Enjoy a birds-eye view with Aerial Yoga at Sky House Yoga!
Sky House is excited to offer aerial yoga with a third floor view of the treetops. Aerial Yoga is a modern style of yoga that incorporates a low-hanging soft fabric hammock to explore alignment, release chronic tension, hang around upside down, and experience lightness and freedom.
Aerial yoga helps you to move more freely, with less effort, by counteracting gravity. Suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility and deepening your practice. Suspended yoga strengthens core muscles and increases spinal and shoulder flexibility.
Where do I start?
For students who are new to aerial yoga you'll start with an introductory aerial yoga class or workshop. Sky House is offering special introductory classes on Friday, April 28th from 7:45 - 9:00 pm and Saturday, April 29th and May 6th from 9:15 - 10:30 am. Click here to register.
We also offer introductory workshops once a month on Saturdays from 1 - 2:15 pm. Click here to register.
Who is aerial yoga for?
Aerial yoga is for every body! With the support of our low hanging hammocks you will find freedom and ease in your joints and enjoy a cocooned savasana/relaxation experience at the end of class. Aerial yoga can be enjoyed by new yogis as well as seasoned practitioners. With small class sizes and highly trained staff each student will be cared for in every pose.
Aerial yoga attire
Short sleeves or long sleeves are required for aerial yoga. Underarms must be covered. No tank tops. Please do not wear clothes with zippers or buttons and please plan on removing all jewelry prior to class.

Students will learn the 7 fundamental wraps in this class, specifically where to place the fabric for maximum comfort, support and compression benefits. Aerial inversions will be covered step by step and with spotting if necessary. Time spent upside down will be brief for each occurrence to build up tolerance. This class will also reinforce the benefits of feeling heaviness in the fabric so students gain proprioceptive awareness of feeling grounded while flying. All safety elements will be reinforced for beginners or those needing a refresher.

Sky House Aerial Yoga Teacher
Sarah is known for her focused, smart sequencing, her ability to motivate with a smile, and knowledge of which exercises are the most efficient to achieve maximum effect. She is also known for her track record of teaching 38 fitness classes a week for nearly 2 years ranging from high intensity interval formats to body rolling to yoga. Her focus now is treating training like a practice, not a workout. Skill development is the name of her game. She uses foundational progressions, namely pulling and grip strength, unilateral work, scapular positioning and correctives, handstand training, hollow body isometric holds, strength at end rage, and functional hip mobility, to develop a movement quality that is recognizable in that it combines strength with mobility, form with fluidity, and control with freedom.
She is an experienced registered yoga teacher, and holds certifications in group exercise, Pilates, Pilates apparatus, aerial yoga, and TRX. She is a master aerial yoga teacher and conducts teacher trainings in the style of Vaihayasa aerial yoga. She has also trained extensively and is an experienced teacher of acro yoga, body rolling (self-myofascial release), and bodyweight calisthenics.
Sarah holds an M.S. in Nutrition from Tufts University and spent a year teaching nutrition and exercise science to undergraduates at MIT in 2011.
She currently provides nutritional consultations, and specializes in eating for performance, navigating the symptoms of digestive dysfunction, seasonal cleansing, and is working on a cookbook. She has also worked as a private chef for individuals with specific nutritional goals and often presents on nutrition topics to corporations.
Sarah also holds a Master's Degree in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School and an undergraduate degree in International Relations and Music from Bowdoin College.
Sarah's extensive training, inordinate amount of energy, self-practice, and dedication to continued learning is only rivaled by her genuine love for sharing movement with her students and helping them to move with power, grace and joy. Learn more about Sarah at www.sarahhippert.com.
