Explore Integrative Aerial Yoga! A playful, energizing practice that leaves you feeling deeply relaxed, lengthened, integrated and free. This holistic system incorporates vinyasa yoga and aerial circus conditioning with principles of functional movement and Fascial Fitness to enhance breath, movement, and balance on the mat and through life. Using a low-hanging fabric swing, IAY supports intentional and efficient movement through space, giving rise to greater kinesthetic awareness. Grounded in yoga flows that improve everyday posture and body mechanics, IAY accesses deep stabilizing muscles that allow the body to find its own organic alignment.
In this workshop we'll focus on the basics of aerial yoga. We'll build a strong and grounding foundation from which we'll explore inversions, greater height, and advance our sequences.

A vinyasa intensive with a traditional backbone. The Yoga Sutras don't get talked about too much because teachers don't want to interfere with anything that would seem religious when they teach. Yoga is not a religion, it's a compliment to whatever you believe. In this class we physically & mentally explore the 4 perfectly beautiful chapters of the Yoga Sutras of Patajanli. Meditation & sound healing will be included in this class. The Yoga Sutras came to me at one of the hardest times of my whole life. They pulled me through it like a life preserver. I vowed to share them.Kirtan Soul Revival ConcertSat Apr 18th, 7-9pm; $15adv/$20 day of
