COVID Update

At this time we offer online classes via zoom, in-studio classes, special workshops, and private classes. You must register online, no walk-ins please. 

Please note, we follow Montgomery County for the latest COVID news and information. In 2020 we installed multiple UV-C lighting throughout our HVAC system to help purify the air and we are practicing strict cleaning and sanitation of common areas and equipment. For sanitation purposes we offer hammock rentals. Hammock kits are also available for those who want their own hammock or to practice from home.

OUR PRACTICE

Aerial Yoga has you securely suspended in a hammock that lets you control how deep and far you want to go while gliding, you’ll merge asanas and breath 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 new to aerial yoga please see our FAQs on how to get started.

The bungee apparatus is a new type of aerial fitness. This method is a high intensity, low impact workout on your joints that is a ton of fun! This apparatus requires a pack of bungee cords and a harness worn around the hips and waist to support a person while they move their body into various shapes and practice creative movements from leaping, bouncing, to lunges, push-ups, squats, handstands, jumps, etc. This cardiovascular workout will build coordination, strength, endurance and while toning your body!

Use the hammock/lyra to perform flips, tricks, and dance routines. Aerial arts is an experience that’s as exhilarating as it is empowering. 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.

If you’re new to aerial arts please see our FAQs on how to get started.

    “Unless we address our total well-being…we are headed for global disaster” ……Deepak Chopra 

    Love More. Have less pain. That’s what we want for ourselves and the world. It can feel elusive without the right tools and community.

    Our daily lives can be filled with toxic energies that bring us down without our even being aware. 

    Through the repetition of an unconscious life, this dysfunction becomes the new norm. Then we pass it on to our families.

    We can break out of that trap by using leading-edge techniques like Emotional Freedom Techniques, aka Tapping! 

    Experienced certified EFT practitioner Scott Fox will guide you as you gain first hand knowledge of this powerful body-mind-spirit practice.

    You can expect to experience:

    • Acceleration of desired thoughts and behavior as limiting beliefs get identified and removed. 
    • A real EFT session where we will identify and clear stressors holding us back as individuals and as a group.
    • Scott’s client-success-stories over the past 12 years and how you can enjoy similar breakthroughs
    • An understanding of how to use EFT for yourself and with your family and friends to live with more satisfaction and less emotional pain.
    • The science of EFT and why the US government approved in for treatment of veterans with PTSD
    • The quantum surrogate-tapping process to affect positive change in our world.

    EFT is safe for all ages. It’s also the most clinically studied segment of energy psychology and has been shown to outperform traditional psychology methods like cognitive behavioral therapy (Journal of Evidence Based Integrative Medicine 2019)

    Come join us as we have fun in a safe healing environment and take one more step forward to become that change we want to see in the world.

    Cost of workshop: $65

  • Sunday, 2:30pm-4pm

    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. 

    To tantalize your senses even further you may want to check out our weighted eye pillows.

    Space is limited, please sign up in advance to save your space.
