VaihAyasa is Sanskrit for “being or moving in the air, suspended in the air, sky-dwellers.” An appropriate name for this style of Aerial Yoga that combines the fun of other playful acrobatic aerial, with the grounding and alignment-centered details of more yogic aerial. Using the support of your hammock, sink into your practice, deepen stretches, find proper alignment naturally, and reap the benefits of inversions without strain on the joints of the body (deeper stretches and inversions are entirely optional). No aerial, acrobatic, dance, or yoga experience required. All are welcome!
Space is limited, so it is highly recommended to reserve your spot early! Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to class in order to have your hammock sized for your height.
If you have any recent or current injuries or experience limited mobility in any of your joints and/or spine, please email me in advance and plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to class to discuss modifications. Depending on your injury/physical limitation, you may benefit from a private session before exploring a class.

When: Tuesday / Thursday / Saturday @ 11:00AM
Class Description: Combines traditional yoga with the basic physical training of an aerial acrobat. Designed for those with no aerial experience, this practice uses a low-hanging soft fabric trapeze to support body weight for deep stretching, effortless inversions, deep core strengthening, and FUN!
Restorative Aerial Yoga
We use a soft fabric hammock that supports up to 1000 lbs. to move through a series of restorative poses that will rejuvenate and deeply relax your nervous system.
This practice has numerous physical and emotional benefits as it provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal from the inside out.
The hammock will be hung close to the floor so that students can use the prop to either partially or fully support the weight of the body. The support of the fabric will allow you to move into postures that might otherwise be unavailable due to physical limitations. Enjoy a luxurious final relaxation cocooned in your hammock.
Aerial Yoga: Intermediate
This class is for anyone interested in exploring more challenging poses, flows, and inversions in their aerial hammock. Develop whole body strength, increase flexibility and spinal alignment, and settle into a soothing savasana at the end of each session. Overall, this is a faster-paced class--students must have previous experience with aerial yoga.
Any student with the following physical limitations should consult their doctor prior to participating in our intermediate classes:
Recent surgery (shoulder, eyes, back, hips, wrists, knees, hands)
Recent head injury/history of concussion
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Join replacement (full or partial)
Diagnosed neurological conditions
Severe muscle spasms
While some clients may benefit from a private session due to physical limitations and the need for modifications, other clients may be interested in exploring an even more challenging physical practice. To do either safely, contact Lisa to schedule a private session: email@example.com
