What is BODi Aerial?
BODi Aerial is a practice that uses a low hanging, wide aerial fabric (silks) like a hammock. Suspended from the ceiling it is used to ease pressure, and create space in your joints, decrease compression in your spine, increase mobility and fluidity, improve your balance and co-ordination. It also offers muscular tension release through decompression and hydration of the vertebral discs within the spinal column. This allows for more space for the nerves within the spinal cord
It is an incredible tool and practice for self care, expansion and joy. If
you dream of flying with grace, with fun, with connection and with
confidence, then come see how to make that dream come true.
Research on suspension training indicates that you have to use your core muscles more when you’re suspended than when you’re on the ground to keep yourself stable. The silks can be used to aid and support or to challenge, building core and upper-arm strength that they don’t build in traditional yoga, where most arm movements are about pushing, not pulling.
The Art of Holding On and Letting Go
(and the art of climbing)
I trail my fingertips
across the jagged face,
dip into the scars
of wind and water.
Scan the puzzle
of grooves and contours,
scout the perfect path.
Crack to crevice to nub to flake.
I clutch the ridges
of rock, forearms burn
fingertips rub raw.
on a limestone dime,
on the lip
of the world.
When every piece falls
it’s like a dance,
The art of
and letting go,
at the same time.
