AERIAL YOGA


This class is taught by:

Alyssa Bohen

200 YTT & AERIAL YOGA INSTRUCTOR
 
Alyssa first began the practice of yoga several years ago when her mom suggested she should try it for stress reduction. For her, yoga has become a way to unplug and become more in tune with herself. Although Alyssa loved her mat practice, she began looking for something different. When she first heard about aerial yoga, Alyssa thought it sounded fun and sure enough, it was love at first inversion! She has been practicing aerial for over three years and completed Level One Aerial Yoga Teacher Training at Transcend Wellness and Yoga. More recently, Alyssa received her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate at Stillpoint Studios. She likes to bring a fun, light-hearted approach to her classes while still focusing on proper alignment and breath. She hopes that her students will also uncover the many benefits of yoga for themselves.

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.

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.
