Grounded Aerial® Bungee Classes allow anyone to experience a fun and physically challenging hour of flight. Movements augmented by the bungee are incredibly empowering, rewarding, and addictive. Although flying might appear easy in videos, it is harder than it looks. Modifications and challenges can be applied to any term to decrease or increase the difficulty. Class participants work at their own pace with needed modifications/challenges.
To achieve confidence in motion, class participants must listen to and respond with the bungee. Fighting the will of the bungee is an exercise in futility; you’ll tire before it does. Accepting the strength of the bungee and beginning to move within it’s suggestions are one of the many physical/spiritual metaphors reinforced during Grounded Aerial® bungee classes. $35/hr

With an already created piece, or an idea that desires to be fleshed out– this class helps develop work to the next level via journaling, lecturing, and application. (for the air or on the ground). Participants often praise Karen’s ability to allow creative exploration into a character’s movements. We feely investigate shapes/actions/motivations/inspirations/limitations and their influence on body language, posture, gate, gaze, speech and more.
