Antigravity Yoga class is a combination of aerial arts and yoga by using hammocks to help practitioners gain greater flexibility. Moreover, people of any size, shape, or age can learn Anti-gravity Yoga.
According to Christopher Harrison, Antigravity Yoga Creator, since the classes were open three years ago in New York City, they have become popular in many nations such as the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, and South Korea. By making use of silk hammocks, "Anti-gravity" yoga helps practitioners gain greater flexibility, allowing for a wider range of yoga postures. Interestingly, Antigravity Yoga is a new form of exercise promising numerous benefits ranging from increased joint mobility to improved muscle and mental strength. In a class in New York City on Tuesday 16 August, students wrapped themselves in a special silk hammock which is used for resistance and for support as the class stretches, hangs upside down and suspends in the air. During the 90-minute workout, the hammocks help keep the students properly aligned. These Antigravity Yoga students all feel the classes are good total body workout as well as good fun. Jill Drappo-Harvey, Antigravity Yoga Student shared: "My upper body, my shoulders, and my biceps feel really nice and worked and I feel really connected to my core, and my hips feel so loose, it's like my legs want to fly off of them. In a good way."
