Benefits for Children:

 

Aerial yoga is an incredibly beneficial mind/body tool for children; unfortunately, there aren't many places offering aerial classes for children.  

 

Our classes incorporate mind/body exercise, sensory integration, and life-skills. We have been taught that we have 5 senses, however, neurologists will explain humans have 9 or more senses. These include the somatic senses and interoceptive senses - of which there are basically three. The two major sensations we utilize are:

 1. Vestibular/Balance - the sense of the body's alignment and movement through space.
 2. Proprioception - the brain's knowledge of the relative positions of its body parts.  
Working in tandum this helps to increases brain organization and regulation.

 

Students also work on breathing techniques, mindfulness, peaceful principles, and creativity. In aerial yoga, we can raise or lower the swing to accomodate each student at there comfort level. Our classes encorage self-confidence; as the swing packs in the fun factor and motivates kids to develop a love for movement, and a mind/body practice early on so they can use these principles throughout their life. Remember, the mind reflects the body and the body the mind.
