At Airhedz, we strive to make our work accessible to all who wish to join. We aren’t yet perfect! Below is information on what we are able to do so far…

Inside the Activity Studio, Whitstable Sports Centre

The Activity Studio in Whitstable Sports Centre, is on the ground floor with ramped access from the car park. There are two accessible toilets on the left hand side as you enter the building.

The Studio at Soul Solutions, Faversham, is on the ground floor with a (small) car park directly in front. There are two (small) accessible toilets on the left hand side as you enter the building and there is a kitchen too.


Aerial Yoga:

Aerial Yoga is suitable for blind/VI participants, as Tina guides everyone through vocal and physical support.

Tina recently partnered with Charlie Hembrow (BSL tutor at Palm Deaf & Pole Dancer) to explore how to make her aerial yoga classes more accessible to Deaf participants. No problem with one-to-ones. In bigger groups it can be problematic… but we’re working on it!

For people with significant mobility conditions, aerial yoga is not so accessible. Please call/email for further information so Tina can explain what might/might not be possible.


Youth Circus:

We have set up the youth circus to be available for all. We have good staff/volunteer support and where appropriate we ask parents/carers to contribute too. We allocate a ‘quiet space’ for those who wish for ‘time out’. For all children or young people with additional needs, please contact us in the first instance to discuss how we can support.

Tina is currently learning BSL (level 2). We are not in a position to pay for additional interpreters, but are happy to find our way through together.


Intro to Aerial, Trapeze and Aerial Fabric

These courses ARE suitable for blind/VI, Deaf and people with some mobility conditions. These are not currently suitable for people with learning disabilities.


PRIVATE CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

ALL private classes and workshops are offered with the specific client/group in mind. We can bring our circus and/or aerial equipment to you, or you can come to us in Whitstable or Faversham.
