Aerial Yoga At Om My Yoga

I’ll let y’all in on a secret. I’ve thought aerial yoga looked like SO much fun, but was always afraid to try it.

When my sweet friend Melissa asked if I wanted to join her for a class of aerial yoga I whipped out my credit card to sign up faster than Meb Keflezighi can run a marathon (read: very fast. USA! USA!)

We went to Om My Yoga, a really cute studio in Camp Hill.

Don’t know what aerial yoga is? From their website:

Combines traditional yoga with the physical training of an aerial acrobat. Designed for those with no aerial experience, this practice uses a low-hanging soft fabric trapeze to support body weight for deep stretching, effortless inversions, deep core strengthening, and FUN!

I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun in a workout class. Although I love yoga, I’d never say I have fun doing it (except for that one time I fell asleep during savasana… another story for another time). This class was the exception.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get any pictures, although I would have loved for someone to snap a picture of me upside down!

I either did this pose, or one a lot like it!

My day had not been the greatest, and usually I can’t turn my brain off enough during a yoga class to relax. That definitely wasn’t the case during this class, as I was having the best time in my canopy, doing the moves.

I should note though that if you get motion sickness, you may wanna take a Dramamine before class. 😉 If I put my foot down, as the instructor noted, I was okay. She did say one person did throw up once in class!

At a $22 price tag, though it’s only $10 for your first class, the price is a little steep, but I would totally do it again!

Have you ever tried Aerial Yoga? What’s the most fun fitness class you’ve ever done?
