Aerial/Hammock class provides an introductory to aerial fundamentals utilizing a combination of balance, strength, flexibility, and endurance to challenge each student’s fitness level. Each class begins with a warm up on the floor and then in the apparatus. Students are navigated through modules of progressive poses and transitions focusing on technique, proper form, core strength, and endurance. While classes are taught in a group setting, individualized assistance is provided to each student to ensure safety and progression. Students may be given alternate poses/transitions to accommodate individual physical ability. After the first 45 minutes, classes conclude with a 10-15 minute conditioning session to develop strength and muscle memory needed for progression.
