Aerial Yoga class is for people of all shapes and sizes. No matter if you are bendy and strong, or quite the opposite -you are welcome at The Last Carnival Aerial Yoga classes. We are here to help you meet your personal flexibility and strength goals, progressing at a rate that you are comfortable with. Listen to your body. Whether you need to lighten or deepen a stretch, the Aerial Yoga instructor can modify any of the poses to help you achieve this.

aerial yogaBring your yoga practice to new heights; bring it into the air. Aerial Yoga uses the aerial silks to support and suspend you just a few feet from the ground during different poses and stretches. Some movements will be grounded postures where we will use the silks to deepen a stretch while standing or laying on the floor. Aerial yoga includes both active and passive flexibility poses. Building strength in your routine helps with the longevity of your practice and helps to prevent injuries as well. Flight in your flexibility and fitness routine is designed to help you find your true potential and to help you achieve advanced yoga and contortion postures that may have been difficult to achieve using traditional methods and deepen stretches in ways that you may not be able to on your own.

In contrast to regular yoga practice on the floor in which the body exhibits tension against the pull of gravity, Aerial Yoga releases body tension. Students are able to naturally achieve proper body positioning and alignment through the straightening of the spine and shoulders. The pull of gravity, when the body is in a hanging position, naturally decompresses the spine and the body. With Aerial Yoga you can increase flexibility and strengthen muscles without straining them.

No prerequisite required. Sihka has designed this class by combining her studies of  flexibility and strength, dance, aerial, and contortion to bring you the best possible aerial yoga experience.
