If you’ve been intimidated by backbends, this workshop is for you! Inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli, a yogi who was able to do deep backbends well into her 90’s, this workshop explores the fundamentals of backbends and spinal flexibility both on the mat and in the air. The aerial silks allow for support, making challenging poses accessible, even for beginners. For the experienced Yogi, more challenging options will be covered to take your practice to the next level.

Regular Yoga practice or Aerial 101 required. Aerial 101 is offered at 11:00 am.

Zeny Ogrisseg E-RYT 500 was first exposed to Yoga as a child when she would listen to her mom chanting ‘om’. In 2003 she began her formal studies in Yoga and has since completed several teacher trainings, the most recent being her completion of the Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Wendi Lynch. Zeny is also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist, Pilates Mat and Reformer Instructor and has a Black Belt in TaeKwonDo.
Under Shiva Rea she learned the art of Vinyasa Flow and how yoga can be an uplifting dance that celebrates the gift of our bodies.

Under Andrey Lappa, creator of Universal Yoga, she learned how Yoga can accelerate one’s spiritual evolution and bring harmony and peace to your life. In 2009 Zeny went to India to study connect to her Indian roots (Zeny is of Sikh descent) and to study Tantra Yoga.

She describes her classes as a tapestry that weaves together elements of Classical Yoga, Tantra, Dharma, bhakti, Sacred Chant, meditation, and study of yoga texts.
