AERIAL YOGA


This class is taught by:

Tori Bodin

Aerial Yoga Instructor
 
Tori decided to try Aerial yoga on a whim in 2014 shortly after PurEnergy studios opened. By the end of her first class she was hooked and became a regular "frequent flyer" from then on. In the Summer of 2016 Tori decided that teaching was the next logical step to her Aerial Yogi path. During her training Tori realized that Aerial was much more then just a fun hobby; Teaching and helping others advance their practice evolved aerial into a passion.

Tori has been local to the area her entire life living in Malvern and attending Immaculata University. If she isn't "monkeying" around in her hammock you may run into her at one of the many mat classes. She also enjoys cooking; working on cars,finding new and fun ways to work out; and cheering on her beloved Philadelphia Flyers.

Bob Adams

AERIAL YOGA LEVEL I & LEVEL II CERTIFIED

 

Bob first came to his yoga mat in 2007, to regain some of the flexibility that he had lost over the years. He learned that yoga is much more, with movement and breath providing many other benefits, including the ability to de-stress and find a deeper peace of mind. Bob took his first aerial yoga class in August 2012, and was immediately hooked. "Aerial yoga makes me feel like a kid again. It's a great workout, and it is so much fun that time flies by so fast and you barely know you are working out." Bob completed Level One and Level Two Aerial Yoga Teacher Training at Transcend Wellness and Yoga in 2013. He tries to make each class challenging and fun for his students, allowing them to grow their practice and build self-confidence, all while having a great time.

In the corporate world, Bob has worked for the same IT company for 39 years. He also enjoys cooking, is an avid runner, and a workout junkie. Bob has been married for 35 years, with 2 children and 3 granddaughters.

Kristin H Hernandez

"Kristin knew that aerial yoga would be the practice for her before ever getting into the hammock. She discovered it on a morning television show, but it wasn't until it was finally offered in our area that she is now able to make it a part of her daily life. She practices and trained at Transcend Wellness and Yoga and hopes that she can bring the love and passion of aerial yoga to everyone ready to give it a try! "
We believe you can fly! 
Aerial Yoga uses a soft fabric hammock to allow the student to get deeper into traditional yoga poses or assist with poses, such as inversions, that otherwise may take years to accomplish. The body is fully or partially supported to assist or gain strength in stabilizing muscles that normally would not be challenged as much. The core is deeply challenged allow the body to move in space. Deep tissue massage is one of the many benefits of the hanging poses in areas of the body that hold onto tension, such as hips & shoulders. Benefits of inversions in a pose like sacrum wrap, include traction & decompression of the spine & increased circulation to the brain.
