Inside Aerial Fit: Aerial Slings

We’re hard at work creating a short video series that gives a glimpse inside Aerial Fit. We often get questions about our aerial classes, and these videos will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in each class we offer. The third in the series is Aerial Slings. Aerial Sling combines the best qualities of aerial silks, aerial hoop, and trapeze and is a great place for beginners to start an aerial practice. Slings are made of the same fabric we use for aerial silks, but both ends are rigged to a single point so there’s a loop at the bottom, which gives you something to sit, hang, swing or spin in! The loop is typically hung at about waist or chest height for beginners, and more advanced students can begin to work higher as interest and ability allows. In your first few classes you can expect to learn different ways to hang, including hanging upside down, and different ways to move and wrap yourself up in the fabric. You can eventually progress to learning small dives, drops, and flips, and putting together beautiful choreography and sequences in the air. Beginners love the sling because there is a […]

Inside Aerial Fit: Circus Workout

We’re hard at work creating a short video series that gives a glimpse inside Aerial Fit. We often get questions about our aerial classes, and these videos will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in each class we offer. The second in the series is Circus Workout. Circus Workout is a fun and different way to improve strength and flexibility all with a taste of adventure. This class isn’t just for aerialists, acrobats or physical performers. Anyone can get long-lasting benefits from a circus workout. This workout targets more than the upper body. It’s going to strengthen the full body, legs, core, back and arms. Classes alternate between ground exercises and exercises on the aerial apparatuses. Although every class is different, you can expect to work with aerial silks, trapeze, sling and aerial hoop. You’ll build strength quickly by working with your body weight on and off the ground. There is no aerial or circus experience needed to take your first class. We recommend a weekly practice, either in conjunction with, or without, our other aerial skills focused classes. Please show up at least 10 minutes early for your first class. Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothing that covers […]

Inside Aerial Fit: Aerial Yoga

We’re hard at work creating a short video series that gives a glimpse inside Aerial Fit. We often get questions about our aerial classes, and these videos will give you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in each class we offer. The first in the series is Aerial Yoga. Aerial Yoga is a type of yoga that uses a low-hanging fabric trapeze, called a hammock or sling, to suspend, invert, and challenge familiar yoga postures. The sling is hung at waist-height, and body weight is shared between the sling and the floor, or suspended entirely in the sling. Although every class is different, you can expect to explore postures like Warrior 1 and 2, Downward Facing Dog, Tree Pose, Camel Pose, Wheel, Cobbler’s Pose, Handstand, Pigeon, L-Shaped Handstand, Spinal Twists, and of course, Deep Relaxation. The yoga sling takes stress off the joints, decompresses the spine, allows gravity to ease you deeper into postures, while challenging your proprioceptive sense. There is no aerial or yoga experience needed to take your first class. We recommend a weekly practice, either in conjunction with, or without, a ground yoga practice as well. Please show up at least 10 minutes early for your […]

Scare-ials 2014

Scare-ials is our annual Halloween tradition…a mixed-level costumed aerial class followed by candy. This year we dressed up our apparatuses as invented apparatuses, including a fabric cloud swing, a double fabric trapeze, and a chandalyra. Visit this link to see our full photo album from the event, and be sure to join us for upcoming themed classes and days. Happy flying!
