An Elevated Experience

Sometimes you need a different perspective to open up a new world of possibility. Our classes are transformative, nurturing your mind, rejuvenating your body, and building your confidence in unexpected ways. You’re invited to experience how Flying Buddha lifts the concept of a movement and wellness studio to incredible new heights.

Aerial

Yoga

By leveraging gravity – and then defying it – you’ll elevate your mind, body, and spirit in sensational ways. 

Aerial Yoga

for Kids

It’s never too early to become a yogi! Our kids classes offer an exciting blend of mindfulness and playfulness that helps young minds discover their best selves.

Mat

Yoga

By grounding the body you’ll lift your body and refresh your mind! Our wide variety of mat classes offer styles appropriate for beginner through advanced students.

Pole

Fitness

Strengthen your body, turn up the heat aerobically, and build your confidence with this total body workout!

Our Philosophy

We believe in the intrinsic goodness of moving mindfully, and that a holistic approach to the alignment of the physical and spiritual is the key to an enriched life. That means nurturing a community of inclusiveness, compassion, and support. It also means celebrating the place where serious practice and serious fun converge. Whether you’re an expert yogi or complete beginner, you belong here.

Our Mantra

May I be filled with loving-kindness

May I be well,

May I be peaceful and at ease

May I be happy.

-Buddha

OUR PRACTICE

Securely suspended in a hammock that lets you control how deep and far you want to go while gliding, you’ll merge asanas and aerial arts for an experience that’s as exhilarating as it is empowering. From poses that improve alignment to supportive stretches that decompress your spine, Aerial Yoga takes a dynamic and safe approach to building strength, flexibility, balance, and stability.

If you’re a first-timer or an expert of the practice, you’ll unleash the confidence and tenacity to do things you didn’t realize were possible.

Aerial Yoga is an invigorating outlet for curious young minds. Using an age-appropriate balance of energizing activity and calming techniques, our kids classes help students build strength, flexibility, focus, and confidence in a safe environment. We pay special attention to fun, infusing every moment with creativity and laughter. It’s the perfect environment for a young person to develop better body awareness and find support from an encouraging community.

Classes are offered for kids ages 6 to 10 and 11 and older no previous yoga experience necessary!

    Thai massage is all about doing something that is beneficial and healing for both the person giving and receiving in the session. It teaches us that loving kindness is making sure that we are loving and kind to ourselves first. For when our glass is full we have so much more to give!

    Bring a friend, family member, or a partner for this workshop where you can safely learn how to do a few Thai massage techniques that will be healing for both the person receiving as well as the person giving each technique. You will learn about the ‘sen’ which are the energy lines that map out the body and how the energy lines guide our Thai massage movements. Also, learn about the power of intention and the importance of directing our thoughts and energy when we place our hands on another person. This intentional touch fosters deeper connection and healing and also empowers participants to learn how to use their hands as an extension of their heart.

    You will have the same partner for the whole practice and each person will take turns practicing the different Thai massage techniques. There will be CBD optional products available for purchase to compliment the practice and hot tea available afterwards and a brief discussion of each person’s experience through the workshop.

    Cost of workshop: $30 per person

    Flow & Fly’s Jessie Hill and Traci Tufano invite you to join them as they treat you to Restorative Aerial Yoga with Hot Stones. Restorative Aerial uses the hammock as the main prop to assist the body in each pose. The hammocks are suspended less than 10 inches off the ground and are used to promote a full range of movement. The slow, quiet nature of the practice allows you to relax more deeply than you might in an aerial flow. This type of relaxation can foster better sleep, ward off depression and improve your mental health. While in each pose, Jessie and Traci will add hot stones along students’ energy lines and offer Thai yoga massage assists to encourage an even deeper relaxation and overall yumminess to the experience!

    Cost of workshop: $60
    For two people:  $100

  • Saturday, 3:00- 4:30pm

    Float away with a unique and relaxing sound healing experience… in an aerial hammock!
    In this 90 minute workshop, you will have the freedom to float and sway to the womb-like
    environment of the supportive, aerial yoga hammock. You’ll learn a few restorative aerial
    yoga poses, so that you can explore the most relaxing shapes for you during the
    workshop. Poses can be grounded or flying. After taking shape with the support of the
    aerial hammock, you’ll enjoy deep vibrational, highly tuned sounds from perfect-pitch
    crystal quartz singing bowls and chimes. These powerful vibrations can balance dissonant
    frequencies in the body, bringing them to harmony and creating feelings of relaxation and
    connection. Each bowl and tone represents a different energy system or chakra, for deeply
    healing effects. Bring your intentions and be prepared to float away into bliss. You’ll leave
    feeling refreshed and relaxed in a very unique way.

    Cost of workshop: $40
