What is Unnata Aerial Yoga?
Unnata Aerial Yoga combines a traditional Hatha Yoga class with the use of a Yoga hammock prop to assist students with elongation of the spine and proper alignment so that they can find Yoga.
There are other styles like antigravity yoga, aerial yoga, yoga swim… that uses hammock; What is the difference between, these yoga styles and Unnata?
I am not familiar with all the styles/brands that use a Yoga hammock, so I can only make a very general observation: Unnata Aerial Yoga enhances a traditional Hatha Yoga class, but does not attempt to replace it. Many of the movements and/or exercises of Unnata Aerial Yoga continuously reinforce deep breathing and the stilling of the mind that allows for Yoga to arise.
