This latest fitness trend is really taking off├óΓé¼┬ª it’s aerial yoga!

The trend is so popular that classes all over are selling out, with waiting lists growing longer every day.

What happens is a person basically performs yoga, but all while suspended from the ceiling by a hammock or thick rope looking device.

An aerial yoga instructor said:

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of interest in the classes. People are really keen to try something different and innovative and this offers something really new.”

Many of the positions are performed while hanging upside down so it’s good for you in different ways than normal yoga.

Another instructor said:

“One of the benefits is that all your internal organs are resting because they├óΓé¼Γäóre upside down. The blood is reaching parts of the body it normally wouldn├óΓé¼Γäót reach and giving your organs a rest.”

Even celebs like Mariah Carey and Pink have really gotten into it!

Sounds dangerous and dizzying to us.
