The Crown Chakra:
This Chakra sits at the top of our heads, and connects us upward to the whole of the Universe.
It is where our energy ascends up and out of the body and unites us to what is larger than ourselves. Welcome to Aerial Yoga!
We love the visual of connecting our heavenly white aerial slings to the Crown Chakra! Of course!
Tula’s physical space is uniquely suited to offer this powerful practice of yoga off the ground with its large main studio space, beamed ceilings with which to rig the slings and sturdiness of structure.
Come and elevate your practice.
Unnata Aerial Yoga® is an opportunity to elevate your practice… literally! (Unnata is Sanskrit for elevated) Yoga poses (asana) performed in a fabric hammock are balanced with poses on the mat to create a practice that will deepen awareness on many levels, and bring a new dimension to your asana practice.
Advantages of using this yoga prop include the ability reap the rich benefits of inversion without needing to rely on the level of strength and balance that can take years to build in a mat practice. These inversions with body weight fully supported in the sling also provide maximum decompression of the spine as gravity works it’s magic naturally. Whether upright or inverted in the fabric, this gift of gravity is maximized by being partially or fully held in the fabric, creating natural alignment; bringing equanimity and balance to the body. The unwinding of facia, release of tension centers in the body, and resistance in the fabric created by being held against gravity in space, provide unparalleled opportunity to both strengthen and release the physical body, while deeply inspiring the chakras of the subtle energy body. It is a truly unique and rich experience of yoga.
