Aerial Flow Yoga

AERIAL FLOW YOGA - Taking place at Casa Devarya located on the sister property of Devarya Wellness, a river property in Morjim 
3rd - 10th Nov 2019
 
Join us at Devarya for a week of understanding the self through defying gravity and eventually learning how to play with it. Being in air can be challenging yet exhilarating and we will show you how beautiful an upside down world can be. Learn to fly, start to write and reconnect with the voice which always knew what you wanted to be. Goa calls you and may you enjoy the beautiful location and the wonderful ambience of Devarya Wellness. 
 
 
ABOUT THE TEACHER -
Deboshree Roy Chowdhury is a professional aerialist and dancer with a background of over 10 years spent in training. She has trained in Yoga all through her dancing career and specializes in Hatha Yoga and Aerial Flow certified by the UK Yoga Alliance. She has been teaching extensively and passionately to help people become stronger and more connected to themselves.
 
HER PURPOSE- 
 
My main aim is to make people conquer their fears and become stronger mentally and physically. For that purpose, aerial flow is my means. To fly, to do anything that is anti gravity requires not just strength but also the courage to let go of a lot of our fears. And in doing so and conquering our fears in one facet of our lives, we trickle that confidence into all arenas of our life, creating a base for a stronger mind which can then walk the path of meditation and understanding the self fearlessly. 
Trusting one's body is of key importance and through aerial flow, I have begun to see that marvellous change in the lives of my students and its my deepest desire to spread that knowledge furthermore.
 
 
THE CURRICULUM-
 
My entire curriculum is an amalgamation of my knowledge in dancing, aerial and yoga. All of the asanas that are present and passed down from time immemorial, have their own version in aerial flow.
Some of the asanas that remain a constant through the class are -
 
SIRSHASANA (hanging headstand)
SARVANGASANA (shoulderstand)
DHANURASANA (bow pose)
UPAVISHTHAKONASANA (Extended leg stretch)
ARDHA KAPOTASANA (half pigeon pose)
VIRABHADRASANA (warrior pose)
 
The rest of the class flows using the help of soothing music to aid people in finding the connections from one asana to the next. It isn't the asana in itself that is of utmost importance but the way it is executed and the state of the mind while executing it. Each body is different and must be given the space and time to express itself in its best possible way.
 
 
BENEFITS OF AERIAL FLOW-
 
1) Aerial Flow is great for spinal Decompression and hence great for anyone who is seeking relief from lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder stiffness.
2) It also challenges your central nervous system and enhances our mental capacity.
3) Works on Core Strengthening and Upper body toning and mobility.
4) Another key benefit is that it gets your adrenaline going while going against gravity. It also releases “happy” hormones like serotonin, endorphins, oxytocin, dopamine, which boost your mood and help you feel more energetic.
5) It also improves the circulation of blood, thus combating aging and its symptoms. Aerial yoga also helps detoxify the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which lowers the onset of various cardiovascular issues.
