Why is this beneficial?
We have found, and also hear from our customers, that using an Aerial Yoga Hammock relieves stress, helps with flexibility, and increases strength. If you find you are on the computer most of the day, your lower back, shoulders, and neck are taking a lot of strain. Spending just a few minutes stretching with the Aerial Yoga Hammock will help your back, neck or shoulder muscles engage in a different way. You can do an action similar to swimming by kicking your feet as you are suspended in the hammock. Or, you can sit on the floor and have your neck supported in the hammock for a release of neck tension. There are stretches, spine twists, and core conditioning you can try. Some of our customers say the Aerial Yoga Hammock is their “home spa”.
Other Aerial Hammock Uses:
There are many different styles of Aerial Yoga in use. Some studios have a Flow Yoga approach, some use a more Fitness based program. Some studios prefer the Flying Hammock that offers handles for support in particular the plank or push-up pose which is extremely good conditioning for core muscles.
We also find the hammock can be used to support a limb or to assist in regaining joint mobility post surgery. This may require some assistance from a partner.
