After communities everywhere have been on mandatory shut down for months in response to coronavirus, we are beginning to hear a lot of discussion about the world (and its beloved aerial studios) re-opening in various stages.

As aerial artists, it's important to pay special attention to preparation when it comes to returning to our craft after time off.

You may have already been using this unplanned downtime to get grounded and more focused on your life, your goals, and your next move. 

Spring is the perfect time to prioritize. And in our current era, the practice of getting clear can mean more now than ever. 

Taking an extended break from your aerial training schedule can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it means much-needed rest and recuperation. On the other hand, we might lose some strength and flexibility. To successfully return to the air, make sure you are primed and prepared both physically and mentally.

Here are a few quick tips for reintroducing yourself to your aerial passion: 

  • Ensure that yourrigging is in shape. You can take advantage of this time to do a bit of spring cleaning for your equipment.
  • Take it slow if you haven't been doing much aerial during your hiatus. Stay present with yourself, listen to internal cues, and honor how your body responds to getting back up in the air. 
  • Muscles will atrophy with extended time off, but they, too, will "comeback" quickly with proper training. Consider stepping up your conditioning routine and keeping up with it.
  • Always do a thoroughwarm-up before any aerial activity. This will help prevent further setbacks.
  • Aim high with your goals, but be nice to yourself as you get back to your love of aerial arts.

It may be tempting to jump back into aerial practice full force, but make sure you are physically prepared to avoid injury. That way, we can return to our love of the air safely.
