Workshop Details

Aerial yoga is an evolution of a new type of yoga that uses a hammock to enhance traditional yoga asana. With the support of a soft hammock, aerial yoga allows you to explore, refine and advance your traditional asana practice, both in the air and on the ground.

Aya Aerial yoga classes focus on building strength, balance, flexibility and creating challenges that will assist with your emotional growth both on and off the mat. Through the use of inversion therapy (hanging upside down) we stimulate the lymphatic system helping to reduce toxins in the body and allow the spine to decompress and lengthen.  This 4 week course will introduce you to both restorative and dynamic aerial yoga.

WEEK 1: Dynamic – get to know your hammock while keeping your feet on the ground. An introductory class to using the hammock to enhance movement and strength. Get comfortable being upside down  while getting the full benefits of inversions. 

WEEK 2: Restorative – Lengthen, soften and allow the hammock to open your body and soften your mind. 

WEEK 3: Dynamic – Get upside down and work into the core and arm balances. 

WEEK 4: Restorative – Focus on breath, and lengthen the spine, this class will leave you feeling nourished and balanced (and maybe a little taller)

Although I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years, my “yoga journey” didn’t really start until after the birth of my first child. I was fairly unprepared for Motherhood and found that yoga was the only thing that really allowed me the space to breathe and connect with myself. 
I discovered Aerial yoga at a Yoga Festival in 2015 and the moment I lay back in that hammock I felt like I had come home. As a child I always loved hanging upside down and through aerial yoga I have found an outlet to allow my inner child to shine, while also benefiting from all that yoga has to offer.
Yoga challenges me, helps me find balance and brings me joy, both on and off the mat.
