YOU'RE SET, LETS FLY!
THE BENEFIT GOODS
Greater Flexibility. You have more freedom of movement, you can move your body 360 degrees in space and into new positions. This will result in a deeper and more fulfilling stretch than traditional yoga offers.
Better Focus. By putting yourself in a more challenging situation than usual, Flight™ Yoga forces you to be more alert, attentive and aware of your surroundings. This increases and strengthens your mind + body connection.
Strengthened Muscles. Gravity is working harder on your body than usual, your muscles work harder too. Flight™ yoga is also a great core workout because you have to engage your core muscles to balance and stabilize yourself (we often practice on one foot distributing weight between the floor and the sling which also creates instability and makes your core and muscles work harder).
Stress-Relief. Much like traditional yoga, Flight™ yoga is great for stress relief. It helps rebuild your emotional system because it clears the mind and relieves stress due to its meditative state. It also helps you combat stress throughout the day and increases your creativity. And don't forget the confidence that comes with trying something new and a little daring!
Myofacial Release. The fabric puts pressure on your muscles that provide a myofacial release of tension and soreness much like foam rolling.
Detox. Your first class (and usually only the first one) can feel a bit nauseating mainly because inversions, myofacial releasing and deep openings in the body kick up a great detox process that can feel a bit uncomfortable. Drink lots of water and flush it out, you'll feel much better afterwards though!
Get Happy. Inversions release 'happy hormones' dopamine, endorphins, serotonin + oxytocin. Giving you a blissful uplift!
Relax the Back. If you suffer from back spasms, scoliosis, or a herniated disc, hanging upside down may ease painful symptoms. (check with your doctor)
Anti-aging. You'll see changes in your skin, such as an improvement in varicose veins + cellulite, a subtle reduction in fine lines, and more color in your face giving you the inversion #glow
Improves memory. Flight™ yoga fortifies your neural connections, thereby, rendering better memory power. In a way, practicing flight™ yoga can make you smarter!
