Class Descriptions

Aerial Foundation

No matter your level of experience in traditional yoga, dance, or cheer-leading, or fitness, if you have never taken an Aerial Yoga Class, please start with at least 1 Foundations class.  This class is designed to familiarize students with the basic building blocks of an Aerial Yoga practice. Students will learn how to balance using the fabric as support, flip in the air, and gain body awareness and comfort in supported inversions.

This class is recommended for students who may feel unsure about going upside down or have never taken an Aerial Yoga class. 

Aerial Dream

Reiki infused gentle practice with your softer side. We will open each Chakra slowly into a deeper meditation helping to balance your emotional body and restore peaceful serenity within. This will be a slower practice focusing more on realigning your heart with your mind and grounding back into a better self. We will concentrate on connecting breath to movement for a deeper connection to self. Using the hammock as a support we will flow into each posture effortlessly and end with a longer Yoga Nidra (guided meditation). This class is perfect if you are looking for a relaxing, meditative practice aimed more toward healing and emotional transformation. 

 Yin on the Mat

In the stillness healing takes place.  A Yin practice emphasizes the connective tissue of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine.  It draws your awareness away from the muscles and deeper into the bones.  Find stillness and focus in this gentle mat practice as the body creates space, holding postures from 3-5 minutes.  Relax, let go, breathe.

This class welcomes everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

Restorative Aerial Yin & Healing

To slow down the pace, hammocks are suspended closer to the ground level.  This is an opportunity to stretch, float upside down, relax, and rehydrate the spine and the mind.  Class features slower longer posture holds to gently develop flexibility and length of the joints and connective tissue.

This class welcomes everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

Balance Board Yoga

This specialty class ignites your core and challenges every student to get strong and find balance within the body & mind — while balancing on the board.  Expect to acquaint yourself with muscles you never knew you had and leave invigorated and walking tall. Build body awareness as we get creative.

This class welcomes everyone, regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

Aerial Strength and Serenity

All are welcome to ignite your core and upper-body to challenge yourself to get strong.  Find balance in the mind and body and get acquainted with some hidden muscles.  The combination of powerful poses, softened at the end with the deep stretching creates a fulfilling and serene experience. Blissful is the word.

The class moves more quickly and you must be able to get in and out of basic inversions without guidance.

Restrictions: Recent spinal, wrist, or shoulder injuries, surgeries, hernias, and recent wrist/shoulder concerns.

Aerial Blast

Let’s change the pace.  This class will feature fun music, rolls and flips.  It will begin with personal grounding and allows plenty of time for play and exploration.  This is an all level class, however be prepared to step it up a bit with planks and pull-ups.

This class is recommended to students who – have taken Foundations in the last 2 months, feel confident and secure in the hammock.
