Project Description

Decompress Your Being

New classes coming December: Mon 7-8:15pm, Wed 8-9:15pm

For anyone looking to explore the benefits of yoga, or for anyone who would like to take their yoga practice off the mat and into the air, Ringstar is delighted to be the only certified AIReal Yoga studio in Ann Arbor. Intimate classes of six or fewer participants are guided by a certified AIReal Yoga instructor through postures both gentle and powerful to help increase overall flexibility, improve strength, decompress the spine, and bring the mind to a place of calm. No prior experience in yoga necessary.

Each student uses their own dedicated aerial hammock as a prop to enhance their practice and allow for postures that would otherwise be either prohibitively difficult, or simply impossible. Every class includes at least one full inversion. For those who aren’t comfortable with turning upside down, alternative poses are available. Savasana (corpse pose) is done with your whole body inside an open hammock, so that you have an uplifting anti-gravity experience during the class’s final, blissful posture.

Don’t let the use of an aerial hammock fool you- this is not a circus or fitness class, although it shares many of the same benefits. You do not need to have upper body strength, flexibility, or fit the “yoga body” stereotype to fully enjoy and reap the benefits of AIReal yoga (or any style of yoga, for that matter).

  • Relax Your Mind

  • Open Your Heart

  • Strengthen Bones and Muscles

  • Increase Your Flexibility

***Make sure this is the class you’re looking for! AIReal Yoga is a yoga class that calms and stretches the body using an aerial hammock as a prop. Aerial silks is a circus art that involves learning tricks and poses for either fitness or performance purposes.***

Clothing: typical yoga attire. Tops should be able to be tucked in for turning upside down. For hygienic purposes, it is requested that armpits be covered.

Learned AIReal yoga tonight. Had a blast and the teacher was 👏 awesome. Great experience and I will be going back!
