A Karma we LOVE Aerial Yoga ! We encourage our students to take a class so that they can further their appreciation of the balance, awareness and serenity that can be enhanced through expanding their Yoga practice. In aerial yoga the silks are a prop, not unlike a strap or block, and assist alignment allowing you to feel an immediate sense of spinal decompression. The silks assist students through various positions and classes are designed to help you gain a better understanding of your body and Yoga postures.
