Lucy S.

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!


Lucy S. instructs the following:
  • Aerial Yoga - Strength
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
