Learn to fly with us! Whether you're an experienced aerialist or a brand new beginner, we offer classes for any level every day of the week. Our Intro to Fly Workshop is strongly recommended for new aerialists to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of silks and trapeze. We have ongoing classes, as well as 4, 6, and 8-week session workshops on silks, trapeze, lyra, and more!

Yoga

Elevate your yoga practice to a new level! Aerial Yoga follows the same principles as mat-based yoga classes, while implementing a fabric hammock to provide stability and support as students move through their class flow. We offer Aerial Yoga classes in a variety of styles, to accommodate whatever type of workout our students are looking for.  Aerial Yoga-Basics is recommended for new students before progressing to our other Aerial Yoga offerings.

Fitness

These classes are for students looking to start a new strength-training regimen or seeking to mix up their current fitness routine.  FlyFit and Partner Acrobatics are open to students of all levels- no prior experience necessary!  Students participating in Aerial Conditioning should be familiar with basic aerial techniques such as climbing and inverting.

Youth

Our youth programs are designed in 8-week sessions. If you are interested in registering a child for any of these classes, please send an email with your child’s name, age, and desired class time, as you cannot complete the necessary steps online. All students must sign a safety waiver with parent or legal guardian signature, prior to participation. (This cannot be a friend’s parent, it MUST be a legal parent/guardian).

Teen

Our teen classes are specially-designed for students 11-16 years old. Beginners start with Teen Fly 1, to learn the basics of the silks and trapeze.  From there, students can choose to further develop technique on one or both apparatuses.  All of our teen classes are ongoing, so students are welcome to join and attend when it works best for their schedule.

 

Youth Camps

A-WOL Summer Camps for Youth and Teens! A-WOL offers a variety of camps to youth ages 4-11 and Teens ages 12-17. Camps take place in both our beautiful Portland Warehouse and outside in the trees at Mary S. Young park in West Linn. Over the course of the week campers will learn fun new aerial tricks using various apparatuses. Camps also include basic tumbling, dance, strength and flexibility training, as well as teaching students to utilize their creativity and expression. The week will culminate with a small performance for family and friends of what they have learned. This is sure to be a memorable experience for both campers and parents. Click here to register.

 

First time at A-WOL?

What do I wear?

We recommend students wear stretchy exercise-type clothing that allows you to move freely.  (Capri pants work best.) Our warehouse temperature fluctuates throughout the year so layers can be very helpful. No necklaces, rings, or large earrings are allowed. (They tend to get caught and can cause injury to you or other students or damage to the equipment.) Please refrain from wearing lotions (as this makes equipment difficult to grip) and perfume or oils (as they can be disruptive to other students’ enjoyment of the space).

What to bring?

A water bottle and a willingness to learn

Please Be on time to class! 

Warming up is the key to injury prevention. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late to the designated start time will be asked not to participate (and not eligible for a refund of the preregistration purchase).
