AntiGravity® Fitness

AntiGravity® Fitness

AntiGravity® Yoga combines traditional yoga poses and principles with elements from aerial arts, dance, gymnastics, Pilates, and calisthenics. Christopher Harrison’s AntiGravity was established in 1991 and with this technique one can obtain all of the benefits of yoga without the impact or strain required to achieve the same movements and positions on the ground. Using the principles of gravity to achieve physical and mental decompression, it allows practitioners to get in shape and realign their body in a playful environment. The philosophy of AntiGravity® takes into consideration the two meanings of the word anti-gravity. The first is to “defy the laws of physics” and, secondly, to take a stance “against graveness,” assuring that classes are fun! Christopher Harrison’s personal guarantee is that if you can “suspend your disbelief” his techniques will make you healthier, happier, and taller in your first session.

AntiGravity® Restorative Yoga

AntiGravity® Restorative Yoga is the gentle, meditative, slow stretching and rehabilitative version of AG Aerial Yoga. This approach is perfect for those with a lower fitness level or who just like an approach that gives you time to tune in at a deep level. This unique method focuses the mind through powerful visualizations as you float 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 with the Harrison AntiGravity Hammock height is lowered much closer to the mat for greater accessibility and relaxation. AG Restorative Yoga is an excellent class for first timers.

~ For your comfort and to maintain cleanliness of hammocks we recommend a T-shirt with sleeves.
