Ashtanga Yoga developed by the late Pattabhi Jois, It is a highly structured style of yoga system, to unify body, mind, and spirit, Ashtanga yogi’s integrate all three components of the practice, including vinyasa, or movement linked with breath; bandhas, or energetic locks that direct the energy of the subtle body; and drishti, a one-pointed focus, which centers the mind. This system of practice ultimately leads to a cleansing of the body through heat, improves joint pain, carries impurities away from the body, and builds strength. If you’re looking to build strength and flexibility along with physical and mental endurance, consider trying Ashtanga yoga. However, since it is a very physically demanding sequence of poses, it may not be a great fit for yoga beginners.


In an aerial yoga class, you perform the same poses you do on a yoga matt,except you use a silk hammock that’s suspended from the ceiling as a prop to support you through the various flows. The purpose of the hammock is to help you improve flexibility and build strength, while allowing you to do more challenging poses without added pressure on your shoulders, spine and head. While everyone can benefit from aerial yoga classes, they’re especially great for people experiencing back pain. Let’s hang together and have fun!! For all levels!

What to Bring to Aerial Yoga Class

1. A water bottle.

Bring along a bottle of water so that you can rehydrate immediately after class. Try to avoid drinking too much water immediately before class begins. Inversions may be uncomfortable with a full stomach. (For the best results, hydrate regularly throughout the day.)

2. A yoga mat.

Even though you will be in a hammock for most of the class, you still need to bring your mat along to an aerial class. The mat will be used for floor exercises and as a soft surface below your hammock.

3. Yoga socks.

Yoga socks are good to have if you are worried about slipping during practice. You can buy them at studio also.

4. Form fitting clothing.

When dressing for your class, make sure that you have the right clothes for a good experience. Clothing should have at least short sleeves and come below the knee to avoid abrasions or rubbing. Make sure that clothes are form fitting so that they do not ride up an inopportune moments during inversions.

Aerial yoga classes also have a few “don’ts.” Leave this home for a better experience:

  • Perfumes and lotions. These can stain or weaken hammocks. Additionally, strong scents like perfumes or essential oils can linger in a hammock after you’ve gone.
  • Jewelry and belts. All jewelry should be removed and either left at home or kept safely in your bag. Jewelry can snag or tear hammocks, leading to expensive damage.
  • Your phone. Be sure to turn your phone off or set everything to silent before class begins.

Flow vinyasa is a very popular kind of Yoga and it’s a combination of Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga. Its practice style and difficulty are between the two. Focusing on the perfect combination of body stretch, strength and flexibility, and the concentration of practice. Flow yoga is more like an open practice method. Any yoga posture can be arranged in the sequence of flow yoga. This openness not only makes it easy for practitioners to get all-round exercise, but also increases the variability and interest of practice. At the same time, flow yoga is a practice with clear sense of rhythm. It has the beginning, the most intense and challenging part, and also has a clear ending. It gradually opens up all parts of the practitioner’s body, so that we can enter into the posture that is difficult to do at ordinary times. Through the combination of action and breathing, we can make the whole process as continuous as flowing water. We can feel the fast and slow rhythm match each other. In this process, we can train our softness, muscle endurance, concentration, and most importantly, we can feel the coordination between breathing and body. After a long time, we can feel the fluency brought by Flow Yoga!

It is suggested to have the basis of practicing yoga!
