Beginner Aerial Yoga and Placement (For All New Students in Our Studio)

At Aerial Moon we require all first-time students to take our Beginner Aerial Yoga class to evaluate their fitness level and customize their experience at our studio. This class will train you to confidently get in and out of the silk hammocks, invert upside down, and teach you the protocols to ensure you are practicing safely. If a student demonstrates the ability to successfully achieve foundational techniques (inverting and climbing) we will move you to the level that best suits your aerial goals.

 

Aerial Strength and Serenity (Level One)

Ignite your core, challenge your upper-body, and feel the satisfaction of gaining strength like no other. Find balance in the mind/body and become acquainted with hidden muscles. We will perform a combination of power asanas (poses) and at the end of class use deep stretches to create peace and serenity. This class is all about power and bliss. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class. 

 

Aerial Grounded and Healing (Level One)

This class slows down the pace and the hammocks are suspended close to the floor. This is an opportunity to stretch, float, relax, and replenish the spine. This class features slower longer posture holds to gently develop flexibility of the joints and connective tissues. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class. 

 Aerial Shakti (Level One)

In this class we begin with far East Asian (Vietnamese) Kundalini Yoga techniques. We wake up the energy centers in the body known as “chakras” then put them to work practicing power asanas on the mat before performing aerial conditioning. This class is based in Raja (Royal) Yoga and Martial Arts and is calisthenic by nature. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class.

Aerial Sculpt (Level Two)

In this invigorating aerial conditioning class, we focus heavily on strength. The class consists of drills in the fabric borrowed heavily from Pilates focusing on core, legs, and arms. There are 3-5 circuits depending on how quickly the class moves along. Inversions and stretches in the fabric are used as a break at the end of each circuit/series. This aerial class will help you build lean strong muscles and leave you feeling empowered. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class.

 

Aerial Ananda (Level Two)

Find your joy! This class will feature energizing music in an upbeat atmosphere to awaken your mind and body. Class begins by grounding and centering then several rounds of Sun Salutations for conditioning. Be prepared to step it up with planks, pull-ups, and a few flips and tricks. At the end we will explore more breathwork before savasana. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class.

Aerial Dance (Level Two)

This class is choreography based. We start by warming up on the mat and in the hammock. After warmups we choose one song to play throughout the class while crafting an aerial dance on and off the silks. You do not need dance experience but all level one aerial techniques must be mastered before taking this class. All new students must take a Beginner Aerial Yoga class for a fitness evaluation before taking this class.

 

Yin on the Mat (No Aerials)

In stillness healing takes place. Yin practice emphasizes loosening connective tissues in the hips, pelvis, and lower back while stretching muscles. We find stability and focus by holding postures from 3-5 minutes each. Relax, let go, breathe. This class welcomes everyone regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

 

HoopYogini (No Aerials)

Experience a full body practice that incorporates traditional Hatha yoga postures, breathwork, and mindful meditation using an adult size hula hoop. The journey starts seated then takes you through a signature “Spinal Awakening Series”. Find yourself grounded in the center of your own personal universe. Class will end in savasana on your mat. Try something new and fall in love with yoga all over again. Cotton clothing is best for this class, giving you more connection to your hoop. This class welcomes everyone regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

 

Lazy Monkey Yoga (No Aerials)

Beginning students, as well as masters, will enjoy this laid-back flexibility training. The entire class happens on the ground with plenty of time to breathe deeply into the muscles and joints. By the end of class, you should feel like you experienced a Shiatsu massage. We also incorporate self-massage and acupressure into our class. This class welcomes everyone regardless of fitness level or yoga experience.

 

OmAzing Tweens Ages 8-13 (All Levels - Aerial)

Yoga provides tweens with essential life skills and the tools to build self-esteem and confidence. Class will be held in a space which tweens can freely explore ideas, share emotions, feeling confident, and inspired by one another. At Aerial Moon we care about our kids and provide a safe nurturing space for them to grow in their wellness journey. All of this to keep it fun, interesting lighthearted and at times full of laughter. (Sorry, no adults are allowed in this class)
