Aerial Yoga Restorative
This is our gentle and therapeutic version of aerial yoga. The extra support of a silk hammock allows the body to completely soften, surrender, and invert effortlessly. Like classical restorative yoga, this class balances the elements of a slow-paced asana flow, pranayama, and powerful guided visualization enhancing awareness of the internal sensations present in the body. However, a levitated yoga practice reaches muscle groups that cannot be accessed on the mat, providing a deeper dimension into organic exploration in each pose while enhancing stretches and twists. Practicing while levitated also calms the nervous system and boosts the immune system.

Every Body’s Yoga
Want to give yourself a gift? Do Gentle Yoga. Gentle yoga is the best kept secret of all yoga studios. You will move at a slow, steady pace making this class highly effective for any body type, body size, or personal pace. Yoga postures (Asanas) are floor based using seated & reclined asanas and a few standing poses as the basis of every routine. If chairs are needed by some participants, they can easily be incorporated into any class. Savasana (the relaxation phase) is guaranteed to be at least 10 minutes of the practice in order to bring the body to its ultimate goal: to completely relax and to let go of “stuff”, therefore reducing anxiety and stress (cortisol) levels. Gentle yoga is not synonymous with “easy” yoga; it is simply a really good way for all body types to effectively experience the Asanas with modifications wherever necessary. Your body knows what to do. Trust it.
Gentle Yoga uses the flow between poses to cultivate physical and emotional openings. It helps maintain flexibility and strength to prevent falls or fractures. Lung capacity is improved with yoga breathing exercises, and arthritis pain is reduced by gentle stretching.Moving through this gentle flow will allow students a chance to open their bodies and understand what is happening in their body, through movement.
