A fun fusion of yoga postures done in yoga hammocks. The beautiful silks hang hip height in a hammock style so there is easy access to the floor. The fabric acts as a safe prop to assist the body in opening and relaxing while your weight is completely supported by the fabric in a zero-gravity situation. The fabric can be opened wide to lie inside or bunched together to sit, stand or support in stretching. We learn yoga poses, flips, tricks and how to move into all of these postures safely. Kids will learn co-ordination and trust. They will develop strength, stamina & flexibility. There are numerous zero-gravity benefits including decompression, improved circulation, skeletal and nervous system health as well as joint mobility. Plus kids LOVE playing in the silks!
