Decompression is the key
Sedentary activities - such as sitting all day in an office or car, exercising without stretching, and rotating the spine to only 20% of its full potential - or even years of poor posture, carrying heavy objects and wearing non-supportive footwear can all interfere with a healthy spine. If your have experienced any of these, it is likely you may suffer from neck pain or back pain.
You may be surprised to know some of these facts:
- The Aerial hammocks act like your own personal yoga teacher whilst you are learning the asanas.
- Because of that, it makes Aerial yoga easier and safer to learn than traditional yoga.
- This is because the Aerial yoga hammock supports you at all times whilst you are learning and building confidence.
