What is CircAsana Aerial Yoga?

CircAsana a fun blend of acrobatic and aerial conditioning, vinyasa yoga and restorative therapeutics. It combines traditional yoga poses, pilates and dance with the use of two main props: an aerial hammock and gravity. Yoga in the silks can increase body awareness through the use of inversions: the practitioner explores grace, flexibility and mindfulness while upside down, learning to expand the body without compressing the joints and spine. 

Aerial yoga develops sustainable strength & core while increasing flexibility of body and mind. Fear and danger can be triggers for reaction within the aerial practice.  Beyond proper placement, cueing and body awareness, CircAsana teaches fear-reduction and confidence-building techniques through the use of positive psychology and neuroscience. These are used to prepare the aerial yogi to safely execute sequences and 'drops' and teach teachers how to do the same to ensure the safety of their own students base.  A special component of CircAsana yoga is the creative exploration process which teaching future teachers to design original routines and lesson plans.
