Aerial yoga is a type of yoga which uses a hammock or yoga swing to allow students to perform postures that they may not ordinarily be able to attempt on the yoga mat. It combines traditional yoga with moves inspired by pilates, dance and acrobatics. Aerial yoga is thought to be particularly beneficial for students who spend a long time sitting, or who have back pain, because it has a decompressing effect on the body.

Yin yoga is a slower paced style of yoga where poses are held from 3 to 5 minutes. The long held poses target a deep release in the connective tissues and fascia (rather than the muscles that are targeted in a more active practice). While Yin is a more passive practice, it can be challenging due to the length of time a posture is held. The long held postures encourage a focus on mindfulness meditation by using the body to stay present. Yin is suitable for all levels and is adaptable to all body types through use of props. It is a perfect complement to more active styles of exercise as it encourages the slow and safe opening of connective tissues, leaving the yogi with an overall feeling of lightness, spaciousness and peace.
