    The benefits of exercising on the hammock, hoop and trapeze are well documented. Besides giving you an adrenalin boost – because hey, how often can you be suspended in the air and call it exercise? – being in an inverted position has been found to relieve stress, improve mental function, and strengthen the immune system, all thanks to the increase in blood flow to your brain and lymphatic movement which helps flush out toxins and bacteria from your body.

    Over the last few years, the availability of aerial fitness in Singapore has spread. Check out these studios to experience a range of classes, from aerial yoga to the more artistic aerial silk. There’s bound to be a style that appeals to you!
