Kaya Aerial Yoga Philadelphia
In the heart of old city Philadelphia there are two yogis with a passion for teaching acrobatic yoga in a very small studio. Studio owners & partners Leyna Schaeffer and Harrison Wright offer fun and unique fitness classes including aerial yoga, acro yoga, aerial silks and aerial lyra, along with floor yoga. As the only acrobatic yoga studio in the tri-state area, the possibilities of what this unique fitness can bring to the Philadelphia yoga community are huge. The yoga they teach helps cultivate a sense of playfulness, trust, connection, self confidence and community. Their goal is to move the yoga studio to a larger space in the Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties and expand the business and take their teachings to new heights!
With your help the studio can move to a prime location in Northern Liberties, a hip upcoming area in the Piazza at Schmidts (only a mile from current studio) with larger spaces and higher ceilings (16ft) and offer this unique fitness on a larger scale! The money raised will go towards securing the new space & moving ($15,000) and aerial equipment ($5,000). This will allow us to offer higher level circus arts, silks classes, hold exciting aerial events, higher level acrobatics, open circus jams and hold large floor practice classes, training's and workshops. Even if the entire goal is not reached it will not stop this duo from moving into a larger space, they will just be that much closer! We hope to move the studio as early as fall 2014.
The yoga community in Philadelphia will benefit greatly from the unique offerings that help shed the walls built up by fear and disconnection. Learning to trust yourself on a new apparatus or with a partner allows the freedom we once had as children back into our lives. We become light hearted, feel connected and slowly remember how to play!
