All students must attend a two-part Aerial Beginners Course before moving into a Flow class. New Restore students do not need to do this course.
The Beginners Course, run over two consecutive Mondays or Saturdays for 1hr per session, will ensure you feel supported and safe as you ease your way into the beautiful and healthful practice of Aerial Yoga.
Week one includes a safety screening ensuring Aerial Yoga is right for you and your body. The hammock is initially at knee height as you are introduced to the apparatus, diaphragmatic breathing and basic asanas. You will feel at ease as you gently learn to trust the hammock and are introduced safely to inversions.
Week two includes more dynamic integrated movement, strength building asanas as well as a more thorough experience into the world of beneficial inversions.
During the course you will also have a one-on-one consultation with a qualified aerial teacher where your current fitness levels, goals and aspirations are discussed.
This class is suitable for all levels. This class is not suitable for pregnant students.
Love Restore and ready for something a bit more? Slow Flow is a class between Restore and Flow. The silks are at waist height. You will be guided through a slow and gently flowing class which will mobilise your joints, enhance balance and flexibility and softly introduce you to inversions. This is a dream class for those who wish to introduce more elements of aerial yoga into their practice while slowly building their strength. Suited to those who have tried Restore and want more, or want something in between to help transition towards a more challenging flow class.
Build courage and confidence as you experience deeper stretching and strengthening throughout the entire body, using the silks to support the body and achieve postures you may not be able to through regular floor practice. Enhance proprioception through novel and engaging movement experiences as you learn strength-based inversions and arm balance asanas. Have fun as you challenge yourself, flowing to music and rediscovering the joy of play.
This class is suitable for those who have confidently completed an Ocean Air Intro class. This class is not suitable for pregnant students.
A low intensity class of relaxing postures where the silk is lowered close to the mat and students are peacefully guided through a deep supported release. Slow and considered movements designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system blissfully brings you on a journey to support your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Potential for an oxytocin release, produced by contact between swing and body, can enhance feelings of security, trust and wellbeing. This class also aims to improve concentration and mental functioning as well as joint flexibility, mobility and a gentle activation of muscles post training or injury. Suitable for all levels and ages. An Aerial Beginners Course is not a pre-requisite. This class is not suitable for pregnant students.
Start your day the way you intend to live your life with a strong Warrior Flow class. This 45 minute power class is designed to build your strength, increase muscle tone, enhance focus, finesse concentration, escalate flexibility and kick start your day with fun, vitality and a fierce attitude. The same sequence each class allows you to fine tune your skills, focus on alignment and judge progress as positive changes to your body & mind intensify.
Prerequisite of at least three Flow classes applies. This class is not suitable for pregnant students.
