GROUP AERIAL CLASSES

AERIAL x BARRE x PILATES

We are OBSESSED with all three of them – AERIAL, BARRE & PILATES, so we created our very own Aerial Barre/Pilates class to combine all three.

You get a fun, effective and efficient workout, with all the benefits of barre, but also the bonus challenge of balance and stability from Aerial Yoga.

AND as with ALL our Aerial classes you’ll leave feeling refreshed and restored after some delicious YIN Stretch & Zen in the hammocks – it’s everyone’s FAVOURITE part of every class 💜

Make sure you bring some grip socks and plenty of water! No ballet, pilates or aerial experience necessary, but definitely bring an open mind and a sense of adventure.

AERIAL YIN WORKSHOPS

This beautiful and peaceful class is all about slowing down and opening your body and mind through long, deep passive stretching.

It is a completely different experience to most mat based yoga classes in, and is focused on restoring the body and mind. In addition to passive stretching using the hammock, this class also incorporates a beautiful floating meditation whilst cocooned in the hammock leaving you feeling the blissful and totally chilled by the end of the class.

This is not run as a regular class, but as a 1-Off Workshop.
