Everyone in the hammock! 5 reasons to do air yoga

What is Air Yoga?

Air Yoga or Antigravity Yoga is a fitness program that was developed in the early 90s in the United States. Antigravity combines yoga practices, acrobatic elements, stretching, Pilates and callanetics. Unlike classical trends, special equipment (silk hammocks) is used in air yoga. Such a device allows you to practice asanas that are not available in conventional yoga.

Maria Komolova, master trainer of the group programs direction of the federal network of fitness clubs X-Fit: During air yoga, you restore the circulatory system, improve flexibility and joint mobility. Also, air yoga is also self-massage, because after some asanas you feel tingling and stretching of the muscles of the spine.

Antigravity yoga can be used as a functional training, so how different muscle groups are involved in different exercises and postures. Also you put less pressure on the joints compared to regular yoga - the fabric of the hammock is very soft and elastic and less stress on the back and neck.

However, to inverted positions in aeroyogait is better to be wary of those who have recently undergone surgery or have eye diseases, glaucoma, and pressure drops. If you have injected botex, it is recommended to do aero yoga no earlier than four days after the injecting procedure.

The fourth reason - it improves mood

Feeling your body hovering above the ground is great and unforgettably! Depression and stress will disappear instantly. We cannot but agree with this, because aero yoga really produces a cradle effect - during training you return to an atmosphere of complete comfort and safety, which contributes to the improvement of the psycho-emotional state.

Fifth reason - inverted poses

The hallmark of antigravity yoga is inverted postures that are not available in any of the other sports. When you are in the upside down position, your organs rest from the constant pull of the force of gravity, the vessels of the brain are cleansed (which helps to improve mental activity), the endocrine system is stimulated, tension in the lower back disappears, posture improves, edema and cramps pass. You can endlessly enumerate the advantages of inverted asanas, but it seems to us that these will be enough for you to definitely want to try air yoga.

Tips for beginners

I recommend starting 2-3 times a week. The optimal time for training is an hour and a half. During the aero yoga, the main thing is to concentrate, agree with your body and listen carefully to the trainer's recommendations !.

Advice: it is better to wear a sports elastic top made of non-slip fabric that is close to the body and the same leggings. No shoes required for practice.
