Best Aerial Classes in Jacksonville!

Lyra

Aerial lyra (also known as aerial hoop) is a circular apparatus suspended from a single or double point. In this class you will learn the various techniques to enter and exit from the hoop along with conditioning, strength and flexibility exercises. After learning basic skills and conditioning, the class will gradually progress into building your strength, showcasing flexibility and learning flipping, turning, rolling, posing, and transitioning positions. Note: We require students to wear clothing that covers the legs, torso and arms for all aerial classes, other than pole. This will help avoiding burns caused by friction with the fabric or hoop.

Aerial Yoga

A fun and fantastic way that you can practice various poses and movements while suspended a few inches off the ground through Aerial Yoga. This practice uses a soft aerial silk to lift one off the ground and at the same time allow for Yoga movements. Imagine a long piece of cloth, like a hammock, holding you by the waist and lifting you a little off the ground. Aerial Yoga revolves around counteracting gravity. By relieving compression due to the pull of gravity while on the ground, the spine is elongated and the shoulders straightened. The few inches of suspension in the air releases tension on the bones and muscles, increasing flexibility.
