so those of you who are afraid of heights...fear not!

Should I eat before class?
This is a personal preference. However, we recommend at least eating something light to prevent any dizziness.
What if I'm late to class or have to leave early?
Arrive 5-10 minutes prior to class start time in order to check-in and ready your hammock. Once class begins the main studio entrance will be locked. If you must leave early, please notify the instructor before class begins to ensure a non-disruptive exit.
What if I'm new to yoga?
No worries! Newcomers are always welcome at Sky's The Limit - Aerial Fitness & Yoga classes.
How are AntiGravity Fitness classes different from other aerial classes?
AntiGravity Fitness was founded in 2007 by Christopher Harrison, a world-renowned gymnast, Broadway dancer and producer/director/choreographer of aerial entertainment. Christopher spent years perfecting aerial techniques and its equipment before AntiGravity Fitness classes were introduced to the public. AntiGravity Fitness is globally recognized by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. It extends to nearly 50 countries and can be found in 700 locations worldwide. Sky's The Limit - Aerial Fitness & Yoga is the first certified AntiGravity Fitness location in Connecticut!
