Unnata, meaning “elevated body or spirit”, uses a soft fabric hammock that supports up to 1000 pounds to suspend practitioners while they perform yoga poses. Just like the intent behind traditional hatha yoga, Unnata aerial yoga looks to release chronically tight muscles in order to obtain better posture alignment and benefits the energy body as well as the physical body. The hammock hangs close to the floor so that the student can use the hammock as a prop to either partially or fully support the weight of the body. Pressure on spinal discs and other joints are relieved through relaxation and purposeful slow breathing, as gravity pulls various parts of the body towards the floor, encouraging deep muscles layers to release and spinal structure to realign. The hammock is designed to help the student better understand traditional yoga postures and to help students achieve advanced traditional Yoga Postures.
TIBETAN HEART YOGA
Tibetan Heart Yoga is a 1,000-year-old practice that has been passed down through the Gelukpa tradition of the Dalai Lamas.

Tibetan Heart Yoga brings wisdom and compassion into your daily life. Each class combines yoga postures, special Tibetan poses, and meditations that allow for a deep opening of the heart.
