NEW TO ELEVATE?

We do require ALL students new to our studio first attend our New Member Foundations Series before attending our other aerial yoga classes. We've designed this series to ensure students new to an aerial yoga practice feel comfortable navigating the aerial hammock before joining our other classes and for those that may have taken aerial yoga classes in other studios understand the queuing used in our space.
