Aerial Yoga, written by CJ from Bikram Yoga Brighton, the hottest yoga in the south.

Aerial yoga is a unique technique which uses a low-hanging fabric trapeze/hammock to support the weight of the body.

With the weight of the body supported, you will learn how to achieve proper postural alignment through relaxation rather than effort, which will also enhance a relaxed and peaceful state of mind.

The best part of all is that you are working with gravity, so there is a feeling of weightlessness. This is a great way to take pressure off the back, neck and shoulders. Aerial Yoga also known as Anti-gravity Yoga is great for recuperating after an injury as well as improving strength and flexibility. These two factors are important for joint health.

Bikram Yoga Brighton has the first Aerial Yoga Studio in Sussex. Find details here. Special offer £45 for 4 classes.

What should I wear?

· Yoga type clothing.

· Short or long sleeve top (no vests) – this protects the armpits from any friction caused by the fabric.

· Clothing should be snug, but allow for movement of the body.

· Maximum weight for each hammock is 20st. Any concerns, please contact me to discuss prior to class.
