Both Aerial Yoga and Trapeze Yoga practice Yoga inspired poses and inversions (head below heart level) with the addition of a yoga sling as a prop. Trapeze Yoga additionally incorporates the trapeze handles, bringing in more of a suspension type strength training. Both classes are easily modified for the beginner!
Previous yoga experience is not necessary to enjoy an Aerial or Trapeze yoga class. In fact it can be easier than normal yoga! The trapeze/hammock acts like a support whenever you require it, almost like having your own personal yoga teacher giving you assistance throughout the entire yoga class! Another advantage of having the support of the hammock is that 90% of students are able to complete more challenging poses, such as handstands!
Yes. Our Aerial/Trapeze classes are private bookings only. Please contact us to reserve your class for up to six attendees. Larger group options are available. Contact us for more information.
All jewelry items must be removed before participating. A t-shirt may be preferred to cover the armpit area, and leggings are advised to avoid the hammock rubbing on the skin and creating irritation. Leggings are also preferred to avoid loose leg opening from sliding around and to prevent tangling in the hammock. You may wear socks or practice in bare feet.
As with all forms of exercise, anyone with a health issue or physical limitation should consult his/her doctor before starting a new program. Yoga is no exception. Below you will find a list of contraindications that should be reviewed and considered before attending an Aerial Yoga class.
An individual can reserve a one-on-one experience with a certified instructor for $25. Couples are $35, and a class of 3 or more is $15 per person.
We recommend giving yourself 2 hours before class without eating. Hydration is important, however, so drink your water! Coming on a full stomach could induce nausea and acid reflux, as there is a lot of movement and inversions (head below feet).
