Aerial Yoga

Aerial classes

All Airhedz Aerial Yoga courses take place at:

Soul Solutions (Studio), Graveney Road, Faversham, Kent

Airhedz Aerial Yoga courses are designed by long-time aerialist and yoga practitioner Tina Carter. Using fabric slings (or hammocks) hung to waist-height, her sequences encourage balance, stamina, strength and overall wellbeing. The private studio facilitates 6 participants at a time, ensuring a focused session with plenty of support from the tutor. Each session ends with up to five minutes of quiet, meditative suspended rest. As these classes are formed around a sequence of movements, if you have any conditions that might impede your participation, please talk to Tina beforehand so that she can advise on potential adaptations.

THE CLASS STRUCTURE

  • Aerial Yoga sessions run for an hour including warm-up and relaxation.  Please ensure you arrive promptly so the class can start on time. You may not be able to access the class once it has started; please be aware that on occasion the venue is locked during the class and no late admittance will be possible. If you are know you are running late, then please contact Tina at the earliest, safe opportunity.
  • Use of the aerial equipment is strictly for the duration of the class, so please do not begin using the equipment prior to that point in the session.
  • Each session will begin with a warm-up with light cardio and mobilisation on the ground, followed by the aerial yoga session.  Each session finishes with up to 5 minutes relaxation encased in or using the aerial hammocks for support.  Please note that enclosure in the fabric can cause some people claustrophia, so this is of course optional.
  • Airhedz Aerial Yoga sessions are devised by Tina Carter as sequences that flow from movement to movement.  However, with the addition of new people and the introduction of new movements, the fluidity may at times be affected, so that specific skills or techniques can be learned.  This might mean that the usual flow of a session is interrupted.  If this is the case, please keep to the practice in hand and await the development and resist 'playing' in the fabric at those times.
  • Inspired by mindfulness and yoga practices, the sessions aim to allow each participant to move and breathe in a way that is most suitable for them within a given sequence.  If at any point you find that you are struggling, need to rest or need to take time out, then please listen to your body and do just that. 
  • Adjustments and options are offered throughout the sequences wherever possible to accommodate all our different bodies and experiences, however, if you have any physical, sensory or learning conditions that might impact on your ability to follow a sequence of movement, please contact Tina in the first instance so she can make appropriate adjustments to the choreography beforehand.
  • Please ensure you read our Codes of Conduct before attending. They offer information on what to wear, punctuality, cancellation and photographic policies.

Catch-up Sessions:

  • All courses are to be booked and paid for in advance, regardless of attendance. No refunds are possible for missing classes, however, where possible, catch-up sessions will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis as and when places come available.
  • Catch-up sessions become available when someone else cannot attend a class. If you know you are not going to be able to attend, please let Tina know as soon as possible, so that space can be offered as a catch-up to someone else. 
  • There is no guarantee that you will be able to catch-up, but to date, with everyone communicating well, most people have been able to do so.
  • ​Please note that if you simply do not turn up, then you may forfeit your opportunity for a catch-up as your space would not have been able to be offered to someone else.
  • To claim a catch-up session, please respond as soon as possible to the emails circulated. Whilst I am happy for people to carry over the missed sessions to another course, you will need to be booked and paid onto the following course in order to claim them.

Happy Dangling!

*If you would be interested in a different time course on Mondays or Tuesdays, this might be possible. If you have a group interested in the same time, why not contact us to see what's possible. To keep prices down, a minimum of 4 people is required for courses to run. If fewer are booked onto any course, alternatives might be offered or courses might be cancelled. On occasion, Tina might need to alter dates, but advance notice will be given and alternatives offered.
