Aerial Yoga & Introspective Climbs
Trees provide an essential energy source that we can connect with to help us find balance in our lives and improve our well-being. Sitting in the presence of trees exposes you to this energy, thereby reducing feelings of depression, stress, and anxiety.
Aligning yourself with this energy, your body naturally experiences a reduction in blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and stress hormones. In a more calm and balanced state, you will find deeper engagement in your meditation, relaxation, and yoga practices.
Aerial Yoga utilizes fabrics suspended from the tree, allowing you to connect with the tree while maintaining physical grounding with the ground. Aerial hammocks suspended from the tree's sturdy and embracing branches place you within the flow of energy between the Earth and tree.
My aerial yoga practice follows the spirit of a traditional Hatha yoga practice. The hammock is used as an aid to allow you to more fully engage in poses. The fabric facilitates deep stretching, helps to release strain throughout your body, and relieve compression of your spine.
Introspective climbs enable you to ascend into the crown of the tree utilizing rope and saddle. The security of the climbing system allows you to focus your attention on your experience aloft.
The focus of an introspective climb is to allow a more thoughtful and intentional experience during your time in the tree (compared to our Rec Climbs which tend to be accompanied by enthusiastic and energetic play and conversation between climbers).
Supported in your saddle you are able to hang freely, stand, or sit on branches amongst the leaves and birds. This feeling of security provides you the freedom to meditate, practice mindfulness, or simply calm your mind and appreciate the peace and serenity in the canopy.
At this time, Aerial Yoga and Introspective Climbs are scheduled by appointment only.
Your experience is tailored according to your desire, be it aerial yoga in silks, guided or unguided meditative climb, or yoga in the branches.
Schedule your personal meditation or aerial yoga experience for yourself, family, or group.
Update: Given the growing interest in Tree Yoga, we are working to offer public sessions in 2019!
