Sundays – 10am-5pm
The VataAsana™ Aerial Yoga Method is an alignment based yoga, with movement and breath based practice. VataAsana™ Aerial Yoga postures are done in the air creating space, detoxification and balance through Aerial Yoga. Practitioners lean how to blend traditional yoga asana with acrobatic elements while focused on alignment and guided by breath. Working with gravity allows for space to be created in the joints, and for lengthening in the muscles and ligaments. The Aerial Yoga wraps rest on accu-pressure points bringing energetic balance to the meridians in the body. Compression free inversions boost the lymphatic system and detoxify the body while giving traction to the spine and hydrating the vertebral discs. An overall increase in flexibility, increase in the circulatory system, and mood boost are among some of the additional benefits to a regular practice.
