I have been teaching and taking some type of silks class for a few years now. I started with silks and loved it but often found I needed more upper body strength. Because of work requirements, I wasn't able to go to class as much as I needed to really improve my strength or technique.
Then I found aerial yoga! Aerial yoga is practiced in a hammock style silk. It is more attainable for most people and incorporates my passion of yoga! Practicing/teaching aerial yoga 3 - 4 times a week has really improved by flexibility and strength.
Aerial yoga helps improve:
Flexibility: lengthens ligaments and stretches muscle tissue.
Strength: improve core, leg, upper body strength.
Massage Fascia: it's like a deep tissue massage!
And ask any aerial artist, it can definitely get your heart rate up too! Come try and see for yourself!
