What is Unnata Aerial Yoga?
Unnata® Aerial yoga is a unique program that combines traditional yoga poses with strengthening components and fun of Aerial Arts. It is done on soft fabric trapeze hanging from the ceiling, thus the name “Unnata” which in Sanskrit means “elevated”, both physically and in spirit. In Unnata Aerial Yoga, our body weight is supported in mid-air. With the help of gravity classical yoga poses are explored in a new exciting way that strengthens the whole body, while enhancing body’s proprioception, proper alignment, decompression of the joints and release of deep muscles and fascia. Fly yourself fit and turn the whole world upside down!
