New Classes are in red.


Aerial Yoga: Must sign up ahead of time for Saturday Aerial. The Sanskrit word for Aerial Yoga is VaihAyasa, which means moving or suspending in the air. VaihAyasa uses a soft fabric hammock that allows the student to deeply relax into proper alignment without strain to the joints. Using the fabric to assist with inversion allows the spine and neck to decompress. The weight of your body supported by the fabric creates space in the neck and spine. Stretching is easier and benefits the connective tissue, the fabric is a wonderful prop that allows deep stretching, strengthening and releasing.

Bardo Dance: A conscious dance, sometimes energetic, sometimes poignant, that brings an awareness of the chakra system to light while gently connecting to places of love and gratitude. It is danced with a spirit of fun and lightness, not taking itself too seriously. Nina has presented Bardo Dance numerous times at the Omega Institute over the years as one of their Core Faculty Dance Instructors.
