This trend may just turn your idea of yoga upside down! Anti-gravity yoga combines yoga and Pilates, but adds an AntiGravity Hammock, which is a structural fabric connected by two overhead points that acts as a swing or soft trapeze. In an anti-gravity yoga class, people hang upside down and swing around on the hammock. The program is designed to help realign the spine, relieve tension in joints and balance the brain, all while defying gravity. “As you age, [yoga is] really, really good, especially for your posture, your flexibility,” says OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson. “It’s so important.”
