Yoga has exploded in popularity.
There's traditional yoga, hot yoga and now there's something new: Anti-gravity yoga.
It offers the same poses, only you do them suspended in a contraption that looks like a cross between a trapeze and a cocoon.
Anti-Gravity Yoga is the brainchild of former gymnast and Broadway dancer Christopher Harrison.
He created trapeze-like hammocks, hoping to take traditional yoga to a whole new level.
By having the anti-gravity hammock supporting you from underneath the arms and from the waistline, it's there to help you to come into some of the more challenging poses.
If you can let go, Harrison says aerial yoga can allow you to stretch much deeper, and move into poses you might never have thought possible on the floor.
