It’s the celebrity workout that has models like Ashley Graham and Chrissy Teigen flying high. We’re talking aerial yoga — an anti-gravity fitness craze that’s now taking over North Texas.
Aerial yoga is essentially traditional yoga, but suspended in mid-air in a silk hammock.
“Elevating the yoga poses helps to deepen stretches and decompress your spine when hanging upside down,” said Jessica Harris, owner of Moxie Mischief Aerial Arts in Dallas. “It’s something different. You don’t even think you’re working out until the next day when you’re feeling sore.”
And count on feeling sore because aerial yoga is a full-body workout as well as a full-body stretch. Harris says you’ll feel muscles you never knew you had.
Whether you’re six years old or 60 years old, Harris says aerial yoga is a fun activity the whole family can enjoy, even if you have zero experience.
“Some people come in with a great tolerance for being upside down. Some people have to build it a little. It is something that you progress pretty quickly,” she said.
