OLD Yoga Class Descriptions
Aerial Yoga Foundations (Intro/Beginner): This class is a great practice for those new to Aerial Yoga or for those looking to fine tune the fundamentals. Aerial Yoga Foundations will help students build body awareness, confidence and familiarity with the aerial hammock at hip-height. Students will learn proper alignment and placement cues, with a focus on breaking down postures and transitions into detailed steps. In this class, you can expect to work on full inversions (getting upside down!). However, in comparison to Aerial Yoga All-Levels, this class moves at a slower pace with a focus on acclimating to a new type of movement and relationship to gravity. For those completely new to Aerial Yoga and/or inversions, we recommend taking this class a few times before entering an all-levels class. If you have any questions of concerns, you are encouraged to speak to the Instructor.
Aerial Yoga All-Levels: In this class, students will be led through a hip-height Aerial Yoga practice. This class is an active practice and will include at least 3 full inversions, with a posture focus for each class. A variety of variations will be included throughout the practice to accommodate students’ level and ability. All-levels is a playful practice with an emphasis on building strength and confidence with (and in) the hammock. If you are unsure if you are ready for All-Levels, feel free to consult with an Instructor. Regardless of your level or ability, you are always welcome to come and practice what you feel able to do! All-levels class is meant to be safe place where each student can grow in their own Aerial Yoga practice.
Energize & Visualize:30 minutes of asana practice (physical yoga postures and movements) followed by 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra (a deeply restorative state of being achieved by way of guided relaxation). The intention behind this 1 hour mid-day practice is to enliven your body, to relax your mind and to tap in to the power of your sub-conscious.
Mindful Yoga:In this lunch-time one hour class we invite students of all levels to slow down and listen to the innate wisdom of their bodies. From there we will attempt to merge mindfulness with movement while supported by conscious breath work.
Restore and Renew: This restorative practice is a luxurious way to wind down your weekend while simultaneously renewing your mind and body for the week ahead. Each class consists of 5-6 restorative poses aimed at soothing the central nervous system, relieving stress, and restoring mental clarity. Bolsters, blocks, blankets, eye-pillows, sandbags, and chairs provide the ultimate in support for your physical body as your mind settles into the Theta brain state of deep relaxation. Join us Sunday evenings and nourish yourself with the gift of self-care.
