When did you fall in love with aerial yoga?
I fell in love with aerial yoga in 2014 in one aerial yoga workshop that led to teacher training course and then in Autumn of 2014, I opened the first aerial yoga studio “CamiYoga” in Lithuania (IG @camiyoga.lt). But my yoga journey started over a decade ago, in my 20s I used to dance contemporary dance and practice taichi, then eventually I enrolled into yoga world through meditation and breathing exercises. I practiced mostly hatha and ashtanga yoga and finished Shivananda TTC and Advanced course in India (E-RYT500). So, taichi taught me about subtlety of the inner energy, while dancing was my true meditation through the expression of your authentic movement and yoga became my true path as a student and as a teacher. But as a teacher I was still searching for my own style to add everything in one and aerial yoga made it happen! It combines everything in one: the wide possibilities of the body expression in the air, yoga structure, awakening of childlike feeling and creativity while floating up in the air in antigravity sensation!
