Aerial Yoga & Pilates*

In this workshop you will learn how to take traditional yoga poses and Pilates exercises off the ground in order to add a fun alternative to your regular practice! Using Fly Gym before your regular Mat Yoga allows for deeper stretches and a  more fulfilling yoga session.

Conditioning for Pole & Aerial Arts*

To succeed in aerial arts and pole dancing you need flexibility, upper body, strength, and incredible body awareness and control. You also have to feel comfortable moving fluidly off the ground. For beginners this can seem like a daunting task, and even for advanced performers it takes a lot of work to maintain fitness and prevent injuries. This workshop combines the benefits of aerial fitness exercises and aerial circus or pole dance positions so that you can take your skills to the next level. Support your body in the fabrics so that you can safely learn more advanced positions, condition your body evenly, stretch further, and build climbing muscles!

Fly Gym Fixed Point*

When you combine the use of Fly Gym slings with a pole, you open up a whole new world of movement capabilities. Not only can you climb and fly at the same time, but you can also achieve pole poses you never thought were possible! In this workshop we will learn how to incorporate the pole and the Fly Gym for conditioning exercises, we will practice different climbing techniques and entry points to the pole, and we will practice Fly Gym Pole poses and you will learn how to use Fly Gym slings as a spotter for tough moves on the pole. Our Fly Gym pole poses are drawn from traditional pole dance moves (as well as a few of our own inventions that are unique to Fly Gym). This is a great workshop for seasoned pole dancers to add a new challenge to what they can do on the pole, and even for those with no pole experience, this is a great place to start!

Fly Gym Personal Training or Fly Gym® Hard Core*

The purpose of this course is to give Fly Gym teachers the tools to design specialized programs for unique individuals. The course will cover advanced teaching techniques such as: how to conduct movement assessments using Fly Gym, mind-body teaching methods, and exercise protocols for individuals with special needs. The course will also give details instructions for progressive Fly Gym exercises to enhance body awareness and functional movement.

Restorative Aerial Fitness *

Think aerial fitness is just for the circus? Think again. With Fly Gym, aerial fitness exercises can be adapted in a supportive and therapeutic manner so that anybody can enjoy the freedom of movement that suspended exercise brings. By hanging the fabrics close to the ground, participants with limited mobility can enjoy supported stretches and gentle inversions. The fabrics can also be used with “fixed points” or as a support system to help participants who may not have the strength to lift their own bodyweight (a great way for older adults or obese participants to do squats and push-ups without straining their joints!) You will also learn how to use the fabrics slings to create targeted get gentle resistance exercises. Help your clients build strength, mobility, and balance so that they gain independence and confidence in their body and their abilities!
