The yoga world is being turned upside down — literally — with DEFY GRAVITY YOGA!
Defy Gravity Aerial Yoga is a new type of yoga that uses a silk fabric hammock as a tool to help students achieve traditional yoga positions with ease, strengthen their bodies, get deeper into stretches and have immeasurable fun!
Defy Gravity Yoga classes are designed to increase one’s overall health and physical agility. This new and innovative form of yoga will help the body decompress through zero-compression inversion therapy, while having a playful yoga practice and strengthening from head to toe in the process.
No previous aerial, acrobatic, or yoga experience is necessary. Beginners and seasoned practitioners alike will find empowerment, fulfillment and fun in the swings unlike any practice they have tried before!
In our Aerial Yoga Classes, students use the silk hammock to help them hold their bodies in the shape of traditional yoga poses. The weight of the body is either partially or fully supported by the aerial yoga swing. Aerial yoga postures are designed to help you better understand the purpose of traditional yoga poses and find the alignment more easily. Advanced yoga postures can take years to learn, and even more time to understand and experience their benefits. The practice of aerial yoga is meant to help speed up that process in a safe manner. In one of our fun classes, students use both the hammock and the floor to immediately feel the improvement in their flexibility, strength and alignment. Your highly trained aerial yoga instructor will guide you through a flow that has you feeling safe and empowered to spread your wings and fly!

Our Aerial Yoga Hammocks
An aerial yoga hammock, sometimes called a yoga swing is a yoga prop that gives you a safe and fun way to strengthen each posture. It looks like a hammock but mainly supports you so that you can move your body horizontally, vertically or upside down. You are able to try any yoga posture with this prop. All the swings are made out of 100% silk and cleaned after every class. Every Defy Gravity Yoga swing is able to hold over 2000 pounds. The points in the ceiling where the swing has been placed were done by a professional contractor and certified by an engineer.
