The Ultimate Cliffhanger
Private Class - 60 minutes
Originating in New York, aerial yoga, also known as ‘anti-gravity yoga’, is a relatively new form of yoga thatinvolves performing a series of exercises inspired by yoga, Pilates, calisthenics and aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric hammock suspended aabout a meter above the ground.
In this elevated position, with the hammock partially or fully supporting the weight of the body, practitioners find they are able to dig deeper into the asanas and hold them for longer. They are also able to explore a greater range of movement and achieve positions they may find difficult to do on the ground, such as inverted positions, adding greater variety to their yoga routine.
Among the many benefits of aerial yoga is decompression of the spine as the body hangs freely, relieving tension and promoting proper posture and alignment through relaxation rather than effort. The result is a more balanced and relaxed expression of each pose. During the aerial workout, almost every part of the body is forced to move and stretch, toning strengthening and rehabilitating all the muscles and joints in the process.
Guests will be guided through the aerial movements by resident yogi Nyoman Warta, renowned for his gentle and grounding connection, thoroughness and knowledge of yoga. Sharing the spiritual essence that is rooted in his authentic Balinese upbringing, Nyoman has devoted his life to developing clarity through intuitive healing movements, breathing and sense of touch. For over 15 years, he has shared his love of yoga, creating positive experiences for his students, and offering healing at multiple levels. His philosophy is to customise yoga classes to meet the needs of individual students and to teach at a deeper level when required.
Under Nyoman’s guidance, guests can now discover the extraordinary benefits of aerial yoga at the resort’s Sunset Cabana, soaring high over the Indian Ocean. The ultimate setting for an amazingly uplifting experience.
