The hip hang is one of the foundation poses of Aerial Yoga. In this workshop we will work on finding the proper placement for the hammock to gain the most comfort and benefit. We will improve confidence in allowing the body to be completely suspended by the hammock. Exploring poses that can be accessed from this basic posture will challenge flexibility, balance and strength. When placed properly the sling can assist in releasing tension in the hips and thighs giving students access to new range of motion. Beginners welcome.
Wendi Lynch is an E-RYT200, Unnata Aerial certified yoga instructor, and has been a devoted student of yoga since 2002. After falling in love with trapeze arts in 2008 she naturally gravitated to aerial yoga, training with Michelle Dortignac, founder of Unnata Aerial Yoga, in 2010.
The de-compressive qualities of the practice led her to a fluidity and depth of practice she had not experienced before. Her teaching style is playful and athletic, encouraging and creative. Wendi’s teaching is strongly informed by her bodywork; she is a NCTMB and Hawaii state licensed massage therapist. Wendi is continually expanding her knowledge of the architecture of the body and how it relates to poses both on the floor and in the air.
As the first certified Aerial Yoga instructor in the islands, Wendi developed the Aerial Yoga program at the Still and Moving Center in Honolulu. She founded Aerial Yoga Hawaii, teaches weekly classes on Kauai and monthly workshops and bi-annual teacher trainings on Oahu. www.aerialyogahawaii.com
