Aerial yoga classes
Starting back soon!
Aerial Yoga draws from the alignment and techniques of yoga, using a low hanging, wide Aerial Sling to aid in moving through traditional yoga postures. By supporting your body weight on the Aerial Sling, it helps to access these postures and deep stretches in a more relaxed way.
One of the primary features of using a Yoga Hammock is its ability to decompress the spine and mitigate joint stress as you practice stretches and positions with the support of the sling. The ‘weightless’ aspect of these classes assist in allowing you to access a wider range of movement by moving through poses that would otherwise be restricted.
Aerial Hammock, when used smartly, can also provide amazing support for a pregnant woman both before and during labour. We will use the hammock to remove pressure on certain areas of the body, release tension, and build strength and flexibility to prepare for labour. In this class, hammock will be just another tool preparing your mind, body, and spirit for birth.

These poles are generally between 3 and 9 meters in height. The Chinese pole in Aerial Art House/Aerial room is 5.5 meters height, with crash mats around the pole provided. Appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn for Chinese Pole Class. Students are advised to wear leggings under old jeans with soft belt. Please note that the pole is covered in rubber so it can be harsh on your clothes, thicker clothes are better. If you are trying the class for the first time it is recommend that you wear slim soles, soft flexible trainers or Feiyue shoes (it is a good idea to find some shoes a size smaller than you would normally wear). If you would like to continue to train in Chinese Pole it is strongly recommended that you purchase professional Chinese Pole footwear such as Tabi boots, which can be purchased online.
