Maisah stumbled into yoga whilst looking to better maintain her body for her work as a modern dancer. After taking many a class that wasn't quite the right fit, she found her true love when she began to study Vinyasa. The linking of breath with a flowing practice really hit home for her dancing heart.
After completing her 200-Hour Vinyasa Certification in 2011 (Yoga to the People, NYC), she quit her 9-to-5 in 2012 to pursue dance and yoga more fully. Being unemployed gave her more time on her hands, which she used to delve into AcroYoga & Aerial Yoga. From 2012 to 2014, Maisah completed her Kid's Yoga (Alphabet Asana), Restorative Yoga (Mary Aranas), and Aerial Yoga Teacher Trainings (OFSY). During this time she was also slowly expanding her AcroYoga practice. In December 2015 she took the plunge and completed her AcroYoga Teacher Training (AcroYoga, Montréal).
At Om Factory she can be found teaching Aerial & AcroYoga classes that center on the breath & movement, safe alignment, and mindful progression with self-awareness. She firmly believes in “safety first”; when we take care of the body, it will take care of us!
Maisah frequently leads our monthly AcroYoga 101 workshop, as well as special aerial, restorative, and kids' workshops.
