PRICING SCHEDULE

Aerial Meditation


This class is taught by:

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.

Christine Rolfe

Bio: Christine started to meditate when she was around 6 years old, staring at a Holly Hobby picture on the wall to settle her mind at night. Only decades later did she learn she was practicing Trataka, the meditative practice of gazing at an external object. Perhaps it is no surprise that Christine was naturally drawn to meditation and started practicing again as a way to calm her mind and increase mindfulness in her daily life.
As Christine continued to develop her meditation practice, she experienced even more benefits including reduced insomnia, more focus and an increased connectedness with life. She was happier. She was drawn to the practice and wanted to learn as much about meditation as possible. Christine explains “If I can meditate (with my over-active mind) anyone can!"
Christine became certified to teach the Simple, Easy, Every Day Meditation (SEED Meditation®) created by Sarah McLean. She also holds a BA in Communications and Business Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her desire is to teach meditation to individuals or groups looking for a way to improve their well-being through meditation. Her smile grows even larger when teaching people who are new to meditation as she loves the idea of spreading the practice. Christine lives in Orange County with her husband, teenage son and two furry friends, Ruka and Maya. Her interests outside of meditation include hiking, yoga, writing and traveling.
 
Teaching Style: Meditation is the practice of bringing your gentle attention to a focus again and again. The focus could be your breath, mantra, physical sensations or anything that allows you to return to the present moment in a gentle way. I teach the Simple, Easy, Every Day Meditation Method (SEED Meditation Method) which is a collection of powerful, time-tested meditation practices that can reduce stress and enhance your life. The foundation of the meditation practices I teach includes breath awareness, body awareness, silent mantra, self-inquiry and heart centered breath. My favorite techniques are focusing on the breath and body… it is simple and you always have them available for you!

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.”
 
3 things that I would put in a time capsule: My journals, one of my favorite books, and a photo of my huge family!
Meditation is the journey from activity to silence. In aerial meditation, you will securely drift just above the floor, creating a feeling of weightlessness and sending external distractions further away. By cocooning into the aerial silk hammock, you may experience therapeutic benefits such as relief from hip or back discomfort sometimes present when we meditate seated on the floor.

The aerial silk hammock will safely embrace you in postures both seated and lying on your back during this meditation practice.
