Benefits of Aerial Yoga or Antigravity Yoga:
It is a complete exercise: all the muscles of the body are toned, while flexibility is improved and tension is released in conflictive areas at the physical level (such as the cervical, lumbar and other joints). For this reason, it is frequently indicated for physical rehabilitation.
We improve our organic functioning: aerial yoga collaborates with the elimination of toxins through perspiration, at the same time that it reactivates blood circulation and helps maintain controlled oxygenation. All of this results in healthier skin, an orderly digestive system, and a clear mind.
Healthy body, healthy mind: Like most physical exercises, it helps to combat stress, with the extra ingredient that provides the concentration of yoga and the sensation of being -literally- in the air.
We develop skills: Facing the yoga asanas on the hammocks makes us know new postures, while we improve our concentration, flexibility and balance
We improve our mood and confidence: No one doubts that yoga helps improve our mood and our spiritual balance, while filling us with energy. But do it in the air, with inverted postures and defying the feeling of height.
