Aerial Foundations Courses
Aerial Foundations 1 & 2 Courses
Enrol in Foundations 1 Course
This intro-level course, when done in conjunction with Foundations 2 and other classes will teach you the foundations of aerial yoga in a fun environment and safely progress you to more advanced aerial classes, courses or workshops.
Session 1- INVERT: Your first session to get comfortable with the hammock and experience the beautiful feeling of getting upside down! This session works towards a peak pose of a folded booty wrap inversion.
Session 2 – BALANCE: Your second session will build upon session 1 to start experiencing the benefits of the aerial hammock such as how it decompresses our spines and allows us into positions that may not be possible in floor yoga. This session works towards peak poses of wrapped shoulder stand and back angel flip.
Session 3 – FLOAT: Now that you will be more familiar with the hammock, the terminology and the benefits of decompressing the spine; you can start to relax a little more and enjoy the feeling of floating and inverting in our peak poses of swan dive and dragonfly.

Enrol in Foundations 2 Course
Foundations 2 follows a similar format of fun skill development – picking up the next 3 foundational skills of FLY – FLIP – FLEX. Whilst working on more intermediate-level skills we will work towards a short group aerial sequence in session 3!
Session 1 – FLY: Session 1 starts with a revision on some of the skills/movements/concepts learnt in Foundations 1 – then moving to one of aerial yoga’s most fun foundational skills of FLY! The peak skill for session 1 will be everyone’s favourite instagrammable pose: Vampire.
Session 2 – FLIP: Session 2 will introduce you to more dynamic poses in the hammock including some more challenging fitness/strength-based exercises and the super fun peak pose of the Swoosh Flip Tuck.
Session 3 – FLEX: Session 3 will combine everything you have learnt so far in Foundations 1 & 2 as we will flow through a short group aerial sequence – including our peak poses/skills of chandelier and teardrop. It will include a mix of inversions, poses, transitions and dynamic tricks.

(last course for 2021)
Are these courses for absolute beginners?
Yes. Foundations 1 is for first timers to Aerial Yoga!
Is there a weight limit?
No! The hammocks and rigging can hold over 800Kg, so all shapes and sizes are welcome!
Who and what fitness levels is aerial yoga suitable for?
Aerial Yoga is suitable for most bodies, ages and fitness levels (some core and upper body strength is required). You don’t require any levels of coordination either – as long as you can follow directions you will love it!
Do you need to have done yoga or other aerial pursuits?
No there is no requirement for pre-requisites – it’s mostly a new skill anyway.
What do I need to bring or wear?
Bring along a yoga mat (if you have one it makes it more comfortable), wear active wear, socks (grippy socks are better – we sell them from $12), and a t-shirt with sleeves (short or long).
Avoid wearing anything that will snag the hammock like zippers and jewellery.
Foundations Courses Vs 2 Week Intro
The most common question we’re asked is what’s the best way to learn aerial yoga: Foundations Courses or the 2 Week Intro Pass? The Foundations Courses will give you a more in-depth, step-by-step introduction to aerial yoga and the fact it teaches skills in progression will give you more rounded competency quicker. The 2 Week Intro is a perfectly fine way to learn aerial as well (starting with an Aerial Basics class), especially if you want to try as many aerial classes as possible. In summary – to optimise your experience we suggest you do both – OR BETTER YET… Join to Membership and you get access to all classes in addition to the Foundations 1 & 2 Courses included at no extra cost!
What if I'd like to Join to Membership during the Course, but I've already paid $99?
If you join to UNLIMITED MEMBERSHIP by the end of your Foundations 1 or 2 Course, we’ll actually credit you the $99 you paid towards your membership payment(s)
