Aerial Yoga - Strength


This class is taught by:

Lucy Smith

Lucy found yoga in high school as a way to maintain flexibility with her ballet practice and dancing for theatre. When she found aerial at FlyDog in 2017, she loved the tricks in class and the benefits she found from practicing aerial along side her traditional mat practice. She jumped at the opportunity for teacher training in October 2017. She strives to create a playful class for her students. You can expect a great work and a playlist that includes Fleetwood Mac and Cat Stevens in her classes!

Lisa Haney

Lisa is a Charlottesville native who rediscovered her love for yoga both on the mat and in the air when a friend convinced her to "try" an aerial yoga class at FlyDog with Eliza Whiteman. She was immediately drawn to the balance of both fun and strength in the hammock. The incredible support of the FlyDog community inspired Lisa to complete her certification in Aerial Yoga training at FlyDog in 2017. Lisa's classes will focus on building strength and confidence while still having fun and feeling like you are playing in the air.
Focus on core stabilization, body control, whole body strength and balance and releasing tension to maximize your flexibility.
 
In this highly athletic class, you will have so much fun on our aerial hammocks that you won't even realize you are also building the power to do pull ups and handstands and yoga inversions with correct alignment and the support of the aerial silks.
 
Wherever you are in your practice, come and enjoy using the aerial silks to get stronger!
 
It is very important for students to arrive a minimum of 10 minutes before the start of class so that their hammock may be sized properly. Students who do not arrive at least five minutes before the start of class may find their spot has been given to a standby student.
 
Clothing requirements: short or long sleeves (no tank tops); no zippers or metal. No jewelry.
Physical Restrictions: Please talk to the instructor before class if you have any concerns. People who have heart disease, high blood pressure, vertigo, eye diseases (such as glaucoma), or are pregnant should consult their doctors first before trying inversions.
