FAQ

What can I expect when I arrive at the studio?

When you arrive at the studio, you will wait at the entrance for a staff member to invite and check you in. You will be required to wash or sanitize your hands thoroughly before class, and wear a face covering throughout your time in the studio. For more information about how to prepare and what to expect, go to our full safety policy.

How do you sanitize the studio?

After each class, commonly-touched hard surfaces will be disinfected. The studio and lobby floor will be cleaned daily. A medical grade air purifier will also be running before and after each class. Windows will be open when possible to increase ventilation.

How do you clean the aerial yoga silks?

Students have the option to either purchase or rent 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 washed upon request for a $10 fee. 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, indicating aerial yoga silk or lyra placement in the practice space, have been placed at least 6 feet apart. Class sizes for both aerial yoga have been limited to 13 participants, while Lyra classes are capped at 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. Students use the silk as a prop, in order to get better support, a deeper stretch and the opportunity to safely enter inversions and other poses they might not ordinarily try in a yoga 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 and 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 require preregistration for all aerial yoga and Lyra classes through our website or the MindBody app. You can reserve your spot up to one month 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 send you an email or text to confirm. You are responsible for showing up, so please check your messages and cancel out of the waitlist, if you are no longer available.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

All purchases are non-refundable. We have a 12-hour cancellation window for all aerial yoga classes.

Non-Members: Cancel no less than 12 hours prior to class to get a full refund. Drop-in students or class-pack holders who cancel their reservation less than 12 hours before class will forfeit the class.

Members: A late fee will be charged for no-shows and cancellations made less than 12 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. You can read more about COVID-19 symptoms at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html and https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus.

Can I extend my expiration date on my class pack?

If you are unable to utilize your remaining classes prior to your expiration date, don’t worry! We have two options for you to consider.

  1. Purchase another 5- or 10-class pack, regardless of what you currently have, and we will roll over any unused classes onto your new pack with the new expiration date.
  2. Extend your expiration date for a one-time fee of $15. Your expiration date will be extended by 2 months for 5-class packs, or 4 months for 10-class packs. Click here to take advantage of this option.

How do I book a private party or event?

You can book private parties and groups directly through our website, via the Mindbody app or by calling (978) 257-0075. A $75 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking. Payment in full is due one week prior to the event.
