Recover with Aerial yoga, a fun innovative form of yoga that helps you to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity.

Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility, allowing you to move into positions you may not be free to do so in a traditional practice.

ASSISTED STRETCHING

An easy thing to skip post skiing, but fundamental to aiding recovery. Assisted stretching using the PNF technique allows trainers to stretch out your muscles enabling greater range of movement. Guided and progressive stretching will focus on alignment and ensure your whole body recovers optimally.
