We take pride in the team of instructors that we have built over the years (some were also students at Urban Aerial Fitness!) As avid practitioners of the aerial arts, our instructors understand the journey each of our clients experience.
Our instructors are experts at breaking down complex movement so they are easier to understand. They also know the necessary conditioning a student must achieve before performing certain moves. Finally, since safety always comes first, they ensure you will learn in a safe way, to minimize risk of injury.
