Aerial Yoga with Silk Hammocks
Step off your mat and learn to fly! Aerial Yoga is a powerfully therapeutic practice that combines the strength and grace of traditional asana with the ease of gravity assisted stretching, all in the comfort of silks. Whether you are new to the mat, or looking to deepen your floor practice, aerial asana will strengthen the arms and core while opening the hips and heart. Inversions have been called the fountain of youth, and they help to decompress the spine. The pressure of the fabric on the body helps to drain and circulate the lymph fluid, while opening the connective tissue.
We require that students new to the practice take at least one Aerial Yoga Level 1 introductory class as prerequisite to the drop-in, in order to become used to the silks and specialty inversions. Class size is limited to 10 participants, so register early! At least 12 hours notice is required for cancellation of reservation without additional charge-- $20 non-refundable drop-in is charged for all absences and late cancellations.
Aerial Workshop: Level 1
$35 | Specialty Prerequisite
Experience an entirely new way of extending your practice by utilizing the power of gravity and a soft hammock to increase your flexibility, balance, coordination, and strength. Find comfort upside down, discover new ways to release the connective tissue throughout the body, and experience weightlessness.
No experience necessary, this introductory workshop is appropriate for all body types and all levels of (in)experience. This is a prerequisite to our weekly drop-in class.
Note: Class size is limited to 11 students. NONREFUNDABLE PAYMENT is required for the waitlist with no space guaranteed-- if you do not clear the waitlist, the purchase may be applied to any future Aerial Workshop: Level 1 with space permitting. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are registering 2 or more people, call the studio to confirm your spots! Please arrive on time for class-- students will not be admitted to class more than 5 minutes after the scheduled start time.
