Strengthening and flexibility

Strengthening and Flexibility

 In this course we will discover our personal limits in relation to flexibility, strength, and the body's agility.

The first part of the lesson will focus on exercises to increase strength and endurance, as well as movement patterns on the floor. In the second part, through relaxation and flexibility exercises, the body will have the opportunity to explore its boundaries and capabilities.

The goal of the lessons is to provide the body with comprehensive preparation so that it can express itself in the air with clean lines through technical and strength exercises.

The lesson is suitable for anyone looking to develop strength and flexibility, including aerial acrobatics students, and is suitable for all levels, whether for beginners who want to prepare their bodies to engage with aerial equipment or for advanced individuals looking to improve their technique.
