Orland Park Sportsplex is the second Midwest location to offer Fly Yoga, named the “best new yoga” in Chicago Magazine’s annual “Best of Chicago” edition.
“Fly Yoga is a great way to improve flexibility and balance using a hammock suspended from the ceiling,” Deborah Graham-Geghen, Sportsplex fitness manager, said. “This has been a great addition to people’s workout routines.”
Fly Yoga is a combination of yoga techniques, gymnastics and dance.
Sportsplex Fly Yoga instructor, personal trainer Terri Randolph began teaching the program in September.
Randolph learned the technique from the instructor who originally developed Fly Yoga, she said.
“Fly Yoga helps to stretch and strengthen the muscles, promote balance and relaxation and relieve stress,” Randolph said. “I’ve had clients tell me it helps with their migraine headaches and lower back pain.”
Randolph said men and women at any fitness level can benefit from Fly Yoga.
Fly Yoga is offered at the Sportsplex, 11351 W. 159th St., Orland Park, in different sessions throughout the year with classes held during the day and evening. Private classes are available on request.
The next session of classes is Monday to Aug. 10 at a variety of times Monday through Saturday.
The cost is $90 for residents, $135 for non-residents and $85 fpr Sportsplex members.
