Welcome to the world of Aerial Yoga, Pilates and Aerial Play!!
The evolution of Yoga and all the props used in a Yoga practice has brought us this wonderful piece of equipment to take your favourite Yoga and Pilates postures off the ground.
We will be exploring both mat based and non mat based postures with various options given to those who might not feel like performing certain movements in a silk.
Silks (or hammocks) are fantastic for elongating and releasing the spine, strengthening legs, arms and core, and at the same time offering a unique peaceful place for relaxation and mindfulness.
Tricks, flips and aerial play (headstands, upside down postures and complex tricks), that will be incorporated into the sessions, are great fun and will make you want to learn and perfect new postures in the air. We will not be spending a lot of time on them during the class due to their nature and mixed abilities of the participants in the sessions, but we will have special Workshops and Aerial Play sessions focusing mostly on this aspect of Aerial Yoga. It does not mean they will be totally excluded from the general classes – there will be good few minutes there and then dedicated to practicing the movements.
I will also be introducing Aerial Pilates. I have been teaching Pilates for almost 10 years now and I am very excited to transfer my experience of mat and equipment based Pilates to teaching it with the help of the hammocks.
If you have never tried the silks – you should definitely give it a go! It is such a wonderful and diverse piece of equipment that you will never be bored of it no matter how many sessions you have attended.
I could write a lot on how great the sessions are, but you really need to experience it for yourself to get a proper feel for the Aerial Yoga and Pilates. It might not be for everyone, but those who like it tend to become so hooked on the Aerial practice that it almost replaces everything else.
I would encourage you to attend the workshops before coming to the classes to experience it firsthand.

Classes and workshops are limited to certain number of participants and I hope you will understand the reasons behind the ‘no refunds policy’: I love what i do, but I also run a business.
I am very excited about the aerial sessions, and hope you are as well!
Looking forward to seeing you all in the hammocks!
