Aerial Yoga @ Purple Blossom

Soar to New Heights with Us!

Relax. Revitalize.
Experience Bliss.

Take your yoga practice off the mat with Aerial Yoga. Founded in Anti-Gravity Aerial Yoga Fitness and techniques, our aerial yoga classes are open for anyone interested in expanding their yoga practice. Although a basic yoga practice is helpful, it is not required.

You will be introduced to the fundamentals of this form, as well as how the hammock can help you access familiar yoga poses in new ways. Our workshops are designed to help you relax, restore, flip fly, float, and advance on your own timeline.

Aerial Class Offerings

Level 0* Restorative and Relaxation with the Aerial Hammock
Our Restorative Aerial Workshop focuses the mind through powerful visualizations as it floats the body through a series of gentle gyro-kinetic motions, deeply opening the entire spine, hips, and connective tissues of the body. This technique features various forms of flowing spinal traction. It offers accessibility to students with physical limitations but is loved by all as a portal into deeper spinal flexibility, and mind-body connection. Taught in a sequential flow to music, the class incorporates levitating meditations, supported inversions, joint opening poses, and a floating savasana. Working from a low hammock height allows for the gentle opening of the hips and spine. 

Level: Beginner

Prerequisites: None. No experience is required.

Level 0* Floating Soundbath
Relax on your own cloud, in your own pod, and be lulled to relaxation by the sweet sound of crystal singing bowls for a divine 60 minutes of bliss.

Our Floating Soundbath will offer the opportunity for complete body and mind relaxation while allowing you to experience musical vibrations from every angle. 

Students will be guided and enter their hammock with a variety of positions to choose from. Silence will be held during the class aside from the sweet healing vibrations of the crystal bowls.

This is NOT an aerial movement-based class. Stillness will be honored.

Level: Beginner

Prerequisites: None. No experience is required.

Level 0* Cocoon & Beam Up: Floating Restorative + Soundbath
Supercharging the Power Nap: According to the National Sleep Foundation, research shows that naps can restore alertness, enhance performance, and reduce mistakes and accidents. A study at NASA on sleepy military pilots and astronauts found that a 40-minute nap improved performance by 34% and alertness by 100%.  Naps can increase alertness in the period directly following the nap and may extend alertness a few hours later in the day.

A 15-minute nap can make up for a poor night’s sleep.  Additionally, napping has psychological benefits. A nap can be a pleasant luxury, a mini-vacation. It can provide an easy way to get some relaxation and rejuvenation.

AntiGravity® Cocooning is a 30-45 minute class that takes participants through basic stretching and mobility sequences before placing them into the Cocoon for a guided meditation.

After a guided sequence of relaxing postures, a crystal singing bowl sound bath will be offered for the remainder of the session.

Level: Beginner

Prerequisites: None. No experience is required.
