6 Week Aerial Silks 101 Workshop with Samantha Melendy
Where: Om Studios Carmel
Cost: $150 for all 6 days or $30 drop in
Curious about the aerial silks but not sure if you are ready to commit to weekly classes? You don’t have to run away and join the circus to explore the world of aerial acrobatics. Learn in a safe and supportive environment with the coaching of aerialist Samantha Melendy. This specialty workshop is the perfect introduction to the silks and will give you a taste of all the basics. Each student will experiment with climbs, inverts, locks, and slides on the aerial fabric. Working together in small groups, we will practice new moves at our own pace. Workshops include basic warm-ups, conditioning (pull-ups, grip work and deep abdominal strengthening), and beginner moves, vocabulary and technique (climbs, splits, inverts, foot locks, ankle hangs, etc.).
No matter your age, flexibility, or strength, aerial silks can be adapted to fit your level of fitness. From tots to seniors, all ages are welcome. As long as you come to class with a “can-do” attitude, there’s no doubt you’ll leave feeling surprised of what you’re really capable of!
What to wear: Tight fitting yoga clothes are usually all you need to practice aerial. Wear tight starchy pants that go past your knees and bring an extra shirt with long sleeves to wear over a tank top. Other options include wearing a leotard and tights with stirrups. No jewelry. No shoes or socks when on the silks.
