Aerial Yoga Instruction
Levityis a creative journey into the sacred movement arts. In this class we will be exploring traditional circus style aerial acrobatics in a noncompetitive atmosphere, fusing elements of yoga and dance with fluidity and sensuality. Aerial gives one the opportunity to explore the relationship between grace and strength which is the essence of yoga - uniting nd yoking "Sthira" and "Sukha" (effort and ease). Aerial/ Yoga is the perfect union giving your body the opportunity to connect with the natural, organic movement of the universe - the cyclical, spiraling motion that is all around us - and to experience balance from within. As you begin to surrender in the inverted poses you will feel a deep liberation in your spine, neck, and hips. The more open and free we become in our bodies the more open and free we become in our spirits. Come experience Levity and master your own authentic movement. Unlock your body’s deepest treasures, tone your muscles, and uplift your spirit.
Beginner: “Aerial Yoga” This class utilizes the Hammock to teach the aerial basics. Students learn to combine strength, flexibility, and grace. By the end of this section you will have a good sense of what it will feels like to integrate full body awareness as you begin to lift into and explore the full essence of Levity.
Intermediate: “ Aerial strength” In this class we create a beginning sequences of tricks and explore taking Vinyasa (linking breath and movement) suspended in air. Strength and grace are a perfect union in this deeply feminine exploration of empowerment.
Shakti is the powerful feminine life force that gives shape to all that exists. It is a universal energy that lies deep within every woman waiting to be opened through dance, movement, breath, and sound. You will awaken and expand your embodiment in new ways as you are guided through your own sacred feminine expression that comes from deep within your being. By awakening this sacred feminine energy, and allowing our bodies to be our temple, we can direct this energy towards greater states of consciousness, self-love and empowerment, connection to our purposes, to create and birth our deepest hearts longing.
Full Moon Activation Ceremony
Full Moon, the time and space has been created so that we can honor our relationships with ourselves, and each other, kindred sisters, communing with the full moon energy in sacred ceremony, awakening, opening and linking our hearts, aligning with the Goddess, and sharing a journey to our deepest, fullest feminine expression. Let this be a special treat to ourselves to bask in our Feminine energy, and restore and revitalize our Spirit!
Women's Shakti Circle / Goddess Archetype Exploration

We will utilize ancient wisdom for holding sacred space to go deep within our feminine essence, our creative center, and our fullest selves.
