Aerial Flow is a practice that combines elements of vinyasa yoga and aerial dance. Our classes take traditional yoga poses and incorporate the aid and support of the aerial hammock to allow greater stability and ease throughout your practice.
In this class, we’ll move through creative flow sequences, both in and out of the hammocks, transition to balance and strength poses, and then explore a few basic aerial “tricks”. Some of these movements will allow you to flip upside down, others will have you swinging from side to side, or allow you to stand suspended in air. And just in case you’re wondering, the hammocks and equipment have been load tested to 1,000 pounds!
Level 2 classes will move more deeply into increasingly challenging poses, backbends, splits and aerial strength poses which will require flexibility, strength and body awareness. While assists will be given in this class, students should be able to invert comfortably and require no aid in successfully completing angel flips.
Every class ends with a 10-15 minute savasana where you’ll be cocooned in your hammock, suspended in air, fully supported, surrounded by soothing music, and maybe even tucked in with a blanket.
Class Prerequisites: Students should have taken a minimum of 3 Level 1 classes (or have permission of the instructor), be very comfortable with inversions and require no assistance for “angel flips”. 6 months consistent yoga practice is recommended before taking this class.
Aerial Yoga classes take place at the Teacher Training Institute and require Pre-Registration. Please show up for class 15 minutes early to allow time to adjust your hammock height.
A $20 no show fee will be charged to all membership clients if they preregister and then don’t show up. If students no show and are paying the drop-in rate no refunds will be given.
Contraindications: Please consult with a doctor if you have any of these conditions. While this is an extensive list, there may be conditions that the authors are unaware of and in no way is comprehensive.
