What are the benefits of Aerial classes?
Hanging freely provides you many physical benefits and allows you to perform deeper stretches whilst strengthening your core. You will walk away from an Aerial class 1/2 – 1 1/2 inches taller due to your spine completely decompressing throughout inversions.
Hanging upside down is not only just fun, but it refreshes your lymphatic, digestive and circulatory systems, allowing your body to release serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin and dopamine – also known as the happy hormones.
The other major physical benefits that Aerial classes provide include;
Realigning the spine,
Alleviating pressure from your joints,
Hydrating the discs in your vertebra that become tired & dehydrated with age.
