Are you ready to step up your Aerial Hammock game? Come fly in this class designed to build your aerial strength, endurance, and technical skill. Class will focus on specialized conditioning that teaches your body how to engage against the fabric in order to find more fluid movement through sequences. Progressions and transitions that keep you in the air for the majority of your class will push you to build increased endurance. Through a deeper exploration of how tricks should safely begin and end, you'll discover the technique each skill requires within your body's own momentum and striking force. This class will offer you a fun, highly motivated, and supportive environment to work the knots out of your hammock practice.
• At least 5 Aerial Yoga 2 or Circus Level 1 (or higher) classes, recently.
Or similar level of experience from an out-of-town facility.
• Ability to complete 1 full pull-up, 5 full push-ups, and hold plank for 30 seconds.
• Ability to invert in the air without assistance.
A restorative style class designed for students of all levels looking to slow down their practice and use the aerial fabric closer to the ground. If you've tried Aerial Yoga and you love it but could do without all those pull-ups and planks, OR if you've never touched an aerial fabric but you dream of floating upside down — this class is for you.
Focus on using the fabric to work out the kinks in all those hard to reach areas of tension in the legs, pelvis, and spinal column. We'll warm-up and stretch both in and out of the fabric, while taking our time to rejuvenate the body, rehydrate the spine, and bring blood to the brain. At the end of class, expect a long, loving Savasana, before we turn you back upright and send you off refreshed and ready to conquer your week. All levels are welcome.
Aerial Mellow Flow classes are not on the schedule at this time.
