FLIGHT FLOW is your opportunity to soar. Let go of preconceived notions and prepare to defy gravity as you move through a yoga flow, taking periodical breaks to see the world from a different, upsidedown perspective.
This is an innovative yoga, fitness, and aerial arts training class that combines strength, flexibility, balance, and spinal decompression. With the support of a 9-foot "silk" hammock, you will go deeper into yoga poses, challenge your abdominals like no other workout and get the benefit of an intense cardiovascular workout that won't hurt your spine. When was the last time you hung upside down? Workout like a grown-up but feel like a kid.
According to a study by American Council on Exercise (ACE), participants of Aerial Yoga burned an average of 320 calories in a 50 min session and yielded cardiovascular effects in the range of low to moderate intensity exercise. "After the six-week-long Aerial Yoga program, participants experienced significant improvements in several health risk factors such as body weight, body-fat percentage, and blood pressure. "
