Aerial Level 1-2


This class is taught by:

Kim Hinzmann

I am the mother of four amazing and busy children, an over energetic border collie/beagle child and three frisky feline kiddos as well. Some days I feel like I run a zoo! I NEED yoga in my own life and I know everyone can benefit from a yoga practice in theirs! I know in my heart and soul that yoga really IS for EVERY body! Fourteen years ago I had two Doctors tell me I needed spinal surgery, discs needed to be fused which would cause a permanent loss of mobility. Thankfully I was convinced by a third Doctor and my sister to try yoga... I was immediately hooked! I never felt better, not only in my back but in my entire body and self esteem. I had more energy, was stronger than ever and lost weight quickly! I have a drive, a passion, to share this experience with everyone I can. I love to see the growth in my students, physically as well as every other aspect. I bring the love of yoga basics to students who have never had the pleasure of trying yoga as well as to intermediate and advanced students, helping with alignment and up-leveling. Always encouraging growth. I am trained in Vinyasa, Yin and Hatha style yoga. I am and will continue to be a student myself. I look forward to sharing my passion with you soon!
 

Kara Stafford

Kara has a passion for movement and anatomy. Her love of movement began with dance and extended into teaching Pilates as an apprentice at the age of 17. A few years later, she was the youngest teacher to enter and complete the certification program from the Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. Kara's love of anatomy led to a certificate and career in diagnostic ultrasound but after working in the field for several years she realized how much she missed teaching movement. Kara came to yoga hoping to cope with stress, but she left with so much more: a peace and a sense of calm that she had never known before, as well as a physical challenge that was different from her previous forms of movement. After her first yoga class Kara knew she had to teach! There was no way she was going to keep this secret to herself. She completed Baptiste’s Level 1 teacher training program in 2012 and Tiffany Cruikshank’s (Yoga Medicine) 200 hour program in February of 2014. She enjoys studying various styles of Yoga from international and local master teachers. Combing love of movement and anatomical alignment, she hopes to spark and inspire joy and playfulness through her teaching. In addition to teaching, she is the owner and creator of her own custom yoga wear company, Zebra Mama Yoga.

Diandra Fitch

I started yoga a few years ago, when a free class led me to instantly fall in love with hot yoga (I had previously believed I was allergic to exercise.) After I came to Bindi, I continued to grow in my practice and was introduced to Aerial Yoga in Fall of 2014. After one class, I was addicted to the deeper stretching with the support of a hammock, the head rush of inversions and swinging, and the weightless relaxation of the best Savasana of my life. I decided to become a teacher (partly as an excuse to splurge on a hammock for home use,) and now I get to help others find their happiness in Aerial Yoga! My favorite aerial poses are bucket seat inversions and handstand. In my spare time, I like to hike, go off-roading, read, and spend time with my family.
This mixed level Aerial class is the perfect combination for those who are new to Aerial and for those who are ready to advance from a beginner to an intermediate student. Learn the basic grips and how to get in and out of the hammock safely. 
 
Enjoy flying in a hammock, swaying gently suspended from the ceiling, while loosening tight muscles in a beautiful way. Aerial yoga is one of the most fun and creative classes we offer at Bindi! Build strength, flexibility, balance, and metal focus and see the world upside down. Aerial Yoga contains many upside down postures to help decompression of the spine from everyday activities such as sitting at desks and driving long commutes to work. Athletes that are constantly moving and parents that are always on the go, really enjoy these classes for decompression and unlocking muscles that are hard to unlock in mat classes. Aerial classes are held in our non-heated room. Please wear a shirt that covers the arm pits and take out jewelry to prevent snagging the fabric. Mats and props are available for your use, or you can bring your own. All levels are welcome to Aerial classes! Due to our aerial fabric, our weight limit for classes is 250lbs.
 
Please be on time for this class as the paperwork and hammock set up takes time. Please keep in mind that if you are unable to come to your scheduled class, you must cancel your class at least 2 hours ahead of time or there may be a penalty on your account.
