Andrea J.

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 2
  • So you are already comfortable with your hammock, basic aerial flow and basic inversions – then this class is for you!
     
    With less time focused on introductions and instruction on our basic flow, we can spend more time exploring deeper inversions, challenging transitions, and more advanced aerial yoga poses!
     
    Pre-Requisites: You must have attended 2 Aerial Yoga – Level 1classes here at FlyDog Yoga before you can join the advanced class.
     
    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.

  • Aerial Yoga - Restorative
  • The perfect class to unwind and renew passion in your practice and daily life. Restorative aerial yoga is a wonderful introduction to anyone new to the art of aerial yoga practice, but is also an incredible opportunity for anyone seeking deep release and relaxation. Unlike a regular aerial class that places the hammock about hip height, restorative aerials places the hammock less than12 inches off the ground, allowing practitioners to use the floor and low hammock for greater support and deeper relief of tension in key areas, such as the hips, shoulders, and low back. This innovative practice is intentionally designed with a very slow flow, consisting of 4-6 poses held in extremely supported postures for longer holds. The extended time per posture allow the instructor to personalize the practice to each student, assisting them in use of the props, adjustment of body position, and gentle massage to encourage total relaxation Aside from the swing, blocks and bolsters are used to increase the ability of students to find gradual opening without strain. The class is structured to offer guided meditation and soft breathing techniques that will both boost the immune system and quiet the nervous system to reduce stress in the body, mind, and spirit.
