Sample Sequence Aerial Yoga

is a relatively new form of yoga that combines traditional yoga poses with aerial arts. Practitioners use a fabric hammock-like apparatus to perform inverted and suspended poses. The hammock provides support and stability, which can make poses more accessible and less challenging. Aerial Yoga is said to improve strength, flexibility, and balance. It can also help to improve spinal alignment and posture.
