The course can form part of your Home Ed Curriculum involving physical activity, social skills and performing arts.

The Minis class is aimed at 4 – 8 year olds while the Juniors is for 8+.  Both sessions are held on a Wednesday morning at the Yoga Life Studio in South Street.

Active Cherubs

This class is suitable for children age 6 – 16 and is situated in a fully equipped Aerial Fitness Studio.  Classes involve a short ground-skills session, followed by a warm up.  Students are then divided in to age / size / experience related groups to work on aerial equipment.    As with all Aerial Studios this one is cold during the colder weather so ensure you bring layers and parents wishing to stay and watch will also want to wrap up!  Mondays 5 - 6pm.
