Restore, renew and feel the slow flow as we connect the mind and body through breath and movement. A chance to slow down and embrace the flow as you peacefully surrender to the hammock. It is an opportunity to enjoy the softer and more gentle side of AIReal Yoga™. Led by Carmen Curtis, professional Cirque du Soleil artist, choreographer, yogi, and founder of AIReal Yoga™, the first brand of aerial yoga recognized by the Yoga Alliance.

We will use the hammock as a therapeutic yoga prop to decompress the spine, release tension and give space for healing. Guided into simple inversions, you safely “flip your hour glass” into a blissful state of presence. You invert free from tension and compression while nourishing, healing, and decreasing stress and anxiety. Float into the best savasana ever as we turn the focus inward and enjoy meditation and massage while suspended by the hammock.

Carmen Curtis

Meet Carmen Curtis, the founder of AIReal Yoga™, the first and only brand of aerial yoga accredited by the Yoga Alliance. Carmen is one of the premiere experts in the world of aerial yoga and fitness. This petite powerhouse is simultaneously raising the bar on what it means to be a modern-day renaissance woman. Balance is key after all, according to the inspirational and acclaimed yogi; who also counts successful entrepreneur, business owner, teacher, professional Cirque performer, aerialist, choreographer, accomplished athlete, master motivator and, most importantly, wife and mother, among her many titles.

A zealous practitioner for more than two decades, Carmen first found yoga as a way to heal her body from the extreme sports of gymnastic and Cirque performing, and has been teaching it ever since. A testament to the masterful-blending of athlete, art and yoga,Carmen, who is deeply influenced by the teachings of Shiva Rae, Gurmukh and Bryan Kest, has garnered a reputation as the go-to guide for self-love and healing through yoga and the aerial arts.

Hailed as a “teacher’s teacher” who guides practices with great empathy, compassion and a desire to help serve, the highly sought after traveling yogi teaches workshops, retreats, conferences, teacher trainings and performs all over the world.

Following the birth of her second child and wanting to return to her yoga and Cirque roots, Carmen designed AIReal Yoga™ to use an aerial hammock as a yoga prop to align, deepen stretches and safely do inversions. Carmen’s AIReal Yoga™ offers a 50-hour, for certified yoga teachers, and a 200-hour teaching training course accredited by the yoga alliance, where yogis learn both floor based yoga and aerial yoga. Carmen Curtis and the senior certified AIReal Yoga™ instructors are featured presenters at leading global yoga festivals, such as Wanderlust 108, Wanderlust Festivals, Bhakti & Shakti Festival, and Telluride Yoga Festival.

When not traveling, Carmen can most likely be found hanging around at The Aerial Studio, in Ventura, CA, a certified RYS that she was encouraged to open in 2012 after wowing the community with her aerial abilities that she practiced out of her garage. Carmen co-owns the popular multi-faceted modern cirque, acrobatics, dance, yoga and AIReal Yoga™ studio, along with her husband and fellow former Cirque performer and creative, Gregg Curtis.

Carmen is a former gymnast at UCLA where she helped her team win a NCAA National Championship. From early childhood and throughout her college and post-graduate career, she consistently trained in dance, theater and swimming. She earned a B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Higher Education at UCLA and pursued her M.S. in Holistic Nutrition.

Fast-forward to present day and Carmen is still masterfully maneuvering life with grace and balance as a successful working mother of two, literally walking and dancing on air…while jumping through an occasional hoop.

New class start time! Come and claim your space! During this 75-minute class, you get to choose not only your hammock but your anchor point as well. Find the perfect space for you to fly; get adjusted so the hammock fits to YOUR body; enjoy some warm-up time as well as an extra relaxing, well-deserved savasana at the end.

An aerial yoga program credentialed through the Yoga Alliance, AIReal Yoga™ uses a looped fabric, that swivels freely on a single point taking you to a higher level. It allows you to deepen your stretch, correct your alignment, refine postures and safely perform inversions.

Feeling ready to occupy vertical space doing yoga? This class is for every body to benefit from the poses of yoga. The aerial hammock is here to be your friend, your balance, your support in this yoga class. Throughout this class, you find traditional yoga poses as well as some aerial variations. The silky, sling-like hammock, which hangs and swivels from the ceiling, acts as another yoga prop. It assists you with both balance and stability, wrapping around you to hold your full body’s weight so that you feel comfortable and completely supported. Inversions anyone? The hammock also serves as your very own spotter, allowing you to experience and feel benefits from yoga poses you did not think possible.

This aerial yoga class is extremely easy on the joints and will help you to feel proper core engagement, build full body strength, deepen any stretch to increase flexibility. You will correct misalignments within the body, strengthen your yoga mat practice, and bring about feelings of relaxation and bliss as you crawl into your hammock cocoon for savasana at the end of the practice.

You do not need to be an acrobat to defy gravity. Claim your piece of ‘vertical real estate’ in aerial yoga class with any of our AIReal Yoga™ certified instructors.

Kindly let your instructor know of any injuries. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation. Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. Jewelry off. T-shirt on!

Please pre-register for all aerial classes at least half an hour in advance and arrive 5 minutes early to ensure you can safely enjoy the class. Since space is limited and setup time is necessary, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals to Aerial classes.

I get all my yoga teacher trainees to settle their minds by giving them colored pencils and mandala coloring books. They choose certain colors and start on the outside rim of the design, working their way inward. They feel so calm and focussed by the time they get to the center, they don’t want to stop coloring!

What might seem to be a mere child’s play has a lot more to it than you might think. The repetitive or creative process of coloring geometric shapes, or a beautiful design, paying close attention to each stroke, staying inside the lines – this simple and non-threatening task requires no expertise. It’s very easy to engage in. Next thing we know, we are finding some quality quiet time, soothing our thoughts, allowing our brain to enter a different wavelength.

Focusing our attention in the present moment – the pencil and paper in our hands now – benefits our mindfulness in daily dealings. For that time, it automatically unplugs us from technology, such as the phone or computer. It turns us inward when all the distractions of the world try to pull us outward, scattering our consciousness.

A wide variety of art therapies for adults implement coloring. The trials show that coloring as mindfulness meditation can help improve sleep, decrease anxiety, and promote positive life changes.

Try coloring before bedtime – you might sleep more soundly or dream more magical dreams!
