Aerial Yoga All Levels
In this all levels class students will learn how to flow through all 7 fundamental wraps in an alignment-focused, breath-based, slow flow. Students will reap the benefits of inversions without compression in the cervical spine or compensating tension in the supporting musculature. The hammock will facilitate complete surrender in a safe and supported way, which brings about new benefits of traditional yoga postures and allows the mind to find the space to become more aware and present. This practice will allow students to feel deeply grounded with the support of the hammock in balancing postures and float and extend more effortlessly in inversions and backbends without risk of injury. It’s the perfect balance of effort and ease!
*Appropriate for those who have taken at least 1 Aerial Yoga Intro class.

Aerial Yoga Intro
This class will cover the seven fundamental wraps, specifically where to place the fabric for maximum comfort, support and compression benefits. Aerial inversions will be covered step by step and with spotting if necessary. Time spent upside down will be brief for each occurrence to build up tolerance. This class will also reinforce the benefits of feeling heaviness in the fabric so students gain proprioceptive awareness of feeling grounded while flying. All safety elements will be reinforced for beginners or those needing a refresher.
*Appropriate for all
