We fancy ourselves the funky kid on the Temescal block. We work hard, sweat buckets, and laugh till our bellies hurt. We mindfully test the edges of the physical yoga practice, shake our moneymakers, test our mettle on the black and yellow TRX straps, fly on aerial yoga silks, and enjoy a diverse, energetic, and fearless community.
Community is built from the energy of many dreamers. The instructors, staff, and students at Flying are passionate, inspired, and dedicated visionaries. We are teachers, doctors, parents, students, community activists, recovering gym rats, recovering rat race runners, and beyond. We would love to have your voice in the mix.

Laura Camp, ERYT (Owner, Director) began movement training in childhood, and was a professional contemporary dancer for 15 years. In the late 90's, a dance injury led her to yoga. She was mentored by Robert Boustany in Houston, a physicist who had been teaching an eclectic blend of Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Qigong since the early 70's. Laura began her teaching practice in 1998, and she enjoys uniting classical hatha yoga with the dynamics of contemporary dance, the core integration of Russian and Chinese acrobatics, the body tension principles of rock climbing and circus aerials, the softness of release technique, and the mindfulness of Vipassana meditation. She co-directed Monkey Yoga Shala from from 2002 to early 2010; leads retreats, workshops, and 200 hour teacher trainings; and opened Flying Yoga in 2010.
Rebecca is a holistic health guide and healing artist facilitating explorations of expansion through sound, movement, and meditation, the core tenants of her latest teaching synthesis, TantraFlow. She is clinically trained in nutritional science, health behavior and functional medicine, and has been teaching yoga and meditation for over a decade. Using a synthesis of modalities, she curates unique experiences of embodiment practices at the intersection of science and spirituality, informed by the tantric path of Kashmir Shaivism, Ayurveda, sound healing, indigenous wisdom, and a variety of other scientific and spiritual nodes. Each experience is designed to ultimately support integrated health and wellbeing, and a reconnection to essential nature.
