LEVEL 1 / Aerial Yoga
No matter your level of experience in traditional yoga, aerial dance, modern dance, or cheerleading camp, if you’ve never taken an Aerial Yoga class before, please start with Level 1! Level 1 classes are designed to familiarize students with the building blocks of an Aerial Yoga practice. Students will learn how to balance using the fabric as support, flip in the air, and position the hammock in the right spot to not lose their lunch in down dog. This class also helps students gain body awareness and comfort in supported inversions.
Aerial Yoga Level 1 is recommended for students who:
- Have taken 3 or fewer aerial yoga classes
- Have little, or no experience doing mat-based yoga
- Wish to build basic strength & flexibility
LEVEL 2: Aerial Fit
Aerial Fit will include more fitness and core work using aerial hammocks. This class focuses on upper and lower abs, obliques, and lower back muscles. Level 2 students learn how to use the hammock for acrobatic-style balancing while integrating more flips & cirque into their Aerial Yoga practice. This class will challenge you to develop increased strength and flexibility, while you learn to flow through multiple poses without ever stepping your feet down to rest.
Aerial Yoga Level 2 is recommended for students who:
- Have taken 5 aerial yoga classes or more recently at Fit Columbia or have equivalent experience with aerial hammock.
- Be able to invert with the hammock at the sacrum with no instruction
LEVEL 1: Hip Hop Aerial Flow
In hip hop aerial yoga, students learn to use aerial fabric to create elegant shapes and beautiful inversions from yoga inspired poses to choreographed dance sequencing. Each class starts with a warm-up emphasizing strength, flexibility & alignment, and will continue by introducing elements of progressive choreography with the hammock.
LEVEL 1: Aerial Restorative Flow
Aerial yoga mellow flow is a restorative style class designed for students of all levels who are looking to slow down their practice and use the aerial fabric closer to the ground. At the end of class, you can expect a long and loving savasana, before we send you off completely refreshed!
