Unnata® Aerial Yoga Immersion Weekend
The Aerial Yoga hammock is a powerful and fun prop that informs alignment and breath, and can add a new dimension to anyone’s ground yoga practice. In this weekend intensive, you’ll experience how using the yoga hammock effectively can inform and inspire your ground practice. This weekend is appropriate for anyone steeped in a dedicated yoga practice, whether on the ground or in the air, and is specifically geared to yoga instructors and those wishing to deepen their own understanding of yoga. RYT’s can gain 9 hours of continuing education credit through YA.
Spine, Breath and Bandhas:
Using gravity to enhance and strengthen the postural and breathing muscles.
Backbending with Ease:
Backbends should not hurt, and the aerial yoga hammock can inform effective backbend alignment in many ways. Whether you love or hate backbends this topic is for you.
Arm Balances and Inversions Made Easier:
The Aerial Yoga hammock can help prevent common yoga-related injuries to the shoulder, by adding a new dimension to stabilize the joint. The aerial yoga hammock allows you to feel proper inverted alignment to improve any level of inversion and arm balance.

About Your Instructor
Jordan Anderson is a yogi and aerial acrobat, and the co-founder and director of Aerial Fit® which is Charleston, SC’s only dedicated aerial facility. She was a dedicated yoga practitioner and instructor for many years before discovering aerial, and the Unnata® Aerial Yoga method speaks to her because the way it combines yoga with the use of an aerial apparatus is so powerful. Jordan has been influenced by a variety of yoga teachers including Doug Keller for his down to earth anatomical approach, Andrey Lappa for his inclusion of the energy bodies in the practice, Dharma Mittra for his kind heart, and all of her students and teachers who continue to be her greatest inspiration. Her yoga classes are a combination of breath, movement, stillness, focus, and exploration/play. She is a firm believer that the practice of yoga (all 8 limbs of it!) can enhance anyone’s quality of life.
As someone who spends much of her life in the air, Jordan is drawn to Unnata® for the sense of grounding it provides and loves how it bleeds over into every aspect of her life. Teaching is her way to share that with others. Jordan has been teaching Unnata® since 2009 and has a passion for helping guide others along the teaching path.
