Having made its mark across the United States and over 40 countries worldwide, AntiGravity® Yoga, the routine that has revolutionized fitness, is finally coming to Manila.
Who knew you could lose weight while defying the laws of gravity? In an AntiGravity® Yoga class, students are suspended in a silk hammock above the ground while stretching and working core muscles. The technique is a combination of yoga posescoupled with acrobatics, calisthenics, and pilates.

Today, the technique has gained a tremendous following, having over 6,000 daily practitioners in over 52 locations worldwide.
“AntiGravity® Yoga has become so popular worldwide that there are already similar classes available,” says Alex Schlempp, Managing Partner of AntiGravity® Yoga.
“We’d like Filipinos to experience the real AntiGravity® class, which is backed by over ten years of research with acrobats and professional dancers,” he adds. Additionally, the program is the only of its kind accredited by international fitness certificationagencies, AFAA, ACE and CYQ.
