For those who love yoga or even those who simply want to experience something new, aeroyoga is the ideal new class to try. This fascinating form of yoga has its participants hanging from one or two pieces of soft, tensile fabric which is safely secured to the ceiling. This allows the student to perform a variety of poses while suspended, without having their feet ever touch the floor, unless it is strictly necessary.
Benefits of aeroyoga
Much like traditional yoga, aeroyoga has many benefits to the body and the mind. Taking aeroyoga classes regularly helps to improve flexibility and muscle strength, while also putting less pressure on the joints. It also helps to release endorphins, improve posture, decompress the spine, shape the body, strengthen the core, improves circulation and breathing, decreases water retention and cellulite.
So if you’re living in Madrid and you would like to try a class, here are some of the best places you can go for aeroyoga.
