Aerial Yoga Class uses the hammock to perform yoga postures. The hammock is soft and stretchable. It is made out of special high-density nylon material that can support over 2,000 pounds.
In this class we follow professional safety instructions on how to use the hammock. You will learn how to manoeuvre poses in the hammock safely with precise instructions on getting into, standing on, holding the fabric, going upside down, using the core and finding your balance. Do expect stretches and lots of muscle strengthening.
Aerial yoga offers benefits similar to a regular yoga practice, but done with the support of the hammock and includes anti-gravity poses for less compression of the spine, all with the element of fun.
Aerial Yoga Class Tips
- Please wear tight fitting but comfortable short sleeved shirt and leggings. Loose or baggy clothing can impede movements and may get tangled in the hammock. Short sleeve shirt protects your armpit from the pressure against the hammock.
- Drink plenty of water, and eat a light meal at least 2-3 hours before. This will prepare you for the intensity of the workout ahead.
- Avoid soft drinks and other acidic liquid before class. These might cause unpleasant feelings in your gut when you perform upside-down movements.
- Do not use hand lotion. It might stick to the hammock or make it harder for to maintain your grip.
- Remove jewelry, wrist watch, hairpin, earring, rings accessories and anything else that can tear or get tangled in the hammock. This also includes untrimmed fingernails and toenails.
- Socks with rubber grip required (Yoga socks).

Yoga Mala is a yoga studio located in the heart of Singapore. With an emphasis on breathing techniques and meditation,Yoga Mala practices thoughtful and reflexive yoga to promote both physical and mental well-being. A mala is a string of beads or garland that strings together individual beads through a common thread, towards a common purpose. Yet each of these beads still retains its individuality in terms of shape and quality, where disparate individuals are brought together with the different disciplines of yoga and the varying needs of the human psyche – body, mind and emotions – are addressed. A mala is a tool that is used to create a single point of focus in the mind, creating greater awareness and a consciousness for the self. Yoga begins with the body and does not end until it reaches the depths of our consciousness.
