1. Acro Yoga at Yoga Instiinct

Why do yoga solo when you can do it in pairs? But it’s not just any basic yoga pair work we’re talking about here. Acro yoga combines yoga elements with acobatic movements, creating beautiful shapes with every pose. It all looks amazing in photos — but the process is a beautiful challenge that involves engaging core strength, coordination, open communication and focus to achieve that. The result? Toned limbs, a stronger core, improved balance and hopefully new friendships!

2. Aerial Yoga at Platinum Yoga

Also known as “elevated yoga”, “flying yoga” or “anti-gravity yoga”, aerial yoga pushes your yoga practice by having you hold an asana whilst suspended in the air. Balancing in the air only means that core strength is fully engaged so expect tighter abs, a perkier bum, and leaner limbs as a result.
