Our aerial silks class is definitely our most popular class!
Aerial silks is a circus and gymnastics art where you’re suspended in the air by two lengths of fabric rigged from a high point. Your body wraps and knots around the fabric whilst striking incredible positions and drops. If you have a background in dance, fitness or gymnastics you will be able to transfer these skills into the air. We must add, no previous experience is needed to attend our class, as we will guide you step by step from the very beginning. It can be hard work but so rewarding and VERY addictive!

Hoop is a good place to start as a beginner into aerial, as once you’re up and in the hoop you can stay there! Saying this, there is plenty of room for improvement and development with hoop and you’ll see some of our advanced aerialists on a hoop in our showcases!

  • Wednesday 
    Adults 10am – 11am

If you fancy something a bit more slow paced and less intense on your body our yoga and stretch classes are for you! This class is a mixture of slow postures, breath work, and deep stretches. It is a chance for you to step away from the manic, fast paced life we are all living and have time to reflect and re-energise. Our stretch classes are more aimed at aerial students focusing on shoulders, forearms, and split stretches. Whereas our yoga classes are a more all rounded session in a full body flow, accompanied by meditative breath work.
