Taught as a series of “stations” this class follows master trainer Carmen Curtis’ conditioning routine as taught in her professional AIReal teacher trainings. Participants are led through a series of exercises on lyra, silks and hammock to increase strength, technical alignment and dexterity. A great complement to the Aerial Yoga and Aerial Dance classes offered at Still & Moving Center.

Tara’s lifelong passions involve all things music & movement, including singing, dancing, musical performance, and fitness. She is equally passionate about helping others, which led to her becoming a Doctor of Occupational Therapy in 2008, starting her own private pediatric OT practice in 2016, in order to help children increase independence in their daily lives.
Tara’s fitness teaching experience began 20 years ago, evolving from multiple methods: aquatic aerobics, ballet barre, belly dance, ashtanga yoga, aerial yoga, and aerial arts. She has certified in Yoga, Aerial Yoga and Aerial Silks with Trilogy Sanctuary and Aerial Revolution in San Diego, CA. Tara’s love of the aerial arts began with hammock in 2016, and grew to include lyra, duo trapeze, as well as silks during her pregnancy. At this time, she primarily practices and teaches silks, hammock and lyra to both adults and kids. As an aerial instructor, Tara enjoys initiating new students of any age to invert for the first time, encouraging them to build confidence and master a new skill. She is very thankful to be part of the team at Still and Moving Center! More about her private occupational therapy practice can be found at
