Aerial Wall Yoga

Aerial Yoga has become quite popular around the world. It’s an exercise meant to pull your spine, which creates more space between your vertebrae. It is said to remove compression that causes pain and balances the back. The inclusion of the wall allows you to hold poses between five to ten minutes as you’re being supported with belts. Holding the poses for an extended period of time allows your body to remember the posture even without the straps as well as helps you build flexibility and strength very quickly. If it sounds intimidating, rest assured that any beginners can join in.
