AIReal Yoga is REAL yoga, in the air. Use a specialized hammock as a primary prop to enhance and elevate a traditional hatha (non flow) practice. This is NOT a circus class! Instead of doing tricks, this class guides students through various postures with an emphasis on body alignment and mindful breathing. No athletic/gymnastic/etc background needed.
AIReal Yoga is suitable for newcomers as well as more experienced practitioners. This class will include exercises and stretches for arms, legs, back, and hips, and is finished with an inversion before savasana (corpse pose) in the air. Participants are always welcome to return to the earth to ground themselves in the case of dizziness or fatigue. Bring your own mat or borrow one of ours at no additional cost.
All listed class start times include a 15 minute grace period to allow for hammock adjustments, questions, and to let everyone get in the door in time. For example, a class with a listed start time of 7:00 has an actual start time of 7:15. If everyone is ready to start before 7:15, then that’s more time for yoga!
Dress as you would for a “regular” yoga class done on the ground. Shirts with sleeves that cover the armpits are encouraged, but not required. Certain pieces of jewelry, such as large earrings, bracelets, or watch bands, may need to be removed to prevent snagging on the fabric.
Class sizes are kept very small to ensure that everyone receives plenty of instructor attention. Because of the limited space available in each class, online preregistration is required for all classes. If space is leftover in a class we may be able to accept walk-ins, but we cannot guarantee availability. In an effort to prevent no-shows and let everyone have the opportunity to take classes who so desires, we are currently requiring that preregistrations include payment at the time of sign up.
This class uses Tier 1 pricing: $15 drop ins, $55 for 4 classes, or $100 for 8 classes. Class credits can be used for any Tier 1 class.
