The 73-year-old Rolling Stones rocker has taken up the fun form of yoga because as well as helping to increase inner strength and core stability, it claims to build levels of the “happy hormones” serotonin and dopamine.
Virgin Active anti-gravity yoga teacher-trainer Nuno Campos told the Daily Mail newspaper: “There are numerous benefits from practicing antigravity aerial yoga, most notably that it increases both muscular flexibility and joint mobility, and is particularly helpful in strengthening the core.
"It also offers muscular tension release through decompression and hydration of the vertebral discs within the spinal column.
"This allows for more space for the nerves within the spinal cord, which can ease pain and effectively help elongate the spine.
"One of the best aspects of aerial yoga, like more traditional yoga forms, is mindfulness.
"Although it is a tough workout, afterwards you feel amazing due to the release of all the so-called ‘happy hormones’.”
Mick is about to be a father for the eighth time, performs ballet, weight-training, and pilates, and goes jogging, and employs a full-time personal trainer.
