Antigravity Yoga: Soaring Into Shape
NEW YORK (Ivanhoe Newswire) --We all know working out can help boost your mood, but what about one that can make your spirits soar? We’ll introduce you to antigravity yoga that has students literally flying high.
The singer, Pink’s acrobatic performance in an antigravity hammock at the Grammys has everyone from celebrities to the masses trying the new craze.
“The Pink thing was really cool because it was the first time that everybody else really got to see it on a really large level,” Christopher Harrison, Antigravity yoga creator, told Ivanhoe.
Antigravity yoga combines vinyasa yoga, aerial dance, Pilates and calisthenics. By distributing your weight equally on the hammock, you work to give your back a much needed break. On an average day our spines shrink between a quarter and three quarters of an inch. Antigravity yoga helps your spine decompress, helping you relieve pain while feeling your spirits soar.
“The inversion, going upside down, is a known way to stimulate the pituitary gland in your body which is responsible for mood enhancement.” Christine Raffa, from Raffa power yoga, told Ivanhoe.
Not only can you build strength, agility and flexibility….
"Today’s lesson was a breakthrough, my hip feels better than it’s ever felt in months,” Jeanette Garcia, an Antigravity yoga student, told Ivanhoe.
Students say flying is the ultimate high.
“You really need to trust the hammock so there is this wonderful feeling of letting go,” Katie Adelston, an Antigravity yoga student, told Ivanhoe.
“It’s totally divine, it’s incredible,” Sharon Campellone, an Antigravity yoga student told Ivanhoe.
“I’ve done every sport just about, and wrestling is the most demanding and this blew my mind.” Jack Tobin, an Antigravity yoga student, concluded.
Using gravity to change your mind and body.
