Beginners Aerial Yoga

occurs on: Tuesdays & Thursdays 6pm
time: 6-7pm
Learn the beautiful practice of Aerial Yoga with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm.

Aerial yoga builds strength, flexibility and Grace. It’s traditional yoga but using a silk hammock which enables deeper stretches, builds greater core strength and makes advanced yoga postures more accessible (such as going upside down).

It’s great for releasing tension in the shoulders, spine and mind!

You will flow through sequences that build flexibility, strength, balance and focus and then enjoy a relaxation laying in the hammock for ultimate peace of mind. If you have any questions email Emma at emmabebliss@outlook.com

Taught by Mandala Studio Director, Emma Lowther-Wright.

Is Aerial Yoga suitable for beginners?

Yes, aerial yoga is suitable 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 practitioners?

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.

Where can I park?

Parking is free on the roads outside the studio from 5:30pm

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 upside down in Aerial Yoga?

Absolutely not, options are given for every movement. So you can upside if you want and Emma will support you, or you can take the other options offered for that movement.

What should I wear for Aerial Yoga?

T-shirts or long sleeved tops must be worn (vest tops are not suitable). Leggings or jogging bottoms. Socks are a good idea for the meditation at the start and end of class in cooler weather.

Is Aerial Yoga relaxing?

Aerial Yoga is relaxing for the mind but it also works the body.

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.

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.

What is Aerial Yoga membership?

You are welcome to just book single Aerial classes if that works better for you, but many choose Aerial Yoga Membership which saves you £8 per month / £96 per year
It's paid monthly costing £40 per month which guarantees you a space every week on your chosen day.
If you can't make a class you can choose to attend Aerial a different day (space permitting) or Ashtanga, Hatha or Vinyasa yoga.

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.
