General Studio Questions
Should I pre-register for class?

At this time we require students to pre-registration. Most of our classes operate on a monthly basis. Learn more about our enrollments here.

Can I make a reservation over the phone or by email?

You are not guaranteed a spot in class via voice mail or email. Email is the best form of communication. If you'd like more information please email the owner at desertairyoga@gmail.com.

Can beginners come?

Absolutely! Due to Covid-19 our 'drop-in' model has drastically changed. We have several monthly enrollment classes that are suited for beginners and offer  'Intro to Aerial Yoga' drop-in classes throughout the month. See our schedule to book your spot!

What is aerial yoga?

Aerial Yoga is a relatively new approach to a traditional yoga practice.  We use a silk fabric called a ‘hammock’ or ‘swing’ to support the weight of our bodies, helping us achieve various postures with more depth, ease and excitement. See the benefits of aerial yoga.

Will the swing hold me? What's the weight limit?

YES! Safety is our NUMBER 1 priority.

 

Each piece of equipment has been engineered to hold several thousand pounds. The full structure was designed, installed, and inspected by certified engineers. All exercise entails some level of risk, and aerial yoga is no different.

 

All instructors are 200 hour certified yoga instructors that have an additional 50 hours of training and certifications in aerial yoga instruction.  It is essential that you inform your instructor of any existing medical issues, injuries, or other concerns before beginning class and review the “Can I take aerial yoga?” section below to ensure you do not have a condition that may prevent your practice.

Who can take aerial yoga?

Both men and women at least 15 years of age are able to take an aerial yoga class. There are a few contraindications that might keep someone away from the aerial yoga swing.

  • Very high or low blood pressure 

  • Easy onset vertigo 

  • Glaucoma

  • Recent surgery 

  • Heart disease 

  • Osteoporosis 

  • Bone weakness
