Spark Aerial

Spark Aerial is a unique aerial art designed by Spark Yoga for beginners as well as seasoned athletes.

SPARK AERIAL™

 

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. And it all starts with a single inversion.  
Are you ready to hang?
 

We strongly recommend tighter fitting pants or leggings that cover the backs of the knees.
We require no additional equipment.
No jewelry or clothing with zippers or buttons.

Space is limited, so please register in advance. We look forward to flying with you!

All Spark Aerial classes are held at Spark Yoga - Arlington only.

class descriptions

 

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:

*Have little or no experience on any of the following circus apparatuses (silks, hammock/sling, static trapeze, hoop/lyra).

*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.

*Are not comfortable inverting or standing in the fabrics without instruction.

Level: Fundamentals.
