“Yoga Nidra” is translated to mean “yoga sleep” and is a guided relaxation which for this livestream will transition naturally into a guided meditation. Typically, yoga nidra is more restful than standard sleep, which will help our meditation be more effective and restorative. Yoga Nidra is accessible to everyone, irregardless of age, mobility, health, experience, or cognitive abilities.

Unnata® Aerial Yoga is the original aerial yoga method created by a yogi, for students (and teachers) who love yoga. The Unnata method weaves use of the hammock into a traditional Hatha Yoga class to enhance and refine a traditional floor yoga practice. Considered more of a “supported” yoga class than an “aerial” yoga class, students unwind old physical patterns, reset their body’s true alignment, and learn deeper body awareness in multi-dimensional space. Unnata Yoga classes ground as much as elevate, and balance both earth and air.
Unnata is real Yoga, elevated.
Michelle Dortignac, founder of Unnata® Aerial Yoga, is credited with developing the entire genre of aerial yoga. She is an E-RYT 500 certified Yoga instructor of 25 years, while during a large portion of those years also being a professional aerial acrobatics performer. Her most influential Yoga teachers include Dharma Mittra, Alan Finger, Cyndi Lee, Susan Braham and Nishit Patel.
Since its inception in 2006, Unnata Aerial Yoga led the growth of popularity and the continued development of aerial yoga. Today the Unnata Aerial Yoga Teacher Training program is world renowned for its high standards, high-quality training. Participants receive large amounts of personalized instruction, and graduates receive a great amount of continuing support.
