If you’re new to aerial silks or yoga, you’ll want to get started with our regular classes first, since you need expert guidance to start your journey. Details are here:
If you’ve been cleared for self-practice by one of our teachers, you should revise the safety notes below and ensure you practice with these in mind. Self-practitioners are welcome to come train during our open hours, subject to flooring availability. Charges for self-practice are as in the two class pages above (dropin, monthly, etc).
~ Ensure you’re well hydrated, have eaten 1.5 hrs prior for energy, and only attempt tricks you can safely carry out alone
~ If you need spotting or guidance, come to class or come with another student who can capably help you
~ Take adequate breaks, do not train on a fatigued body, and stay well within your limits
~ Warmups and cooldowns are crucial for the longevity of your practice
DON’T ATTEMPT DIFFICULT TRICKS ALONE – YOUR SAFETY DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON YOU
~ We use the rewoven figure 8 and the alpine butterfly. You should be able to visually inspect a knot to ensure you’re not getting on something unsafe.
~ An improperly tied knot can open unexpectedly, so it is vital that they’re tied only by members of the rigging team, and not by users or teachers.
DON’T TAMPER WITH OUR KNOTS
~ For aerial yoga students, there are five additional butterfly knots set to allow easy adjustability of the hammock’s height:
C. CARABINERS LOCKED
D. LINES ARE SEPARATE & STRAIGHT, NO NYLON ON NYLON
~ Although we routinely inspect the rigging, students pulling silks up and down can cause lines to get snarled. Nylon running on top of nylon is dangerous, so please look up and ensure the line you are using is running straight and without any contact with another piece of nylon.
E. EQUIPMENT NOTES
~ We inspect our equipment regularly, but if you notice tears or other problems with silks, carabiners, rope, rigging, etc., please alert one of us right away.
~ This is the only way we prescribe tying a silk to a descender, please ensure you are familiar with this. You can see this video from Aerial Physique and another one from Aerial Essentials on how to tie a silk.
~ Students, please use the rosin dust only in the box, do not spread it around; it is a valuable resource, and stains flooring quickly because of how sticky it is. Please spray the silks lightly with Dettol spray after use for hygiene.
