For many people aerial yoga is an exotic exercise
For many people aerial yoga is an exotic exercise to which they must look to learn. I do not have to explain the enjoyment that people get from doing yoga in a stationary environment. Yoga is just about yoga. If you have an interest in yoga, you will want to learn some new aerial yoga moves so that you can enhance your physical performance and your mood as well.
If you are someone who likes to try out new types of yoga moves, the first difficult move you should consider trying out is the one called the butterfly. It requires the use of both arms. When learning how to do the butterfly you will need a partner. You need a strong support person to hold your body in a position that you can do the butterfly in. In this move you will have to flip around and rotate through 90 degrees.
To learn how to do the Butterfly in the air you will need to learn the counter gravity. This is done by taking a deep breath, breathing in through the nose and holding your breath. Once you exhale, quickly turn your head around to the left. Continue on with this backwards turn and continue to twist and turn in the same way.
You will now need to learn the counter gravity back foot move. At this point you can use the same backwards motion of the initial flip to continue to turn. Just be sure to turn right before turning left.
Continue to spin and turn left and right. You will want to twist at a very rapid pace. By now you should be using the counter gravity to turn the second time around to get the total rotation back to the right side.
As you are doing the aerial yoga, you will find that your body is feeling very light. This is due to the fact that your body is supporting itself but your muscles are also not giving your body any resistance. When you practice this move, it is important that you do not get off balance. You will want to learn how to do a side to side back and forth flip.
It is important that you do a side to side flipping at the end of your aerial yoga. This is because the air that you are using to perform the flip has to go around your feet and not the other way around. So when you perform the aerial yoga you should be holding your hips a little bit more.
If you learn how to do the aerial yoga this exercise is perfect for working your core muscle groups. There are many different versions of the sideways twist. The one that you are going to be doing is going to be a variation of the side to side vertical flip.
Learning how to do the sideways twist will require you to know the side to side vertical flip that is done with the toes pointed inward. Once you have learned how to do the sideways spin, you will be able to do the side to side vertical flipping. You will have to do the parallel flip.
You will need to work on the parallel flip at first. It will help you get the balance needed for the side to side horizontal flip. The horizontal flip will work on the inner aspect of your core muscles.
I hope that these few quick tips have given you some new ideas about doing aerial yoga. Try them out in the air for a few weeks and see what you think about them. You will not be disappointed!
