Kaya Aerial Yoga Instructor Aimee Performs Happy Cow Face


Take your yoga practice to new heights by trying out our aerial yoga offerings.  Aerial yoga increases flexibility, decompresses the spine, facilitates lymphatic detox, and rejuvenates the spirit. We have classes to accommodate every experience and ability level and welcome beginners of all ages. Aerial yoga is also great for those recovering from injuries and chronic health conditions. The hammock takes much of your weight, allowing you to more easily reach and obtain the health benefits from more advanced yoga postures including inversions.

With intro classes offered five days a week and group classes seven days a week, you can take to flight whenever the urge strikes. All of our instructors have hundreds of hours of teaching experience and hold multiple instructor certifications in yoga, aerial yoga, Pilates, and more.

To assist our clients and members in obtaining optimal health and wellness, we also offer a variety of conditioning, aerobic, boot camp, and other aerial fitness classes. All of our conditioning classes are carefully designed to assist you on your aerial journey and help you build the core, upper body, and grip strength necessary to advance your aerial yoga or circus practice.

Whether you enjoy the controlled core strength building aspect of Pilates or the more fast-paced circuit style training of a boot camp workout, we have something to fit your needs and goals.  If your upcoming New Year’s resolution includes getting or staying in shape, be sure to register now for Alex’s new Boot Camp Series that will run from January 2 through March 31, 2016.

Our next performance and children’s groups will begin meeting in January to train and prepare for an early June performance date, so contact the studio to register today.
