I have been teaching but not taking classes consistently since I started a new job with a longer commute a few months back. I made a goal to start taking a real class again and I started that class on Saturday. :-)

We don't really have room for the fly gym. We have 2 rooms in our studio. Poles take up one room and the hammocks the second. We have had Karol Helms at our studio a couple times for workshops.

Acro is sometimes referred to as acro yoga. (People doing balances together: eg. handstands on someone's shoulders and various other stuff. Spanish rope is a webbed rope with a loop near the top. You can do things on the rope like scorpion, etc., and you can hang from the loop and do things (spins, etc). The webbing makes the rope feel better than a normal rope that you might climb at a gym.

If you go to Airotique Aerial Fitness, Virginia Beach, they post pictures of all the things they do there.

My studio has aerial hammocks, pole, TRX, and Kangoo. We can't do any other aerial arts because our ceilings are also too low. We are working on bringing in the FlyGym into my studio and it will definitely be going into the studio a little further north as their ceilings are higher. I want to go to the Trapeze School downtown, but I haven't made it yet. I think I am putting it on my 2013 bucket list :)

If you are interested in the FlyGym, Karol Helms is coming up to teach some workshops and trainings the first weekend in February.

What is spanish rope and acro?

My goals:
- Lose 5 pounds

Hey, I'd love to meet you! The aerial school in Virginia Beach is Airotique. I'm sure you probably have better ones in D.C. Robin, the instructor at the once a week silks class in Richmond comes from DC. Here in Richmond, all we have is 4 silks they put up in a rented space once a week. The school in Virginia Beach has a dedicated space. They have lyra, spanish rope, hammocks, acro, static trapeze but no flying trapeze. The owner is very nice, and I really enjoy going there. It's just too far to go on a regular basis especially since I teach several nights at the pole school in Richmond. We have pole and hammock there. Ceilings aren't high enough for anything else.

I actually live in the DC area so I am not too far from you. Sadly, I know the traffic well as I think I spend half my life in it. Maybe I will have to road trip it down there to check the scene out :)

I live in a suburb of Richmond, VA (not a long drive to Virginia Beach). There is a good aerial school there. There are several in the Washington DC area, but traffic that way is so much worse, I avoid it!

Get back out to the aerial studio in Virginia Beach and do more lyra (aerial hoop) and Spanish rope!
