Interested in deepening your practice?
Sign up here for one of our 7-week Series scheduled through the year.
Invite your keiki to explore vertical space on two different pieces of aerial apparatus: aerial hammock and lyra, the hanging hoop.
Kids, come increase your proprioception! “My what?!?” Your proprioception tells you where your body is in space, whether upright or upside down! You get to climb, twist, turn, invert and hang – safely without your parents nagging you to “get down off there!” Increase your confidence as you develop coordination, concentration, balance and strength. “Hanging” with Katharine is always a fun-packed learning experience, a chance to bring a friend along, an opportunity to meet new friends!
Kindly let your instructor know of any injuries. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy/postpartum without doctor clearance.
Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. Jewelry off. T-shirt on! No perfume.
Please pre-register for all aerial classes at least an hour in advance and arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you can safely enjoy the class and have the chosen apparatus that you want set up. Since space is limited and setup time is necessary, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals to Aerial classes. If you sign up and do not show up to this limited space class, you will still be charged for the class.
