I'm super proud as a teacher. I took two of my students and coached them to put together a piece that debuted last week at Aerlift as part of Moisture Festival. The piece is here:

Now that the piece is done, I'd like to take some new students under my wing.

I'm teaching a preview event of aerial conditioning this Saturday from 2-4pm ($20).

I've created a conditioning program blending both yoga and aerial acrobatics. The resulting aerial yoga is both fun and challenging. It's a whole body workout that trains strength, balance, and flexibility. By taking yoga poses and flipping their orientation or putting them on an unsteady surface, the body is pushed in entirely different ways than it is used to which produces quick gains in fitness.

These exercises are done on aerial fabrics and trapezes. The exercises are largely done low to the ground with safety and fear of heights in mind. This is strictly a conditioning class and not an aerial dance / new circus arts performing class. Most people want to do the pretty tricks, but they aren't remotely strong enough to do any of them. I created this program as both a general strength building regiment and as a way for people to obtain the high level of core stregth needed to do aerial acrobatics.

It's currently time to get ready for swimsuit season... It's actually almost too late to make a big difference by summer so you really need to start now. Think of yourself at the beach in your current state and come to my workshop on Saturday!

You need to have a reasonable base level of fitness and not be overweight, but if you meet that criteria, no experience is needed.

Sample class Saturday, April 3, from 2pm-4pm

I will be teaching a four week aerial conditioning workshop and a aerial bootcamp starting April 10 & 11.
