What people are saying about Aerial Yoga
As a chiropractor and a pole dancer, I am always on the lookout for an exercise regime that promotes both strength and flexibility. I definitely found this with Fly Gym! Not only was I activating many important core stabilising muscles, I found the range of motion I created in my shoulders and hips was remarkable! This was all done in a low impact environment, which is ideal for healthy joints. I would reccomend this form of exercise not only for those wanting to fine tune their fitness, but those looking to start their fitness journey with low impact, effective exercise, that can be so easily personalised to your own fitness ability. Any age, any ability - and it's fun too!Dr Jess Hambly Sep 2013

Thank you very much for the trial of Fly Gym yesterday. It was lots of fun and a great exercise session at the same time. I do think it is a fantastic alternative to usual gym training. Due to it being non weight bearing i think it will prevent a lot of typical injuries that gym goers experience. It was a great shoulder, core and back extension workout with little chance of injury when performed under your supervision. I would be happy to refer my non acute clients to your class. It would be a great rehab program for lower back and shoulder patients. And those interested in a new and different way to exercise
