Gravity Yoga

Founded in 2007 by Lucas Rockwood, Gravity yoga is amongst the youngest forms of practice. Nevertheless, it has become one of the fastest-growing types over the last few years. 

Unlike other forms of yoga that focus on strength, Gravity yoga aims to improve the flexibility and mobility of an individual. This is accomplished by harnessing the power of gravity, as the name suggests, and providing muscles the freedom to relax and be passive. 

Gravity yoga is often associated with Yin yoga which focuses on slow movements help for a long period of time. 

Three Principles

Gravity yoga is simple and achievable even by beginners. There are three main principles that breathe through the practice.

Hanging Loose

The number one rule of Gravity yoga involves completely relaxing into the stretch. By releasing all tension, one can surrender to the force of gravity and achieve optimum mobility. 

Breathing 4/8

The 4/8’s rhythm refers to breathing four counts through the nose and breathing out eight counts through the mouth. This stimulates our parasympathetic nervous system which allows the body to stretch further. 

Holding your Time 

One of the goals of Gravity yoga is to pursue a hold for longer each time you practice. 

Mobility like No Other

The feats your body can accomplish are almost unfathomable, especially with the right instruction and direction.
