Imagine floating weightless in a hammock, feeling complete freedom in your movement, while building incredible total body strength, core stability, improving your flexibility and balance – not to mention feeling CHILLED AF at the end of the class! That’s Defy Gravity’s exclusive style of Aerial Yoga fitness!
Aerial Yoga is suitable for ALL ages, fitness & flexibility levels, and is the perfect compliment to our other gravity defying classes.
Unlike the group fitness classes found in most gyms where anyone can jump in and follow along (think Les Mills & Zumba classes), Defy Gravity small group training classes are structured, instructional and progressive. You will learn how to perform the different moves safely and effectively, PLUS with the guidance of your Instructor we’ll target the 5 core elements of overall health:
- Aerobic Training
- Strength Training
- Core Strength & Conditioning
- Balance/Stability Training
- Flexibility and Stretching
For the safety and comfort of our students there is a strict weight limit of 100kg for these classes!

What to wear in an Aerial class –
Please wear long or 3/4 length leggings with a snugg’ish fitting t-shirt. Nothing too big that you can get tangled up in. As we will be doing inversions, please wear a suitable sports bra or crop top, so as to avoid wardrobe malfunctions 😉 This is a barefoot class, so please wear socks or grip socks.
** We do not recommend shorts or bike pants for Aerial as you can get “silk burn” .
To protect the hammocks Jewellery and Watches are forbidden in the hammocks. If you wish to wear a smart watch or fit-bit, please ensure it securely covered by a soft wrist/sweat band.
