Aerial yoga is a fun and novel workout, but it has the potential for injury
Fly bills its classes as space where newbies and seasoned yogis can increase strength and flexibility while unleashing their "inner acrobat."

AntiGravity yoga review: A white-knuckle ride in a hammock
What We Did: The 75-minute class took students through standing and seated poses, inversions, balancing postures and meditations — all using an aerial hammock suspended from the two hooks attached to the ceiling. The aerial technique was originally developed for gymnasts and acrobats, but has since been modified to suit a wider group of participants.
There are a lot of fun variations – chill versus child’s pose, taut dog versus downward – and other poses that are completely new, including vampire, teepee and spiderman, an inversion. You can hide away from the world for a few minutes inside some of AntiGravity’s more cosy, fort-like poses, including lotus. It’s also a workout: you have not done crunches until you’ve done them hanging upside down.

This was not the case. Yes there were some lovely deep stretches, but generally it was more like trapeze than yoga with somersaults, shoulder stands and moves where you folded yourself up in hammock fabric and hung upside down like some kind of human cat’s cradle.
