balance, more energy, and better focus. When you’re inverted, blood flows to your brain and provides oxygen needed for brain function.

Burns Calories

Aerial yoga offers more than just peace and relaxation. It also helps burn calories through the balance it takes to stay in control of the silks. Being suspended in the air requires a stable core as you change positions in a way a mat yoga class can’t. In fact, a study performed by the American Council on Exercise shows aerial yoga rivals the effectiveness of aerobic exercise. During a 50 minute aerial yoga session, you have the potential to melt away 320 calories. After six weeks, your risk of cardiovascular disease will be significantly lower.
