Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Body TLC Yoga

This class is taught by:

Maya D'Alessio

Aerial and Yoga Instructor

Maya D’Alessio started as an aerials student at the studio in 2016 and it quickly became an addiction. With a background as a yoga teacher, she tries to approach aerial training with body awareness and acceptance. She has a passion for gentle, restorative, and relaxing yoga to help restore the body and mind. As a new aerial instructor she is excited to engage with students and bring her yoga background and obsession with human anatomy in to her aerials teaching. When she’s not in the studio you can find her at home with her cats or in her graduate research lab slowly getting closer to graduation.

Kristen Leal

Kristen lead Zumba classes in Kitchener Waterloo for over 4 years and is also a certified Fitness Instructor with CanFitPro.  In 2016 she began taking aerial classes at Brass Butterflies and joined the team teaching high energy Zumba classes and parties.  Most recently, Kristen joined the Brass Butterflies aerial instruction team during the summer of 2018. 
A gentler class, great for recovery and rest days, that aims to target our pole dancer and aerialist "trouble spots", making space in the body through movement and relaxation of the muscles. Key areas of focus will include the hips, the back, the shoulders, ankles, wrists, and the chest. Taking time to connect with these areas of tension will help to maintain mobility and flexibility and prevent injury.  No previous yoga experience is needed.  You don't have to be a pole or aerial curriculum student to attend.  All are welcome!
