LEVEL 1  /  basics

No matter your level of experience in traditional yoga, aerial dance, modern dance, or cheerleading camp, if you’ve never taken an Aerial Yoga class before, please start with Level 1! Level 1 classes are designed to familiarize students with the building blocks of an Aerial Yoga practice. Students will learn how to balance using the fabric as support, flip in the air, and position the hammock in the right spot to not lose their lunch in down dog. This class also helps students gain body awareness and comfort in supported inversions. 

 

Aerial Yoga Level 1 is recommended for students who:

  • Have taken 3 or fewer Aerial Yoga classes
  • Have little, or no experience doing mat-based yoga
  • Wish to build basic strength & flexibility during
    slow-moving, alignment-oriented flow
  • Are not familiar with terms like “Front Hip Lean” or “Upper Back Lean."

LEVEL 2  /  intermediate

So, you’ve mastered the basics, conquered your fear of inverting in the hammock, and no longer freeze when told to hook your knees through the fabric? Awesome! You are probably ready for a Level 2 Class. Level 2 students learn how to use the hammock for acrobatic-style balancing while integrating more flips & cirque into their Aerial Yoga practice. This class will challenge you to develop increased strength and flexibility, while you learn to flow through multiple poses without ever stepping your feet down to rest.

 

If you enjoy the flow and pace of a Level 2 Aerial Yoga class but want to challenge yourself with harder conditioning and trick options, then try one of our Level 2/3 Aerial Yoga classes!  Suited for first time Level 2 practitioners as well as seasoned Level 3 aerial yoga students, this class has something for everyone.  Prerequisites for Level 2 Aerial Yoga apply. 

 

Students taking Aerial Yoga Level 2 must:

  • Have taken a minimum of 5 Aerial Yoga classes recently at Om Factory
    or have equivalent experience with aerial hammock
  • Be able to invert with the hammock at the sacrum with no instruction
  • Be able to perform assisted pull-ups with good form
  • Be able to perform front and back balances 

*We do not recommend this class for students who have had recent injuries to or surgeries on their spine, wrist or shoulder. Please consult your doctor prior to enrolling.


LEVEL 3  /  advanced

When going upside down feels like a regular day to you, Level 2 tricks feel basic,
and you know your favorite variations with your eyes closed, you need to up the ante. Level 3 is the class for you! Come ready to challenge your flexibility, strength, sequencing, transitions and cirque tricks to the max. Remember when your feet were on the floor all of the time? Those days are past! Prepare to expand your physical & mental horizons and wind down into the most well deserved savasana you can imagine.

 

Aerial Yoga Level 3 is recommended for students who:

  • Have completed at least 7 Aerial Yoga Level 2 classes
  • Are able to invert in the air
  • Are able to easily perform L-shaped handstands,
  • Are able to do unsupported pull ups (without feet) 
  • Are able to hold a flexed-arm hang for at least 30 seconds

Instructor permission is needed to waive these requirements.

 

*We do not recommend this class for students who have had recent injuries to or surgeries on their spine, wrist or shoulder. Please consult your doctor prior to enrolling.


CORe  /  Mixed LEVEL

This specialty Aerial Yoga Core class ignites your core and challenges every student to get strong and find balance within the body and mind - while balancing in the hammock! Expect to acquaint yourself with muscles you never knew you had and leave invigorated and walking tall. This class is accessible to students across a variety of skill levels and options will be offered as your strength and confidence in the hammock grow. Aerial Yoga Core, however, is not appropriate for first-time flyers.  Please take at least one Level 1 class to acquaint yourself with Om Factory Aerial Yoga prior to enrolling.

 

Prior to taking Aerial Yoga Core, students must:

  • Have taken at least one Aerial Yoga Class at Om Factory or have equivalent experience with aerial hammock
  • Be able to invert with hammock at the sacrum with minimal instruction
  • Understand how to properly wrap fabric around the wrists, hips & upper back

AERIAL MELLOW FLOW

Aerial Yoga Mellow Flow is a restorative style of class designed for students of all levels who are looking to slow down their practice and use the Aerial fabric closer to the ground. If you've tried a few Aerial Yoga classes and you love them but could do without all those pull-ups and planks, or you've never actually touched an Aerial fabric but you dream of floating upside down this class is for you.

This class will 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 completely refreshed and ready to conquer your week.

 

Pre-requisites: 

  • Open to students of all levels.
