Silks ~ Sign Up

As class progresses students  learn more complex drops, wraps and rolls working safely at their own pace. All Levels classes contain students of beginning to advanced skills. As students gain strength and ability they are given the opportunity to learn aerial routines and test out of their level.

Static Trapeze/Lyra ~ Sign Up

Static Trapeze/Lyra class covers basic skills that build strength, flexibility and grace. You will learn a vocabulary of moves focusing on correct form, safety and technique. Lyra, or 'Aerial Hoop' is a metal circle that is suspended from a single point. Beginners start off learning the basics of spinning and the many ways to lift the body onto the hoop. As class progresses students will learn to climb, invert, roll and turn with grace and ease on this beautiful classic circus apparatus.

Aerial Yoga/Sling ~ Sign Up

Utilizing both traditional yoga poses and the skills of an aerialist this class takes your body through a safe exploration of flexibility and strenght. Made of the same fabric as aerial silks the sling, or 'aerial hammock' is suspended waist high over the mat. Working within each students ability we open the heart, rejuvenate the spirit and find relaxation in poses that may not be possible without the support of the fabric. More advanced yogis may find the deep stretching a challenge while those wanting a more gentle practice can find deep relaxation inside the fabric. This class is particularly well suited for beginners or those with physical limitations.
