Why I am obsessed with Aerial Arts.......and you need to try it.

Aerial arts has it all, combining athleticism, grace, and creativity. But did you know that it also has many benefits for your mental and physical health? 

  1. Strength and Flexibility: There is no denying, whichever Aerial Art you choose your get the beneift of a full-body workout and will improve your strength, endurance, and flexibility. It requires you to engage your core, upper body, and lower body muscles, helping to build lean muscle mass
    and improve overall body composition. Many people worry about injury during aerial arts, but actually the moves and poses performed in aerial
    arts require a lot of stretching and flexibility, which can improve joint mobility and reduce the risk of injury. 
  2. Balance and Coordination:  Aerial arts requires a lot of balance and coordination, which can improve your proprioception and body awareness. Proprioception is your sense of where your body is in space, and improving it can help you feel more confident and stable in your movements. Aerial arts also challenges your coordination and timing, which can improve your motor skills and reaction time.

  3. Self-Esteem and Sense of Achievement: Aerial arts can be challenging and even intimidating at first, but wow do you feel good as you improve. There is nothing quite like that feeling of finally nailing that move that you couldn't even conceive of a few weeks ago. You will see changes in your body you can be proud of and more importantly you will feel stronger every week you practice. 

  4. Reduces Stress and Anxiety: Aerial arts is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. The physical activity involved in aerial arts releases endorphins, which are natural mood-boosting chemicals that can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.  Its also incredibly mindful. When you are up in the are you have no choice but to focus and be in the moment. It's like a powerful mediation with the bonus of physcial activity all rolled into one.

  5. Fosters Creativity and Expression: Aerial arts is an art form that allows for creativity and self-expression. You can use your movements to tell a

    story or express emotions, and there's no limit to the possibilities. It's not about being perfect, its about finding your style, finding the music and moves that move you and sharing those.


I started Love is in the Aerial because Aerial Arts can give you all these things and are also truly inclusive. It doesn't matter how old you are, your fitness level or if you are differently abled, there is a way to do aerial for you and you can reap all these benefits.
