AERIAL YOGA

Experience a unique yoga practice using a fabric hammock to support, tone and stretch the body as it moves through yoga poses and inversions

Class variety changes from time to time so check back often

Please read our COVID aerial policies here.

Aerial Basics

For those brand new to aerial or simply needing a slower moving aerial class, our basics class is a perfect option. While the class pace is slower and poses are simpler this class will still be challenging and offer all the same benefits of strengthening, stretching and inversions as from our other aerial classes. If you have any specific issues or injuries you are managing through, please let the instructor know at the start of class.

Please note, this class is 60 minutes.

Aerial Yoga All Levels

This unique 75 minute yoga class makes use of a fabric hammock to enhance your practice by providing gentle support or increasing the intensity of traditional poses. Each class will allow you an opportunity to invert in the hammock and experience the benefits of hanging upside down, reversing blood flow in the body and decompressing the spine.

Aerial Sculpt

Time to build that upper body strength you've always wanted, tone your core and sculpt those arms, glutes and legs!

This 75 minute aerial class has an increased focus on strength building and toning the entire body using just the hammock and your body weight. After a warm up, move your body through a conditioning sequence to power up your muscles and get the heart rate going. Inversions and yummy stretches will be sprinkled throughout class so you leave feeling powerful and lengthened.

This class is open to all levels. You will be challenging yourself with the exercises but can go at your own pace and make modifications or rest as needed.
