it’s an aerial yoga practice, a fun and cognitive training that helps to connect your own body in a complete approach.
With the use of the hammock, the practice combines strength and flexibility, challenging ourselves in a matter of coordination and orientation into the space around.
The weight of the body and the force of gravity are used to improve the posture and body alignment.
A regular practice brings long-term benefits: revitalize the spine, relax tensions, and give relief to joints, ligaments and muscles.
The aim of the practice is to learn how to execute the movement with control and balance. Understanding how to coordinate movement and breathing naturally, it generates a pleasant feeling of well-being and relaxation.
The main benefits of the practice is the complete inversion.
3000 years ago the Yogis started to talk about the head-down benefits, especially to stabilize a psychophysical well-being, to set the harmony of the body, to improve the blood circulation and to stimulate brain functions, as the improvement of the pineal and pituitary gland functionality.
The aerial practice reduces the negative effects that gravity has on the body. Medical specialists and athletes confirm the great effectiveness of the anti-gravitational inversion therapy. Few minutes of inversion lets you feel lightness and relax. By exploring a new perception of oneself, of the environment and of the own body weight, generates an important sense’s stimulation.
The inversion helps to relieve muscle’s tension and accelerates the flow of lymphatic fluids, reducing inflammation of joints and improving metabolism.
An inverted position, decrease muscle pain by -35% within 10 seconds.
The inversion also improves digestion and evacuation. Variations such as inverse torsions are long known in yoga because they help improve intestinal motility. Solving the problem of constipation helps the general state of health, which is one of the causes of tiredness, tension and anxiety, limitation of the power of the immune system.
I started my Bodyflying studies in the 2017 and since then I opened
my first Bodyflying classes.
I’m grateful for the different influences I met on my way, exploring the possibilities of a bodyflying, aerialyoga and antigravity methods.
By combining my knowledge and experiences, I drove deeper into the many disciplines to create this special method.
The aerial yoga practice is a fun and mindful training that helps to connect your own body in a complete approach.
With the use of the hammock, the practice combines strength and flexibility, challenging ourselves in a matter of coordination and orientation into the space around us.
The weight of the body and the force of gravity are used to improve posture, body alignment, flexibility, strenght, relaxation and back relief.
