2. Aerial Yoga. If your yoga routine has grown stale, take it to new heights! Aerial yoga takes your yoga practice off the mat and into a hammock to relieve compression in the joints and to align the entire body from head to toe. While it may look like you wandered into a Cirque de Soleil rehearsal, if you can keep up in a regular yoga class, try this new challenge for further physical and mental growth.

What to expect: Incorporating components from yoga, dance, Pilates and resistance training, aerial yoga is a full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscle and works to realign your body using the compression of gravity to elongate and rejuvenate. Classes cover simple inversions to more advanced poses and transitions.

What you’ll need: An aerial yoga hammock. Hammocks are looped fabric secured from two points overhead, hanging from the ceiling. The hammock acts like a swing or trapeze, to allow you to move, stretch and hang in ways you’ve never experienced before.

Where to find it: Find classes near you with a quick Google search of “aerial yoga” and your city. (This site caught our eyeballs.)
