AntiGravity® Yoga Restorative is the gentle, healing side of Christopher Harrison‚s AntiGravity Yoga. This powerful method focuses the mind through powerful visualizations as it floats the body through a series of gentle gyro-kinetic motions, deeply opening the entire spine, hips, and connective tissues of the body.

This technique features full body inversions, alongside various forms of flowing spinal traction. It offers accessibility to students with physical limitations, but is loved by all as a portal into deeper spinal flexibility, and mind/body connection. Taught in a sequential flow to music, the class incorporates levitating meditations, zero-compression inversions, supported sun salutations, joint opening poses, and a floating savasana. Working from different hammock heights allows for the gentle opening of hips and spine.

Day 1: Discover the excitement of working with different Harrison Hammock heights in the most therapeutic, meditative, and gentle relaxing program . Learn also how to use the mat yoga and the Harrison AntiGravity® Hammock to go deeper into yin yoga like movement.

Day 2: Expand learning into how to work with people with physical limitations, and go deeper into mindful and moving meditations, new methodology geared towards joint mobility, controlled traction, and holistic healing .

*Prerequisite: All students are required to take AntiGravity® Fundamentals 1 & 2 before taking this course.
