11 Yoga on York – Try Aerial Yoga with Friends in Towson
Jayne Bernasconi developed “Aerial Yoga BT” blending ancient yoga with aerial arts. You will gently warm up and then slip into a soft fabric hammock. The hammock allows for deep stretching, strengthening and release. The “art of inversion” - being upside down and decompressing the spine to open the vertebral column, helps with circulation, assists with the elimination of toxins and impurities and offers ways to stretch that would be impossible on the floor. Enjoy the fun with your friends.
