Aerial Yoga

Find length in your body that you never knew you had!  Relax and be held by the soft, stretchy fabric as you stretch and move through traditional and non-traditional yoga poses.

The sky is the limit with Aerial Yoga!  You’ll find support, comfort and endless possibility in this practice.  We teach you how to relax into the fabric and use gravity to help you lengthen your muscles as you focus on full deep breaths.  We move fluidly through balance, flexibility and strength poses, addressing every muscle group.  The magic of Aerial Yoga also allows us to hang upside down- to invert- effortlessly and safely to achieve amazing therapeutic benefits… and did we mention how much fun it is?!
