One of the first questions we get asked by potential new students is… ‘What should I wear?’
If you need specifics on each class, we have listed an appropriate apparel listing at the bottom of every individual class post, but this is the basics for you to to view just now.
Pole, Polesilks & Hoop
Shorts and T-shirt/Vest for beginners. Please note that bare legs are essential for maintaining correct grip to the apparatus.
Gloves are not recommended as they do not allow the skin to be conditioned to contact with the apparatus.
Silks, Hammock & Yogaerial
Leggings and T-shirt/Vest. Due to the friction created between you and the aerial fabric, we recommend leggings as they help stop rubbing and give some protection against friction burns.
Gloves are not recommended for beginners due to them not allowing any skin conditioning.
Fitness Based Classes
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in as long as it’s relatively form fitting due to baggier clothes being unsuitable for work on apparatus.
Dance Based Classes
Shorts or leggings with a comfortable top.
Specific shoes may be needed depending on the class, so please check your specific class for further info.
Things which may be handy.
For pole and hoop a cloth or towel is handy to wipe down the apparatus. Antibacterial spray is provided by the studio.
For Dance or Floor work classes, knee pads can be handy, the soft stretchy type is perfect. Ballet pumps are also great for those who don’t want to be barefoot where applicable.
