The origin of aerial yoga dates back to the master yogi Sundararaja Iyengar (B.K.S iyengar) who used ropes hung either from the ceiling or from a tree to do stretches and inversions. We find in particular an origin which comes from the art of the circus which uses fabric as for aerial dance.

The fabric being more pleasant than a rope, the discipline of aerial yoga was officially born with Christopher Harrison in 2007 with a method under the name: antigravity in New York.

Since then, methods and disciplines have multiplied around this suspended hammock. We then find salutations to the suspended sun/moon, Ayurvedic massages in the fabric, aerial pilates or even fitness…
