Aerial Yoga Classes

What is Aerial Yoga?

Aerial yoga is a type of yoga in which students use a fabric hammock to practice yoga poses. Students use the silk as a prop, in order to get better support, a deeper stretch and the opportunity to safely enter inversions and other poses they might not ordinarily try in a yoga class.

Our studio offers a variety of beginner, intermediate and advanced level aerial yoga classes that can accommodate up to 14 students. Learn more and sign up below.

Aerial Yoga Essentials – Beginner

Are you new to aerial yoga? Join this beginner-level aerial yoga class and learn the fundamental skills required to establish a safe and balanced aerial yoga practice. Familiarize yourself with the aerial yoga hammock and gradually become more comfortable using it, as you move slowly through a carefully crafted series of supported poses. Use the silk as a prop to perform simple seated, standing and inverted aerial yoga poses, and modify as often as needed by maintaining contact with the floor. Spend the last few minutes of class resting in an extended savasana, cocooned in your aerial yoga silk.

Requirements: No experience is required to attend this class. Aerial Yoga Essentials is a prerequisite for attending any other aerial yoga class at our studio, unless you’ve received prior approval from an instructor.

NOTE: Aerial Yoga Essentials on Wednesdays @ 7:30 PM also feature a crystal bowls sound bath. Crystal bowls help harness sound and vibration to create a space of peace and love. When our body is in dis-ease, we are literally out of tune or vibrating off key. Disharmony can manifest mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Through the use of sound healing, we can shift the vibration of the diseased or disharmonious area to bring it back into harmony and essentially balance and heal it.

Aerial Yoga Mixed Levels

Ready to step it up a notch? Take all the skills you’ve learned in your beginner aerial yoga classes and start building on them. Flow through a series of familiar and slightly more challenging aerial yoga poses that are tailored to meet you at your level. As you stretch and strengthen, your instructor will offer both modifications and advancements to each pose, so you may honor your body and/or challenge yourself, as you see fit. Class will gradually build up towards and culminate in a peak aerial yoga pose, and end with an extended savasana inside your aerial yoga hammock.

Requirements: Aerial Yoga Essentials or prior approval from an instructor is required to attend this class.

Aerial Yoga Flow & Restore

This unique aerial yoga class is at once challenging and restful, heating and cooling, and incredibly balancing for both the body and the mind. The practice is composed of three specially designed aerial yoga flow sequences, each of which ends in a longer-held restorative aerial yoga pose. Class ends in a restful savasana inside your aerial yoga hammock.

Open Studio Time

Wish you could practice the aerial yoga or lyra poses you see on Instagram? Want to troubleshoot and master an aerial yoga or lyra sequence that’s been eluding you? Come on in for our open studio time! Open studio time is an option for our more experienced practitioners who want their own hang time to enjoy using the studio space for their own practice. Self-guided practice often yields the most significant gains and is a wonderful way to turn your attention inward without distractions. Students will need to rent or purchase a silk for use. Studio lyras are provided at no charge. Staff will rig your apparatus and then you are on your own to explore!

Requirements: Prior approval from an instructor is required to attend Open Studio Time. Students must have a high level of fitness, feel a strong sense of comfort and safety with their apparatus, and be comfortable with working independently.

NOTE: Unless you are on the 30-Day Unlimited New Student Special or taking a single class, you must rent or buy a silk to participate in our group aerial yoga classes. If you are dropping into a single class, we will provide you with a studio silk at no extra charge (studio silks are washed regularly, but not between every user). If you prefer to use a freshly-laundered silk, you may rent one for $10.
