Get Upside Down with Upside Motion

Cradling you where you need it, while encouraging you to challenge your limits. A balm for wellness of your body and mind that melts all your tension away. Makes you a better, not to mention, more toned and flexible person, and all while having lots of fun! 

We think this year marks the start of your beautiful relationship with AntiGravity Aerial Fitness at Upside Motion.

Hailed from NYC, AntiGravity Aerial offers the benefits of aerial acrobatics (think Cirque du Soleil), dance, yoga and suspension fitness for a unique full-body workout. Using a special fabric-swing suspended from the ceiling, your weight will be supported, your spine and joints safely protected while you strengthen, tone and stretch in inverted levitations, handstands and mid-air flips. 


- Stronger core muscles and a well-toned upper body
- Improved posture and reduced tension in the neck and spine
- Increased flexibility and joint mobility particularly in the hips, spine and shoulders
- Develop greater body awareness and balance in a new aerial dimension

We can't wax-lyrical about it if we've never tried it, so try it out, we did... Here are some photos we took at the Upside Motion studio at Orchard Shopping Centre last week.

A very cosy and exclusive studio

Next to the AntiGravity room was one with Reformer machines for Pilates.

Ah, where all the action is... We wanted to start swinging away immediately.

And, away we go!
There's arm and core power needed here as you lean and stretch as far as possible to the front before stretching to the side with one leg bent, to the back, to the other side, and back to the front again. It's like you're drawing a circle with the hammock.

Activating our core muscles, we form parallel lines with the ground while suspended.
We didn't do a bad job, huh?

We mean (monkey) business!
That's just one of the basic inversions of AntiGravity'.

Check out how we achieved it HERE  with Mirna, our lovely instructor from Italy.

We start to wind down.

Doing the angel pose very naturally.

We transit slowly into...

The final and most relaxing pose as you cocoon in the very comfy silk-and-cotton hammock.
