Tuesdays 7:15-8:15 pm.

Experience the thrill of applying your skill in the air to different aerial disciplines. In this class, you will practice your skills on various apparatus such as Straight Silks, Hammock, Lyra, Trapeze, as well as in floor exercises and stretching. Learn techniques and strength-building exercises that are relevant to all aerial mediums. As you transfer your skills from one apparatus to another, you discover similarities and differences, as well as where you feel most at home. Aerial apparatus cross training improves core control, grip strength, and upper body strength. Note: it takes more than one class to feel these benefits! Enjoy a fabulous, unique workout with restful, rejuvenating closure.

Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation. Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. Jewelry off. T-shirt on!

Pre-requisite: Aerial experience and prior teacher approval before the night of your first Mixed Aerial Apparatus class.
