What Is Aerial Pilates

If you are wondering what is this fitness fad all about, Aerial Pilates is done using an aerial hammock. Using the hammock as a support, you are up in the air, performing stretches, leg raises, etc. Aerial workouts may look intimidating to many, but it has several benefits. A great full-body workout, aerial pilates is a great way to work on your core strength and to shed the extra weight.

Following are four reasons why we all should try our hands at aerial pilates:

1# It is a Full Body Workout

Even though it is hard to believe, but hanging on this hammock does work on your overall body. As we are engrossed in performing aerial activities with much care, there is a lot of stretching, movement and balancing. All this enhances the muscle strength of the overall body.

2# Back and Neck Benefits

This exercise benefits the back and neck to a great extent. Aerial Pilates is all about hanging up there. Hanging up reduces the stress on the hip joints and spinal cord, which makes you feel lighter. Those with neck and back injuries should indulge in such moves for relief.

3# Balance

When you are handing on the hammock, balance is the most important here. Moving against gravity requires precision to avoid injuries due to falling on the ground. It also helps in giving the required stability to the mind and body, which is often essential in performing yoga activities.

4# Enhances Body Strength

Pilates is a great core workout. It requires excellent body strength to stay still on the hammock and hold on to poses including lunge pose, mountain pose and shoulder stand. Anyone can do aerial pilate and requires core strength, which can be built over time.
