Aerial Yoga uses a fabric hammock or sling with traditional yoga poses. The fabric can be used while standing on the floor to help students with deeper stretches and balances. You can also stand in the fabric sling, lie in it or have fun with inversions. Spreading the fabric like a hammock you will enjoy a wonderfully soothing relaxation at the end of class, integrating all the benefits of yoga.
Yoga means union of mind, body and spirit. Aerial Yoga helps achieve strength and flexibility of the body, calmness of the mind and spirit in a fun and playful way.
Wear comfortable loose clothing, no jewelry that could snag or tear the fabric.
Ruth teaches aerial yoga classes at New England Movement Arts. The classes are currently on break and will return in the Fall 2020. If you are interested to try an aerial yoga workshop or sign up for an aerial yoga class, please contact Ruth directly at
