Aerial Acrobatics at Knotty Yoga
Knotty Yoga is ideally suited for learning aerial acrobatics. The studio features a grid of 24 fabrics, four ropes, and five trapezes with a studio wide padded floor. The core Knotty Yoga classes familiarize students with the aerial apparatus of fabric, rope, and trapeze as well as developing the strength and flexibility needed to work with them. Basic tricks are also incorporated into classes. In addition, the studio offers a set of classes focused on an individual apparatus.
