“COME FLY WITH US, AND DISCOVER HOW AMAZING YOUR BODY CAN FEEL WITH AERIAL YOGA! AT FIRST YOU MAY THINK IT’S ABOUT ACROBATICS…
But it’s really about suspended bodywork and freeing the fascia. Floatyoga is a combination of traditional yoga poses, pilates, and dance with the use of a suspended hammock. Our adaptation of aerial yoga helps you defy gravity, and allows you to perform various yoga poses that may be difficult to do on the ground, but are much easier in mid-air. Over time though, you’ll actually begin to free up stuck spots in the body, allowing you to move much more easily. It’s not just great for your body though, as the soothing feeling of drifting into la-la land in your own personal cacoon is pretty awesome for your brain too!
Our cozy and beautiful little studio accomodates up to six students at one time, so personal attention is a guarantee. Our instuctor, Lia, is very knowledgable, warm, and totally dedicated to ensuring that your experience is wonderful.
Currently classes are offered on MONDAYS from 5:30pm-6:30pm (Check Availability due To COVID restrictions)
Min 4 students, Max 6

“Where Do I Go?”
- Arrive 10 mins early, and park at the studio entrance on the side. Once class is started, the studio door may be locked to prevent disruption to other students. Please remove your shoes at the door, and walk them over to the shoe cubby. Latecomers will need to enter through the front of the building.
What Do I Bring To Class?
- Wear a shirt with short or long sleeves. No tank tops or halters are permitted.
- Yoga socks with grippy bottoms are absolutely required.
- No jewelry, watches, hair clips, earrings, or anything else that may potentially snag our beautiful hammocks.
- We do provide yoga mats, but ask that you clean them when you are done (cleaner is provided).
Are There Any Other Limitations?
- You must be 18 years of age and older.
- Please turn your cellphones OFF just before class begins.
- Plan on practicing on an empty stomach, at least 2 hours post meal is best.
- As a courtesy to yourself and others, please do not attend class if you are sick, or have active coughing or sneezing even due to allergy (control your symptoms if you know you are allergic and do not have any viruses).

Priority will be given to those who make a monthly commitment through their membership fee. They are in essence, “owning” a space for the month. If a participant cannot make it, there is a drop-in fee of $35. However, with only four to six spaces, one could be taking a chance that a hammock will be available, so reserve for the month when possible!
How Can I Attend AERIAL YOGA While COVID19 Restrictions Are Still In Place? How Can I Feel Safe With Group Participation?
1. The Inspire Studio Is Kept Spicky-Spacky Clean
Doorknobs, chairs, surfaces, etc. are all wiped hourly with Clorox. The floor is vacuumed daily, a HEPA filter runs constantly during business hours, all participants must have a mask (*although during practice it is optional), temperatures can be checked, Practices are limited to four people max and will offer significant spacing between yoginis, purell is available for all participants, and all hammocks will be washed between uses. That being said, our very best protection is being asymptomatic (no sneezing/coughing), wearing masks, and keeping the group small and consistent.
2. Would I Even Want to Take a Chance? What Are The Benefits Vs. Risks?
Only you can make that decision for yourself and for those around you that may be at a higher risk of death or debilitation from COVID19. However, the risks are kept to a minimum and may be even less than a trip to the grocery store. This crisis has presented a very high level of stress and a feeling of disconnection for many that carry other inherent risks. Touch, bodywork, yoga, and meditation are absolutely healing and can play a vital role in self-care. Recently, two hairdressers who were not only COVID19 positive, but who were also symptomatic, cut around 140 people’s hair. They wore masks, and followed sanitary procedures. Not a single client reported infection. Only you can decide what risks you are willing to assume for yourself and for your loved one.
3. Every Effort Will Be Made To Keep Your Practice Safe, and If It Becomes Potentially Unsafe, We'll Nix It Immediately.
Aerial Yoga is a beautiful combination of Gentle but Strengthening Yoga Asanas, Fascia-opening Suspensions, and Deep Meditation.
If you or your loved ones are at a risk level that you are comfortable with, this practice can be powerfully healing and life-affirming for you as we pass through this difficult time for our Nation and our World. Practicing yoga strengthens the immune system and empowers the spirit.
NOTE: Although this practice offers limited space, I would love for you to give it a try! A drop-in fee is available for you to experience your first YOThai Practice, without committing to the monthly membership.
