Sky's The Limit - Aerial Fitness & Yoga
Tyra attended Wake Forest University where she majored in Health & Exercise Science and played Division I Field Hockey. She was first introduced to yoga as a teenager during a group-led backcountry expedition, where it became a powerful tool to relax and stretch tight muscles. Tyra received her yoga training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and is a registered yoga teacher (RYT-500) with specialized training in Teaching Yoga To Athletes. She aims to use her knowledge of competitive athletics paired with yoga to enhance individuals' athletic performance. Additionally, Tyra holds a Master of Science in Yoga Therapy from Maryland University of Integrative Health. As a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT), Tyra uses yoga practices and poses to address health concerns like diabetes, anxiety, hypo/hyperthyroidism, cardiac rehabilitation, depression and others, to cultivate wellness. Overall, her teaching style focuses on anatomical alignment, mindful movement and challenging individuals to step outside their comfort zone to promote personal growth, increase strength and gain better understanding of their bodies.
Tyra further expanded her repertoire of yoga certification by obtaining aerial training at Christopher Harrison’s AntiGravity Fitness Lab in New York City. Her aerial knowledge includes certifications in AntiGravity Fundamentals 1 & 2, Aerial Yoga 1 & 2, Restorative Aerial Yoga, Suspension Fitness 1 & 2 and AirBarre. Tyra continually changes aerial class content to work different muscle groups and frequently offers pose variations for confident exploration of exercises and inversions while in the hammock. Laughter is always welcome in her classes - aerial is fun! Tyra looks forward to sharing her excitement of this method of movement with those willing to take their fitness and yoga into the third dimension!
“Tyra creates an inclusive environment where students of all skill levels are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone in a safe and supported way. I always leave her classes feeling challenged and empowered! I would recommend Tyra’s classes to anyone looking to gain confidence and grow physically and mentally stronger.” -GC
