Aeroyoga ®, The New Fun and Beneficial Method for Body & Mind
Introducing our first AeroYoga ® article in a specialized magazine in English! I tell you that a few weeks ago my friend Leticia Rubio contacted Aerial Yoga Mag … and the rest is history …

Yoga is becoming more popular these days. Especially now during the pandemic of COVID 19. People feel more anxious, the case of depression has spike and they are trying to find new ways to ease their minds. On the other side, we have people with different back issues, that would like to start with yoga due to their great benefits on the body but find it difficult to perform some of the poses on their yoga mat and inversions is one of them.
That’s when 20 years ago I, Rafael Martínez had in mind a different way of doing yoga and decide to create the Aeroyoga Method and Yoga Creativo© with the help of sports medicine specialist. With this new way, a person can perform different poses while in suspension or on the yoga mat with our hammock swing, but in a more therapeutic way.
With so many designs on the market I want it that, everybody who gets on the swing to stay focus while performing the different poses.
The type of fabric must be the best quality because it would be the one responsible to carry the weight during the practice. Plus I want it to be special so that the students or people can identify our brand. After some research, we came up with the orange and white.
Orange symbolize energy, power, creativity, protection, plus as spiritual meaning because is the color used on the Buddhist monk’s robes.
The white means peace, harmony, stability, meditation and is the color of learning. If for some reason the student loose the grip, these colors will guide them back to their main focus during the practice.
The hammock is secured on the ceiling with strong hooks and holding from heavy triple thread daisy straps that hold three different length straps would be hanging on the side of the swings to help with the grip and raised the legs for other health benefits and movement to different height levels of them during the retreat class. The fabric would serve as an important tool for the inversions as well as for relaxation, the feeling in it is like being inside of a cloud, soft and comfortable.
Plus is antiallergenic something that is very important because it would be in constant contact with the skin of the student.
We are also proud to say that our brand became very popular due to the fact that we where the first company in the world to create a method of training and meditation adapted 100% together with hammock swing. We reinvent and redesign the perfect hammock swing.
Being the first with these characteristics and adaptations made its way on the market stronger and show the world the benefits of doing traditional yoga and pilates but in suspension. Our philosophy is this, practice any routine of exercise is the best for our body and should be always guided by a professional.
We had collaborations with doctors, physiotherapists, specialists in yoga and pilates.
With the Aeroyoga Method, you can obtain all the benefits with 3- 4 hours of practice.
We start the classes by sitting on the swing and taking a deep breath to prepare the body. This helps to expand our thoracic cave and our lungs receive fresh oxygen. The student will take a strong grip of the sides of the hammock and will slowly start to push his body back while raising their legs in the air.
When we are suspended upside down the receptors in our brain sense the raised in blood flow and immediately would make the heart slow down. Our lymphatic system would flush away all the accumulated waste and return oxygenated blood through all our bodies.
The pressure that our veins received most of the time decrease and this helps with the issue of varicose veins, edema, and tired legs. Our immune system would respond positively to this too. Fresh blood would start to be received in the face making you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. The hormonal balance would improve thanks to the positive effects of this practice on the thymus, thyroid, pituitary gland, and hypothalamus.
The spine receives the most benefits of all, axial decompression, making it more relax and oxygenated. People that suffer from a sluggish digestive system would benefit from it as it drains and flushes all the toxins in this area. The lower abdomen strengthens with each movement.
As for our mental state, it increases our self-esteem for the whole day.
The use of electronics or multitasking sometimes decreases our ability to stay focus. Working with the balance makes our whole consciousness in synchronicity with our body and have an instant flush, we called this Aero Sirsasana.
But don’t be scare thinking that all the poses are upside down in total suspension. We also make some semi suspensions on the floor with the yoga mat. The student would lay their back on the mat facing up and one of the three straps would be lower and the feet would be put through the loops making it higher than the chest. What this would do it stimulate the parasympathetic system and any anxiety that the person might have would decrease, bringing calm and balance to their body.
Our Aeroyoga ® Method provides so many benefits that we received two different awards.
The first on 2017 Ranking as Best Educational Center by the Asociación Española de Escuela y Negocios. Then on October 25 of 2018 at Madrid, Spain we received the highest award by the Ilustre Academia de las Ciencias de la Salud Ramón y Cajal grant us the Medalla de Oro al Mérito Sanitario (Illustrated Academy of Science and Health Ramón y Cajal gave the The Medal of Gold for Health Merit)
