Jaclyn began her yoga journey in 2014 as a way to combat chronic pain, but became fully dedicated to her practice in the spring of 2016 when she started taking classes at FlyDog. She will graduate from UVA in December 2017 with dual BA degrees in Psychology and Classics. Jaclyn earned her aerial yoga certification with FlyDog in March of 2017. She will complete her 200-hr Power Vinyasa training with FlyDog in March of 2018. Her classes are guided by the mindset that yoga is a way to increase bodily awareness, explore movement through mindfulness and play, and center yourself in the frenzy of everyday life.
Jaclyn L. instructs the following:
Aerial Yoga - Level 1
Aerial Yoga Basics class is designed for students who have had little or no experience with aerial yoga and is a prerequisite for attending any other Aerial Yoga class. We will focus on developing the fundamental skills that will help you take a regular class. The skills we will cover include but are not limited to: learning how to handle the hammock, alignment, safe entry on and off equipment, introduction to basic inversions and foot locks, developing upper body and core strength, alignment and breathing.
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.
No yoga mats required.
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.
