Benefits of Kids Aerial Yoga
Kids Aerial Yoga combines well-known Yoga poses with the added support of a Yoga Hammock. Your child will have the opportunity to improve their strength, flexibility, coordination, stamina, and fitness in a fun environment. During our five-week block, we will cover breathing & relaxation techniques, yoga poses (asanas) on the floor and in the hammocks and beginners aerial tricks – including basic inversions & spins.
There are so many incredible health benefits linked to participating in an Aerial Yoga class.
Here are a few examples:
- Full Body Workout
- Strengthening Joints
- Helps to decompress the spine
- Improves concentration and memory
- Relieves stress & anxiety
- Encourages playfulness and creativity
This class includes inversions. Inversions are great and offer a number of health benefits but some health conditions can make inversions unsafe. If your child has any medical conditions, please inform the instructor before the start of the class and they will give your child some alternative poses that will not put them in harms way.
If your child has any other following conditions, please contact your GP before signing them up to this class
- Hypertension/High or Low blood pressure
- Heart disease/ stroke
- Recent surgery
- Other conditions – Please consult your GP
