We will explore the sling as its own aerial apparatus and shy away from its traditional use for aerial yoga, along with traditional aerial silks. Students will learn climbs, drops, flips, locks, transitions, choreography and conditioning tools used to enhance their aerial skills on any apparatus at their own pace. This class builds on skill progression and flow sequencing each week, creating opportunities for unique choreography and self expression.

Missed classes may be made up in any drop in class or open gym. Make ups must be used during the current session as they do expire at the end of the series and will not roll over to the next one.

Students are strongly encouraged and expected to move through the levels slowly and at their own pace. Students should plan to stay at each level long enough to build the body strength and skill level necessary to master all poses safely and expertly before moving onto the next level.

FAQ’s

What should I wear?

Leotards, unitards, tights, and/or other tight-fitting clothing, etc….Yoga pants work great, and you want a top that isn’t going to ride up over your head when you invert. You will want to cover the midsection and the backs of the knees. Please do not wear jewelry as it may snag or rip the silks. No shoes needed and remember your water bottle!’
