Defy Gravity Aerial Yoga is a new type of Yoga that uses a fabric hammock, sometimes called a yoga swing, as a tool to help students achieve the traditional Yoga positions.
Yes! We offer classes for all fitness levels. Provided one does not have any physical abnormalities, anyone who can do at least 2 consecutive push ups can do Defy Gravity Yoga.
It depends on which antigravity yoga class you take. No matter what, YOU monitor your own resistance so each class is as hard as or as easy as you choose to work.
Yes! Everyone leaves the class a success! Since this is a YOGA class there is no competition nor ego encouraged. Everyone works at their own pace.
Wear workout wear that covers armpits and legs. Cotton or cotton blend fabric is best (non-slippery). Not too loose clothing. Gloves and Socks can be worn as well. NO JEWELRY
Water, sweat towel and a mat (if you want your own – we also have mats available for use in the studio!)
Nope! We welcome beginners and yogis of all-levels.
This depends on your fitness level. We recommend that everyone start with the beginners aerial yoga class or a private course before advancing. Defy Gravity’s beginners courses (offered Tuesdays at 10:15am, Wednesdays at 4:30pm & Thursdays at 6:30pm) are the least challenging of all the classes.
We recommend having something in the stomach to stave off dizziness, however, we do not recommend a big meal.
If one has a strong propensity for dizziness or a “hips over head” spatial awareness style dyslexia this is not the technique for them.
You will feel taller and lighter. Your muscles will have a pump and you will be refreshed!
Every portion of the silk yoga swing is rated for over 2000 pounds. The points in the ceiling where our aerial yoga equipment is suspended have been placed by a professional contractor and certified by an engineer.
The difference between fear and excitement in the body is relaxation. In Defy Gravity Yoga, we bring ourselves to presence before we begin class. During an inversion you are only 3 inches off the ground.
