Antigravity yoga class is held at Define Dubai, a new studio in Dubai Marina that is part of the US-based Define fitness chain.
The hour-long Define Mind class slows down the pace for active people to allow for muscle recovery with yoga-style poses and deep stretches. There are two versions: the traditional class focuses on calming the mind and working on mobility; and the Swing yoga, which involves inversions to improve flexibility.
Swing yoga is a stretching, strengthening and flexibility-boosting class, where you use silk hammocks. Class starts off with some mat-based warm up moves, before hopping into the hammock. Silk hammocks take the weight off your joints and make handstands a breeze
Some of the poses involve using the it as a prop – for example, stretching out your hamstrings by having one heel in the silk and the other planted on the floor. As you build your confidence, you can even get into some backbends and inversions.
Wear form-fitting yoga wear so you don’t get tangled up in the hammock.
