Aerial Slings are exactly that – large slings of silk hanging from the ceiling that allow you to move into a diverse range of figures and shapes. What we love in particular about the Aerial Slings is its ability to enhance fluid and dance-like movements as you execute your moves in a sequence - something which sets it apart from the similar Aerial Silks apparatus.
Also known as hammock or swings, it is a great introduction to Aerial Fitness, providing excellent support whilst you concentrate on getting your arms and legs in the right place! For seasoned practitioners, the mastery lies in keeping a constant flow through transitions, especially whilst spinning, which could prove to be an extremely rewarding outcome.
As with most of the aerial apparatus, your core is the focus whilst moving through the Aerial Slings, helping to improve both posture and stability. The slings are similarly set up to Aerial Yoga, albeit at a greater distance off the floor. The Aerial Slings are also particularly adept at accessing and broadening your shoulders, making for a seemingly easy but challenging workout.
