What is a typical aerial yoga class like?
The start of an aerial yoga class is a general time for students to stretch and prepare for the yoga practice. The class will start off in unison and gradually climb into their trapezethat hangs from the ceiling.A normal aerial yoga class ends with the students wrapping themselves in the trapeze for a deep meditation. As will a traditional yoga class, the class will meditate for 1-5minutes. The class can engage in short “hmmms” and “ummms” and close the class withtheir hands to their hearts in the prayer position.As Gryphon Adams, an aerial yoga student, mentions, “A balanced approach to fitnessmay be the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth.”
