Saturday 30th June 2018
Vayu Aerial Yoga, is a practice that has been developed to create space mentally and physically, by opening up the body through various postures using our custom designed yoga swing.
Using the support of the swing to move through various postures we are able to challenge and create space within the body whilst allowing the nervous system to relax, encouraging a letting go into complete surrender. Inverting the body while suspended in the air not only provides many physical benefits such as spinal decompression, it also expands the mind by creating confidence, overcoming fear and allowing new found freedom and bringing a playful light energy to our hearts.

Let’s be anatomy nerds and play with movement efficiency! Let’s make you a better performer!
Injury prevention is split up into two sessions which will cover different material. Attend one or both!
Contemporary Dance – Maire Dee
A traditional dance class with warm up, center work, and movement across the floor. Something for non-dancers and dancers alike.
Fabric Sequences – Lydia Lara
In this 2 hour workshop you will learn/review a series of phrases including climbs, skills, and drops focusing on flow and transitions. You will be guided through an intention, quality, or technical exercise to help you add texture to your performance. The last 30 minutes of class will be dedicated to putting a combination together using the phrases learnt during class. Small groups will perform for the rest of participants. Don’t panic! You will be just fine.
Prerequisites: You must be able to execute 3 consecutive short arm/straight legs straddle inverts in the air. Clean single star and salto drops. You must be able to stay in the air for at least 3 minutes with resting poses as needed.
Dance Trapeze – Oliver Smith-Wellnitz
This workshop is for those who are curious about dance trapeze, or would like to explore it more but don’t necessarily want to commit to a full week of classes. The most exciting things about dance trapeze are the possibilities for spinning, swinging, and otherwise taking up as much space as possible, so that’s what we’re going to do! After a basic conditioning/warmup sequence, we will explore some basic trapeze technique and sequences, and then try to do them again while the trapeze is in movement. We will also look at swinging technique before finishing the class with everyone’s favourite, spinning (don’t worry, we won’t go crazy)!
Hula Hoops – Oliver Smith-Wellnitz
This workshop is for everyone! If you are reading this and saying to yourself “I could barely even do it on my waist when I was a child” this is especially for you! (Really!)
An introduction to all things hula hoops, we will start with a basic warmup before exploring and discovering all of the different places with which we can hoop. We have all hooped on our waist before, but what about on our elbows? Our feet? What about hula hooping on your butt? It’s all possible! From there we will move on to try some manipulation and isolation exercises before stringing together some fun sequences. We all love to be in the air, but sometimes it’s necessary to get back on the ground and play!
Let’s finish the day elongated and relaxed!!
