Heather McAbeeAerial Yoga

Taught by: Heather McAbee
When: Thursdays 5:45-7:00 pm and Fridays 10:30-11:30 am

Prices: Drop in - $25.00, 10 class pass - $220.00, ($22 per class - expires in 3 months), 20 class pass - $400.00, ($20 per class - expires in 6 months)

Description: Class begins with a positive meditation and breathwork, grounding us for our practice.  We move with the breath through asanas with the support of the hammock, always mindful of our posture.  Each class includes optional hammock supported inversions.  Concluding the class we will relax deeply inside the hammock for savasana, allowing our body to gently float in the air.  Our aim is to be safe, have a lot of fun and to walk away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated through the whole body-mind system.

This class is open to all fitness levels and ages 18 and up. 

Safety is our number 1 priority so please abide by the following:

*Contraindications for inversions in this practice include:

**Jewelry is not allowed in class because it can snag the fabric.  Snags in the fabric will compromise the integrity of the material to support human weight.  Please remove all jewelry prior to starting class - especially rings!

***Please arrive 5-15 minutes early so we have time to set up the appropriate hammock height for you and start class on time.

****Preregistration is recommended.  We have 14 spaces available for each class. Schedule through this link here or Book Appointment on Heather's Facebook page.

What is Transformational Breath?
Transformational Breath is a self empowering breathing modality that can transform one’s life. Transformational Breath uses a dynamic and powerful breathing pattern to open the breath and oxygenate the cells. By opening and clearing the restrictions in the respiratory system we are able to bring in more breath with each inhale. More breath in our system means more oxygen and prana or life force for our cells to function more efficiently, as well as more energy and vitality. The breathing pattern we use in Transformational Breath creates a high vibration energy field; this energy field helps integrate unconscious patterns, energy blocks and past trauma. As we expand the breath, integrate and free up the stuck energy in our bodies, we open to being in deeper connection with Spirit (whatever that is for you).
