Aerial Yoga is not recommended for pregnant women, those who have recently had eye surgery, or those suffering from vertigo. If you are prone to motion sickness or are not used to having your head lower than your heart (like a forward bend), you could experience light headedness or dizziness. If over-the-counter medications like Dramamine are effective for your motion sickness, we recommend taking them before class. Consult your doctor before giving this class a try.
