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

Class Description 

Restore & Renew Yoga 

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. 


The perfect class for those who are injured, stressed out, anxiety, depression, and recovering from illness as in a cold or flu, and even recovering from surgery, or those who need a very gentle practice looking to regain quality of life they used to have but lost. Stressed out? Can't relax or shut it off? Can't she'd excess weight around your middle? Stress can be the reason! Then this class is for you! 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. 

All Levels.

Yin Yoga

​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.

A message from the owner... What led me to teach Yoga is what I learned about how I was taking care of myself. I have had many situations in my life which have caused severe stress and I thought that the stress wasn't affecting me. It was Yoga that made me realize that it was affecting me more than I thought and the deterioration of the state of my health. When my daughter passed away from cancer, depression took over my life. I needed to find a method of dealing with depression and long standing issues of anxiety that was different from traditional medicine. Not only did I have stress pile up, now I had to deal with depression, anxiety, and insomnia. I had practiced years before but life took me away from my practice. If you could call it that at that time. Yes, I practiced Yoga at a studio...But it wasn't a weekly commitment. Sometimes I would skip weeks..Yeah ok, months! But, this time around after my Dr. suggested I get back into it, my yoga practice and I found that it was helpful in dealing with my depression and anxiety, and a lifelong issue of insomnia as well. I noticed immediately a sense of peace and tranquility. Years back when I did practice, it wasn't the same..I think I was trying too hard and competing with my self and others in the class. Trying to keep up! But I what I did do was push my self to opening old injuries. The biggest of a long standing back issue of disc issues and my Morton's' Neuroma in both feet. So If you think that you can't do yoga! Think again....I had a very bad back problem and still deal with my Morton's Neuroma every day....Effected my balance on many levels...But if I hadn't gotten back to yoga when I did...the outcome would be worse. I am so thankful for my practice of Yoga and it saved my lfe! So getting back to my story here, The very first I noticed, I was able to cope and handle stress so much better. I started to listen to my body and my needs, not what everybody was doing in the class. Even though I was following along with the teacher. I wasn't going off and doing my thing....That's I when I noticed that my strength, flexibility, and concentration were beginning to improve. I was regaining my flexibility that I had in my earlier years. As I continued practicing Yoga again on a consistent weekly bases, I realized I was healing on so many levels with no medications at all. My back issue completely healed. That is when I knew then, at my age I was reversing health issues without meds! I wanted to help others help heal themselves. I became aware of how helpful Yoga is in dealing with certain illnesses. It truly is about the mind, body connection. It changed my life! I hope after reading my story it will change your too! Here are a few examples of the types of classes and why they work. For golfers, core strength, flexibility and balance are required to play consistently. All three diminish over time. As golfers age they lose their flexibly, have back issues, and their balance isn't as dependable. Golfers, just like Yogis, work in 3 planes of motion. There are no programs in Lexington specifically designed to help golfers improve their flexibility, balance, and core strength. Let's talk about our backs!!! Many people experience back care from time to time, whether this pain is severe and chronic or mild and short lived, it often causes misery and curtails everyday activities. The Yoga for Back Care class helps alleviate the symptoms and improve your condition so you can get more enjoyment out of living. Then there is cancer on the rise, I am currently working on my certification with Yoga for Cancer at Kripalu's Center for Yoga & Health with Tari Prinster. This class is the other main reason for opening this Yoga studio. This class is coming from my heart. This class is for the patients, survivors and the caregivers of this disease. Come join me and see what is possible with your life; learn how to breathe, stretch, strengthen, relax, restore, and bring a more peace to your world. No, I am not a thin, young yogi, but a yogi with past injuries, pre-yoga injuries, but I am passionate about helping others dealing with pain, stiffness and other issues in the body and can relate with what going on in your body. Let me guide and assist you with the poses in a safe non-judgmental atmosphere. My goal is when you are on your mat, you feel as if you are on an island, with no one to compete with or push you to do more; being your unique self as it was intended to be, just you and the present moment. Find out how and why, come join me!! This Studio is dedicated to my daughter, Nicole L. Anderson who passed away in 2010 from cancer.
