Adult Aerial

Participants will challenge themselves both physically and mentally on the aerial apparatus and experience a great full body workout that builds strength and flexibility. Learning elements of contemporary circus and dance, participants will discover how to develop and create movements at different levels and will experiment with a variety of movements above, on and under each prop. Participants will use different props such as the aerial hoop, silks, cocoon and trapeze. This class will also feature body awareness and conditioning activities that will assist in the creation of aerial routines. This class is suitable for all fitness levels and body types and classes will be adjusted to fit the needs of each skill level.

(NEW!) Handstand

See the world from a different perspective in our new handstand class! In this open level class, participants will start by learning the basics, including facing the fear of being upside down, and will progress to more advanced practice, such as moving legs and even one arm while doing a handstand. This class allows participants to practice mindfulness in a different way while still exercising the body, and teaches how to find balance not only in practice, but in life. This class is suitable for all body types and fitness levels.

Classes run for 12 weeks.

Handstand class will be held Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm.
