Los Angeles:  Yoga is a much loved fitness formula for international celebrities, but names like Gwyneth Paltrow, Mariah Carey, Natalie Portman and Pink have taken a special liking to aerial yoga.

Aerial yoga involves the use of a suspended hammock to support your body and help you achieve traditional yoga poses. This also deepens the stretches without overstressing the joints.

By using the hammock you can quickly progress to more difficult poses as it helps take the weight off the spine and joints, and it can help to improve blood flow and is particularly good for opening up the spine. It is also a good ab workout, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The Healthy Holiday Company retreats around the world are offering the experience of this 'airborne' yoga.
