Aerial Yoga in South London

Our yoga centre, in the heart of South London, fosters community and positive change – come and join us to explore the transformative, liberating power of Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga Classes at The Shala

The Shala is one of very few London yoga centres offering Aerial Yoga, also known as Anti-Gravity Yoga,. In this exciting new realm of yoga traditional yoga postures are explored in 360 degrees with the use of an aerial swing. Suitable for all levels, including beginners, these classes and workshops promise a both exhilarating and profoundly relaxing experience. With the guidance of our aerial yoga teachers, you’ll discover endless possibilities within the aerial swings – from dynamic sequences, to a being rocked and cocooned gently in the swing.

Much like its mat-based counterpart, Aerial Yoga can offer both gentle relaxation and playful exploration. This versatile practice brings the gifts of traditional yoga while adding a sense of curiosity and freedom that often eludes us in our daily adult lives.

The hammock becomes a supportive partner, deepening your yoga practice to a closer physical experience. This offers ease, pleasure, and lightness while indulging in creative movements and expanding your sensations. Furthermore, the hammock’s gentle pull of gravity allows for exquisite backbends, inversions, and postures that may have felt inaccessible before, making it ideal for easing back pain and decompressing the spine.
