Welcome to Just Breathe Aerials
Reboot yourself, find inner peace and tranquility.
AntiGravity Yoga was invented by aerial performer Christopher Harrison, a former gymnast and Broadway choreographer. It involves performing a series of exercises inspired by yoga, Pilates, calisthenics and aerial acrobatics in a hammock-like apparatus, in order to achieve a total-body workout. Apart from being a major stress-buster due to its high fun quotient, there are some serious health benefits associated with AntiGravity Yoga. In addition to decompressing the spine, AntiGravity Yoga can help to increase strength and flexibility. Along with AntiGravity Yoga, we offer a variety of other classes.
Just Breathe Aerials was founded by Lori Aragona in 2016 and later joined by co-owner, Jennifer Wiggins. Together, they hope to open multiple studios and bring a whole new world of fitness both mentally and physically for our community.

Poses in this class will help to strengthen that trust in order to master the many flips and tricks Aerial Yoga introduces. Deep Breathing through movements will acquire benefits of inversions and stretches. Inversions are held longer and stretches are deeper. Holding poses to acquire balance and strength can be intense. No impact to joints or bones provided by support of the hammock at all times.
AntiGravity (Beginner) Antigravity is the fun new way of rejuvenating our mind, body and soul. This class is best for a true newbie. This class is where you slowly start trusting the hammock. You will begin to understand that working through some challenging poses may actually rejuvenate your body. The hammock supports your lower body safely for your first Harrison hammock inversion. Holding the hips in the hammock during this inversion allows the spine to naturally lengthen without the pressure or weight of your legs to compress. This lengthening creates an endorphin rush to make you happier, healthier and possibly taller. No impact to joints or bones provided by support of the hammock at all times. AntiGravity (Advanced) This class is for the person looking for a new fun way to workout! Reawakening muscles you didn’t even know you had! You will experience a Harrison hammock inversion and push yourself to get as many benefits from the hammock as possible. Workout upside down, strengthen your core in an inversion, and work your arms out with the hammocks assistance. You may even learn a few tricks!! The possibilities are endless! No impact to joints or bones provided by support of the hammock at all times.

Welcome to your session of self-rejuvenation. In this class there are no inversions the hammock are low to the ground.

We begin and end the class with mindful mediation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
Wear workout clothing that covers the armpits (sleeve) and legs. Cotton or cotton blend fabric works best because it's non-slippery. Make sure tops are not too loose. Keep in mind you'll be upside down a lot. Yoga pants or sweats are best but make sure they are somewhat tight around the leg. No socks, unless they are sticky. You can use sticky gloves if you have a weak grip. NO JEWELRY as it may tear the silk.
Which class should I start with?
Everyone starts as a beginner and we require that you take 3 Antigravity FUNdamentals classes before moving on to more advanced aerial classes. You will also find several other classes where all levels are welcome, such as Restorative Antigravity yoga, Vinyasa Flow yoga, and Pilates.
What if I'm afraid?
We work very closely with you to monitor your movements and help you. You will never be forced to perform a move. We demonstrate every move before the class members perform them. During an inversion you're only about 3 inches off the ground. Over 6000+ people practice this form of Yoga daily and safely! Most people are afraid in the beginning and then after a class they can't believe they were so afraid! Don't let fear stop you!

Arrive on Time! Please be on time or 5 minutes early. Walking in late is a distraction to other students as well as the instructor. Stay on the instructed Level! Please sign up for classes of your capability. There are 3 levels to the hammock classes, be mindful of prerequisites. If the class seems to be too easy for you, please follow the instructor at his or her pace. Do not choose to do exercises that are not performed because other students may see this and try a move they have not been taught, which is DANGEROUS, DISRUPTIVE, and DISRESPECTFUL to the instructor. If you are not certified, you do not have the knowledge to teach safely. No Perfumes or Oils! Please come in CLEAN and scent free. Many people are allergic to scents and perfumes. Odors can linger in the hammocks and also be distracting when finding your Zen. All devices OFF! Please be sure to turn all devices off. The studio is a place of peace, serenity and personal growth not only for you but for others around you.
When you book a class, please keep in mind that you have up to 6 hours prior to the start time of that class to cancel without penalty. If you do not cancel 6 hours prior to class or sooner, you will either lose your pass or be charged a $10 cancellation fee per class, or your account may be in default (unless you call or contact us). Thank you in advance!
Remove all Jewelry! Please be sure to remove ALL jewelry for a hammock class. This is for your safety. If the hammock gets torn, it can be very dangerous. Notify the instructor of any jewelry that cannot be removed so we can safely cover it.
