This class is required before moving on to more advanced Aerial classes. This fun class will help you establish a solid foundation in this unique system. It is designed to give you a secure and detailed understanding of Aerial Yoga fundamentals while enjoying a new perspective on the world! Aerial Yoga uses a soft fabric hammock that supports up to 350 pounds to suspend practitioners in Yoga poses. The Yoga hammock is hung close to the floor so students can use the prop to either partially or fully support the weight of the body. Many Aerial postures are designed to help create more space in the body, and a flow through traditional Yoga postures.
Take your yoga to new heights by developing your aerial practice! Although this class is simple & detailed enough that all students can handle it, it will not teach students the fundamental aspects of aerial yoga that are learned in Beginners Aerial Yoga. AY1 is a more diverse class that builds variations into the 7 fundamental wraps. Modifications and props are available to make sure all practitioners are comfortable in the class and able to relax into simple poses with ease.
Develop mastery of your aerial practice by exploring advanced postures & transitions. There is less basic instruction and more of an emphasis on challenging material where the instructor will assume you have a certain amount of familiarity with the practice. You must test out to show competency without teacher instruction in shoulder wrap with flip out, hip hang and sacrum or belt wrap inversion before taking this class. You may arrange to test out with any aerial instructor preferably at least 24 hours before the class. Please do not drop-in for class and expect to test out within 15 minutes of class start time.

Ashtanga yoga as taught in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India is a contemplative practice based on central axis mediation.
Consisting of over 50 postures, primary series is also known as Yoga Chikitsa (Yoga therapy). This flowing set sequence utilizes free breathing with sound, dristhi, and bandhas as the object of meditation to spark insight.
Ashtanga yoga is specifically designed to bring clarity to one’s true self. A glorious byproduct of consistent practice is an increase in muscular strength, proper flexibility, and deep concentration.
In short, it makes the weak strong, the stiff flexible, and brings discipline to the undisciplined. It eases suffering, increases happiness, and sparks insight.
Ashtanga yoga is based on a specific series of asanas (postures) and vinyasas (breath and movement) founded and taught by Sri Pattahbi Jois in the town of Mysore, India. Traditionally, students practice “Mysore style” where instead of leading a class, teachers oversee students’ self practice. Students practice at their own pace under the guidance of a teacher who provides adjustments and modifications.
This method of learning requires commitment and patience, but is immensely fulfilling. Students begin the practice with sun salutations and end with the finishing poses. The teacher will add poses in between as the student progresses. Typically, a Mysore room is filled with students of varying levels — from beginners to advanced practitioners. In the guided classes, students will learn the basics of the primary series.
Slow down and create space for stillness with this quiet yin practice that targets the deeper connective tissue. Yin is yoga at its coolest, deepest, quietest, stillest moments. This class will have you on the floor most of the time, using as many props needed to create as little effort while holding poses. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing joints and fascia to release. Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to stronger, more dynamic (yang) styles of yoga and exercise such as running, walking, hiking, and biking. Relax into deep stretches in this meditative yoga practice.

Yoga Nidra is exercise without movement. A meditative form of embodied practice. A systematic method for total relaxation. Yoga Nidra means “Sleep of the Yogis,” and has also been aptly called the “Zero Stress Zone” and “Relaxing into Greatness.” At the height of practice, the subconscious – where our deepest tensions are stored – becomes relaxed and open. You’ll be guided into a familiar state of mental twilight between wakefulness and sleep known to neuroscientists as “theta.” Practitioners of Yoga Nidra describe a floating feeling of luscious comfort, safety, and well-being, and have a decreased sense of linear time passing. Benefits of Yoga Nidra include:
– deep relaxation during the practice and afterwards
– cultivation of a clearer and more positive mindset during active life
– improved sleep
– alleviation of diseases associated with stress like hypertension
