Yoga for ALL Minds and Bodies

Come and join an early morning class where the teacher focuses on building a container for everyone to connect with their mind’s and body’s so everyone in the class has the chance to start the day on the right foot. Maggie will have a general sequence set for the day, and will adjust the class according to who shows up, and on current needs and abilities of the students in the class.

All ages, shapes, and sizes welcome! The deep value of yoga is to get in touch with yourself, this class is designed to help stay in the physical practice rather than comparing ourselves to fellow classmates. Yoga is a gift and is for everyone, we want to help you feel that.

Restorative Aerial Yoga

Restorative aerial yoga requires no training or experience in aerial yoga to participate as it is a practice that utilizes the hammock hovering as low the ground as is possible without touching once there is someone cradled inside. This practice uses additional props such as blankets, bolsters and blocks to aid the practitioner in the sensation of being fully supported. This form of practice involves a very different focus than one that has the hammock set at hip height and also varies from traditional mat restorative yoga practices since the hammock offers an opportunity for exploration of supported motion. A restorative aerial practice will consist of fewer poses (about 5 or 6 in an hour) in order to allow for more time to just ‘be’ in the pose and relax into the space that is being offered to the body. The focus here is to rest, relax and rejuvenate for the week ahead while creating space to reconnect with our bodies.

Book your session here under the Classes tab or through the Mindbody App!

This can be done at so many levels from meeting a physical need such as offering someone food or loaning a circus prop to being a listening ear and a caring heart to someone in need. We are a come as you are festival. Be yourself and know that people will receive you as you allow others to be themselves in kind.
