You may have heard of Ashtanga, Hatha and Bikram but what about the latest trend to hit the yoga mat? Aerial yoga is loved by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Mariah Carey, Natalie Portman and Pink and this ‘airborne’ yoga can be experienced on a number of The Healthy Holiday Company retreats around the world.

Aerial Yoga (also known as yogaria, floating Yoga and anti-gravity yoga) involves the use of a suspended hammock to support you and help you achieve traditional yoga poses. This also deepens the stretches without overstressing your joints. By using the hammock you can quickly progress to more difficult poses as it helps take the weight off the spine and joints. Aerial Yoga can help to improve blood flow and is particularly good for opening up the spine. It is also a fantastic ab workout.

The Healthy Holiday Company offers the activity as part of a number of holidays around the world, including:
