The Unnata® Aerial Difference
Friday, November 1, 2019 at 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
In this immersion, you will be guided to unwind old physical patterns, and reset to your body’s true alignment, teaching you deeper body awareness in multi-dimensional space. Expand flexibility, increase range of motion, build strength, lengthen the spine, and relax the nervous system. Unnata Yoga classes ground as much as elevate, and balance both earth and air. When you add the hammock to your kit of other Yoga props (belt, blanket, block, etc.), you can work with the downward pull of gravity to uplift the spirit.
Open to all levels of yoga practitioners, no aerial experience required

Inversions with the Yoga Hammock
Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Unsupported inversions take many years to learn. Even somewhat simple inversions such as shoulder stand can be more challenging to practice than on first assumption. One needs to train the body and mind how to get into the inversion, how to find balance once there, how to last in the position, and how to get out of the position safely.

We’ll use the aerial hammock as a tool to train body and mind in these many aspects of inverting, so that you’ll know how to confidently practice inversions on your own, and one day you’ll be able to do perfect inversions, unsupported!

Unnata Yoga Low Hammock Rejuvenation
Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 5 PM – 7 PM
Completely supported at all times by the hammock and supplemental props, this low-hammock class will inspire you to forget the outside world and concentrate on your own relaxation and rejuvenation. You will be guided through this mostly-restorative, and at times mildly-active class of new positions mixed with some old favorites, ending with an exploration of our innermost subtle self. We will explore supported versions of reclined positions, supine positions, seated positions, twists, backbends and even standing positions.
The Unnata method teaches deeper body awareness in multi-dimensional space. And like all forms of Hatha Yoga, Unnata Yoga guides practitioners to notice the subtle movements of breath, energy and mind.
This workshop is appropriate for all experience levels, and mobility levels.
