Yoga takes flight

Six Senses Spa Nha Trang in Vietnam becomes the first
resort to offer Aerial Yoga.


The Six Senses Spa Nha Trang, which is located at Evason Ana
Mandara, has added Aerial Yoga to its health and wellbeing
offering. The classes bring together stretching, breathing and
meditation with gymnastics and aerial arts.


Aerial yoga uses a hammock, made of a soft and supple
parachute-silk fabric, which is suspended from above and used
to support the body’s weight during a sequence of postures. It
shares the mind-body connection principles of traditional yoga
practice, while weightlessness helps remove compression from
the spine and opens up joints, leading to increased stress and
tension release.


Additional benefits include muscle strengthening and
lengthening, low impact cardiovascular conditioning, increased
mobility, deeper body awareness and improved self-esteem. In
addition, Aerial yoga adds an entirely new dimension to each
individual’s yoga practice and stimulates the release of happy
hormones. The classes are conducted in Nha Trang’s beachfront
spa salas.


‘Aerial yoga is new, exciting, incredibly beneficial, and
aligns perfectly with the Six Senses philosophy,’ explains the
resort’s Spa Manager Tran Thi Kim Ngan. ‘In our constant
pursuit for youth, it’s a great way to have fun while working
out ““ leaving guests feeling both powerful and fabulous.’
