About the Program
Aerial Silks is an alternative style of fitness suitable for any individual regardless of gender, age, body type, fitness level or range of flexibility. It is unique in that it is not only a workout to increase strength and flexibility, but also exercise cognitive skills and problem solving with the addition of the apparatus. Because of the endless possibilities of different movement of skills on the apparatus, workouts never become mundane or boring, but quite the opposite, more exciting and fun!
Whether you’re looking to enhance your current workout routine, increase your flexibility or just have fun, aerial silks fitness is a great option! Prepare to be challenged, sometimes a little confused, but mostly expect to laugh a lot!

She had been a professional aerial silks performance artist/instructor for the past 7 years for several circus schools for group classes, private instruction, and workshop intensives.
