MEET THE TEACHER

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 Hélène Kerhervé Saturday, June 24 @ Om Factory Fashion District,

in cooperation with Om Factory, at a Vinyasa Flow class for a cause.

FUNDRAISER FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

This benefit class will be a sweet and loving 90-minute Vinyasa Flow, allowing plenty of time to explore the body & mind with wonder, curiosity, and compassion. We often take for granted our ability to self-reflect and understand ourselves, our emotions, our bodies, and the world that surrounds us.

For those diagnosed with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) or another developmental disorder, such insight may be a difficult or impossible process, affecting cognitive processing as well as social interaction. The Sherkow Center for Child Development is an organization that seeks to change the lives of children diagnosed with ASD or any other developmental disability.

All levels are welcome — no experience necessary!


every dollar raised counts!

Even if you can't make the event, help us make a difference in the lives of those in need.

Consider making a donation to The Sherkow Center for Child Development.

MEET THE TEACHER

Born in France, Hélène discovered the beautiful practice of Yoga in 2002 while living in Tokyo. She believes that yoga develops strength, flexibility, focus, as well as physical & spiritual balance. Her classes are vigorous & challenging, though she takes care to adapt to every student’s physical capabilities, focusing on breath, alignment, and using clear, sensitive guidance. Hélène is certified as an E-RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance® and she has been teaching yoga for 10 years. At Om Factory, she teaches Vinyasa Yoga, Aerial Yoga, and Restorative Yoga.

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.

FUNDRAISER FOR SHANTI BHAVAN, INDIA

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!

Consider making a donation to Shanti Bhavan Children's Project.

Even if you can't make the event, please help us make a difference in the lives of those in need.

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

MEET THE TEACHER

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.
