Aerial Yoga - Learn to fly

This hybrid class blends together the familiarity of yoga on the mat with aerial. Using the silk hammock as a prop, students will have access to their own “personal assistant” offering deeper stretching in your warriors, support in your backbends and added balance in standing poses like half-moon or dancer. This slower-paced class is ideal for yoga practitioners who are looking to deepen their mat practice through exploration of familiar poses with the aid of a fun prop as well as for students who want to begin to become more comfortable in the aerial silk and build strength for other aerial classes.  It is also a great way to learn yoga and begin a supported practice!


Recommended For:  aerial yoga students who want to build strength and play with inversions.

Restorative Aerial Yoga

This is our gentle and therapeutic version of aerial yoga. The extra support of a silk hammock allow the body to completely soften, surrender and invert effortlessly. Like classical restorative yoga, this class balances the elements of a slow-paced flow, breath work, and powerful guided meditation. However, a levitated yoga practice reaches muscle groups that cannot be accessed on the mat, providing a deeper dimension into organic exploration in each pose and enhances stretches and twists.

 

Students will finish their practice with a serene savasana, floating peacefully inside of a silk cocoon.


Recommended For: Comfortable with being off the ground, but wants a mellow aerial yoga experience. 

 

Aerial Yoga Restorative class is open to all levels of practice, although it is still HIGHLY recommended for first-time aerial yoga practitioners to attend the Aerial Yoga Basics class.
