Since gravity is always at work, there's no sense in worrying about your tears streaming upwards toward your scalp, soaking your hair, and making people think you were profusely sweating when you were really just incredibly sad. Capitalize on gravity's pull with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $29 for a semi-private aerial-fitness class for 1 (a $75 value)
- $49 for a semi-private aerial-fitness class for 2 (a $125 value)
- $99 for a private aerial-fitness-class party for up to 10 (a $200 value)
Wrapped in swathes of fabric suspended from the ceiling, aerial-fitness instructors demonstrate yoga, dance, and fitness exercises. As students follow suit, bending and twisting in the fabric's embrace, gravity enhances the effectiveness of the movements. Semi-private sessions include one or two participants. See the class schedule.
The 90-minute private party combines physical fitness and creative expression. Instructors present stretches and movements that exercise the body while encouraging students to mimic their favorite superhero or animal. When the fitness portion wraps up, students can take midair photographs of their favorite poses.
Aruna's Fly Gym Playground
At the age of 14, Karen Andes was diagnosed with scoliosis. She faced a choice between a life of rigorous exercise or complete spinal fusion. To her, the choice was simple. She dove into fitness as a profession, publishing five books, 20 DVDs, and leading countless classes. While teaching a pole-fitness class, she met fellow instructor Pam Georgeson-Carter, and with the introduction of a little fabric, the duo developed an entirely new form of aerial fitness.
With load-bearing fabric slings affixed to the ceiling, Karen and Pam teach students to liberate themselves of gravity's demands. Participants twist and turn a foot or more above the floor, strengthening their cores, decompressing their spines, and finally unlocking the secret of how a leaf on the wind feels after it gets tangled in a flag.
