WHAT IS AERIAL PILATES?

Aerial Pilates combines the fundamentals of the Pilates Method with aerial arts.

Aerial Pilates involves practising Pilates exercises in the air by suspending the body, or parts of the body in an aerial hammock. The hammock is suspended close to the ground at the height of the hips to the knees.   Beginners practising aerial Pilates start by practising exercises on the floor with the assistance of the Pilates hammock, then gradually advance to exercises that require full body suspension.
