Sign up for a class
Aerial yoga is a combination of traditional yoga poses and postures practiced using a soft fabric suspended at waist height, allowing students to achieve proper postural alignment in exciting new ways. In our classes, you will learn exercises that will promote a deep understanding of your body through an adventurous and restorative practice. You develop core, upper and lower body strength, flexibility, motor dynamics, spinal alignment, endurance, reflex response, balance and somatic awareness.

We are often full, so we advise you to sign up before class.

Bungee Hijinks Workshop
SATURDAYS | February 4, 11, 18, 2017 | 12-1:30pm

TEACHER: Sonya Smith
LEVEL: All levels welcome


Three weeks of ridiculously giddy flying for anyone who has always thought, "that looks fun!" Bouncing, flipping and making shapes disguise the muscle building and core work involved in both close-to-the-floor and mid-air bungee dancing.
Dancing On Tissu Workshop
SATURDAYS | March 4, 11, 18, 2017 | 12-1:30pm

TEACHER: Helen Dickson
LEVEL: All levels welcome


Aerial tissu is a unique and challenging apparatus. In this class, we will learn techniques to safely climb, dance on, and descend from the tissu. As we focus on ways to move into and out of the apparatus and how to transition between moves in the air, the goal will be to create a cohesive phrase. You will develop upper and lower body strength as well as increase your body awareness.

This class is suitable for beginning and intermediate students of all backgrounds (no aerial experience required).
Slipstream Workshop

TEACHER: Sonya Smith
LEVEL: All levels welcome


This 3-week workshop embraces the power and possibility in the body alone and in contact with objects, spaces and people.

These 2.5 hour classes focus on bungee and as we get comfortable, bungee partnering. We begin with a Contact Improvisation based warm-up to prepare for partnering in the air. This will also be our opportunity to engage in discussion around strength, fluidity, awkwardness, aerial movement aesthetics and expectations around the body you inhabit.
