Learn to fly and take your floor practice to new heights! Drop your fears and explore a sense of freedom using a soft fabric hammock that supports up to 1,000 pounds and suspends you into inversions just two to three inches off the ground. 

Your aerial hammock will move you through traditional poses and assist your body to take on more challenging poses without strain, force, or effort. You will be able to achieve proper alignment, deeper stretches, and more release in the joints and muscle fibers; gain abdominal and upper body strength, and conquer inversions. 

Register online or by calling 410-531-0800 or visit the front desk. Members can register 7 days in advance. Non-members can register 24 hours in advance. Email for more information.
