Jennifer Kennedy

Upon moving to Charlottesville in 2013 Jenn took Eliza's class by accident and instantly knew her practice would transform.
She found her 'home' with Flydog and completed 200-hr YTT with Eliza Whiteman while also recieving her Aerial level 1 certificate from Aircat Aerial Arts.
Her passion for teaching Aerial stems from 'stepping outside of your comfort zone'- she was hooked first flip!
Every class is taught with the intention of creating a playful yet informative experience, she likes to focus on building strength, body-breath awareness, and proper technique. She lives for the look on a students face when they achieve a skill - Priceless!
Focus on core stabilization, body control, whole body strength and balance and releasing tension to maximize your flexibility.
 
In this highly athletic class, you will have so much fun on our aerial hammocks that you won't even realize you are also building the power to do pull ups and handstands and yoga inversions with correct alignment and the support of the aerial silks.
 
Wherever you are in your practice, come and enjoy using the aerial silks to get stronger!
 
It is very important for students to arrive a minimum of 10 minutes before the start of class so that their hammock may be sized properly. Students who do not arrive at least five minutes before the start of class may find their spot has been given to a standby student.
 
Clothing requirements: short or long sleeves (no tank tops); no zippers or metal. No jewelry.
Physical Restrictions: Please talk to the instructor before class if you have any concerns. People who have heart disease, high blood pressure, vertigo, eye diseases (such as glaucoma), or are pregnant should consult their doctors first before trying inversions.
