CANTON – A local yoga trainer plans to open a brand new studio downtown that may provide students a distinct angle about the art – the wrong way up.
Kelly Newman Burnham plans to open the Flying Lotus Yoga Center & Juice Bar at 81 Main St. Inside the former bridal store by way of September presenting, amongst different matters, aerial yoga, which could literally turn college students the wrong way up in specially made yoga hammocks.
“That’s my real proposal for beginning the studio,” stated Burnham.
Burnham is a licensed trainer who has taught yoga in the area at several local studios over time and youngsters’ yoga currently at Little River School in Canton.
The aerial yoga style she can characteristic at the studio includes specifically made hammocks suspended from iron bars permitting college students to invert themselves in diverse positions. The style, stimulated by way of Iyengar yoga, will offer proper traction to try to alleviate such things as low again ache, and permit non-weight-bearing handstand positions, stated Burnham.
The nearby teacher found out Sarasota, Florida’s style, from Kerry Tice, a former circus performer, and Cara Levitt. The pair run a studio there called CircuSoul. Tice is the fashion designer of the hammock apparatus.
“It’s sincerely a yoga prop,” Burnham said. Yoga uses a spread of props to facilitate different static and moving positions, like foam bricks, mats, straps, numerous bolsters, and wheels.
Burnham recently taught the style at Allison Smith’s Yoga Studio in Massena. “I had people coming who just wanted to strive something fun,” stated Burnham.
The inverted positions are meditative as properly, Burnham stated. “It’s taking a minute from your busy day,” she said.
Aerial yoga isn’t always the simplest style Burnham will offer at Flying Lotus.
“We’ll offer a wide variety of yoga,” Burnham stated. Ashtanga and kundalini yoga styles can be taught properly. The studio space is large enough and will be set up to allow two lessons to run simultaneously.
With a focal point on holistic health, there will also be a smoothie and juice bar. Later this year, meditation workshops, certified therapeutic rub down, aromatherapy, reiki classes, and tarot card readings.
Burnham hopes to provide yoga trainer schooling as well finally.
“It’s an exceptional sort of venture,” Burnham said of opening her personal studio. But she credits her time working as an administrative assistant at Little River School the previous few years to increase the commercial enterprise talents she will want at Flying Lotus. “It thinks that became a good revel in for me as far as proudly owning my very own commercial enterprise goes.”
“It’s been a big challenge,” Burnham stated.
Likewise, she is working with Michelle Collins on the Small Business Center in Canton to set up the studio’s marketing strategy.
The instructor hopes Flying Lotus will amplify yoga exercises inside the vicinity.
“Yoga meets humans wherein they’re,” Burnham said. “The greater yoga there is to do, the extra people will do yoga. . . It’s, in reality, nice to assist human beings in finding the right yoga for them.”
