Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect when I arrive at the studio?
How do you sanitize the studio?
How do you clean the aerial yoga silks?
Students have the option of either purchasing or renting a silk for their exclusive use on a one-time or monthly basis. Silks that have been purchased or rented on a monthly basis are stored in individually labeled bags and professionally dry-cleaned on a regular basis. Daily rentals are washed after every use.
Can I socially distance while practicing at your studio?
Yes! Our aerial yoga studio is a fully open concept with plenty of space for social distancing. Floor markers in front of and inside the entrance have been placed to help students stay 6 feet apart. Floor markers, indicating mat and aerial yoga silk placement in the practice space, have been placed at least 14 feet apart. Class sizes for both mat and aerial yoga classes have been limited to 6 participants. Classes are held at least 30 minutes apart to allow for sanitizing, as well as the safe exit and entry of students. Students enter and exit the studio one at a time to minimize contact with others.
About Aerial Yoga
What is aerial yoga?
Aerial yoga is a type of yoga in which students use a fabric hammock to practice yoga poses. Aerial yoga can be just like regular yoga, using the silk as a prop for support and to even get deeper into a pose, or it can be a way to enter a pose that you might not ordinarily try in a mat class.
What are the benefits of aerial yoga?
- Promotes more ease in the body by allowing the release of muscle tension
- Enhances your practice by allowing you to explore familiar poses in a new way
- Strengthens and tones your body, particularly arms, shoulders, back and core muscles
- Creates greater awareness of sensation in the body
- Gives the opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and experience something new
Do I need to be flexible to do aerial yoga?
No! But you do need to have a basic level of fitness that will allow you to do things like lift your foot up to the level of the silk (hip height) and enough upper body strength to complete a modified push up (knees down on mat).
What to Expect
What should I wear to aerial yoga class?
We recommend close-fitting but comfortable clothing. Tank tops and shorts are discouraged, as the silk can pinch when directly against bare skin. Shirts with sleeves and longer pants or leggings are preferable. We also request that everyone coming to class wear socks, preferably with grip to minimize slipping, to keep your silks fresh.
Is there a weight limit for aerial yoga?
While our silks are professionally installed and secured, and are completely safe to hold thousands of pounds of dynamic weight, we recommend a weight limit of 250lbs or less.
How early should I come to class?
We want you to enjoy the full length of class! Please arrive 10 minutes before class begins to allow time for adjustments as needed. Please do not arrive earlier.
Bookings & Cancellations
Do I have to pre-register for class?
We can only accommodate 6 students per class, and our classes can fill up quickly. This is why we require preregistration for all mat and aerial yoga classes through our website or the MindBody app. You can save your spot up to two weeks in advance!
What if I am placed on the waitlist?
When a class you'd like to attend is already full, you can sign up for the waitlist. If a spot opens up, you'll be added to the class, and we'll shoot you an email or text to confirm. Please be sure to check your email or text messages if you are on the waitlist. Spots can open up at the last minute! If you no longer plan to attend, please remove yourself from the waiit list to give others a chance to take any available spots.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
All purchases are non-refundable. We have a 24-hour cancellation window for all aerial yoga classes.
Non-Members: Cancel no less than 24 hours prior to class to get a full refund. Drop-in students or class-pack holders who cancel their reservation less than 24 hours before class will forfeit the class.
Members: A late fee will be charged for no-shows and cancellations made less than 24 hours before the start of class, if your reservation prevented another student from signing up for class.
Special events or workshops cancelled more than 48 hours prior will receive account credit that can be used towards your next purchase.
NOTE: If you are sick with any type or severity of symptom, please do not come in for class and call or email the studio to let us know you are unable to make your reservation.
