Life is Better Upside Down!

It has been a while since we have posted on our blog. Since our move to our new home studio with higher ceilings and more aerial yoga hammocks, Kama Fitness has been expanding its workshop and class offerings, as well. 

Did I mention we also now have a private Facebook group just for Kama Fitness members? It's a great place to share photos, ask questions, meet one another, and get up to date information on sales, events, and class cancellations without those pesky e-mails that flood our inboxes sometimes. 

Our new schedule also offers different levels of aerial yoga and aerial fitness classes, along with more stretching and flexibility. 

In addition, we are excited to announce we offer once a month Open Studio nights (one Friday a month at 7:00pm) for students to come try out a new apparatus, or work on skills they have learned in class. 

And finally -- we have a whole bunch of new workshops coming up in the next few months. Back by popular demand, we will be holding our Yoga UnWINEd on Saturday, February 27 at 6:00pm ..... and will be also offering a workshop on using essential oils for relaxation in our Aroma Yoga Workshop, where everyone will receive a small sample kit of doTerra essential oils. AND I'm not done! There will be another Sling Workshop (the last one was awesome) on April 2, and an Aerial Fitness Conditioning Workshop for the home or gym in March. 

We hope to see you at one or a few of these awesome workshops -- and will be offering an "Aerial Dance Flow" workshop soon, given by Lauren Delorey (owner of LA Dance) on transitions, musicality, and creating unique flows on the aerial fabric.  I am VERY excited about this - if you haven't yet, check out her Instagram page where she posts her amazingly beautiful and creative flows on the aerial silks and aerial hammock. 

I will likely post a separate post about this, but after much patience from many of you and a large waiting list -- the Kama Fitness Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Manual (Volume 2) is finally done and printed! It is available in electronic PDF or hardcopy for $50 (shipping now included.) We have been flooded with orders and working to keep up with getting these out as quickly as possible! Thank you for your patience -- there will be a Teacher Training in the Fall of 2016 for anyone local to the southern New Hampshire area, so stay tuned!

Mix and Mingle!

In case you haven't heard, Kama Fitness has moved its location to join forces with LA Dance. Together, Lauren Delorey or LA Dance and Karlene Murphy of Kama Fitness offer fun and unique fitness for the whole family - from ages ranging from 2 to 82! 

Located at 11 Main Street in Danville, NH -- Directly off of NH-111 in Hampstead, New Hampshire -- this beautiful studio offers aerial silks fitness for all ages and abilities. The facility offers 3 studios for dance (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and modern), another for aerial conditioning and aerial yoga, aerial pilates, and aerial barre, and another room with cathedral ceilings over 20 feet high with 6 aerial silks rigged for children to adults to learn how to fly! 

With our new studio, new silks, and new classes - we are excited to invite you to celebrate with us at our Mix and Mingle on Friday, December 11 beginning at 6:30pm. 

There will be **free** fitness demos of aerial silks, aerial barre and pilates, and aerial yoga classes -- along with local fashion stores B. ready and Simply Vogue of Exeter, New Hampshire. This event is a FREE night for all, and there will be fun, food, fitness, and fashion. 
Those are my four favorite "F's" ! 

We will also be raffling off an opportunity to win free classes, clothing, and accessories.

 This is a night you will not want to miss! 

Hope to Fly with you soon!

Moving On!

Kama Fitness is moving into a whole new space - and we couldn't be more excited. 

Beginning December 1, 2015 all of our classes will now take place at 11 Main Street in Danville, NH - directly off NH-111, and only 10 minutes from our current location. 

As our client base has grown to over 300 students, we have needed to move out of our little home studio (as beautiful as it is!) and combine forces with the talented, beautiful, and sweetest soul, Lauren Delorey of LA Dance. 

Lauren has managed her dance studio for almost a decade, and now is combining her beautiful studio with Kama Fitness to provide fitness and fun for all ages. 

The new location has plenty of parking and 3 large studios for Barre, Pilates, Yoga, Aerial, and Fitness circuit classes. With this larger space, Kama will be able to expand our offerings and allow more participants into classes. We will slowly move into more morning and weekend classes, as well. Please check out our new schedule --

Falling Back into Love with Fitness

September is hands down my favorite month -- and this one was no exception.

The weather is gorgeous here in New Hampshire, the leaves are turning, there's still a few more good beach days to fit in, and everyone is getting ready for wool socks and chocolate (or pumpkin) flavored coffee. People seem to smile more this time of year, and the studio has been filling in with laughter, fun, and good vibes. '

And if you live in New England, you know that Fall is the best time of year for football, apple picking, and town fairs! Kama Fitness was lucky enough to participate in several town events this year. 

Kama was even invited to do live demonstrations for Lululemon up at the Kittery Outlets in Maine - it was a beautiful day, with a huge turn out of shoppers and yoga fans alike. 

While we were busy on the weekends giving demonstrations to the public, we stayed busy during the week offering our final SUP and SIP Yoga UnWINEd workshop - hosted by Sup on the Pond in Epping  which was a beautiful evening of SUP yoga to sunset, followed with wine, chocolate, fireworks, and a bonfire --

And we have just begun our very first Kama Fitness Aerial Yoga Teacher Training, guided by our manual we mentioned in our last blog post  - the girls have been doing great, studying hard and practicing spotting and techniques for best teaching practices. 

You can purchase your own copy of this manual through our website -- but we are very excited to announce that we have JUST SOLD OUT our First Edition. No worries -- you can still pre-order your copy today for our 2nd Edition that will be ready to go  out in mid-November 2015. 

In between all the fun, Kama was asked to give a presentation on Yoga for Frequent Drivers up in Concord, NH -- This was a great opportunity to meet teachers, politicians, and police force of the state of New Hampshire to give them some basic stretches and techniques to relieve stress in both our body and minds. 

Meanwhile, Kama is actively looking to expand our little studio in the southern and seacoast area of New Hampshire. Our beautiful home studio has been wonderful, and will surely always be the base of our mission for positivity and love of movement. As we grow, however, we are in search of a new home - preferably with higher ceilings :) 

Kama Fitness at LA Dance every Thursday 

We are currently running an Adult Aerial Silks program at a local dance studio  --LA Dance -- where Thursday nights are fun packed and challenging. Our program is running every Thursday until March 2016 and just a few more spaces remain. If interested, you can reserve your spot here

That's all for now -- Have a great October, enjoy a coffee for me, and drop us a comment or question if you want to stop by our studio and check us out! We'd love to hear from you :)

What's New and Exciting!

Hey, There!

It's been a busy summer - the weather has been gorgeous, and the studio has been busy. Here's a few announcements about some items that we are REALLY excited about at Kama Fitness for August. 

First off - a few weeks ago Karlene had the pleasure of working with Allison from Kiss the Bride Photography and the amazingly talented Shelly and Sherri from Water's Edge Salon and Spa in Derry, New Hampshire. These ladies pulled together their vision for an "Aerial Bride Photoshoot" - complete with bouquets and elaborate hair and make up that definitely looks and feels "avant garde." 

Seriously - look at all that hair! Shelly is a hair styling prodigy - you have to check out her portfolio, her work has been featured on quite a few magazine covers. She was able to take my very fine, thin hair that is only shoulder length and teased the sh*t out of it to make me look like I had extensions in. 

I had so much fun working with these ladies. Check out our Instagram feed for some behind the scenes funnies. Keep an eye out as we may be working on some future projects together this coming year :) 

This weekend we will be teaming up with Leah Gatchell, SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Yoga Instructor at her home where she has a huge man-made pond built for SUP Yoga specifically. We are hosting our first of many workshops with Leah guiding us through Yoga poses in her beautiful back yard. This month's SUP filled up quickly, so stay tuned for next month's SUP and Kama Fitness Workshop. In the meantime, check out SUP on the Pond here - Leah often brings her classes to the seacoast - how cool is that!?

And my LAST announcement that I am SO excited about -- We have finally finished writing our first edition of the Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Manual for 
Kama Fitness!

This baby took 6 months, 150 pages, and hours of revising, editing, studying, practicing, and teaching to create. When I finally finished it this week, and picked it up at the printers, I stared at it in disbelief. It's finally done!! 

Over 100 Aerial Yoga Poses are included in this manual.

We will be hosting our first teacher training this Fall 2015, and our class is already full. If you want to check this manual out for yourself, it is available for purchase here

Over 100 Aerial Yoga Poses are included in this manual.

We hope your summer has been just as fun filled and exciting as ours has been. We have more exciting announcements for the Fall as we join up with other businesses in our area- but, we will keep those a secret for now :) Stay Tuned!
