Restorative or Yin Aerial Yoga

This class is very gentle and relaxing. Sometimes the instructor will opt to put the silks low to the floor and use them as a props for you to relax and support the body with long holds and deep breath work. Other times the silks will be a little higher, allowing for more inversions and different postures. But all of the postures in this class are gentle and easy for anyone.
