As the yoga trend continues to grow among the community, more studios are also opening to cater to the crowd. Thus, the multiple types of yoga being introduced in KL. If you think yoga is a couple of stretching and downward dogs, have you seen aerial yoga?
When you think balancing on a ‘hammock’ from the ceiling is child’s play — think again. Aerial yoga, or also known as anti-gravity yoga, uses both traditional yoga poses and Pilates exercises, whilst balancing on a silk hammock. As you lift yourself up onto the hammock, your core and upper body strength are put to the test.
Benefits are definitely aplenty; aerial yoga improves flexibility, mental focus, helps relieve compression in the spine and stress, building core and upper body strength along the way.
If you’re already a regular yogi, we highly recommend going against gravity and try it out. Here are five aerial yoga studios in KL.
