Aerial Silks

Silks 101 combines the aesthetics of aerial silks with the strength and conditioning training needed to elevate your climbing practice. Because of the unique experience of working on fabric, silks conditioning incorporates continuous core and muscle activation throughout an entire exercise. Instructors show how to safely work out (and then stretch) muscles in shoulders, hips and hands – extremely important areas that many climbers neglect.

When coming to aerial classes, please wear clothes that are on the tighter side (really loose clothing may get caught in the fabric), and that your armpits, backs of your knees and lower back are completely covered. Please remove jewelry before coming to class and make sure your feet are fresh and tidy! (We only use bare feet on the silks.)
