“AntiGravity Yoga is revolutionary. When taught and performed accordingly, the technique, which is broken down to simple progressions, gives a cardiovascular workout with low impact while strengthening the musculo-skeletal system. It was challenging and exciting for my brain and body to move in 3D with endless possibilities of positions and shapes. It lengthens the muscles providing unique and effective flexibility stretches and lubricates the joints with mobility exercises. It allows for safe inversions that decompress the spine allowing a sense of space between the vertebral segments. I would definitely incorporate it into my fitness routine. Best of all, it’s fun to do!” — Marika Molnar, President of West Dance Physical Therapy and Director of Physical Therapy services to the NYCityBallet (source)
