Aerial Yoga combines traditional mat yoga with postures that are suspended partially or fully in the air by a soft silk hammock. The use of gravity allows the body to find correct postural alignment, to release, realign, and lengthen more efficiently, and furthermore invites in a spark of creativity and playfulness. Accessible to all skill levels, this is bound to be an unforgettable experience…
What we love:
- This is a gentle practice that can be adapted to any skill level
- The support of the silks allows for a deeper connection with each pose
- Dre is a very warm and caring instructor and her breadth of experience carries into each class
- Both men and women really enjoy this style of yoga practice

Meet your instructor:
Andrea Fors (aka ‘Dre’) discovered her love for aerial dance in 1998, while attending the University of Georgia. There, she apprenticed under the directorship of Susan Murphy, one of the first people to develop the art of dance-trapeze, and there, she found a love for how physical strength and art/emotion collide.
She went on to help open one of the first dedicated aerial dance studios in the country, Canopy Studio, and became a member of Canopy’s first Aerial Dance Repertoire Company from 2000-2005. During this time, she spent countless hours training on various equipment including silks, duo trap, lyra, and harness with Elsie and Serenity Smith, who performed for Cirque du Soleil, and currently own the New England Center for Circus Arts.
Andrea is dedicated to helping the community of Maui and those who visit our beautiful island to connect back to themselves and to those around them, and the community. Her company, Uplift Maui, is founded on the premises that we “rise by lifting others” (Robert Ingersoll). A play on words for literally lifting people into the air as well as in so many other ways…physically, nutritionally, emotionally, and spiritually…to name a few.
