First time: Aerial Yoga

{The Yoga Studio…So Peaceful in Here}

{I Am a Monkey!}

{Much harder than it looks!}

So happy to have finally tried Aerial Yoga! Let’s just say it’s much harder than it looks. I was thankful the class started with some breathing exercises to get the body relaxed and ready for suspension. Since it was my first time, I was probably more scared than most-mainly that I would fall out and hit the ground head first! Luckily this didn’t happen! Coming from FNS all week, I was a bit sore. This was perfect because it literally streches your ENTIRE body out. You know the feeling of being sore and thinking, “Ohhhh, that’s what that muscle is for?” Sort of what I am feeling this week. The teacher was great, helped us newbies out and said it would get better each time you go. The rope was a little awkward feeling around my hips at first, but she said this was normal. The poses inside the hammock allow you to relax and literally let go of everything. The only thing that was a bit scary (aside from thinking I was going to fall) was the head rush feeling of being upside down for so long….Controlling the breath helped with this unpleasant feeling! My favorite part was the last 5 minutes of breathing completely inside the hammock, like a cacoon. To be able to let go, breath and dive deep into peaceful thoughts is absolutely refreshing. Overall, it was great and a nice finish to my week! I purchased the new student 5 classes for $50 and will be back next week! Who wants to join me?
