These classes are unlike any of our other aerial classes! Aerial Yoga is a modern style of yoga that incorporates a low-hanging soft fabric hammock to explore alignment, release chronic tension, hang around upside down, and have fun! It’s appropriate for anyone including beginners with no yoga experience. For experienced yogis, aerial yoga will add a new dimension to complement your existing practice on the ground. For those with little or no yoga experience, aerial yoga is a great place to start. Every class includes decompression, supported inversions, core and upper body strengthening, deep relaxation, and fun! This class is appropriate for anyone whether or not you have previous yoga experience.
Circus Conditioning is essential. Regular conditioning will help you get the most out of your aerial classes, clarify your technique, improve your confidence and allows you to learn new material faster. A Circus Conditioning class consists of a cardiovascular warm up, flexibility training, guided drills, circuits utilizing floor exercises, and class concludes with open practice on the aerial silks and aerial hoop/lyra.
AERIAL Hoop & Silks CLASSES
If you have attended another training facility you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to get approval. Our Mindbody system will not allow students to sign up without being approved to do so. We encourage students to wear clothing that covers the backs of their knees and torso for all aerial classes, other than pole. This will help avoiding burns caused by friction with the fabric or hoop.
Aerial lyra (also known as aerial hoop) is a circular apparatus suspended from a single or double point. In this class you will learn the various techniques to enter and exit from the hoop along with conditioning, strength and flexibility exercises. After learning basic skills and conditioning, the class will gradually progress into building your strength, showcasing flexibility and learning flipping, turning, rolling, posing, and transitioning positions. Note: We require students to wear clothing that covers the legs, torso and arms for all aerial classes, other than pole. This will help avoiding burns caused by friction with the fabric or hoop.
In this class you will begin with flexibility, strength, and conditioning exercises that will help you feel comfortable in the air. You will work on basic climbing skills and will learn how to create “locks” around your body with the fabric.
