Water and an open mind. You may also purchase your own hammock if you would like; however, one is always provided for you.
Can I do it if I have never done yoga before?
Yes! No prior knowledge is required.
Do I need to be physically fit?
Not necessarily. AGY is easier than regular yoga because the AntiGravity Hammock supports you in your poses. While, AGY is easiest for someone who maintains a consistent fitness regime and has a strong core, you will build your fitness by participating in AGY!
Should I come on an empty stomach?
We recommend having something in the stomach to stave off dizziness, however, we do not recommend a big meal.
Will I get dizzy?
If one has a strong propensity for dizziness or a “hips over head” spatial awareness style dyslexia this is not the technique for them.
How will I feel after?
You will feel taller and lighter. Your muscles will have a pump and you will be refreshed!
Are you sure the AG®Y Hammock will hold me?
Every portion of the AntiGravity® Hammock is rated for over 1000 pounds. The points in the ceiling in an AGY franchise has been placed by a professional contractor and certified by an engineer.
Can AntiGravity® Yoga make me taller?
Yes! Our promise to you is that after class you will be stretched to your maximum height, varying between ¼” to 1 ½” taller, unfortunately, the effects are not cumulative.
