CW6’s Kelli Johnson and intern, Brianna Davis, try Aerial Yoga for the first time
There are various types of yoga and aerial yoga, also known as anti-gravity yoga has gained popularity in recent years. “The silk supports you, so it allows you to go in deeper stretches,” says Debbie Puskar, who is an Aerial Yoga Instructor at Mountain Shadows Resort. “I think everybody needs to try it, it’s really beneficial,” she added. The class involves a lot of inversions. “When you hang upside down, the blood flows to your brain, so when it flows to your head, it creates the serotonin, which gives you lots of energy throughout the day,” said Puskar. The resort in Paradise Valley, Ariz. posts their fitness schedule online. Aerial yoga classes are held on Fridays at 9:15 a.m. To register, reservations are required by 6 p.m. the day before the class. Fitness Classes are listed at $20 for resort guests and $25 for locals.
