Suitable for beginners!

Aerial Yoga is traditional yoga but in a silk hammock! It builds strength, flexibility and balance and is a deeply nourishing practice. It decompresses the spine and shoulders and calms the mind.

Because of the use of the hammock Aerial Yoga is incredibly effective at strengthening the core and all the muscle groups. The hammock helps you to achieve advanced yoga postures that can take years to learn as well as (optional) experiencing the benefits of being upside down which is great for the spine as well as for building confidence.

Our Thursday and Friday Aerial Yoga classes are the most beginner-friendly, our Tuesday is the most active and advanced Aerial yoga class.

You'll get a lovely stretch, work on balance and strength, and experience a deep sense of calm thanks to the rocking movement of the hammock during our guided Savasana meditation to end the class.

Is Aerial Yoga suitable for beginners?

Yes, aerial yoga is the perfect class for beginners because every movement is clearly described and demonstrated, you have the hammock for support and you don't need to be able to sit on the floor.

Is Aerial Yoga suitable for advanced yoga students?

Yes, I love Aerial Yoga because their are options for advanced versions of postures and inversions. It's also a lovely complement to other forms of yoga because it enables us to work on pulling strength, which we don't get in other forms of yoga and on our core.

What are the benefits of Aerial Yoga?

Aerial yoga has a decompressive effect on the spine and shoulders and provides a feeling of lightness and ease.

The hammock is also great for strength, because you lose your point of stability and you begin to engage your muscles, especially those in your lower abdomen, immediately without even realising it.

The respiratory and digestive systems are improved through increased blood circulation.

Yoga in general and aerial yoga, in particular, is beneficial for emotional and psychological due to the support of the hammock and the gentle rocking motion.

Do I have to go upside down in Aerial Yoga class?

Absolutely not, options are given for every movement.

What should I wear for Aerial Yoga?

Leggings or jogging bottoms and a t-shirt or long sleeved top. We practice bare foot, but you may want to bring socks for the relaxation in cooler weather.

Is Aerial Yoga included in my membership?

Aerial Yoga is included in the Full Gold Membership but booking is essential.

Is Aerial Yoga relaxing?

Aerial Yoga is relaxing but it also gives us the option to work the body more. The relaxing element comes from the slower paced rhythm, the rocking motion of the hammock and the support of the hammock BUT the work comes from the option to work more deeply on strength and balance. We also have the option to integrate core and pulling work which is challenging, but only as challenging as you choose.

Can anyone practice Aerial Yoga?

Almost everyone can practice Aerial Yoga. As with all yoga classes we do recommend you consult your Doctor before joining the class if you have a medical condition.

We especially recommend speaking to your Dr if you have a heart condition, inner ear condition, spinal conditions and eye conditions such as glaucoma.

Is Aerial Yoga safe?

Aerial Yoga at Mandala is very safe. We employed a structural engineer and rigging professional to design our rigging support and to calculate the appropriate spacing. We use the highest quality equipment from the silks to the supports.

Emma is trained as a level 1 & 2 Aerial Yoga teacher as well as a 300 hour Ashtanga Yoga teacher trained by world-renowned John Scott and she continues to study.

Is there a weight limit to Aerial Yoga?

The weight limit is 22 stone per person. We use the highest quality silks and climbing rigging and we had we our set-up designed and installed by a team of structural engineers.

What is Aerial Yoga Membership?

about the Teacher

Emma Lowther-Wright: Studio Director

Hi, I'm Emma and I am very fortunate to have been trained to teach Ashtanga Yoga by world-renowned John Scott. John is one of the key teachers who brought Ashtanga yoga from India to Europe. Often referred to as 'Preston's yoga teacher' I am honoured to teach yoga to 150-200 people every week!

I am dedicated to and immersed in the Ashtanga practice and continue to travel to study with senior 500hr international teachers including Eddie Stern, Scott Johnson, Lucy Crawford-Scott and Greg Nardi.

I teach with an emphasis on clear communication, empowerment, joy and compassion. I am especially interested in the neuroscience of yoga, how yoga can release physically held mental and emotional tension and how yoga can help us to live with greater joy, confidence and ease.

As well as studio classes I work within the community teaching in workplaces and education settings and to members of our community with physical and mental health challenges including those with deafness, who use a wheelchair and have cognitive challenges.

My classes are heart-lifting, empowering, flowing dances to the rhythm of the breath. I share movement and meditation practices with kindness, encouragement and joy - I hope to welcome you to a class soon.
