Aerial YOga Classes
We have aerial yoga classes for all levels of experience. We encourage you to begin your aerial yoga journey with either an Aerial-Flow Fusion or Restorative Aerial class. Once you feel ready, you are welcome to join our Aerial Level I classes, which include more inversions and strength-based transitions. Even if you are advanced in standard yoga, we recommend starting with these beginners classes for your comfort and more ease in your practice, as you are learning.
Aerial FLOW FUSION YOGA
This hybrid class blends together the familiarity of yoga on the mat with aerial. Using the silk hammock as a prop, students will have access to their own “personal assistant” offering deeper stretching in your warriors, support in your backbends and added balance in standing poses like half-moon or dancer. This class is ideal for vinyasa students who are looking to deepen their mat practice through exploration of familiar poses with the aid of a fun prop as well as for students who want to begin to become more comfortable in the aerial silk.
This class is paced slower to allow deep stretching and strength building, while emphasizing breath connection to the pose. An opportunity to advance your inversion practice using the silk as a prop will also be offered for those who are interested. Class ends in a blissful savasana, cocooned in a hammock.
Recommended For: All levels or new-to-aerial, no previous aerial experience required but students should feel comfortable in a regular vinyasa flow class
Restorative Aerial Yoga: release, rekindle, refresh
This is our gentle and therapeutic version of aerial yoga. The extra support of a silk hammock allow the body to completely soften, surrender and invert effortlessly. Like classical restorative yoga, this class balances the elements of a slow-paced asana flow, pranayam, and powerful guided visualization enhancing awareness of the internal sensations present in the body. However, a levitated yoga practice reaches muscle groups that cannot be accessed on the mat, providing a deeper dimension into organic exploration in each pose and enhances stretches and twists. Practicing while levitated also calms the nervous system, and boosts the immune system.
Students will enjoy a tranquil candle-lit, mantra-infused practice, grounding their energy while off of the ground. You'll explore how to remain in a meditative mindset while in motion. Students will finish their practice with a magical savasana experience, floating peacefully inside of a silk cocoon.
Recommended For: All levels and new-to-aerial
Aerial Yoga LEVEL I
Once you've taken at least one Aerial Flow Fusion or Restorative Aerial Yoga class, and feel comfortable in an aerial silk, you are ready to try Aerial Yoga Level I Beginners Class. This class is for beginners to aerial, or a relaxing way for advanced practitioners to stretch out and relax at a slower pace than advanced classes.
