I learned about yoga in India in the 1990’s and it changed my entire perspective on life and my art of movement. I am now honored to bring back my own version of mind/body connection that I call AntiGravity.

Over 20,000 people per day enjoy AntiGravity’s mind, body, and health benefits. Some of the latest countries to adopt the high-flying fitness phenomenon include India, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Mongolia, China, Indonesia and Australia.
India in particular holds a special significance in the inception of AntiGravity Yoga®, created by Christopher Harrison in 2007. Recently back from his first AntiGravity training in Mumbai, Mr. Harrison remarks, “I learned about yoga in India in the 1990’s and it changed my entire perspective on life and my art of movement. I am now honored to bring back my own version of mind/body connection that I call AntiGravity. I pay tribute to the greats before me and the beautiful legacy of yoga in doing so.”
The beauty of AntiGravity is that everyone can do it. The techniques, with over 1,000 moves, are catered to accommodate anyone who is active, and incorporate moves from traditional yoga, Pilates, and barre methods. Classes range from 60 to 90 minutes and include AntiGravity’s signature levitating zero-compression inversions in The Harrison AntiGravity® Hammock. Inversions not only help alleviate back pain by applying traction, but also promote the flow of endorphins to leave participants feeling joyful, empowered, and uplifted.
“There is so much to learn about a culture according to how they move their bodies and where they hold their tension,” says Mr. Harrison. “I am learning as much as I am sharing and honored to be healing both bodies and minds.”
Adds Mr. Harrison, “The Human Body is the greatest work of art ever created, and each person is its caretaker. AntiGravity techniques are celebrated around the world as a methodology for health and a philosophy of lightness. When practitioners open up space in the body, space is also opened in the mind; AntiGravity techniques help people to open up and feel free.”
With a multitude of mind and body benefits, it is no wonder that international demand for AntiGravity continues to grow. Hanging upside decompresses the spinal column, helps refresh the circulatory and endocrine systems, and fosters greater joint mobility. Plus being suspended in air requires participants to engage more muscles, simultaneously toning the core, arms, and legs in one stimulating workout.
Expansion plans continue to take flight with AntiGravity offerings in Vietnam, Dubai, and Bahrain.
