I did my first Aerial Silks level 1 class last night with Gabrielle and it was AMAZING! The warm up alone was so filled with so much energy yet it was so fun. I do Lyra, Aerial Yoga and just started Static Trapeze and have always wanted the chance to try traditional Silks but have never had the chance until now. This studio is so CLEAN! First and foremost. Through these times, going to aerial facilities or gyms can be questionable to some, but they really make sure to keep a high level of sanitation everywhere. The instructor was fantastic and worked with everyone individually and as a whole, if they were at different levels she rolled with it and didnt let it mess anyone else up and I loved that. The owner is the sweetest and I would definitely recommend this facility. I can not wait to keep going with Silks!
