Yoga continues to be multi-dimensional. Whether it’s Vinyasa, Bikram, Yin, etc. there are plenty of different classes/varieties of yoga to be experienced until you find one, or multiple that are the right fit for you.
Personally I have a hard time enjoying a workout class that isn’t at least somewhat challenging. If a flow is too slow my mind is constantly wandering and I’m unable to focus on my mat. A moderate/fast pace is what I enjoy which is why for almost a year I was a member at Corepower, which remains one of the best workouts of my life.
Back when I lived in Phoenix (now a proud Denver resident) my best friend and I decided to try Aerial Yoga.
As life happens, we were extremely hungover before entering the classroom. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Aerial yoga is a newer form of yoga that was developed over a decade ago by Christopher Harrison, who was a professional dancer. Is it advertised as an opportunity to “increase mobility and naturally realign your muscles and joints.”
By the end of the class I was somehow not feeling sick but somewhat… restored? I was scared to go upside down, you have to wrap your legs into the silks and then have faith and basically just fall back and I screamed which the class definitely enjoyed.
Although it’s not a workout I would do all the time every now and then it is a welcome way to work out muscles that aren’t often used and just have FUN. On a final note, I would NOT do this hungover again, but I am happy to say that I survived and added it to my list to mix into my fitness routine every now and then.
