KINETIX – NATURAL MOVEMENT
WHAT IS KINETIX? – ALSO KNOWN AS HUMAN KINETICS, IS THE SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
Kallisthenics (Callisthenics) comprises of Kallie’s creative approach to maintaining a healthy lifestyle for children and adults. It is a form of exercise consisting of a variety of simple, often rhythmical, movements, generally without using equipment or apparatus. They are intended to increase body strength and flexibility with movements such as bending, jumping, swinging, twisting or kicking, using only one’s body weight for resistance. They are usually conducted in concert with Calistenics. Calisthenics when performed vigorously and with variety can benefit both muscular and cardiovascular fitness, in addition to improving psycho-motor skills such as balance, agility and coordination.

AERIAL SILKS & AERIAL YOGA
AERIAL ARTS CLASSES
1 hour long, focused on learning new skills and/or reviewing and perfecting technique. We recommend warming yourself up before the start of class. Classes include an aerial warm-up, but your personal floor warm-up will help you to execute class exercises safely. (Beginner classes include instruction for proper floor warm-up.
All classes will conclude with body conditioning and/or stretching on the apparatus. Aerial classes have a maximum of 5-6 students to ensure sufficient time on the apparatus for each person. All Aerial classes are for ages 5 and up, but private lessons are available for younger students. Private lessons and semi-private lessons are available upon request, for more individual attention.
Silks, also called Fabric or Tissu, are one long piece of fabric attached in the middle to the ceiling to create two long tails. In this class you will learn to climb, invert in the air, and hang upside down. As you increase strength and comfort-level, you will learn sequences, drops, slides, and flips that allow you to descend the fabric with style and grace.
Lyra, also called Hoop, is a steel ring hung vertically by one or two ropes. At Kinetix we teach Lyra as a single-point apparatus. In this class you will learn poses and moves on and above the hoop. As you become more advanced, you will learn to spin the apparatus as you execute skills and poses.
