Yoga Generation one of the only studios in the lower mainland offering Aerial classes. Aerial yoga is a new type of yoga that uses a silk hammock as a tool to help students achieve and deepen traditional yoga positions. The weight of the body is either partially or fully supported by the hammock as you move through a variety of yoga postures including inversions, hip openers, hamstring stretches, and restorative postures. The hammock provides a unique and fun take on traditional yoga, while also allowing students with limited mobility the ability to deepen or hold postures that would have previously been inaccessible.
