Intro to Aerial YOGA

(90 minutes)

Aerial yoga utilizes aerial silk fabric which is tied or rigged into  a swing, or hammock configuration. This makes it a lot easier than aerial silks, because with the hammock some of the “puzzle” of aerial silks is already completed.
Aerial yoga flows through a Vinyasa yoga sequence, utilizing the hammock to deepen stretches, support our balance, and help us with inversions off the floor, and on the floor (headstand, handstand, and forearm stand are super accessible with the hammock!)

Aerial yoga can help you release a lot of fear in your body, and it’s super fun! Aerial yoga includes breath work, and a closing savasana.

The price is $45.

Partner Yoga and Beginner Acro Yoga

(90 minutes)

Partner yoga is a fun way to connect with others, and practice trust and communication. We will begin with partner meditations and gentle easy partner yoga sequences. We will also introduce some basic acro yoga movements (Lifting each other up! Standing on each other!) You do not need a partner for this workshop! We will switch partners throughout the time to maximize our connection, and learn how different body types can work together.

All fitness levels and experience levels are welcome.

The price is $45.

Magic of Intention Fire Ceremony

(75 minutes)

In this workshop we will move through the seven energy centers with visualizations and mantras to clear the way to an open heart and mind. You will then be invited to write down intentions, and something you want to let go of and eliminate from your life. Then using fire we will let go of what no longer serves us.

Next we will write what we WANT to create and invite into our existence, and send these up in fire with the intention of calling it into our lives.

Throughout this process we will use the powerful vibration of chanting, which will amplify our intentions. This practice is also deeply moving in a group setting, where the energy of others will also enhance the experience and amplify the intentions that have been set.

The price is $45.
