SPARK BARRE

 

Spark Barre by Spark Yoga is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary barre methods. Spark Barre uses small, controlled movements, as well as weights, to sculpt and tone the core, hips, legs, upper body and seat.  All Spark Barre classes take place at the barre with mirrors and music to aid form and rhythm. Space is limited, so make sure to book in advance. 

Come raise the barre with us!

Spark Barre takes place in an unheated space with a padded, contoured floor and does not require a mat. Socks are suggested.

Spark Aerial is a fun and fully engaging experience that will challenge you physically and mentally.  Through a combination of tricks, poses, techniques, sequencing, progressions, and dynamic movement, you will build core and upper body strength, work on flexibility, and find grace and balance.

We strongly recommend tighter fitting pants or leggings that cover the backs of the knees. 
Not needed: Mats, socks, or other equipment.

 

 
 

Spark Aerial™ *Basics*

Challenge yourself by learning the fundamental skills of Spark Aerial Hammock! No matter your previous experience, or not, in gymnastics, dance, yoga, or even aerial yoga, if you have taken fewer than 3 aerial circus classes (silks, hammock/sling, trapeze, or hoop/lyra) before, please start here. Because Spark Aerial Hammock is circus based, this class will be different from aerial yoga. In it, you will learn the building blocks of the aerial arts; inversions, leg and hand wraps, proper form and technique, tricks, and poses to set you up for success in Spark Aerial while strengthening your core and upper body. This class is REQUIRED for first-time fliers.

Experience: We recommend this class for those who:

*Would like to learn the fundamentals of hammock while building strength and flexibility.

*Are not familiar with terms such as diaper wrap, pullover, dead hang.
