F.L.Y ~ First Love Yourself <3
Utilizing the aerial yoga hammock as a prop, we will access classic yin yoga postures with a fun aerial twist.
Under the traditional Chinese understanding of yin (more passive) and yang (more active) energy, most yoga classes are ‘yang’. Postures focus on moving the body, contracting and strengthening the muscles. This challenges the muscles and connective tissue in our joints, and this mild stress means they respond by becoming stronger.
