Kelly K

Kelly A. Kuder – (200 E-RYT) has practiced various styles of yoga over the past 14 years and never imagined the positive impact it would have on her life.

Having the ability to share the gift of yoga and aerial yoga with my students is such a blessing.” Kelly is certified with the American Council on Exercise, a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach and holds a Masters Degree in Dance.

    What is Aerial Yoga?
    Aerial yoga is one of the newest blends of yoga and aerial circus arts, utilizing a silk hammock as a prop to aid the student in surrender during traditional postures that are difficult to achieve due to minimal flexibility or strength, physical injuries and often times, emotional fear.
    Aerial Yoga is an amazing practice and fun way to change up your traditional experience with yoga on the mat, as well as a teaching yoga. Practicing Yoga in the hammock allows you to discover and unleash your hidden challenges and strengths. It balances and encourages deeper and unique stretching through a traditional Aerial Yoga Flow class.

    Yoga Nidra
    Yoga Nidra has been referred to as yogic sleep, Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious deep sleep. When this state of deep consciousness is achieved, we are better able to achieve complete relaxation. During yogic sleep, your conscious, unconscious and subconscious minds work together to meet your physical, mental and emotional needs.
    Yoga Nidra is quite different from meditation. During meditation, you remain in an awake state of consciousness as you allow unconscious and subconscious thoughts to enter your conscious mind. In yoga nidra, however, you leave the waking state and move into the deep sleep state of consciousness, yet you remain completely awake and alert through the transition. In Yoga Nidra, your body and mind are completely relaxed and quiet. Although the body and mind seem to be sleeping, your consciousness remains fully awake in the deep sleep state. In this state, your conscious mind is able to explore the deepest layers of your subconscious and unconscious minds.
    - You will experience 30 minutes of Yoga Nidra in the hammock
