What you'll do

Join us for a private, one-of-a-kind, upside-down experience!

I know what you're thinking: I wouldn't be able to do this. Right? Well, you're wrong. I teach kids from 3 years of age to adults up to 80 years old, I tailor my experiences to your strength and ability. So, no excuses.

How does it work? Join us at Paragym for an aerial silks, hammock or an acrobatic fusion course where you will learn techniques to climb silks, to wrap yourself into 'foot locks' and "hip locks and to do easy 'drops'.

This is a fun, level-friendly aerial acrobatics course suitable for all. Our packages cater to all sizes, ages and interests.

Try our aerial hammock course for inverted yoga & flexibility training. Our aerial fusion courses trains technique on various pieces of aerial equipments such as hammocks, silks, lyras. Our most popular course, aerial silks, will likely have you going home to continue courses locally.

After a fun 10 minute warm up, we'll get right into it. You'll learn techniques to climb a piece of fabric using your feet like a monkey (easier than you think!) and you'll invert (go upside down) to create beautiful acrobatic figures that you can show off at home. There is a 10 minute photoshoot at the end of the course to photograph all you've learnt.

Learn to be an acrobat while visiting Montreal, the circus capital of the world. Check the reviews and book now :)
Other things to note

Alissa is a great instructor and we had a wonderful time. Alissa works through the basics in detail on the ground, so that once you are on the rope you are comfortable with the manoeuvres. There's loads of individual attention and overall it was a thoroughly entertaining session. I absolutely recommend giving aerial a chance on your next trip to Montréal.

Really great experience with a knowlegeable host. She was on time, kept us safe and got us up to the top of the silks. Will do this again, next time Im in the city 🙂

Super expérience! Alyssa est une excellente coach qui met en confiance et ose nous pousser hors de notre zone de confort si elle nous juge capable de nous améliorer. Belle découverte qui m'a donné le goût de développer cette activité

This experience was so fun!!! We learned new skills and gained comfort in hanging from, twisting, and climbing fabric in acrobatic fashion. Now when our friends see our photos, they gasp and ask how we did that! We'd totally recommend Alissa's memorable experience!

Alissa est fantastique et notre expérience a été vraiment géniale. Alissa a été extrêmement attentive à ce que tout se passe bien, à nous mettre à l'aise, nous avons vécu un moment inoubliable. Le professionnalisme, la simplicité, l'ouverture et l'intérêt d'Alissa envers les autres est palpable. Elle a réussi à me donner confiance en moi et à repousser mes limites au delà de ce que je pouvais imaginer.

I love Alissa, she’s an amazing instructor. The class is super fun and she’s also very encouraging. It was also very intimate with 4 of us in the class. I would highly recommend aerial yoga after my experience! ❤️
