She has one of the most coveted figures in Hollywood – and Sarah Hyland has now shared some insight into just how hard she works to get that killer body.

The actress, who over the weekend also shared a serious #bodygoals gym snap in which she dons a tiny monochrome crop top, has revealed that when it comes to exercise, she LOVES to mix it up.

The 24-year-old New Yorker, who is currently embarking on a more intense training schedule, took to Instagram last night. In the resulting snap, shared with her 2.2million followers, Sarah dons a tiny grey and neon crop-top and navy Yoga pants. 

She is suspended from the ceiling – evidently taking part in a challenging aerial silks workout. 

"Stepping out of my box and trying new fun things for myself!" she captioned the photograph, adding lightheartedly: "Gonna join the circus."

Also known as antigravity yoga, the exercise involves a mixture of the likes of yoga, ballet and Pilates – all carried out on silk hammocks. Advocates say it strengthens, lengthens and tones your physique fast.

However, in the March issue of Cosmopolitian, Ms Hyland furthermore admitted that she's a big fan of fast food. The Modern Family star even said she "would eat Taco Bell every day!" if she thought she could get away with it.

She is currently dating Dominic Sherwood, 25, an actor and model, and the pair regularly go hiking, biking and walking together around Los Angeles.

It is favoured by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, although this doesn’t surprise us to be honest, and is even used by athletes and soldiers to build muscles and recover from an injury.

But what exactly is aerial yoga or anti-gravity yoga as it is also known as?

Well, it involves swinging from a sling hammock which is hanging from the ceiling. Once in the sling, you will do a series of exercises that involve you hanging upside down by your ankles or  swinging in the hammock with your head facing the floor to name a few – basically yoga positions in a sling.

While it does seem like a strange way to exercise, the workout is apparently great for your core strength and stretching the body.

Apparently hanging upside down is great for your complexion as it helps blood flow – we might just have to follow in Gwenie’s footsteps and give this a go.
