Local aerial yoga expands offerings
Aerial Yoga classes are expanding to meet student demand with new levels being offered and a workshop at a new location coming in mid-January.
Jordan Anderson, a local yoga instructor, began teaching Unnata Aerial Yoga in September at Prime Time Fitness on Sullivan's Island. The classes are taught in a series of four sessions, with drop-in space available only when a series is not full.
Aerial yoga is an innovative style of yoga that uses low-hanging aerial silks to elevate and turn traditional yoga postures upside down. The practice emphasizes spinal elongation, shoulder opening and strengthening, and core strengthening. It is appropriate for beginner to advanced-level yoga students.
This month, Anderson will offer two beginner-level workshops, including one in North Charleston starting Jan. 23, in addition to the ongoing classes, as well as one intermediate-level workshop and one intermediate-level class series, for those students who are ready to go deeper.
"Response from students to the aerial yoga classes has been very exciting," says Anderson. "Students of all ages and abilities come to class and leave feeling more spacious, relaxed, and free in their bodies."
