Shimmy and Swing: Local women find unique ways to work up a sweat.
CT Aerial Yoga is excited to be featured in the October 2017 edition of Valley Life! In her article Shimmy and Swing, staff writer Olivia Piper looks at how local women are getting empowered and finding confidence in their femininity through unique classes offered in the area.
Belly dancing with instructor Gia Khalsa, aerial yoga with CT Aerial Yoga owner/instructor Jayne Dean, and yin aerial yoga with CT Aerial Yoga instructor Beth Gibbs, are the classes highlighted in the article.
Hartford Courant / November 2, 2013 — The yoga studio uses the kind of bright fabric that the acrobats in Cirque du Soleil ride up and down, but this class doesn’t require the abdominal strength or bravery of those kinds of performances.
Unnata Aerial Yoga, a class that elevates some yoga postures off the ground, is accessible to non-gymnasts, and to those who have never tried yoga before.
Jayne Dean, 51, started Hartford’s first class this month, bringing an exercise option that’s hot in New York and was popularized there seven years ago.
She told her inaugural class of five women: “With the hammock, we find our own way. It doesn’t have to be perfect or pretty.”
