Aerial Yoga Foundations In the foundations session you will, learn how to choose an aerial hammock, in studio, that works best for your height; get acquainted with what its like to move in some familiar mat yoga poses with the support of the hammock; learn how to sit into and come out of the silk (because its kind of awkward at first) and be guided through some of the basic Aerial Yoga poses (including getting UPSIDE DOWN) in a slow, safe and, above all, FUN class setting! All levels welcome. No prior yoga or aerial yoga experience required. Recommended For: New to aerial, or want more time to learn some fundamental poses.
Float & Meditate Floating guided meditation in an aerial yoga swing is a unique type of meditation that combines the comfort and support of an aerial swing with the relaxation and visualization techniques of guided meditation. Floating guided meditation can be especially helpful for people with chronic pain, as it can provide relief from physical discomfort while promoting relaxation, mindfulness, and stress-reduction. Often supported by calming music and gentle movements to enhance the meditation experience, you may be asked to focus on your breath or visualize a peaceful scene. As you relax in the swing, you may gently sway with the movements of the swing, which can help to deepen your relaxation and enhance the feeling of floating.
Low Flow Aerial Yoga The practice involves the use of an aerial yoga hammock, which is a silk fabric loop that is suspended from the ceiling. During the class, the body is supported by the hammock, which allows for a deeper and more supported practice of yoga postures, stretches, and movements. Our low flow aerial yoga class is a type of aerial yoga that focuses on practicing yoga poses with a slower, more mindful movement. In this type of class, the movements are designed to be slow and fluid, helping you to deepen your breath and connect with the present moment. The aerial hammock is lower to the ground and is used as a prop to support the body and create traction in the joints, allowing for a safe and supported practice. The class typically begins with a warm-up to prepare the body and mind for the practice, followed by a series of slow, fluid movements that are performed in and around the hammock. The practice is designed to help students connect with their breath and move mindfully through each pose. The hammock provides support and stability, allowing students to explore challenging poses with greater ease and confidence. Low flow aerial yoga classes are suitable for all levels, including beginners, as we focus on building strength and flexibility slowly and safely. This is a unique and enjoyable class that offers a fun and challenging way to deepen your yoga practice and explore new possibilities in your body. Whether you are a seasoned yogi or a beginner, this style of yoga can help to improve your overall well-being, both on and off the mat.
Restorative Aerial Yoga Relax into the support of the hammock and allow the assistance of gravity to open up the body. Explore the deep healing benefits of a restorative practice as we slow down the body and mind. Restorative Aerial Yoga is designed for students of all levels looking to slow down their practice and use the hammock closer to the ground. Hammocks are hung low to the ground, and postures are held for longer periods of time. This will allow the body to surrender and release tension. The support of the hammock ensures proper alignment for a safe, healing practice.
Bungee Fitness Bungee is a stunning aerial art form that will give you the opportunity to both defy gravity and experience weightlessness. Students will manipulate the tension provided by the bungee cords against the floor to create beautiful, floating, and flowing movements in the air. Each participant will be suited up in their own bungee harness at the start of class and alternate in and out of their bungee point. Bungee lends itself to beautiful sequencing and dance-like movement, but don't let its beauty fool you — classes can also provide a unique and intense cardio workout! No Pre-Requisites! All levels of movers, dancers, or aerialists are welcome.

Bungee classes seem a little pricey... why?
This is a common question. The harness and bungee systems are very expensive, and thousands of dollars are invested into each. In addition, the bungees themselves are consumable, and must be replaced every few months to ensure consumer safety. Bungee classes around the country average $35 per class; we are charging just enough to cover expenses and provide this amazing practice because we believe in it wholeheartedly!

Participants may not have serious medical conditions, injuries, or recent surgeries, and participants may not be pregnant.
What if I must cancel my bungee class?
YES Aerial Fitness policy states that a six-hour notice is required for cancellation on reserved class spots. We ask that clients only register for classes they absolutely plan on attending. We do understand that sometimes life gets in the way, but due to the limited class spots or training sessions, late cancels or no-shows will lose that missed class.

If you choose to eat prior to class, please allow enough time for digestion. Eating a large meal immediately before class is NOT recommended.
