Posted on 08/31/2012

The Village of Orland Park Recreation Department is now one of two organizations in the Midwest to offer the newest form of yoga, Fly Yoga.

Participants will stretch further and hold challenging poses longer using a flowing fabric yoga hammock.

"We are very excited to offer Fly Yoga at the village's Sportsplex," said Fitness Manager Deborah Graham-Geghen. "The Village of Orland Park is among the pioneers in the Midwest, offering this newest addition to yoga that builds strength, flexibility and focus," she added.

Named the best new yoga in Chicago by Chicago Magazine's™ annual Best of Chicago edition, Fly Yoga is an exclusive style of suspension yoga. All of the maneuvers are achieved using hammocks suspended from a ceiling.

Newcomers and yoga enthusiasts alike can enjoy Fly Yoga's™ unique combination of traditional yoga techniques, gymnastics, dance and acrobatics. It is a one-of-a-kind workout that challenges people to improve their balance and strength.

The village's Fly Yoga classes are offered October 1 through November 10 with classes held during the day and evening hours. Private classes are also available upon request. The cost is $90 for residents, $135 for non-residents and $85 for Sportsplex members.

Registration and further information are available by visiting the Village of Orland Park Sportsplex at 11351 West 159th Street or by calling 708/ 645-7529.
