Frequently Asked Questions
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 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, in order to keep our silks smelling as fresh as possible.
Is there a weight limit for aerial yoga?
How early should I come to class?
We want you to enjoy the full length of class! Please arrive a few minutes before class begins to allow time for adjustments as needed. 15 minutes before class is scheduled to begin is ideal. This allows enough time for you to find a silk that is the correct height for your body. Sometimes the instructor has to adjust the silk higher or lower, and this can take a few minutes. We strive to begin class on time, so please arrive early to allow ample time for these adjustments to be done.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
All purchases are non-refundable. We have a 12-hour cancellation window for all aerial yoga classes.
Do I have to pre-register for class?
Our aerial yoga classes can fill up quickly and we can only accommodate 12 students. We recommend pre-registering for all aerial yoga classes through our website or the MindBody app. You can save your spot up to 4 months in advance! We have been turning people away at the door-and we really hate to do that.
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!
