Aerial Yoga Teacher Training





We are so excited to announce that coming this Fall 2015, Kama Fitness will be offering an Aerial Yoga Teacher Training program. 






Since we have begun our journey, Kama Fitness has evolved from fitness training and clean eating recipes into a fitness studio for women. We offer a place for women to workout in a comfortable, friendly environment with unique workouts that are both effective and fun! 




As we have grown, and as we look towards the future (celebrating our studio's 1 year anniversary this July), we wish to offer a program for Yoga Teachers and Fitness Instructors that will guide them in the use of the aerial silk hammock in their classes. 

We have created a manual that and program that will cover basic anatomy, class structure and sequencing, proper form in aerial yoga postures, and assisting students. For more information, you can look at our full curriculum here.





This program will be running the Fall of 2015 - and sign ups will be closing soon! E-mail us directly to learn the art of aerial yoga.


Our manual is still in the final stages of production, and is endorsed by Aerial Essentials - the supplier of all our equipment and hardware at Kama Fitness. 




If you're excited as we are about this amazing opportunity, don't wait to sign up -- this manual will provide you with the basics for guiding students safely through an aerial yoga class. For a sneak peek at our manual, check out an excerpt from our introduction: 


"This is an exciting time in the fitness world – people are discovering more unique and fun ways to work out. This has brought much attention to the yoga and aerial worlds as many adults are beginning to find new methods of moving that feel good and are effective. Aerial has been around for many years, but only recently has taken off in the mainstream fitness community. Yoga, likewise, has been around for thousands of years, and only in the last few years has it evolved into so many different forms.... "


"Welcome to this exciting new world..... Using a silk hammock in a yoga class is not unlike using any other prop, such as a block, bolster, strap, or mat. Many of my students have come to me with injuries, back pain, flexibility issues, weakness, and all have seen continual improvement in these areas from the use of the silk hammock. Regardless of gender, weight, age, mobility, athleticism, and yoga knowledge, countless people have benefited from aerial yoga. How you incorporate this tool in your class structure is entirely up to you."

           " Aerial Yoga is not just some new trend for circus performers. It’s a bridge, a tool, a fusion of two arts, that can empower, heal, and is just plain fun"

Take Your Fitness to a New Level!




Summer is finally just around the corner here in New Hampshire - and as the trees begin to look greener, the sun gets warmer, and the days get longer - Kama Fitness is gearing up for some new classes and workshops to keep you fit this summer!

Kama Fitness has had an amazing first year - from the birth of our little studio, watching it grow as our students have gotten stronger and more empowered- and learning to LOVE their workouts. 






We have had the privilege of being the FIRST and ONLY Aerial Yoga studio in New Hampshire that offers unique fitness classes including Aerial Pilates, Aerial Barre, Yoga UnWINEd, and Hip Hop Yoga ( in addition to MANY, MANY more fun classes that vary from intense to relaxing).




There are SO MANY new things happening here - and it's all very exciting! 
The girls of Kama Fitness have been working hard all year, and will be taking a Break from June 24 - July 5. Karlene will be hopping over to visit London and Dublin for a week, so there will be no classes until after the July 4th Holiday. Enjoy this time with family and friends -- 

And when we're back, be sure to dig into our Sweet Summer Savings with 3 Months of Unlimited Classes (that's July 5 - October 5) for only $299. No codes necessary, this special is live on our MindBody site for purchase now - grab it while it's hot! 








PLUS! - We will be having all  **new** fun fitness classes and workshops planned, such as


Yoga Flex - A mixture of vinyasa yoga flow with weights for intensity and calorie torching energy! 

Mommy and Me Aerial Fitness - Bring your little one Tuesday and Friday mornings for some bonding and play, all while getting stronger and toned. 


Off the Ground! Aerial Fitness 6 Week Summer Series -- Taking fitness to new heights instructing beginner aerial students to climb, wrap, and build strength through conditioning techniques that put the FUN in FUNctional fitness. Every Tuesday from 5:15 - 6:30 join us to take your fitness to a new level. 





Self Defense Workshops - taught by Peter Murphy, a coach and martial artist with over 30 years under his many black belts. Peter has been studying various forms of self defense in all parts of the world, coached world title champions, and was involved in special ops. Join him July 19 from 1-3 pm to learn the basics in risk management. 


Intro to Inversions Workshop - Always a fun time getting upside down. Karlene has a knack for getting beginners to engage their core, link their body and mind, and elevate their practice into basic arm balances and inversions. Sunday, July 12 we will be learning to fly. 


And finally this Fall 2015 we will expand our calendar to include weekly Intro to Aerial Fitness Workshops to BEGINNERS ONLY at our studio - every Sunday from 9:00- 10:00am. This workshop serves as a great introduction to using the aerial hammock as a tool for empowerment, therapy, and just plain fun to add to your fitness routine. 

WHEW. 

We are offering so many new and exciting things for 2015 - and we hope you join us!

Adult Ballet at Kama Fitness -- Spring 2015



Need a good laugh? Want to kill 5 minutes? 

Head on over to Youtube and check out this masterpiece.... of our oh-so-talented staff at Kama Fitness doing some Ballet moves to Beyonce: 



At least you were entertained, right? If you dislike this video, please turn it off immediately, and we apologize. We are NOT professional dancers by any stretch of the imagination, but our Instructor, Kayla Lopez, is! 





Kayla is bringing her lifelong love of classical ballet to our little studio, for adults! New Hampshire doesn't seem to have many adult dance programs that are simply for fun, so Kayla's dream of running an adult ballet program has come to life. Kayla brings humor, fun, and professionalism to the table - all while giving you an amazing workout for your body and mind. 






Before we nail our Plies and Tendu, we can fake it, right?





And don't worry - this class does not require any background in any form of dance, nor are ballet shoes and tutus required. Kayla provides a workout that combines classical ballet moves with Barre and Pilates, using our portable barrres and our own bodies. 

Check out the Ballet Class here for more information, or just e-mail us directly!

If you are excited and want to sign up for a class, please visit our MindBody schedule to reserve your spot today. (Ballet classes are on Saturdays at 10:30 - a beautiful way to start your weekend) 


Here are a few pictures from our Back to Basics Ballet Workshop in April (for more, check out our Facebook page)



See you at the Barre!

Winter/ Spring 2015 at Kama Fitness






Brrrr..... it's been a cold winter! 


We've been trying to keep things warm and exciting at Kama Fitness. Our class schedule has expanded to include Aerial Yoga classes in the mornings (Wake Up Your Asana) and the Evening (Flex and Fly). We also are still offering our popular Aerial Barre and Aerial Pilates programs, and AcroFit for the bootcamp lovers. We also now offer Aerial Dance on the weekends, and Hip Hop Yoga for the dance lovers. And, of course, having some fun in between. 

During the last storm, our Instructors ventured out into the blizzard Juno and did a brief photshoot in the snow. 



Getting ready to head out in the storm!

Meanwhile, indoors - we have some exciting new workshops coming up in February and March. February we will be offering a Partner Yoga Workshop by our friends Jess and Dan from Self Awakening Yoga Studio in Salem, NH. 




Jess and Dan will be leading this fun workshop on Saturday, February 21 from 1-3 to get friends off their feet and into different yoga poses using two bodies. For more information, or to sign up, check us out here.


Kama Fitness is also very pleased to announce the newest member to our team - Kayla Lopez -  a student from the Boston Conservatory and a lifetime lover of Ballet and movement. Kayla will be offering an Adult Ballet class on Saturday mornings at Kama Fitness starting in April. This class has no required dress code, and is perfect for anyone who has done Ballet, or has no experience at all!




For a taste of Adult Ballet, we will be holding an intro Workshop to Adult Ballet on March 29, from 1-3pm.
