Aerial Yoga* (register 4hrs before)


This class is taught by:

Kylie Swenson

Bio: Kylie found yoga when she was studying journalism at U.C. Berkeley. She not only fell in love with the physical artistry of the practice, but with the mental freedom of a good savasana. Wanting to learn more behind yogic philosophy, she studied Buddhism and meditation at Berkeley while deepening her own practice. After graduating, she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in Huntington Beach and began teaching various styles of power yoga including sculpt and advanced vinyasa flow. Shortly after, she fell into with what she thought was her antithesis: restorative yoga. She used to say, “Who wants to sit there and stretch for an hour? If I have an hour, I’m going to burn calories.” She realized that her attitude was the very reason she needed a calming, centering practice and discovered the magic of true stillness. Later, she combined her love for the ocean with her love for yoga by teaching paddle board yoga in Santa Barbara. Next, she took to the sky as an aerial yogi and completed her Aerial Teacher Training through both Trilogy Sanctuary and Spectra’s School for Yoga. She felt aerial to be like medicine for her back pain associated with a spinal fusion surgery and loved feeling like a bird in the silk. When she’s off the mat, you can find her writing, coming up with ideas and thinking about stories as a student in the Writing for the Screen and Television M.F.A. program at USC’s School for Cinematic Arts. She compares writing to yoga. “They’re really the same thing. In writing, we tell stories through words on paper. In yoga, we tell them through our bodies.”
 
Teaching Style: Kylie sets an intention at the beginning of each class: “I want my students to leave feeling accomplished, centered, and free.”

Michaela Drageset

Bio: Michaela is a passionate, yoga teacher and alternative health practitioner who works with different types of yoga, meditation and trance-work to help people accomplish changes in their life in a profound way. As an instructor, she continues to learn and grow in all things yoga so she can bring it to her students. Her introduction to natural healing arts started when Michaela was growing up on the island of Maui with surfers, yogis, painters and healers all around her but Michaela wandered from there. Michaela continued to practice meditation and movement arts at different points throughout her life, and as Michaela moved into adulthood, she found yoga and breathwork again where she felt at home and wanted to teach it, but life had other plans for her including four beautiful children. However, when the time was right, almost eight years after she started her family, she studied intensively with Doug Swenson attending Sadhana Yoga Chi, which is foundationally Astanga. Michaela received her 500 Hr Certification with him in 2013 and taught ever since and is now and E-RYT500 and Yoga Alliance Certified Education Provider. With her love of yoga as a cornerstone, she continued to expand her knowledge with TYS Aerial Yoga I, II, III, and Gentle Aerial Yoga; Unnata Aerial Yoga I, II; Treat While You Train, a Yoga Tune-Up Format, and Yoga For First Responders, a Trauma Informed Yoga. As Michaela aims to bring you an informed practice she continues to learn through Loyola Marymount's Yoga Philosophy Program so there is always something new to learn from her. But she hasn't stopped there; she has studied over 200 hours of in-depth trance-work with the San Diego Hypnosis Institute with David Snyder and is currently working through 700 Hours with Hypnotist Practitioners Training Institute where she continues in personal client work with the subconscious mind. With everything that she has learned, her purpose in guiding people has become about teaching people compassion to love themselves in an integrated way that supports their goals in life while finding balance and strength in every aspect. She aims to make hearts a little lighter and bring joy to the world, to be an Elevation Through Inspiration.

 

Teaching Style: Graceful Movement, Alignment-focused combined with Inner Wisdom

Karen Clark

Bio: I teach yoga because I believe in it’s ability to heal our minds and bodies after experiencing it for myself. Prior to trying yoga I had a regular fitness routine that included ballet dancing, Pilates, aerobic classes and light strength training. Even though I was active I found myself spending a lot of time visiting my massage therapist and chiropractor to repair imbalances in my physiology. I began looking for a more effective way to restore harmony in my body and tried my first yoga class at age 40. I started noticing improvements in my flexibility and functionality with yoga. Shortly after I began a regular yoga practice I had some difficult life events that really tested my emotional wellness too. I craved the peace that I found each time I went to yoga, and found it was helping my mind as much as my body. That grew into a real love for it and a spark to share my love with others by becoming a certified instructor.

I teach Hatha / Vinyasa yoga and Aerial Yoga. I love the lighthearted fun of the hammock classes and discovering new ways of using the hammock for strengthening, stretching, restoring and translating yoga poses in new dimensions.

 

Teaching Style: Encouraging, friendly, educational. I am very focused on teaching alignment and breath so my students find stability and space in their postures first, and then start exploring strength and depth of the pose.

 

3 things I would put in a time capsule: A fuzzy warm sweater, lip gloss, photo of my husband, son & dogs.

Level: All levels
Temperature: Room Temperature
Description: Aerial Yoga is a unique experience of yoga asana practiced on the mat combined with asanas practiced in a suspended hammock. Using the aid of gravity, the hammock is an effective tool for realignment of the body as it acts like a hands on adjustment. The way in which the hammock guides the body into better alignment is greatly useful when translating the poses to the mat. The hammock is suspended about waist height off the ground and the instructor will guide students in and out of the hammock mindfully and safely. Aerial Yoga is intended to assist students to relax their mind and body, release tension, and rebuild proper alignment.
