AeroZen is a playful and accessible form of aerial yoga. It uses a loop of aerial silk – also called a yoga hammock or swing – to re-imagine or refine traditional yoga postures. Classes take the form of flowing movement series, working with breath through a fluid sequence of postures. The hammock is rigged with the loop between knee and hip height, allowing us to move through grounded poses (most of the body in contact with the floor) to flying, inverted and floating postures (the whole body supported by the fabric).
Aerial yoga has multiple benefits for mind and body:

  • allowing deeper/passive stretching by working with gravity, offering greater release with minimal tension and reduced joint strain;
  • increasing core and upper body strength;
  • encouraging neutral alignment, creating space in the body and decompressing the spine;
    helping to build confidence, conquer fears, encourage curiosity and deepen relaxation.

Classes are 3:40pm – 5.10pm and 5.10pm – 6.40pm on Thursdays. Each class is limited to 8 spaces, and we are currently accepting expressions of interest.
