Adult Classes & Pricing

If you have ever watched Cirque du Soleil, any other modern circus, or Pink in concert, you have seen aerial acrobatics. In the past there was not much opportunity to learn these skills, aside from running off to join the circus. Today however, aerial acrobatics have become more main stream and you can train in multiple places around the world.

Luckily Canberra has it's own aerial school right here in your home town!

Class Options

Aerial Foundations

This class is for complete beginners, who do not have any experience with Aerial Acrobatics and would love to learn. We will play on 3 different apparatus, silks, lyra & static trapeze. You will learn the basics of each apparatus & how to move in and out of different positions, including going upside down! You will build strength & confidence, and give you a taste of each apparatus. You may focus on one apparatus a week, or 2-3, depending on the instructor.

Aerial Yoga

This class is designed for complete beginners who want to take their yoga practice to a new height... in the air. Using an aerial hammock, you'll be taught poses in the air from easy upside down positions to various sitting & standing ones. Participants can move at their own pace & previous yoga experience is not necessary.

Aerial Silks

Silks, also known as tissu or fabric, is a long piece of special fabric which is attached to the ceiling with two long tails coming down. You will be taught how to climb, wrap, and hold yourself in positions on the apparatus. The more advanced will learn more complex moves, drops & combinations.

Lyra (Aerial Hoop)

Lyra (pronounced leer-ah), also known as Aerial Hoop & Cerceau, is a steel ring suspended from the ceiling, which typically spin but can also be used static. You will be taught basic poses and transitions below, on and above the hoop, as well as how to spin. The more advanced will learn more complex moves and be encouraged to practice their skill repertoire while spinning.

Static Trapeze

Static Trapeze is a stationary bar suspended from the ceiling from ropes on each side. You will be taught to hang, climb & go upside down, as well as basic poses and transitions. You will learn how to move in and out of positions and poses using the bar and the ropes.

Aerial Hammock

Similar to the aerial silks, aerial hammock is a long piece of special fabric, but instead of two long tails they connect at the top creating a loop. You will learn how to get on the hammock, and various positions & drops with the fabric in both the open & closed position.

Cloud Swing (Static)

Cloud swing is a thick soft rope that drapes down from 2 points in the ceiling, creating a flexible seat. Most moves & tricks have been adapted from aerial silks or static trapeze. Because of the similiar movements, we ask you have at least 1 year experience, completing our level 1 of Aerial Foundations, before attempting cloud swing.

Yin Yoga

The practice of yin yoga focuses on meditation and breath while in a pose, and is suitable for people of all ages - teens and adults. Beyond its benefits for muscles and joints, Yin practice delves deep into fascia, releasing tension and promoting overall well-being.

Open Practice

Open practice sessions are a supervised training sessions, where you can try what you've learned in class or something you've been wanting to practice. All apparatus are available for use during the open session. We welcome non aerial praticionars as well, with a space for acro, contact impro, natural movment, etc.
*Teaching is not permitted during open practice.*
