Aerial Hammock Cirque & Conditioning Immersion

Learn to navigate the intricacies of aerial hammock in this unique 8-hour immersion that blends modern acrobatics with an eastern tradition of Qigong & partner massage.

 

Start the day with Qigong breath and movement before taking flight, to ground ourselves and center the mind. Qigong is a form of Chinese meditation & healing art that has been used by Eastern masters for thousands of years to help enhance the mind and body, and find inner peace. We will then move on to specific conditioning exercises with the fabric, designed to assist in performance of the Cirque elements.

 

Correct technique and proper form will be emphasized throughout the immersion to create good habits that will last. Partner spotting will be sprinkled throughout the day which will help students perform more challenging elements. Conditioning components we will focus on are pull-ups, straddle inversions, skin-the-cat, meat hooks and more. The spicy elements of Cirque will be intelligently woven into the day, progressively building in difficulty.

 

At the end of the day we will partner up for a sweet one-hour massage. Partners will take turns using techniques based on an integrative method of massage, combining elements of eastern and western traditions. 

 

Pre-Requisites:  5+ Aerial Yoga classes of any level & style.
