Your Teachers


Lindsay Nova

Lindsay is a traveling yoga teacher and performance artist who believes in empowering people to live their dreams. No dream is too big! She began her practice as a teenager in dance school and went onto to receive her yoga teaching certificate in 2007 among other studies in Pilates and Reiki. Her greatest inspirations are moving the body, which she loves to do through vinyasa and as a life-long aerial arts dancer. She has created this program to combine the beauty and grace of breath and movement through vinyasa and aerial yoga as a method for healing and overcoming limiting beliefs.

Manjeet Mathur

Manjeet grew up in New Delhi, India and came to yoga with a background as a dancer. He has over 3000 teaching hours and enjoys sharing his heart-centered mindfulness meditations as well as yoga philosophy on yoga courses. He has a particular focus on conscious breathwork, tantra, and making yogic philosophy accessible and understandable for all. His priority is to share from the heart and to the heart of all, to make the sharing circle bigger and let the love and light spread all over the world! Manjeet will be teaching yoga philosophy and evening meditations on this course.


Customized Instruction For Every Student

I’ll work with each of you during and after the training, to help you enjoy the experience and be able to share it with your own students.


What People Are Saying

Lindsay Nova makes the course fun with her playful energy and her professional instruction ensure that we are all safe.

Some have asked me, “Why aerial yoga? Why not regular yoga” This approach is much gentler for those who have had injuries and surgeries, but it is still hard work, making the body stronger while lengthening muscles and tendons to help avoid future injuries. For me, it is like being back in the dance studio, only up a little higher… which is way more fun!

Restorative aerial yoga, which uses a lower height, is also good for people who suffer from chronic pain issues such as fibromyalgia or arthritis. I have seen my body evolve into a much healthier being with not only a stronger core but with more muscular legs and arms, too. I’m very pleased with my progress and my healthier me!

Elena Gianoni

Lindsay is an extremely knowledgeable instructor, she is kind, open and understanding. The environment she created was so supportive, and it was honestly some of the best weeks of my life. I look forward to hopefully one day furthering my skill set with her. Thank you again Lindsay!
