Aerial Yoga  Health Considerations

Whenever we exercise the body, the process is one of building up, breaking down, and repairing. The objective is to break down tensions and scars in muscle tissue fibre, while creating more flexibility and elasticity in the joints and muscles. It is also to refresh the systems of the healing body without causing any additional harm. Often, one comes to yoga class in order to bring about healing that can be encouraged by this technique. However, sometimes their body is already in repair mode as they go through a healing crisis and requires monitoring by a health professional.  

Listed below are some of the more obvious contraindications that one should be mindful of:



     Recent Surgery (esp. shoulder, eyes, back, hips, hand, wrist

     Irregular Heart function Very high or very low blood pressure

     Easy onset Vertigo

     Osteoporosis/bone weakness

     Recent head injury


     Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

     Severe arthritis


     Hiatal hernia

     Disc herniation

     Recent stroke

     Cerebral Sclerosis

     Botox (within 6 hours)

While participating in Aerial Yoga techniques, you will be required to sign a waiver.  Should you choose to participate despite contraindications, please carefully monitor your own resistance. Listen to your body and know you are welcome to stop and be still at any point.  Your safety is our very first concern.
