Aerial Yoga & Singing Bowl Meditation Class Monthly Class
WHAT can I expect?
Meditation is the journey from activity to silence. In aerial meditation, you will securely drift just above the floor, creating a feeling of weightlessness and sending external distractions further away. By cocooning into the aerial silk hammock, you may experience therapeutic benefits such as relief from hip or back discomfort sometimes present when we meditate seated on the floor. The aerial silk hammock will safely embrace you in postures both seated and lying on your back during this meditation practice. This 45 min class will include a guided meditation for the chakras with aromatherapy followed by a period of total silence at the end of the class for relaxation where you can remain in a restorative posture (savasana) or perhaps take time for silent meditation, reflection and breathing exercises.
This practice will relieve stress and create harmony and transformation in your entire being. Come have a peaceful, guided meditative experience in one of our beautiful silk aerial yoga hammocks.
If your not comfortable being in a hammock we have the option to be supported in a restorative pose with props on the floor.
Registration are required to hold your spot/hammock or take your chances and lay on your mat doing the meditation. All Level

Beginners Foundational Yoga
Foundational yoga postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals. The use of props will be used in class.
Restore & Renew is designed to help heal the effects of chronic stress due to our fast pace and busy lives. Classes will focus on a series of gentle floor stretches followed by restorative poses using bolsters, straps, and blankets. Special attention will be placed on alignment, and relaxation, through proper use of the breath. Restorative Yoga is used to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for balancing the body. By stimulating this system, you experience a lower heart rate and blood pressure. This also helps stimulate your immune and endocrine systems in healthy way. When you experience stress or feel overwhelmed, it is the parasympathetic nervous system that restores balance. The deep relaxation response elicited by restorative yoga also results in benefit to the internal organs.
Practicing poses using props provides a completely supportive environment for total “active relaxation”. The more your body is supported in the poses the deeper the sense of relaxation. Relaxation is a state where there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet.
Restorative poses are sustained for longer periods of time (five to fifteen minutes); allowing the nervous system to be in a state of relaxation. It’s meditative but not meditation. It’s about opening your body, not stretching your body. Approximately 6 poses are practiced within the hour. Even those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the deep release of Restorative Yoga. The use of Essential Oils are used in the class.

We will guide you through a series of static poses completely supported by props designed to help you unwind, distress, and relax. After class, you’ll feel better than when you arrived. This class is like a bubble bath with wine, candles, and soft music but on a yoga mat! Reducing stress from your life has a multitude of benefits from better sleep, lower blood pressure, and weight loss! Everyone will benefit from this class. Think of it as a sort of yoga spa experience. Or a mini vacation without having pack a thing.
A magical candle-lit slow-paced class in which poses are held long enough to face the emotions that appear. Class will end with a simple guided meditation in savanna. Yin Yoga, is a gentle, quiet, and meditative practice that teaches us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are. All poses are done on the floor so that the muscles can relax and allow the deep connective tissues surrounding the hips, thighs, and lower back to be gently stretched.
Through mindful stretching, Yin Yoga maintains the health of the connective tissue and encourages free flow of qi (energy) in the body. Poses are held for longer periods of time (generally five minutes) and awareness is brought to sensations in the body.
Beginners to Advanced Yogi's are welcome! The Yin practice is a wonderful compliment to Hatha and Vinyasa, golfers, body builders, running, cycling, tennis, swimmers, equestrians, football or basketball, or other Yang activities. Especially those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the deep release of Yin Yoga . Essential oils are used in the class. All level.
