Description: A class to get acquainted with the aerial silk apparatus! Like a ‘first date’ with aerial yoga, students will be gradually taught how to use the silk hammock for expressing traditional yoga poses in unconventional new dimensions. Stretching techniques for shoulders, hips and hamstrings using the silk allows students to explore a deeper range of motion, connect to core stabilizing muscle groups. The aerial yoga teacher will teach students how to access inversions without any pressure on the head or neck while allowing decompression of the spine. Backbends such as half or full bow using full support of the silk are introduced. Experience Savasana in a completely new way, enveloped and safely supported by the silk hammock.
Aerial yoga is safe for most students who can do inversions (no history of glaucoma, high blood pressure, stroke). Expectant mama’s are welcome to do aerial yoga with their doctor’s permission. It is recommended to wear a top that covers your underarms and long pants or leggings for both men & women.

Description: Meditation is a powerful tool you can use to shift your energy and tune into your true essence. You'll gain clarity and a sense of calming peace that results in happiness. In this class, you are taught techniques to calm and quiet the incessant chatter of the mind and re-direct your energy to a place of stillness. The instructor will allow time for questions, discussion, and mentorship to help students hone their practice. Meditation can change your life as it helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It is practiced in a cool room and is highly recommended for all levels. This class is a combo class with a light asana practice before the meditation.

Description: Children deserve to have a spiritual and loving community like the adults. Kids get to know themselves through discussions and self awareness techniques such as yoga. In this class just for kids, interactive and fun games are used to teach yoga postures and breathing exercises. As a result, children channel their surplus energy to strengthen their bodies and minds. Meditation is also introduced to help them learn how to relax, focus, and develop self awareness. Children leave feeling accomplished and happy. Kids Yoga is a special class designed for children between the ages of 5-11.
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.
