About This Event
On our Aerial and Yin Yoga Retreat, we will start each morning with a gravity reversing, joint reviving Aerial yoga class in our spacious studio and end the day with a harmonizing, calming restorative Yin practice.
Aerial yoga’s fiery stabilization and Yin yoga’s earthy sequences are a dynamic combination of action and pause.
In Yin yoga, we apply a passive and moderate stretch to the connective tissues, fascia, tendons, and ligaments with the aim to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. These poses are designed to improve the flow of prana and calm the mind.
Aerial yoga is practiced with the use of silk hammocks that are used as props to increase strength and develop flexibility in the joints. The silks allow us to take the weight off of our feet, resulting in joint relief, reversed blood flow, and lymphatic drainage.
In Aerial yoga, all of the body parts gently move and stretch. The muscles rejuvenate, and the joints become stronger. We use our core strength to balance and stabilize during this practice.
The combination of these two unique practices results in a strong, relaxed body and mind.

I had the opportunity to receive an amazing shiatsu treatment and a yoga class with Cecilia while she was in Australia. Her kindness, passion and patience are just the perfect combination of wellness and Zen. I also loved how she combines the Chinese Medicine and her knowledge in her yoga classes, just a great fusion! Highly recommended!

Cecilia is amazing both as a yoga teacher and as a person. Her good energy and good heart are the perfect match for one of the best places I’ve been in the world. Gili Meno. An amazing little island with the best energy I’ve experienced. Def recommend :)

She was one of the best and down to earth yoga teachers I have come in across my experience. And I am Indian, if that adds any weight to the review. If it wasn't for her i wouldn't have taken up yoga as part of my routine. Go to the places she recommends to go in Gili Meno, Bali or in Lombok. You would be pleasantly surprised as I was.
