Aerial Classes

Alongside the adult gymnastics sessions Southwark Gymnastics Club also runs affordable aerial silks and rope classes for adults. Aerial training is a great way to increase core and upper body strength whilst gaining a new skill.

Every session includes a warm up with the adult gymnastics class before moving on to the aerial equipment.

All of our aerial sessions are held at Brunswick Park Primary School (Sports Hall), Picton Street, Camberwell, SE5 7QH

Nope. If you have experience in disciplines like gymnastics, dance, climbing and yoga you may find certain moves easier but, as the way in which you use your muscles in aerial is so unique, the best (and most fun) way to gain strength for aerial is by doing aerial!

You will start with a 30 min warm up with the adult gymnastics class combining cardio, conditioning and dynamic stretching to make sure all your joints are fully warm. You then move onto the equipment to learn climbs and strengthening exercises before moving onto positions, wraps and (eventually) drops and choreography. The last few minutes of class are spent doing cool down which involves lengthening and stretching out all the muscles used in the session.

As with any physical activity there are risks involved, however if you follow instructions from your aerial coach it is as safe as any other rigorous physical activity or sport. Most moves can be practised low to the ground to start with and mats are always used under the aerial equipment. All our aerial coaches have at least 4 years aerial experience and won’t allow you to climb high or do drops until they can see that you are safe to do so.
