AERIAL & KURUNTHA
Fly High Yoga
is an aerial or anti-gravity yoga, it has evolved from a classic Iyengar Yoga Kuruntha practice.
Kuruntha means puppet or puppet on a string in a South Indian language. There are a variety of styles of aerial yoga, some use hammocks reminiscent of circus silks and others use ropes or belts.
At Satsang we use Fly High Yoga belts which have been developed by Jose Luis Jimenez. The beauty of the FHY belts is their simplicity, they are much more versatile and less cumbersome than other belts and aerial yoga equipment. They can be attached to any secure chin up bar, secure hooks, eyelets or a tree branch.
The fly high practice places a strong emphasis on anatomical alignment and stability.
This is a catalyst practice, it brings a variety of benefits very quickly - you will see and feel improvements in strength, balance, stability, agility as well as spinal and joint decompression.

At Satsang Kuruntha classes we use Fly High Yoga belts suspended above the mats. These classes follow grounded variations of aerial postures. Either a hand or foot is connected to the ground at all times. It is a an effective way to gain confidence and improve skills and transitions for aerial and other practices.
Your safety is important,
you must complete an Intro to Aerial Yoga course and display competency in entering and dismounting foundation postures before joining a group Aerial or Kuruntha Yoga class. Some people need to repeat the Intro to Aerial Yoga safety course more than once.
You may attend the Tuesday 5pm dedicated Intro to Aerial Yoga class without completing a safety course.
Bookings are essential for both Kuruntha and Aerial classes as class numbers are limited.
