Aerial Yoga & Teacher Trainings
Aerial Yoga is a practice using a suspended hammock that allows the body to release, realign and rebuild as if you were using a gentle hands on adjustment. Being barely off of the floor it allows gravity to provide decompression of the spine and other parts of the bod while it works deep into the subtle body using pressure points and inversions. Includes kids aerial & gentle aerial.
Meditation & Breath

Breathworks or Pranayama is a practice of controliing the life force of breath as it flows through your body.

Let go of the past and transform into the future. Take the step emotionally, physically and spiritually into the new you. Have you ever dreamed of a second chance? Everyday we get a second chance but sometimes we don't acknowledge it. Then every new year we like to associate it with a second chance but we wonder why our goals don't come o fruition in the year ahead and its because we often have misaligned values and keep the same patterns and beliefs. Simply put you take yourself into the new year. But what if you could shed that old self and allow the new you to be born? By clarifying who you want to be and understanding why, while creating your goals, you can let go of the things that are holding you back from stepping into the future. People are often commenting on how being in the hammock seems like it must be similar to being in the womb and appreciate the feeling of safety and security it provides. And we will get to feel that safey and security as well as nourishment as we let go into it, using the hammock in ceremony to symbolize being physically reborn. When you sign up for the workshop you get to let go of the mindsets that keep you stuck and transform them emotionally, physically and spiritually to meet your specific needs this upcoming year.

Aerial Yoga & Michaela Featured on TV
Spectra Yoga was presented by SoCal Safari for Goat Yoga and Aerial Yoga. Aerial Yoga begins after minute 3. Come in and take a class and experience it for yourself. The benefits of aerial yoga include decompression of the spine, nervous system awareness, and strengthening mental capacity and proprioception. With the hammock you can release, realign and then rebuild your body. No flexibility needed to begin but regular practice can increase flexibilty through gravity and increase pulling strength which in mat yoga is often underdevolped because of the pushing strength that is common in chaturangas/push ups. With practicing Aerial Yoga you will notice your core strengthening and your balance increasing while mat poses become easier.
