CTV News features AGY at the Interlude Spa Dartmouth
New to Canada and you can be the first to experience it! This fitness regimen using anti-gravity hammocks (silk-like slings) is designed to increase strength, flexibility and agility with the added decompressive benefits of hanging upside down. Get fit, have fun and feel like a circus performer! All levels welcomed.
Check out the AGY discussion on the Lululemon athletica blog.
Class information for all participants:
- Please remove all jewelry (rings, watches, bracelets) and please do not wear any clothing with buckles or zippers (things that can snag the hammocks).
- For better comfort when using the hammocks, please wear tops with short sleeves. Please do not wear clothes that are slippery (high lycra content). Cotton is best! Please do not wear socks or shoes - bare feet only!
- A good sports bra is recommended as you will spend time upside down.
- Anti-Gravity Yoga classes are space available as this class is a high demand service! You cannot pre-book a drop-in or a make-up class. This is a first-come-first-serve process. You must arrive early and check in at spa reception to receive your stand-by card. If there is an available hammock at class commencement, it's yours!
- Being on time for class is essential for any fitness class to be safe and effective. As every hammock must be custom fitted every time you arrive to class, you must be on time (5 minutes prior to class start time) for this fitting. Once the class starts, the instructor cannot take valuable class time away from the participants to get you set up with your hammock. If you are late, you unfortunately cannot take part in the class.
