What is Aerial Yoga Play?
I came across AYP when I had debilitating lower back pain (from the stress of my emotional pain) while I was on vacation in Maui. The owner of the retreat I was staying at taught AYP and helped me relieve the pain with an inversion. After that I was hooked! (pun intended).
I am now a certified Aerial Yoga Play and AYRx Instructor and teach in the East Bay of San Francisco.
Aerial Yoga Play is the ultimate heart opening yoga therapy that is for all ages and fitness levels. Using the swing we can spiral our hearts open, bring in our spirituality and feel like a child playing at recess once again.
Aerial Yoga Play
Aerial Yoga Play (AYP) was founded and created by Jen Healy with her background in Electrical Engineering and Physics, she brought an innovative approach to the movement arts that she call "Quantum Healing - Body Engineering and Energy Management."
AYP allows a combination of benefits similar to aerial yoga, pilates, suspended resistance training, acrobatics and dance all rolled into one for an amazing suspended fitness experience. It allows for all of the benefits of traditional yoga - flexibility, strength and balance - with the unique conditioning of aerial dance and acrobatics for an exhilarating new way of approaching yoga.

The Aerial Yoga Play swings are specially made to be supportive, stretchy and comfortable. They support your body in your yoga practice and increase your ability to enter into challenging poses, like backbends and inversions, with more safety and ease.

I am a mother of two small children. During my pregnancies I found that there are few outlets for exercise that embodied everything I was looking for....safety in all trimesters, fun, sweat inducing and/or relaxing, and comfortable for me and my body.
With the knowledge of Aerial Yoga Play, AYRx, and traditional pre-natal and post-natal yoga. I have created a safe and fun class that strengthens, stretches and relaxes you during each of your trimesters. With the Aerial Yoga Swing we have the ability to stretch, back bend and even do inversions safely. My sessions with all my clients finish with a "yoga-ssage" in the cocoon leaving you rejuvenated and energized.
