Get ready to play, take flight and feel weightless! Aerial Yoga is a light hearted practice that will leave you hanging (in a good way!) and coming back for more.
Learn how to use the hammock as a prop and enjoy postures where you float suspended in space. The hammock, also known as a "silk" will be used as a unique tool in creating stabilization for standing poses, assisting in deeper stretching and allowing you to access easier inversions.
In addition to offering the same benefits as a regular yoga practice, here are a few more perks of Aerial Yoga:
- Decompression and Alignment of the Spine
- Core Strengthening and Improved Balance
- Upper body Strengthening
- Improves body and spacial awareness
- Increased blood circulation
- Flushes lymphatic system and moves stagnant blood
- Helps ease stress & anxiety
At the end of class you will have the option to do savasana (corpse pose) either in your hammock or on your mat. The aerial hammock has been referred to as womb-like during savasana, leaving you with a feeling of safety, comfort, and peace.
Yoga Nidra has been a favourite at the studio for quite some time now, however, there are so many facets of yoga Nidra that you won't ever get to explore in a 45 minute workshop. There are many layers to explore, and ways to enhance your regular Nidra practice, we just HAD to put them all together for people to experience as a series. YOU HEARD IT, we are bringing you a Yoga Nidra series with the goddess of Nidra herself, Melanie Larson.
Step away from your busy life and find refuge as you practice yoga Nidra each week in addition to learning more about why Yoga Nidra is so darn magical. You may enter this series as a novice meditator or a seasoned pro, but you will certainly leave feeling confident in your practice, having learned skills to take you through many Nidra's to come.

Gentle Flow is a less strenuous hour long practice consisting of foundational postures, put together in a conscious, "slow flow" giving more time for breath, strengthening and mindful movement. The postures are broken and proper alignment tips and substantial modifications will have a strong presence in this class. This class is warmly heated to 30 C.
This class is suitable for students simply looking for a more “tranquil” practice. All levels welcome - including beginners.
