A new yoga school that's trying something new is now open in Traverse City.
Opening March 24, Shanti School of Yoga offers some things you would expect to find in a new yoga studio: gentle yoga, hot yoga, and Zumba classes. But amid those on the schedule is a new class: zero gravity yoga.
Participants use a swing or hammock-like prop suspended from the ceiling to help them achieve some of those yoga postures you thought you'd never be able to do, in perfect form.
The zero gravity yoga classes also help build muscle strength and flexibility--not to mention, it looks like a lot of fun.
Since the style is new to Traverse City, and, as far as we can tell, Michigan, Shanti School of Yoga offered free introductory classes, 30 minutes long, so would-be attendees can try out the new class without any charge, for their official opening March 24 and 25. That's over now, but you can still book a regular class.
