Breathing in I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.
Thich Nhat Hanh
A full-body, strength-building and body-stretching class combining yoga mindfulness principles, standing yoga postures, and aerial suspension training. Classes include breath work, meditation, and use of hammock-like swings in a one-hour guided format. This class also adds the use of suspended multi-height grips to allow bodyweight strength training and other supported options.Class sizes are limited to 6 participants so pre-registration is recommended.
These classes are not being held at this time:
This class is formatted so that at least half of the class is conducted with suspended swings near the floor so that the body is grounded while allowing the gentle stretching effect of suspended support. Swings are raised later in the class to allow focused stretching of shoulders, legs and hips, and opportunity for inversions (full- or partially- supported). Like an on-the-mat Restorative or Yin Yoga class, postures are often held for multiple minutes, often using additional props for comfort and alignment, and there is a relaxing ambiance of poetry, music, and letting go. Class sizes are limited to 6 participants so pre-registration is recommended.
This class has similarities to a traditional on-the-mat slow flow yoga class, except swings are used to provide support and allow further exploration of traditional yoga poses. Suspended swings are used to provide support for traditional postures, most often with feet on-the-ground, as well as to provide support for inversions, full-body stretches, and relaxed lying-down positions. Classes are limited to 6 students. Class sizes are limited to 6 participants so pre-registration is recommended.
