If you've ever had the desire to channel your inner acrobat, AIR Aerial Fitness is for you. Fitted with innovative but effective silk loops hanging from the ceiling just begging to be climbed on, twisted, scaled, swung upon and cocooned into, you can choose a high-energy, high-resistance fitness class or a more mellow and contemplative yoga class, which ends with complete envelopment into your own private, silky-soft bat cave. Predicated on the theory that hanging upside down can help with increased lung capacity and inner flow, much of what AIR turns on its head are the basic tenets of rigorous athletic conditioning, ballet, Pilates and yoga. There's a palpable thrill to mastering some of these moves. If at first you don't succeed, it's guaranteed that you will have a ball try, trying again to stick that workout pose in grand, core-strengthening style.
