“Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don't transcend our lives;
we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.”

Aerial Yoga is
a form of Yoga which uses a low hanging, wide aerial fabric like a hammock to aid traditional yoga postures by supporting your body weight.
Suitable for all levels including complete beginners.
The fabric helps us to achieve postures
that may be too challenging normally and allows us to build towards them
safely or can add an extra element of challenge.
It is an incredible tool and practice for self care, expansion and joy. If
you dream of flying with grace, with fun, with connection and with
confidence, then come see how to make that dream come true. Remember how
good it feels to feel good, and to know that it's more than okay to
feel good about feeling so good. It's yours and everyone's absolute
"There are numerous benefits from practicing aerial yoga,
most notably that it increases both muscular flexibility and joint
mobility, and is particularly helpful in strengthening the core.
also offers muscular tension release through decompression and
hydration of the vertebral discs within the spinal column. This allows
for more space for the nerves within the spinal cord, which can ease
pain and effectively help elongate the spine. One of the best aspects of
aerial yoga, like more traditional yoga forms, is mindfulness," Mick

Every teacher will hold
the space and share the practice in a very unique way. I come from a
background of personal development and human potential, and that is what
I delight in so much with teaching Aerial yoga - our potential and our
development, of core, strength, flexibility and confidence, to name a
This practice simply personifies that capacity on every level; mind, body, emotions and spirit. We are familiar with all the limiting beliefs we have about who yoga is for; body shape, age, gender. We hold true the idea that it takes years of dedicated practice to achieve results. We shy away from a wonderful experience. Then
we find ourselves looking at aerial yoga and we get excited.

that excitement to spiral into fear, doubt and even more limiting
beliefs about what is possible and not possible.
Well, this amazing practice truly is for everyone.

week, from pain relief and increased vitality, to astonishing balance
and control from all shapes sizes and ages.
see confidence blossom, self trust, flips, tricks and beautiful
alignments. People afraid to even lean back into the fabric on class one
can suddenly be found flying in an inversion with the biggest smile on
their face. My teaching is about you; your remarkable capacity and gently unlocking it.
space I hold is love; learning to love ourselves, to stop the negative
inner dialogue, to honour each and every second of exactly who and where
we are. This is the dynamite that opens experiences, confidence,
strength and flexibility that you didn't even know was within you, and
that is why Aerial yoga has become a passion for me.
Life is for living and loving, and it all starts with you!
''I have completed three 5 week sessions with Fiona’s Aerial Yoga
What have I learned?
To Trust: To have trust in my body,
myself. To trust the silks. To trust Fiona.
How to Listen: To listen to
instructions properly without putting my own interpretation on them. To
listen to my body, truly go inside and listen. Listening to the quiet
calm when relaxing in the hammock.
Enjoyment: The feeling of being free
from fear – allowing my body to enjoy the sensations of the different
aerial positions. Being part of a group of people developing their
skills alongside my own.
Connection: I have never, hand on heart, felt a
connection to me, my body. Every part whether it be mind, body, spirit
was separated somehow. Now I truly feel that connection.
What have I
gained? A core!! Thought that was gone long ago (childbirth etc); a
renewed confidence in my own abilities; the ability to switch off the
incessant drivel of negatives proclaiming “Oh you can’t do that”
(especially during the cultural portals we go through at milestone
birthdays, mine was 50th birthday back in September); a friend in Fiona
