Maya D’Alessio is new to the circus world and is currently addicted to aerial hoop (Lyra). She completed her yoga teaching certification last year and is now making it her mission to bring yoga to the Brass Butterflies community. She has a passion for gentle, restorative, and relaxing yoga to help restore the body and mind, especially after the rigours of an aerialists training regimen! 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.
Maya D'Alessio instructs the following:
- Aerial Yoga (Hammock)
- Body TLC Yoga
Formerly known as Flight and Flexy, Aerial Yoga provides a balanced whole-body yoga workout utilizing the aerial hammock both as support and to get in to unique body positions. From core strength to splits, the hammock is there to support and challenge all levels of students as we work on balance, strength, and flexibility.
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, all are welcome!
