Dorota Preysnar instructs the following:
Aerial Yoga with Silk Hammocks
Step off your mat and learn to fly! Aerial Yoga is a powerfully therapeutic practice that combines the strength and grace of traditional asana with the ease of gravity assisted stretching, all in the comfort of silks. Whether you are new to the mat, or looking to deepen your floor practice, aerial asana will strengthen the arms and core while opening the hips and heart. Inversions have been called the fountain of youth, and they help to decompress the spine. The pressure of the fabric on the body helps to drain and circulate the lymph fluid, while opening the connective tissue.
We require that students new to the practice take at least one Aerial Yoga Level 1 introductory class as prerequisite to the drop-in, in order to become used to the silks and specialty inversions. Class size is limited to 10 participants, so register early! At least 12 hours notice is required for cancellation of reservation without additional charge-- $20 non-refundable drop-in is charged for all absences and late cancellations.
Vinyasa Flow - Beginner/Intermediate
Popular flowing style of yoga known for practicing deep breathing and increasing self-awareness, as well as fitness. Students who like moving with their breath to build heat, strength, and flexibility will favor vinyasa yoga. Expect unique sequences and a wide range of music.
