Gwyneth Paltrow enjoys getting high for her workouts.
High, as in practicing AntiGravity yoga high above the ground. The famously fit actress took to her blog to rave about this new yoga practice that is starting to create a buzz here in the states. Also known as “Aerial Yoga”, this technique fuses together yoga, acrobatics, dance, gymnastics, pilates and other disciplines.
Gwyneth describes her anti-gravity yoga experience in detail saying;
We spent an afternoon in Richard Holroyd’s intimate studio that houses four AntiGravity Hammocks – basically a hammock made of silk that you can lie, hang, stretch in and more. At first, we just got used to being in the swing – part of what makes it so special is the sense of suspension. Then Richard showed us several moves with the hammock. In comparison to other yoga classes, the moves felt constructive without feeling like a chore.
AntiGravity Yoga is great for those who have trouble exercising due to injuries. The suspension above the ground alleviates any straining on specific body parts especially the back.
