Aerial Yoga is the art of letting go and the freedom of movement. It’s letting gravity take your practice to a deeper level. It is both safe and exciting. Your core strength will be tested as you work to balance and stabilize yourself on the silk. In addition, you will flex your mental agility as you keep alert while suspended in the air as you move your body into new and sometimes unfamiliar positions.
At Mojo Yoga we have a wide variety of classes for all skill levels.
Welcome to your hour of quiet. A time to simply sit and be on your mat. A portion of the meditation will be a guided exploration of one or more of your chakras (energy centers throughout the body) and bringing expansion and awareness to these areas. Beginners and advanced practitioners welcome. Blankets, bolsters and blocks provided for your comfort.
Simply restorative. Take a mental break from your everyday life. This is your time to recover from fatigue, recoup your spent energy and still your mind through a series of restful poses. Now close your eyes and relax.
Silk Sanctuary with Sound Bath
Levitate. Float. Retreat. Welcome to an hour of silk sanctuary where you will be enveloped in your own protective and private cocoon and suspended in time. Enter into a world of vibration as a sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls are played creating a sound bath that will nourish your nervous system. After an hour don’t be surprised if you emerge as a butterfly from your cocoon with heightened sensation, relaxation and waves of peace.
Aerial Pilates and Fitness with Robin
Take your Pilates to new heights! Fine tune your balance, increase core strength, and flexibility all while holding, standing, sitting, or lying in a silk hammock suspended from above. Perform postural inversions without neck or spine compression. Enjoy better body awareness, agility and feel empowered as you experience a new dimension to your Pilates or fitness practice.
Aerial Yoga Gentle
We drop the silk 12 inches from the floor, ensuring smooth motion and gentle flow. Consider this a mixture of Yin (massaging your joints) and Restorative (relaxing tenseness in your muscles). A gratifying class that will leave you feeling refreshed as you melt away physical and mental tension in your body.

Chair Yoga with Amelia
A beautiful way of practicing yoga without leaving your seat. A gentle practice that will focus on breathing techniques, simple flowing stretches, flexibility and relaxation with the aid of a chair. We will utilize props to ensure stability (blocks at feet, blankets for cushion, the wall for support etc.)
Evening Yin, Breathwork & Meditation (90 min.)
End your day with a beautiful Yin yoga practice to calm your mind and nervous system. This slow paced style of yoga of gently stretching the the joints and connective tissues will be accompanied with the healing sounds of crystal singing bowls allowing waves of sound to soothe and carry you into an alternative realm of experience. A portion of class will be spent in breathwork and silent meditation.
Stretch and Restore with Heather
Stretch & Restore is an all-levels class combining gentle stretches and slow movements to restore mobility and increase flexibility. The practice closes with deeply relaxing restorative poses to facilitate rest and rejuvenation. This practice is ideal if you’re looking to ease yourself into yoga, nurture injuries, or just give yourself a bit of a break with slow, mindful movement and plenty of time for breath and meditation!
As explained by one of my favorite teacher trainers, Bernie Clark, author of “The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga”: “Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body / heart / mind: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.”

Aerial Strength with Nicole
Engage your strength by using your core and arms while suspending from the aerial silk hammock. A total workout that incorporates body resistance work, this class will bring your focus to what keeps you strong day in and out, while increasing your aerial endurance, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. Aerial strength leverages gravity and your body weight and is a perfect complement to toning and stretching every muscle in your body.
