Outdoor Aerial Yoga Starts in June!

So we did these outdoor aerial classes a while back, and it was tons of fun so we decided to do them again.  This time, instead of traveling to outdoor events and festivals, we’re bringing it to our own town and into your phones.  So hopefully we can share this more consistently while creating a safe, fun, healing environment to practice aerial yoga in.  Outdoors.  No walls, no ceiling, just earth above and sky below.  Yes, you read that write right.  We get upside down to heal our bodies and reign in our minds.  The wind reminds us to breathe as the sun shines down on our feet. Perception is constantly challenged as we practice asanas using the support of our hammocks.  Creating space in the body for healing, wellness, and vitality.  Creating space in the mind for clarity, calmness, and possibility.  Join us in person or Livestream from home.  June 7th & 14th – 9am and 10:30am.  (We are limited to 6 in-person spots, so you must reserve your hammock in advance if joining us at the park).  Happy flying yogis! Michele will lead you through a unique progression of poses using an aerial yoga hammock. Using gravity to our advantage allows for much deeper stretches, full back extension and muscle strenghtening in a fun, secure environment. The program is structured in a progression format, making it appropriate for all levels. No need to feel intimidated, you are in a comfortable and caring environment with an instructor who wants nothing more than to help you succeed. 

The location of our Monday Outdoor Aerial Yoga classes are hosted at Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park located at 6656 S Atlantic Ave.  New Smyrna Beach, FL 32169 United States. They are weather dependent so be sure to “like” Flying Beach Yoga on Facebook for weather updates.

Mary McLeod Bethune Beach Park is a venue that also offers beach access, bathrooms, playground and fishing dock. Basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts are available to play on as well as a kayak launch. There is fun for the whole family at this beautiful park.

If you cannot join us in-person, there is a Zoom Livestream option as well! Take the classes from the comfort of your own home hammock! You will need an aerial yoga hammock installed at home to practice with us from home. If you don’t have one yet, click this link to view our online selection of Aerial Yoga Hammocks and order yours today! To view all our Zoom Livestream offerings, click on the links below.

Aerial Yoga Fun

Playing… simply playing. Creating play in our lives cultivates an energy that puts me in tune with my inner child. This is a path to experience bliss. So I practice. What am I practicing? Playing. When I play for the sake of only playing, I am no longer “doing”, rather am simply “being” in the energy of playfulness that is created within. Now more than ever, it is important to continue cultivating joy how and when we can. Play is one way. This was recorded after an aerial yoga class so I was already experiencing a calm mind and steady breath. So play came easy. The aerial hammock is my favorite yoga prop. It supports me in ways I never knew I could be, teaches me to be strong and flexible in any situation or position, and has a natural way of inviting me directly into play. When we’re bound up in our problems, play may seem like an impossible task and one we don’t have time for. I resolved long ago not to wait until a later day to play, for it will never be tomorrow. We only have today, therefore, I practice play. It’s funny how we can get very bound up in thought energy, to get stuck in a loop of repetition, unable to break the thought pattern. What I’ve learned over my 44 years, is that thought cannot be cured with more thought. It’s impossible. I have to have a practice of moving and breathing which naturally centers my focus internally to the true self that I am. The stillness beneath all the waves of fluctuations that come and go through life. I am more than just my thoughts. We all are. We can make up all kinds of stories that will keep us stuck in our mind, or we can choose to let it all go in favor of internal peace. ☮️

How? Practice. 💦

What? Yoga. 🧘🏻‍♀️

Why? Yoga is the practice of taking control of your mind. All of it.

When? Now.

Where? In your house 🏡 or on the moon 🌙 the “where” of this is up to you!

Play. If you don’t know how, ask any child in your life to play anything with you. They will teach you how to connect to that joy within that is not attached to the “goal of doing” anything. And it’s the greatest lesson. Leading directly to joy. For joy is not connected to anything outside of us. Joy is cultivated within. Whatever you do today yogis, do it with joy, because you are worth it ❣️If you want to practice play on a yoga hammock with me, I’ll be teaching Aerial Yoga at Kula Yoga Studio- New Smyrna Beach high noon Thursdays. ✌️💜🕉

Aerial Yin with Live Music 🎶!

http://Aerial Yin Yoga with Live Music at Kula Yoga

We are so excited to be bringing back Aerial Yin with Live Music to Kula Yoga New Smyrna Beach! The event is 2/21/21 4-6pm. Space is very limited so reserve your aerial hammock today!

Aerial Yin uses the hammock to set our bodies up in postures that stretch the body’s connective tissue, particularly around the joints, which means being in the asana for several minutes to get the desired effect. Yoga asanas are designed to touch each part of the body in order to take care of it. Yin tissues like tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues need slow, gentle pressure delivered steadily in stillness for longer periods. This is all guided by Jeff and Michele Fedora, ERYT200-RYT500s, YACEPs with amazing live music performed by Jeff and guided meditations by Michele. This is a 2 hour practice that will open you up physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, bringing us all to our centers. We are grateful and joyful to bring this practice to you once again. Namaste yogis!

Aerial Livestream Yoga starts Tuesday!

Hey aerial yogis!  I’ve been missing seeing you all during this pandemic. And I know so many of you have aerial hammocks at home and are looking for ways to have a practice without having to go into a studio.  You have it because you’ve connected with it at some point in time and found some healing with it. Maybe you discovered a new way you could be supported that you never thought possible. And maybe it helped you reconnect with your own inner child you thought you left behind long ago. Whatever your reason, it’s all beautiful, and as a thank you for supporting us over the years whether through a teacher training, a Kula class, a Kula Yoga Kids VCS class, a Restorative Sound Healing or Yoga Festival, we would like to offer this class to you for FREE. The whole month of October. Why? Because life has been so challenging, and we can all use some healing. Since I found my healing through yoga, it would be my honor and privilege to offer it to you.  I’ve missed seeing you all regularly to connect in community, hanging out upside down, and of course yoga. Although an “in-person” class may not be your jam right now, it doesn’t have to be, I will visit you through whatever device you’ve got.

 Etherically.  

TV, Computer, Tablet or phone, I can meet you in your home. 

Set me up in your aerial room and we’ll fly together, via Zoom. 

I can give you instruction and support from afar, 

but I cannot catch you should you fall. 

So continue to breath, while you fly

Lifting up from earth to sky.

And be sure to have someone close-by.

We find our space through our breaths

As we delve into our depths.

And if you should think “This poem’s so cool!”

It’s because we are offering a kids class too.

And it has turned me into a rhyming fool! 

Haha ok I’ll end it there. Come join Jeff and I tomorrow for Aerial Livestream at noon and Kids Yoga Livestream at 10am… or both?! Did I mention it’s FREE?!!!! All month long. Thank you yogis and stay well! 

Namaste,

Michele
