GRAFTS Hellas presents to the Greek Fitness market its new educational program in Yoga Training: Aerial Yoga Arts! Under the philosophy of Yoga and its poses - asanas, the playfulness and joy of Aerial Arts combine with the dynamism of Fitness.
Aerial Yoga is an integrated training, recreation and relaxation system. It is based on the classic yoga poses and breaths, which are now performed in the air with the help of a hammock, coupled with acrobatic moves. Swinging offers a unique feeling of overcoming gravity, self-confidence, serenity and euphoria, while muscles stretch and grow stronger. It addresses all exercisers, regardless of age and physical condition.
The educational program offers a whole new perspective to students, as the popularity of Aerial Yoga is constantly growing, with Yoga studios and exercise rooms adding it to their programs. After graduating from it, students will have all the right qualifications to design and teach Aerial Yoga lessons with safety, aiming at helping exercisers get a better understanding of their body through proper alignment, improve their strength and endurance, and have fun at the same time.
