Bungee bouncing, Pendulum soaring, and Dance ON a 20ft.wall.
Are you an urban explorer that is a bit bored with your work out? Want to stimulate your creative juices again? How about getting abs of steel, less stress, and not even realize that you are experiencing an insane work out?…. IN THE AIR? Come fly and dance, and play on our 30-foot walls, bungees, and pendulum lines.
This is a workout for mind, body, and spirit via flight. Bring out your inner child…and float out of class flushed and happy. It happens every time…Really.
Flying Workshops Bungee bouncing, Pendulum soaring, and dance on a 20ft.wall
“It was funny, after the workshop, I’d feel the sensations of flying when I meditated…a brilliant addition to my practice. An overall euphoric experience!” -Mandy Caughey, Waitress
“As a non-dancer, I never imagined I could move this way…The air becomes so exhilarating.” -David Schleifer, Banker.
We will explore front point bungee, double point bungee (think- giant adult baby bouncing chair), wall running and flipping, AND giant pendulum swings across the room. Come with an open mind, ready to explore your thoughts and psyche, and take a deep breath for flight and an intense workout.
It has been said that it’s like Pilates on crack!
This workshop will give the opportunity to pierce, catapult, and soar through the air–the stuff dreams are made of…
