Intro to Sling and Lyra for Plus-Size Bodies

Saturday, January 7, 2023 from 10:00 - 11:30am in the Blue room and others  •  Cost: 40


This is an introductory aerial class suited for beginners but specifically geared toward plus- size bodies and the unique challenges they may face. This will be slightly slower paced and focus on adaptations and comfort in the apparatus, sling and lyra. There are no pre-requisites and students are encouraged to wear full leggings and shirts that cover your armpits to help prevent chafing.
