Your First Class
Arrive 10 min early
Avoid slippery material clothing (cotton is best)
Wear a fitted shirt with sleeves. Tank tops expose sensitive skin under the arms to rubbing, which can leave marks on your skin. Once you get used to moving with the fabric and you can keep it away from your under arms (as a beginner this is tough to do), you are welcome to wear a tank top.
Remove all jewelry that may get caught on or snag the hammock. Especially rings!
Avoid eating an hour before class please...!
A yoga mat is NOT needed. Our floors are super soft.
Beginners please be mindful of the class level and your experience. Faster paced + advanced classes are not slowed for beginners.
Flight Classes for Beginners
We recommend starting with the Flight Foundations Intro Workshop for the best start to an aerial practice but understand that’s not always possible due to schedules. Newbies are always welcome in regular group classes as well!
Beginner-friendly group classes: Beginner Flight, Zen Flight, Yin Flight, Barre Flight & Fit Flight
Precautions and Requirements
Our staff has expert training to guide you through the class and can make recommendations and suggestions for you to reach health goals, but we are not physicians. Your concerns on health related issues, medications and appropriateness of exercise and aerial yoga in particular should be thoroughly discussed with your personal health care provider before partaking in any fitness routine.
Your first few classes may be a little uncomfortable at times as your body adjusts to the pressure of the hammock. This also tells you that you are releasing tension and tightness as that is normally what causes the discomfort.
Studio Details & Parking
Our schedule will display classes at both our Ballard and Central District locations—make sure to select your class at the right studio! Both studios have restrooms, water and cubbies to store your items during class. Our CD studio is surrounded by ample free parking (in the evenings you may need to park a block or two off of Hiawatha) and our Ballard studio has a free parking lot in front of the studio, free parking behind the studio (gravel lot next to railroad) and free public street parking. Please note that there is a large construction project on NW Market, which impacts traffic near the Ballard studio as well as street parking options.
Booking your Hammock
We use Pike13 as our reservation system to book classes, so you’ll need to create a Pike13 account. Because many classes do sell out, we suggest you pre-reserve your class in advance! After you’ve created your online profile and purchased your class package or plan, you’ll be able to secure your spot.
Please note: we ask for 12 hours notice for cancelations. Ready to book? Schedule your class here.
If you cannot make a class you've signed up for, please cancel within 12hrs of class start time (6 hrs for VIP members).
Late cancels will result in loss of class credit for class packages or a $15 late cancel/no show fee for unlimited pass holders (including New Student passes). If a valid CC is not on file, the pass may be cancelled.
Cancelling or Rescheduling Class
I’m on the Waitlist
Good news: over half of the people who sign up on the waitlist end up getting into the class! If you sign up on the waitlist, please plan on making it to the class.
You can be added to the class up to one hour before the class begins. You will receive an email and/or text notification that you have made it into the class. Your notification preferences can be set or changed by logging into your account and changing them in the settings.
If you make other plans after signing up, be sure to cancel your waitlist reservation to leave room for the people who can attend.
Membership Cancellations & Holds
Monthly auto-pay memberships can be cancelled any time after any minimum commitment period is met by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a 30 day notice required for cancellations. Holds can be placed for a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 3 months. Note: there is a hold fee of $20. Once the hold frame time has expired, the membership will automatically resume.
