Decompression of the Spine

One of the most significant benefits of aerial yoga is the decompression of the spine. Inversions, such as the supported shoulder stand and the plow pose, allow the spine to elongate and release tension. This can lead to improved posture, increased flexibility, and reduced back pain.

Increased Flexibility and Range of Motion

Aerial yoga allows for a greater range of motion than traditional yoga. The hammock provides support and allows the body to move into deeper stretches and poses, leading to increased flexibility and range of motion.

Core Strengthening

The instability of the hammock requires the use of the core muscles to maintain balance and stability. This leads to improved core strength and stability, which is essential for overall health and injury prevention.

Improved Circulation and Lymphatic Flow

Inversions and deep stretches in aerial yoga can improve circulation and lymphatic flow. Inversions promote blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function, and can help reduce swelling in the legs and feet by improving lymphatic flow.

Stress Relief and Improved Mood

Aerial yoga can also have a positive impact on mental health. The deep stretches and inversions can help reduce stress and anxiety, while the physical activity releases endorphins, improving mood and overall well-being.
