Put a spring in your step with CVDAerial

Feb 19, 2015 | Blog, CVDAerial

Spring is in the air, regardless what the calendar says. These balmy “February False Alarm” days makes us feel sunny and lighter. Something we’re looking forward to this spring at CVDA is more aerial classes.

Last fall The Studio installed 11 aerial silks suspended from the ceiling. Our instructors got certified for aerial classes and we hosted a few workshops. Now we’re thrilled to announce our first CVDAerial candlelight series on March 6th, 13th, and 20th from 7:45-9:00 pm and a stretch/strength series on March 7th, 14th, and 21st from 11:45-1:00 pm.

Working with aerial silks is a wonderful complement to any fitness program. You don’t need any previous dance or aerial experience, either. The silk hammocks help stabilize your joints, strengthen muscles, and facilitate deep stretching of your spine, hips, and shoulders. In fact, it temporarily alleviates chronic pain and releases pressure points – similar to a massage.

Still wondering about aerial workouts? Let’s hear some testimonials from individuals who recently tried CVDAerial.

“It was a unique and fun experience. I was unsure at first if I could participate, because I have a partial knee replacement and rheumatoid arthritis. With a few modifications and some one-on-one help from the instructors, I was able to participate fully. I actually gained confidence in my body and exceeded expectations for myself!

Sacrum Inversions look intimidating but a easy to achieve for all body types

The instructors, Kristen and Amanda, are skilled and knowledgeable. They provided a safe and excellent workout that addressed multiple fitness components: upper/lower body strength, core strength, stability, flexibility, balance, and relaxation. After class, my muscles felt like I had a workout, but I was relaxed. The pressure in my low back and pelvis was gone! I am ready for the next class!”


“I was able to participate in two CVDAerial classes and fell in love with aerial workouts! I was able to stretch tight muscles to feel relief but also left very relaxed. The next day I felt great! Kristen and Amanda were wonderful explaining the moves and giving guidance. I cannot wait to take the classes again! I highly recommend CVDAerial classes to anyone.”


Flexibility poses upside down are fun!

“I have taken lots of yoga, barre, Pilates classes but wasn’t sure what to expect with CVDAerial. It was a very positive experience! The silks enable deeper stretching and ease of holding the poses and stretches longer. They also help develop balance. The inversions are super fun and do something wonderfully funky to your well-being. I loved being cocooned in the silks at the beginning and end of class – perhaps it’s the weightlessness? – the relaxation goes to an almost mystical level. My body and spirit felt like they had gotten a massage.”


“The candlelight aerial class is magical. I really enjoyed how relaxing it was and how much fun I had learning to use the hammocks to do different poses and tricks. The instruction was easy to follow and allowed for differences in flexibility and comfort level. I would highly recommend this class for anyone.”
