There's no question that we are witness to an unprecedented era, emphasizing life's many uncertainties and aggravating our everyday fears.
Your aerial studio is probably closed at the moment, and on top of dealing with the realities of daily life and an actual pandemic, you're also worried about missing so many days of aerial practice.
We're grounded at the moment, and it's an aerialist's nightmare.
But don't despair! It's easy to discover a movement practice on the floor to stay aerial fit at home, even without exercise gear and even without a lot of space.
As aerialists, we're at home in the air. But grounding work is also a blessing to your aerial practice, pandemic or no. Staying connected to the floor will assist you when you return to aerial arts. You'll explore movement pathways and techniques for being alive in your body.
Home Conditioning for Aerial Strength
Downtime is an opportunity to enhance floor-based strength which readily translates to the air. If you haven't already, clear a spot for exercise.
Making Your Comeback
When you stay aerial ready in your downtime, strength comes back easily and quickly when you make your return to aerial arts. Hang in there. We are all in this together!
For many aerialists and aerial yogis, an outdoor setup is ideal for the practice. It’s true that a portable rig makes aerial arts accessible in virtually any location. It can open doors to opportunities and offer rigging solutions to that familiar dilemma: where to find space to work.
What better way to celebrate these values than to fly free out in the open air?
