  community member   < less an instructor coaches multiple students on the aerial silks

If you are new to the aerial arts, this is the class for you!
Take your first flight on the aerial fabrics, static trapeze, and lyra, all in this 75 minute class for absolute beginners! Each class begins with a heart pumping warm up and a brief overview of aerial safety, then we fly the friendly skies of The Ann Arbor Aviary. It is designed for absolute beginners and will introduce you to the flexibility, leverage, and balance used while on the apparatus, as well as how to engage the muscles needed to stay safe in the air. Come ready to sweat, smile, and be supported as you challenge both mind and body!
This intro level class will repeat the same curriculum each week, focusing on basic skill on all apparatus, including ascent/descent, mount/dismount, foot locks, coming to seated and standing on the bar, and hollow body position. It should be repeated until your instructor clears you for beginning level classes.

"Suspension-Extension Coyopa Yoga": Mota Thai Yoga.

  community member   < less

Yoga--unlike other yoga class you've taken before. This high intensity class uses straps (similar to TRX) to stretch muscles that can be difficult to stretch in other exercises. Class starts with some stretching, and once the body warms up, begins to pick up the pace. You will work on a flow sequence that will get the heart rate up. The straps are used to help balance and stretch deeper (and safely) into yoga postures. Usually you will feel the stretches in your tighter/weakest muscles first. Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. The studio will be heated between 90-95 degrees for this class, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
You can park in the studio's parking lot for free. Same parking lot as the Yellow Barn. Look for the #22 blue door with a red buddha on it.
