AntiGravity Yoga participants strike poses at Westminster
SALT LAKE CITY — Westminster is the only college in the country to launch an AntiGravity Yoga program, according to a press release. Westminster senior Tamer Begum is the nephew of Chris Harrison, the creator of AGY.
Begum is studying the benefits of AGY on people with chronic neck and back pain. His goal is to prove that AGY, compared to a regular yoga class, can improve back and neck pain in less time and lead to better overall athletic performance.
AGY involves yoga poses while flipping and swinging in midair, suspended in a silk hammock.
