Original AntiGravity® Yoga Gold Center

1st AntiGravity® Master Developer in Asia since 2012

You’ll find yourself suspended in the air cocooned in a silk hammock; swinging, balancing and attempting inverted poses with your head just inches off the ground. You may feel like a circus act but that’s the fun part of it. This yoga releases tension and helps in alignment, muscular strength and joint mobility.
