INFORMED CONSENT

The aims of all classes at the aerial lounge (fitness, stretch, dance, aerial hoop, trapeze, silks, sling, yoga, pole fabric, pole flow and pole fitness) are to improve cardio-vascular fitness, muscular fitness, flexibility, motor skills, transitions/movements and help build your confidence on and off the apparatus.

 

All session will begin with a warm up then a recap of moves learnt the previous week. We will then learn a series of new moves or transitions. This will sometimes follow with a routine, finishing with a cool down, sometimes incorporating stretches to improve flexibility.

 

Please notify the instructor before the session if you have sustained any injuries, illnesses or medical conditions or if you feel there are parts of the session you are unable to take part in. Participation is completely voluntary. All information given to the instructor is completely private and confidential under data protection legislation.

 

Please ask as many questions as possible during the session, especially if you do not completely understand any move that is demonstrated. As with all exercise, classes at the aerial lounge carry an element of risk and you may experience some bruising or burn, tenderness around the backs of your knees, feet, shins, waist, the palms of your hands and you may feel slightly achy for a few days afterwards.
