5 important benefits of an Aerial Yoga Practice
- Total body workout.
- Improves flexibility.
- Aids digestion
- Good for the back
Remember visiting the circus and watching the trapeze artistes with awe? Well, a visit to any aerial yoga studio is bound to bring back those memories. However, aerial yoga is much more than circus tricks. It is actually a combination of traditional yoga poses, Pilates and dance, using a hammock.
Here’s a few good reasons why you should give it a go
Total body workout
The aerial yoga movements force every part of the body to move and stretch. So the muscles are toned and redefined, and the joints get strengthened and regenerated thanks to these movements.
Aerial yoga helps you move freely and by putting in less effort and counteracting gravity. Staying suspended in the air releases tension in the bones and muscles and increases flexibility. It also strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility.
The stretches and movements that are a part of the workout boost the digestive system, helping heal various digestion-related issues, including constipation and indigestion.
Good for the back
By hanging freely, you give the spine the chance to lengthen. There is less strain on your back while exercising, it eases tension in the spinal cord and hip joint.
It improves blood circulation, thereby combating aging and its symptoms. It detoxifies the circulatory and lymphatic systems which delays the onset of cardiovascular issues.
