The team at Movement Halo, in Gilbert Street, will really get you floating. They offer a range of Aerial Movement classes which combine acrobatic arts, fitness, pilates and yoga. More than just “Aerial Yoga”, the suspension movement system has therapeutic benefits – the use of the Aerial hammocks to support the body during movement can ease pressure, create space in the joints, decrease spinal compression and create joy in body and mind. Choose from beginners, intermediate, conditioning and even aerial Yin!
Adelaide is overflowing with green spaces for you to explore. Why not grab your mat and take a self-guided yoga class in Adelaide Park Lands surrounded by trees and singing birds? Or, if the idea of leading your own class sounds a bit daunting, there are plenty of yoga teachers in the city who are happy to meet you down at the park for a one-on-one class. Check out the instructor listings on Superprof.
Big Heart Adventures
While Big Heart Adventures are generally your go-to nature therapy and walking tour experts, from time to time they include a yoga class as part of their offering. Think a gentle walk through the Adelaide Botanic Gardens connecting with nature followed by an energising yoga class amongst the trees. The best of both worlds really!
