Aerial Swing Yoga Fitness: A Complete Mind and Body Workout
If you think yoga is hard, try doing yoga while lifting weights as you swing through the air.
That’s what me and my friend Que of Takbo.ph went through in this quaint backyard gym owned by Francesca Letswing.
Francesca as she teaches us how to stretch with the swing.
Francesca uses Gravotonics swings for her two aerial swing classes — Aerial Swing Yoga (no weights) and Aerial Swing Yoga Fitness (with weights). She taught us both!
Francesca shows us a few moves before the class. We have to work to get those biceps!
The fun thing about aerial swing yoga is that your body is supported by the swing, so yoga poses aren’t too difficult to do, especially the inversions. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Aerial swing yoga is really good for the abs because you need to keep them tight to maintain balance as you move. Add dumbbells to the equation and you get a full body workout!
As we all know, yoga is about practicing stillness and calming the mind and this type of yoga is no different.
Those abs tho…
You need focus as you conquer the voice in your head that tells you, “You can’t do it!”
I’ve been doing yoga (albeit inconsistently) for the past 2 years or so, following videos on Youtube, and I must admit that attending a class with a trainer telling you to do just 1 more when you feel like giving up makes a big difference.
So, when around Makati, try out Francesca’s Aerial Swing Yoga class! Train your mind and body to focus, let go and enjoy the swing! It’s a fun, new workout to try!
