Defying Gravity


Don’t be afraid to take your fitness goals to new heights this year!

Here you see the feet of Lynchburg Living writer Rachel Dalton as she tries out a new Aerial Pilates class at Iron and Grace Fitness Studio in Lynchburg.

Aerial Pilates draws from all of the traditional elements of Pilates—but instead of lying on a mat, you utilize a silk hammock that’s suspended from the ceiling just a few inches above the ground. This extra challenge forces you to use different muscles.
