The Yoga Room 3/F Studio

 

As an award-winning Broadway Aerial Choreographer who brought the aerial arts to Broadway, Christopher Harrison is proud to announce AntiGravity® AIRbarre.  This extensive Aerial Dance Conditioning program is, the newest Aerial Fitness technique to come out of AntiGravity Fitness, Originators of the Suspension Fitness and Aerial Yoga genres.  Harrison was assisted in the creation of this exciting new program by Certified AntiGravity Master Instructor Trainer, Lorianne Major.

 

Dance develops ideal bodylines through the toning and lengthening of muscles, while also developing balance and agility.  Recently, new methods of ballet barre training have found their way into fitness studios as participants notice the many benefits of training physical grace. AntiGravity’s version, AIRbarre, challenges the body and mind beyond the vertical plane and up into the air!

 

“Dance classes always start at the barre with pliés.  As a disciplined Broadway dancer and guest artist with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet for numerous years, this classical form of training has been deeply engrained into my psyche.  Transferring much of the movements to a silk hammock that allows for 3d movement on multiple planes has been thrilling. The beautiful and talented Lorianne Major has helped me  put together this latest AntiGravity technique with playful class designs that inspire movement. It is accessible to non-dancers, with the Harrison Hammock helping them find alignment, and also challenges accomplished dancers, giving them more airtime in jumps!” Christopher Harrison, creator.

 

Whether you are a fitness enthusiast eager to try to new forms, a dancer who wants to explore the air or an aerialist who wants to work on lovely lines, AntiGravity AIRbarre will get you up and flying!

 

AntiGravity® Fitness is recognized by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America as a Continuing Education Provider.
