All exercise entails some level of risk, and aerial yoga is no different. That said, we take the safety of our clients and instructors very seriously.
Our yoga hammocks are rigged to hold 1,000 lbs., and we will be improving this safety ratio even further this summer to gain more studio height and better facilitate our upper level conditioning and circus classes.
The most common cause of discomfort when beginning an aerial practice is due to the wraps themselves, and you may experience some minor irritation, discomfort, and even bruising as you condition your body to the sensation and pressure of the wraps. Some people may also experience dizziness as a result of inverting, and we take great care in our classes to ensure adequate time is allowed for clients to breathe and reconnect with the earth after inversions.
It is essential that you inform your instructor of any existing medical issues, injuries, or other concerns before beginning class. It’s also essential that you review the “Can I take aerial yoga?” section above, to ensure you do not have a condition that may prevent your practice.
