I thought I would try out aerials once, but then I ended up going to aerials class many times a week for a month. The instructors are supportive and thorough. The cushions on the ground really absorb shock from falls (the resident circus dog is obsessed about taking mat naps). It is easy to social distance because class sizes are small. I am confident I that the facility and instructors will keep everyone safe even while we are hanging upside down from my knees.
