Aerial Yoga Tutorial - Shoulder Stand

Today, you will learn how to do the shoulder stand. This is great for your abs!

To start, shake out the hammock to make sure it doesn’t have any folds. Stand with your back to the fabric and gather about four or five handfuls. Then hop up so that the full seat is inside the hammock. Lean back and bring your feet in so that your whole body is in the fabric. You want to make sure that you have the fabric all the way around your shoulders, resting at the base of your neck. You also want to make sure that you have at least a foot of fabric hanging over the tops of your feet.

Once you have those two things, extend your arms in front of you. Grab the fabric in front of you and engage your abs to pull your legs up to the sky. This is difficult for you there healing your feet against those knots to kind of help you stabilize yourself. You don't need to be afraid that your legs are gonna fall forward because even if they do the fabric gets hanging in front of your shins is going to catch you. 

You can rest here for a while and when you're ready to come down just slowly lower back down folding your legs and walking your feet out of the fabric. Bring yourself into a sitting position as feels comfortable for you and you're done.
