Description: Level 1.5 yoga is an instructional and confidence building class. All great things must rely on a sound foundation. This class focuses heavily on correct postural alignment and developing appropriate yogic breathing. Fundamental poses that are common to many classes such as Downward Facing Dog and Warrior Poses will be broken down for the students, and modifications will be given if needed. Building a strong yoga foundation is crucial in a student’s success on the mat as their yoga journey blossoms. Level 1.5 yoga is a class for beginners and those working towards building upon a yoga foundation. Options will be given to students to advance their practice working towards Level 2 poses.
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: Boost your muscles and uplift your soul in a Yoga Lift class. This class unites the high energy of light weight lifting and the mindful alignment of yoga. Light to heavy weights are provided to each student to use during class to add challenge and help strengthen muscles. This is a great class to improve your fitness level and cardiovascular endurance. The spirit of the class will uplift, strengthen, detoxify, and encourage endorphin release. This class is practiced in a hot room, so please bring a towel, water, and wear moisture wicking clothes.
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.
