ABOUT THE TEACHER -
Deboshree Roy Chowdhury is a professional aerialist and dancer with a background of over 10 years spent in training. She has been trained in Yoga throughout her dancing career and specializes in Hatha Yoga and Aerial Flow certified by the UK Yoga Alliance. She has been teaching extensively and passionately to help people grow stronger and more connected to themselves.
 
HER PURPOSE 
My main aim is to make people conquer their fears and become stronger mentally and physically. For that purpose, aerial flow is my means. To fly, to do anything that is anti gravity requires not just strength but also the courage to let go of a lot of our fears. And in doing so and conquering our fears in one facet of our lives, we trickle that confidence into all arenas of our life, creating a base for a stronger mind which can then walk the path of meditation and understanding the self fearlessly.  Trusting one's body is of key importance and through aerial flow, I have begun to see that marvellous change in the lives of my students and its my deepest desire to spread that knowledge furthermore.
  
THE CURRICULUM 
My entire curriculum is an amalgamation of my knowledge in dancing, aerial and yoga. All of the asanas that are present and passed down from time immemorial, have their own version in aerial flow.
Some of the asanas that remain a constant through the class are: 
Hanging Headstand - SIRSHASANA 
Shoulderstand - SARVANGASANA 
Bow Pose - DHANURASANA 
Extended Leg Stretch - UPAVISHTHAKONASANA
Half Pigeon Pose - ARDHA KAPOTASANA 
Warrior Pose - VIRABHADRASANA
 
The rest of the class flows using the help of soothing music to aid people in finding the connections from one asana to the next. It isn't the asana in itself that is of utmost importance but the way it is executed and the state of the mind while executing it. Each body is different and must be given the space and time to express itself in its best possible way.
 
BENEFITS OF AERIAL FLOW- 
1) Aerial Flow is great for spinal Decompression and hence great for anyone who is seeking relief from lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder stiffness.
2) It challenges the central nervous system and enhances our mental capability.
3) Very effective for core strengthening and toning and mobility of upper body.
4) A key benefit is that it gives you an adrenaline rush while being against gravity. It also releases “happy” hormones like endorphins, serotonin,dopamine, oxytocin, which can help to lift your mood and also make you feel more energetic.
5) It also improves the circulation of blood, thus combating aging and its symptoms. Aerial yoga also helps detoxify the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which lowers the onset of various cardiovascular issues.
