You want me to do what??
I thought I had done every exercise out there. Weights, yoga, Pilates, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, medicine balls, dancing and everything in between. I was hardly prepared for what I would experience at my first Anti Gravity Yoga class.
Wait…doesn’t Anti Gravity technically mean “without” gravity? Yes, and obviously here on earth we can’t be 100% without it but this is darn close.
Sure I’ve done lots of yoga in my day but I was safe on my yoga mat…on the ground!
So, here’s what I discovered (and will compare AGY to) and I’m sure I’m not alone when I describe the feelings I got when I played on the swings at recess as a kid. Free flying like a bird, high as a kite with the wind whipping through my rats nest of a hairdo. Maybe a little tummy churn here and there but wasn’t that what is was all about?
I understand there are doubts. The first one may be “what if I fall on my head?” Granted you will spend some time upside down but you will be secure in your hammock. And if you have any questions at all, your instructor Alex will help! OK, there ARE those few people who weren’t meant to do any kind of exercise with grace but who cares, this is FUN and I promise, you won’t land on your head. And for the love of Pete (who ever the hell he is) the hammock holds up to, like, 1000 pounds so it will not drop from the ceiling while you’re pulling a swan dive!
Honestly, it was such a refreshing release from all the other mundane exercises I’ve done I would do it every single day if I had the time. And I’m telling you, I was sore the next day. And the next. And a day after that. It will work muscles you never even knew existed without falling on your head.
Do yourself a favor and try it yourself! Here’s where it’s offered www.superflyfitness.com and here is where you can get a session for Half Price! (go ahead and click!)
And here are some pictures of me dangling in mid air having the time of my life 🙂
