If there’s ever an opportunity to embrace your inner child and hang like a bat, take it!
Suspension Yoga is a combination of yoga, Pilates and gymnastics that can deliver major benefits for your back and core. This novel exercise programme is all done in a hammock with plenty of inversions, which are moves done completely upside down.
Virgin Active believes that exercise should be fun – and there’s nothing more fun that hanging upside down while getting a full-body cardio workout. Our Master Suspension Yoga Trainer, Ceri Hannan, describes it as a “great way to get some variety into your fitness routine while developing a really healthy back through improved alignment and decompression of the spine”.
She adds that Suspension Yoga can even help build a better immune system by improving your lymphatic, digestive and circulatory systems – truly an all-round routine with multiple upsides to working out upside down.
Suspension Yoga is available at the following Virgin Active Collection Clubs across South Africa:
- Silo District, Cape Town
- Alice Lane, Sandton, Johannesburg
- Melrose Arch, Johannesburg
- Menlyn, Pretoria
- Moses Mabhida, Durban
