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!

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"
