Our studio has been structurally tested by a local architecture firm for stability and safety. Our riggings have been professionally installed and receive regular check ups. Our silks are professional quality and cycled out when worn out. Our silks are less than 3 feet off the ground and falls/injuries are uncommon. We are NOT a circus or acrobatics class. Our aerial yoga class is taught without yoga mats on the floor because we find they get in the way when we are moving from floor to air. You are welcome to bring your own. Each aerial yoga instructor is yoga alliance certified and receive continuing education to ensure the best experience for each of our clients. Your safety is our first priority.
