OM SHANTI Aerial Pilates

AERIAL PILATES is a modern approach of the classic Pilates method, combined with the lack of gravity and suspension. The sling allows the trainee to perform exercises in different positions and to increase or decrease the difficulty of the classic Pilates exercises, since the 20% up to the 80% of the body weight can be transferred to it. The body is deeply trained and in the process the practitioners discover abilities that they did not even suspect having. Apart from the benefits of the Pilates method, practitioners take advantage of the extra possibilities offered by the sling.

Here are some of the advantages of Aerial Pilates:
