Share the Love this Valentine's

February is truly my favorite month of the year! One obvious reason is that my birthday is the 23rd. But another reason is Valentine's. I love the love.

Hang Out Yoga is all about spreading the love and taking time to love yourself as well. So I've put together some fun specials and events to celebrate. 

For the Woman in Your Life

GUYS! Here's where you pay attention! You cannot go wrong with ANY of these options. Don't waste your money on flowers that spoil, or meals that are delicious but gone in an hour. Give your woman a chance to feel good about herself and spend some much needed time to herself. 

**Order by Feb. 8 and get gift certificate and shirt custom wrapped. 

For the Adventurous Couple

Now, men, if you really want to step it up and get extra romance points. Schedule a spot for our Valentine's Day Partner Class! What does this entail? You, and your loved one will enjoy a very special, intimate class! Find and deepen your connection to yourself, your breath, and your partner. Bring your inner child, sense of adventure, and an open mind. Together you will spend 90 minutes of exploration moving together, doing partner stretching and awakening the core. Class will conclude with you nestled together in an aerial cocoon. Leave feeling relaxed, renewed and connected to your love. Take your deepened connection home with you — the perfect recipe for an intimate evening together! No previous aerial experience necessary! A yoga or physical practice of any type is helpful. Held on Wednesday, Feb. 14, either 5:30pm or 7pm. You must prebook here or via the Mind Body app. 

For You and Your Bestie


Ok, but maybe you are single, or you know your significant other well enough to know he's not going to get any of the hints above. It's possible that mystery filled chocolates and romantic candlelit dinners are totally your thing, but if you're dreaming about celebrating the love you have for your girlfriends, Galentine's Day is it! Basically, it's like Valentine's Day, only instead of celebrating the love you have for your significant other, you spend it with your best girlfriends, who are, after all, your soul mates, and therefore deserve a holiday all to themselves, too.

So grab your bestie, and get ready to stretch, laugh, engage the body and build some trust in this fun 90 minute class! Held on Tuesday, Feb. 13, either 5:30pm or 7pm. You must prebook here or via the Mind Body app. No previous aerial experience necessary! A yoga or physical practice of any type is helpful. 

Hang Out Yoga with Erika Bennett

Article by ValdostaToday.com

For Erika Bennett, Owner and Instructor of Hang Out Yoga, LLC., her passion for aerial yoga elevated after taking a class in Tampa, Florida.

“I needed more aerial yoga in my life and knew others in our area would enjoy it just as much as I did. So after a lot of behind the scenes work
and research, Hang Out Yoga was born,” says Erika.

Opening Doors

When one door closes, another opens... all you have to do is walk in. 

I walked into this journey with no expectations, just a little faith. That faith has made me acutely aware of divine intervention, which in this case has played out like the butterfly effect.

It just takes one action. One decision to do something different. Setting in motion situations and more decisions as you proceed along your path.

There are a few concepts I've really tried to embrace lately and I'll share them below.

The feels

I began this aerial yoga journey by taking a class. One class and I fell in love… because it made me feel good.

Maya Angelou said it best, “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

This post is all about the feels.
