Aerial Yoga Play, founded by Jen Healy, is a combination of yoga, dance, Pilates, TRX, and aerial fitness rolled into one amazing suspended fun and therapeutic experience! The Aerial Yoga Rx (AYRX) Yoga Swing supports you so you can hang, stretch, push and pull in 3-D space. Sculpt your body in the air as you tone muscles while increasing strength and flexibility. We call it the "accidental workout" because it is fitness and fun. Aerial Yoga Play combines the benefits of strength and balance found in traditional yoga with the unique conditioning of aerial dance for a new way to fitness.

AYRx (Aerial Yoga Rx) is the latest expression of therapeutics applied to the Aerial Yoga Play practice.  It is specifically designed to address injury, illness, and health concerns with the poses and sequences learned in the AYP program.  It is safe and effective for every level of experience and age.  You will be amazed at how much better you feel.

Dedicated to advancing the healing arts, Jen Healy has over 18 years of experience and excellence, including extensive knowledge and understanding of structure, anatomy, energy flow, and alignment.  She brings a dynamic blend of yoga, dance, and movement to Aerial Yoga Play that allows full self-expression, release of limitations, and openness that is fun, playful, powerful, and healing as well as steeped with profound teachings and practical knowledge.

What’s the difference between taking the workshop, an intensive, or the training?

  • The 90-minutes workshops (with the exception of the Sun. 2/3 Advance Workshop) are all levels. NO experience necessary. They provide a taste of what we do in the training.

  • The full training program is for teachers/professionals that want to get certified to teach this style of yoga/movement therapy (all workshops are included in the training).

  • One day intensives** are for workshop attendees who want to follow up with a deeper experience, and an opportunity to master the basics in their own practice, but are not interested in a certification (**one day intensive spots will open in January, with priority to those pursuing the certification)
