About the Instructors:
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!

OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training remains the second best decision of Liz Minnick’s life. The first was of course to run away and join the circus. Liz has been playing in the air for the last ten years and loving every single moment of it. Working with Cirque du Soleil and their outreach program Cirque du Monde brought her all over the world and landed her at OM Factory in 2009 while on tour. She was thrilled to later return to Manhattan and teach at the studio that she loves so much. Her experience in teaching children aerial acrobatics has inspired her to help develop Om Factory’s Kid’s Aerial Yoga Program.

In Spring 2016, Liz traveled to Om Factory Seoul to lead our first ever Kid's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training. While there, she also led Aerial Dance, Advanced Aerial & Lyra Teacher Trainings. Her Asian adventures continue in Vietnam, where she is bringing Aerial Yoga to the newest Om Factory location: Hanoi. Liz will assist Kevin Bigger with the first Aerial Yoga Teacher Training at Om Factory Hanoi. In addition to teaching aerial yoga, dance, and fitness to children and adults, she also teaches Lyra which has been her primary performance apparatus for her aerial career.
