What's the Difference Between Aerial Yoga & Aerial Silks?
Aerial Silks with help build strength, flexibility and endurance. It uses your arms, torso, hips and core to hold your own body weight on the suspended silks as you begin to learn the basics of acrobatics in the air. Although more demanding, it makes working out exciting.
Aerial Yoga uses yoga techniques of breath, alignment, flow and mindfulness. Each participant has their own silk to work from, and the suspended yoga hammock acts as an assisting device during various yoga positions to allow for greater range of movement (including some inversions). If you are nervous about Aerial Silks, Aerial Yoga is a great introduction.
