AntiGravity® Restorative Yoga 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 sivasana. Working from different hammock heights allows for the gentle opening of hips and spine.

 

AntiGravity® Fitness is recognized by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America as a Continuing Education Provider.

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

I attended AntiGravity Fitness (Fundamentals 1 & 2) in 2018. As a yoga teacher, it’s crucial for me to teach my students in a safe way. In this training, Tamer taught us how to teach safe through step by step techniques. For students with different levels, we will learn how to spot them with proper progressions and regression for the sequences. I can gain 100% confidence to share and teach AntiGravity Fitness to the general public after taking the course. Let’s fly high!  —  Cherrie Leung
