Come join us for an unique opportunity here at the Academy of Aerial Fitness, for an aerial silk workshop brought to you by the famous Lisa Natoli!

Aerial Silks: Intuition and Technique:
This class is for aerialists with some experience who want to broaden their boundaries and identify habits, assumptions and expectations in their artistic practice. We will work towards creating a coherent, thinking body by building awareness using techniques and skills collected through research and experience. We will integrate transitions and "tricks" into sequences to become better technicians and performing artists, being mindful of question, "what are we choosing/drawing on and why?"

Sweat for Haiti

Power Yoga Friday, April 15th 7pm-8:30pm

100% of Proceeds goes to Educating Kids in Haiti.

Haitian Roots presents: Changing Haiti's future through education. Why education? Haiti is the poorest country in the West and it costs about $600/year for a child to attend school. However, the average family of 6 earns less than $500/year. When an individual is illiterate, they do not have the basic skills that a quality education offers and are often condemned to a life of poverty, ill health, and social exclusion. The good news is that education beats poverty. Children who attend school are not only healthier, better-nourished, and live more prosperous lives, but they become aware of their own potential in the world and are equipped with the life skills necessary to thrive in society.
