Class Descriptions

Aerial Yoga

Using a suspended fabric in the shape of a hammock, aerial vinyasa combines the flow of a yoga class with aerial acrobatics. This class both strengthens and restores muscles and is open to all levels.

Vinyasa

A physical practice that merges breath with syncronized movement. This class involves a continuous flow with a focus on alignment and both physical and mental awareness.

55+ Aerial Yoga

This class is designed to familiarize students with the building blocks of an Aerial Yoga practice and resembles an Aerial Yoga Level 1 class. In addition, this class addresses issues related to natural aging. We'll work on increasing range of motion in the shoulders, back, hips and legs while developing body awareness and comfort in transitions as well as supported inversions. In class, students will train their balance, functional mobility and strength through a combination yoga postures and modified circus conditioning exercises with the assistance of props including the aerial hammock, chairs, blocks, and blankets. This class is specifically intended for mature adults, but students recovering from injury and those looking for a mindful Aerial Yoga class are welcome to attend.

Note: This is not a gentle yoga class. Students should be able to stand unassisted and if you have a medical condition or are taking medication, please consult your medical practitioner before attending this class.

Improvisation and Imagery

UPON REQUEST

 

Description: 

           Are you satisfied with your daily practice? Do you want to develop an internal awareness to complement instructor’s guidance within your own flow? Using improvisational techniques and mental imagery, this workshop encourages you to investigate movement. We will move from isolated movement exploration through to a fully embodied yoga flow. Come explore new paths and enjoy the freedom that can be gained when listening to the natural movement of your body!

           In this class we dive into the core elements of dance, human interaction (both physical and emotional) and provide space for experimentation. We will look at the multidisciplinary nature of movement through exercises inviting students to multitask, organize, embody, and experience the present. We'll investigate movement through sensory experience, encouraging individuals to identify alternative possibilities and recognize that all choices, no matter how small, are equally significant.
