What makes our classes different?
As we are joyfully flying and working out, we discover lessons applicable to life. Sounds crazy? Here’s an example:

“Look where you want to go. Just like life, the bungee rewards commitment and focus. When keeping the destination in sight, the journey ends more successfully than when one’s gaze wanders to distraction.”

Grounded Aerial classes offer a unique opportunity to strengthen your mind, body, and spirit. Our program affects these domains through movement, connection, and intentioned exploration.

Grounded Aerial classes may look FUN and they are! Additionally, our classes are challenging, total body workouts designed to help create and maintain strong, balanced, and healthy bodies.

Our conscious effort to reveal the connections between movement and Life has caused some to call our classes “Aerial Therapy”. Post-class debriefs include feelings of peace, a sense of tranquility, or in one case, the utterance “Zen AF”. Our classes facilitate connections between students through play, music, synchronicity, and shared experience.

Emotions are explored and expressed with reckless abandon in our supportive and encouraging environment. Years spent studying and observing the elaborate and complex connections between movements and specific emotions provide us with meaningful insight into the motion of emotion. Exploring elements of control or lack thereof within a movement context often has a profound impact on emotional state. Movement can open and release feelings that haven’t been allowed expression. Conversely, the absence of motion indicates the need for one to explore those feelings which serve only to obstruct progress and growth. 

Grounded Aerial encourages constant exploration of one’s infinite possibilities and current limitations. To fully explore the limits and possibilities of the body one must do the same with the mind. Practicing mindfulness is mandatory at Grounded Aerial classes.  Not only for the safety-enhancing nature of the practice but also for its ability to improve our sense of self. Grounded Aerial instructors facilitate this mental Kung Fu; helping students stay present, increase awareness, and consolidate their thoughts.
