Aerial Yoga Butterfly Pose + Ankle Inversion Tutorial

Follow along through our aerial yoga butterfly pose guide to learn how to do the butterfly and ankle inversion poses!

How to Get Into the Yoga Butterfly Pose

Start with the fabric in front of you. Then, bring yourself up into a standing position one foot at a time. Lower yourself into the butterfly pose with the bottoms of your feet together. From here, you'll bring your arms in front of the fabric to feel nice and secure. The fabric should be around your ankles and not your feet, making you feel extra secure. You are now in the butterfly legs pose. Feel free to stay here for awhile and relax, meditate, and stretch out your hips.

To invert, grab the fabric at the front of your hips and gently let yourself fall forward. Adjust to whatever feels comfortable on your feet. From here, you can let your arms hang or cross them. You should feel gravity pulling down your spine, making you feel really great. When you're ready to come up, bring your hands behind you and slowly walk yourself up. Then, pull yourself up back into that butterfly pose.

From here, bring yourself down one foot at a time. After inversions, you should bring yourself down into this pose. You should be partially horizontal to the ground with the fabric behind your shoulder. This movement will prevent you from fainting or getting a headache!
