What is Aerial Yoga?2024-01-22T18:00:23-06:00

Aerial yoga is a type of yoga that combines traditional yoga poses with the use of a hammock or silk fabric suspended from the ceiling. Also known as anti-gravity yoga, it allows practitioners to perform various yoga poses with the support and assistance of the hammock, which helps to deepen stretches, improve flexibility, and enhance strength.

There are various types of aerial yoga. Aerial can be fun and challenging or relaxing and restorative. Either way, it provides a unique and creative way to experience traditional yoga postures in a suspended position.

Aerial yoga is not the same as aerial silks and other aerial arts. Aerial yoga is grounded in traditional yoga principles and focuses on breath, mindful movement, and sensation, rather than artistry, performance, or circus tricks.

Is There A Weight Limit For Aerial Yoga?2024-01-11T18:11:30-06:00

While the hammocks are expertly installed, secure, and capable of safely supporting thousands of pounds of dynamic weight, individuals with a body weight exceeding 200 lbs are advised to consider booking a private appointment. This recommendation is not meant to discourage your practice; rather, it ensures a personalized and tailored experience for your safety and enjoyment.

Can I arrange a private class/workshop event for my friends and family?2024-02-13T19:01:47-06:00

Yes. I have accommodated many private events for small groups. The aerial yoga group size is limited. Please reach out to me at contact@jerilynfrisbie.com for more information.

What should I wear for an aerial yoga session?2024-03-24T09:01:01-05:00

Please wear clothing that is snug to the body and covers the arms and legs. Tight fitting yoga pants or leggings and a t-shirt (long or short-sleeved) are perfect. Please wear clothing that covers the knees and the armpits. A sleeveless tank won’t provide enough coverage. You’ll need to wear or bring a sleeved shirt.  

Please don’t wear any item of clothing that has a zipper, snaps, buttons, or anything else that could catch on the hammock. 

Please leave all jewelry at home. This includes rings, bracelets, watches, earrings, etc. You’ll want to refrain from wearing any items that could restrict movement and/or snag the fabric of the hammock. 

Why are Aerial Yoga classes more expensive than mat-based yoga classes?2024-02-13T19:00:16-06:00

The cost difference between aerial yoga and mat-based yoga can be attributed to several factors:

  1. Specialized Equipment: Aerial yoga involves the use of specialized equipment with hammocks suspended from the ceiling. These materials are obtained from quality vendors to ensure appropriate safety standards are met.
  2. Installation and Maintenance: Setting up and maintaining the apparatus for aerial yoga requires expertise and effort. This includes properly securing the anchors in the ceiling and ensuring the equipment is regularly inspected for safety. In addition, hammocks should be sanitized between classes and regularly taken down to be thoroughly washed and steamed.
  3. Training and Certification: Beyond training and certification as a registered yoga teacher, any teacher offering aerial classes should receive additional, aerial-specific training and certification. This is not always the case, but it absolutely should be. If you’re considering an aerial yoga class, please inquire with the teacher about her level of training.
  4. Limited Class Size: Aerial yoga classes often have smaller class sizes due to the need for more space between participants and more attention towards each student to ensure safety.
  5. Insurance Costs: Due to the elevated risk associated with suspended activities, insurance costs for aerial yoga classes are significantly higher than those for mat-based yoga.
