A form of yoga, aerial yoga uses a hammock or yoga swing in order to allow you to perform a diverse range of poses that can traditionally not be done on a mat. To sum up, it is an amalgamation of yoga and pilates, aerial arts, and acrobatics. Practicing yoga has been considered as one of the best modes of fitness. With the advent of time, new forms of yoga have been emerging.
While traditional yoga is great for flexibility and easing the mind, Aerial yoga has a few additional benefits.
Here are a few listed benefits of aerial yoga.
When your body experiences movements and stretches it stimulates the digestive system. Aerial yoga can help you get rid of digestion-related issues like constipation and indigestion. Also, stretching can relax your abdomen and provide relief in many aspects.
Helps with breathing
Aerial yoga allows you to breathe deeply to an extent where you can improve your lung capacity. While hanging in the air, you will be able to totally relax. Doing this, you can easily maintain every pose, increasing your flexibility.
There will be a lot of stress relief while indulging in aerial yoga. It also helps your mind ease, especially when going through anxiety. It gives you an opportunity to meditate and focus on positive thoughts.
More than peace and relaxation, it helps in burning calories. Being suspended in the air requires you to have a stable core. During a 50-minute aerial yoga session, you have the potential burn 320 calories at least.
Great for back pain
It is especially great for those who are experiencing back pain. The hammock support offers far less pressure on your joints. This form of yoga does not sprain the spine.
