Elevate your Asana

The Raglan Yoga Loft recently hosted a one day series of aerial yoga classes – a new and unique yoga experience soon to join Raglan’s vibrant yoga community.

This fun and innovative form of yoga was developed 10 years ago as a way of offering worn-out athletes a gentler and more restorative work-out. It has evolved into a way of experiencing yoga using a hammock as a prop, allowing the body to get deeper into postures while partially or fully supporting body weight.

Feeling the support and cocoon-like nature of the hammock brings a fun, playful and child-like feeling to the practice, while building strength and flexibility. A part of every aerial class is the opportunity to experience an inversion – hanging upside down in a way that allows the spine to lengthen & de-compress, and the body and mind a host of benefits!

From December on, come and discover the practice and play of aerial yoga at the Raglan Yoga Loft.

Classes range from gentle restorative to stronger dynamic practices. For more information contact Lou – raglanaerialyoga@gmail.com/021 188 2994.
