Experience the thrill of applying your skill in the air to different aerial disciplines. In this class, you will practice your skills on various apparatus such as Straight Silks, Hammock, Lyra, as well as in floor exercises and stretching. Learn techniques and strength-building exercises that are relevant to all aerial mediums. As you transfer your skills from one apparatus to another, you discover similarities and differences, as well as where you feel most at home.

Aerial apparatus cross-training improves core control, grip strength, and upper body strength. Note: it takes more than one class to feel these benefits! Enjoy a fabulous, unique workout with restful, rejuvenating closure.

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.

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 www.growplaythrive.com
