Everything you need to know about Starting at Bend +Fly!
1. Your First Aerial Class
If starting with the 2 Week Intro – start with Aerial Basics Class on Saturday Morning (recommended) or a class marked ‘All Levels’ (alternate starting class) progressing to Aerial Flow 1, then to Aerial Fitness, Flow Level 2 or Play Level 2 classes. NOTE: You should seek staff feedback on progressing to Level 2 classes.
FOUNDATIONS COURSE Vs 2 WEEK INTRO: You can start aerial yoga with either service. The 6 Week Aerial Foundations Course goes into a more depth – teaching the 6 foundational skills of aerial yoga (Invert / Balance /Float/ Fly/ Flip/ Flex) – taught in progression across 6 weekly classes. The 2 Week Intro provides a more basic introduction into aerial yoga, but provides the benefit of being able to come to as many aerial classes as possible (normally starting with the Aerial Basics class) Note: The Foundations Course is not included in the 2 Week Intro Offer, but you can buy both.
2. Your First Floor Yoga Class
If completely new to yoga, you can start with most classes (depending on your fitness levels of course). If you’re a complete novice to yoga start with a yoga classs marked ‘all-levels’ or a non-heated classes, Slow Flow, Yin yoga or Vin Yin (vinyasa & yin yoga). It’s perfectly fine to start with Hot Power Yoga or Power Yoga – but remember, every pose has an option if too challenging and childs poses is always available if the heat becomes too much a physical challenge.
