The best decision of Liz Minnick’s life was to run away and join the circus!

Working with Cirque du Soleil and their outreach program Cirque du Monde brought Liz all over the world and eventually landed her at Om Factory in New York. Liz teaches aerial yoga, dance, fitness, and Lyra (her primary performance apparatus) to both children and adults. Teaching aerial acrobatics to children inspired her to participate in the development of Om Factory’s Kids' Aerial Yoga Program.

Join Amanda McDonald Saturday, August 5 @ Om Factory Fashion District, in cooperation with Om Factory, 

at a Vinyasa Flow class benefiting some of India's most vulnerable & disadvantaged children.


Who says "being the change you want to see in the world" can't start with a little self care? This workshop will flow you into relaxation, with a well-rounded vinyasa practice wrapped up with a sweet restorative dessert — all in benefit of the Shanti Bhavan Children's Project.  

Shanti Bhavan is residential school in India whose mission is to adequately develop the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children of India’s “lowest caste” by providing them with a world class education and instilling globally-shared values to enable them to aspire to careers and professions of their choice.

Amanda volunteered at Shanti Bhavan in 2009, and it remains one of the best experiences of her life. Her class of students is now successfully college bound, and it costs about $3000 per student per year to send them to school. She is holding this workshop to raise money for these amazing students. Learn more about the important work of Shanti Bhavan at www.shantibhavanonline.org

All levels are welcome — no experience necessary!

every dollar raised counts!

We suggest a donation of $30, $50 or $100.

Amanda has been practicing yoga since her teenage years, but got serious after moving to NYC to pursue a career in musical theatre. After realizing she would rather be at the ashram than on the stage, she ended up moving to India to follow her path. She has been teaching full-time since she graduated from the OFSY's 200-Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training and has completed trainings at Studio Anya, Yogamaya, The Breathing Project, and Yoga Union. She co-created OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training curriculum and continues to teach Aerial Yoga classes and lead trainings at the Om Factory. Amanda loves the lessons yoga teaches us about life and teaches mostly to see students gain confidence both on and off of the mat.
