Whether times are good or extremely challenging, many of us need a community to embrace -- even if our only way to connect has been virtual for much of 2020.

For the past several months, the world has been turned on its head, and we have all felt the consequences.

Now that some aerial studios are allowed to start to open up again, many aerialists and aerial yogis will be breathing a sigh of relief as they anticipate getting back to the practice. 

Studios are likely to have a different feel to them, with a cap on the number of students in a class. You may have access to your own apparatus for use during your sessions, and you may also be asked to clean it when you’re finished. But if you or your studio are not quite ready yet to begin again, you can still reach out to those in your community, see how people are doing, and take in some much-needed support yourself.

Here are a few ideas for aerial community building:

Nurture friendships  by getting in touch and finding out more about how your buddies have been coping with recent events. 

Organize a skill share  either online or in person and show off the skills you’ve been working on lately. 

Create an aerial trivia game  by researching facts and seeing how much you and your friends already know. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your favorite form of exercise.

Do floor-based workouts together  as a group via video call to work on your conditioning and prepare for your triumphant return to being in the air, working out, or performing.

In order to be successful on your return to aerial work, it’s wise to make sure you’re ready for the game again. By making connections with others from your class or community, you can get a head start.
