A Cottage Grove yoga studio offers an aerial twist on the mat-based exercise program.
Kula Yoga and Wellness, 445 W. Cottage Grove Road, teaches yoga classes using a silk cloth as a prop that helps students achieve poses that are difficult in other forms of yoga practice.
Owner Becky Petersen said a variety of poses can help with spinal decompression and open the chest and hip flexors, for example.
"It just supports your body in a way that you just can't do in a floor class," Petersen said.
Watch Petersen and aerial yoga practitioners demonstrate several poses at the studio Wednesday morning in the above video.
Kula plans to open another studio in Madison on Monroe Street this fall.
Kula Yoga and Wellness offers several fitness classes including aerial, chair and yoga fusion sessions. Visit flywithkula.com for more information.
