Fun 'Finding your Inner Beast'

Instructor Evan on Straps

Utilizing both traditional yoga poses and the skills of an aerialist this class takes your body through a safe exploration of flexibility and strength. Made of the same fabric as aerial silks the sling, or 'aerial hammock' is suspended waist high over the mat. Working within each students ability we open the heart, rejuvenate the spirit and find relaxation in poses that may not be possible without the support of the fabric. More advanced yogis may find the deep stretching a challenge while those wanting a more gentle practice can find deep relaxation inside the fabric. This class is particularly well suited for beginners or those with physical limitations.
