Over the years I am pretty honored to work with the best people, from the IT industry to my overall quest for a healthier lifestyle. Let me take the opportunity to introduce you to my teacher in Yoga of 4 years- Isla Rosete. Deep into those years of Yoga training, she introduced me to something awesome… something to push me out of my comfort zone, something to sweep me of my feet… it was Flyoga. She had me at hello!
Isla had the opportunity to be trained by Flyoga founder, Reiko Soo. Through Isla’s acquired knowledge and training, I was also able to appreciate the beauty of this practice… it was so fun and satisfying! Where can you find the ultimate cross between Yoga and Dance that you can do with the people you love? I am getting a natural high on my own supply!
Elevating Awareness: The Art of Flyoga
Generally known as aerial yoga, it was inspired by aerial silks or tissu, which is considered an acrobatic artform. Flyoga is an out-of-the-box approach to yoga that is designed to be fun and a good break from your standard yoga fare.
Flyoga according to Isla Rosete, our resident Flyoga instructor is a low-impact activity that aims for total body conditioning that utilizes yards of silk / hammocks suspended in mid-air. Have you seen Pink performing in the air? It’s like that! Regardless if you’re an experienced athlete or a newbie, you are given the chance to enjoy and explore the physical and spiritual benefits of Flyoga- while having fun.
Flyoga enables you to explore and enhance coordination and concentration. It makes the easy poses more challenging and the ones you’d do on the mat easier. It’s an activity that emphasizes gravity, core balance, and body weight training… awesome right? The hammocks make for a wider motion range and room for deeper stretches than performing yoga on the floor!
Having experienced it, I can safely say that it’s something that I love doing- it gives me that sense of freedom, moving freely with less effort as I am defying gravity. You’d be surprised at the results that “floating and playing around” can give you. As the days went by with me getting my share of aerial adventures, my flexibility and overall body strength have already improved, making me ready for more traditional yoga practice.
