Instead of just doing the regular workout, take your yoga to an entirely new level with flying yoga. This aerial technique is one of the most popular and enjoyable forms of yoga to reach Los Angeles since the invention of the yoga mat. Flying yoga involves suspension via silk cords, soft ropes, or other hammock-like material. You'll be doing your poses off the floor, and your body will thank you for this gentle and exciting form of balance. Here are some of the top studios around to get your cobra pose above ground.
