Andrea is a relative newcomer to yoga but fell in love instantly. The emphasis on encouraging personal growth as well as building community has enriched her life in ways that words cannot adequately express. She completed her first teacher training in 2017 and hasn't looked back. Andrea has her FlyDog Yoga Barre as well as FlyDog Yoga Aerial level 1 & 2 certifications. With a background in sports medicine, she particularly enjoys the balance between strength and flexibility and structure and playfulness that these classes provide.
Andrea J. 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.
