Relapse Prevention: Dawn Farm.

  community member   < less Dawn Farm Education Series

"Relapse Prevention" will be presented by Erik Anderson LLMSW; Dawn Farm Outpatient Therapist. Addiction has been identified as a illness that requires long-term management.

Understanding the relapse process assists recovering people to develop an effective plan to identify and prevent relapse. This program will discuss the dynamics of relapse, signs that may forewarn of relapse, how to develop a relapse prevention plan and strategies to handle high-risk situations. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, and related issues. Anyone with a personal or professional interest is welcome.

Aerial Hammock 1: A2 Aviary.

  community member   < less

An artistic discipline in its own right, aerial hammock is similar to aerial silks, except the fabric hangs in a loop creating a hammock-like apparatus. It provides new and experienced students alike with skills transferable to silks, trapeze, and lyra. Students in this class will learn a variety of dynamic and lyrical progressions while focusing on strength, fluidity, and choreography.
$150 for a seven week series
$25 for a single class
A2 Aviary, 4720 S. State Rd, Ann Arbor, MI. $25 - $150. 734-726-0353. contact@a2aviary.com http://a2aviary.com/offerings/aerial-hammock-1/ [map]

Lyra 1: A2 Aviary.

  community member   < less

The Lyra (also known as the aerial hoop, aerial ring or cerceau) is a circular steel apparatus, resembling a hula hoop. It is suspended from the ceiling and can be used static, spinning, or swinging. This class is designed for beginning aerialists to gain confidence and strength in the fundamentals of Lyra. You will learn to get on and off the apparatus unassisted, as well as seated and under the bar poses. This is also an excellent conditioning class for established aerialists looking to hone their transitions and perfect their technique, without focusing on choreography. Be ready to build strength, flexibility, and coordination - not to mention bruises in unusual places…!
