Aerial Yoga

Inspired by traditional yoga, pilates, dance, and acrobatics, Aerial Yoga is a relatively new form of yoga. Using a fabric hammock or yoga swing to support students, it allows them to deepen stretches and safely connect with postures they may not ordinarily be able to find on the mat.  Aerial Yoga is a challenging and fun way to relieve stress, decompress the spine, and strengthen the entire body. It is an exciting way for anyone looking to introduce fitness into their life or anyone with a curiosity for something different to complement their existing yoga practice.

Foundations

Get back to the basics. A class for both those in the early stages of yoga practice or those interested in refining the essential skills of the practice. We’ll take you through fundamental yoga postures, taking time to delve into pose alignment, breath practices, and the practice of moving and living mindfully. You’ll also learn about anatomical terms that you might hear in a yoga class, how to modify poses for your unique body, and the use of props to support your practice. All levels of flexibility, strength, and experience are welcome.
