This week our Class Spotlight falls on Aerial Fit at Skylab Studio. Team Wonderush went to Skylab studio a couple of weeks ago. It was a great class, and a one-of-a-kind experience. We worked muscles we didn’t know existed. We also took some time afterwards to talk to Astra, our taskmaster (in a lovely way) and the lady behind Skylab:
How would you describe your teaching style?
I would like to think it’s a balance of great content as well as me not taking it all too seriously. It is after all meant to be fun. If you are not having fun and learning something at the same time then I’m doing my job wrong!
Why would you recommend your class?
It’s a super fun way to get fit. You are so busy focusing on how to do the tricks that you don’t really notice how much of an upper body workout you are getting. It’s also challenging which gives you a rush of satisfaction when you finally nail that move you’ve been working on. And if you’ve been coming to class a while you end up learning a new skill that you can show off to all your mates!
Can you tell us something surprising about yourself?
Hhhhhhmmmm can’t think of anything right now – can I get back to you on that…!
What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not at Skylab?
My friend has launched a night called the Suppertub – al fresco dinner in a hot tub by the canal! It’s been my favourite hang out of late. Being a hot tub fan anyway this is just so civilised – the perfect place to chill out after a hard days training or teaching and let those muscles unwind. Other than that I love to get out of London and go and explore the countryside – it’s so relaxing to just be in nature. Breathe the fresh air and get some peace and quiet. I love London but there is only so much of the hectic pace I can handle.
What’s your favourite part of London? Any places you’d recommend?
I love the Roundhouse – it’s one of my fave venues. I also love the Southbank as there is always a ton of cool stuff going on there especially in Summer. I guess I love the Thames river in general, especially at night. I still get excited seeing all the buildings and bridges all lit up and looking so pretty. Makes me feel thrilled to be living in London.
If you could try any experience in the world, what would it be, and why?
I still want to go swim with the dolphins – I love the ocean and water in general and dolphins seem like such beautiful creatures. I think it would be an amazing experience to swim amongst them out in the wild.
If you find yourself at a loose end you should definitely get yourself over to Skylab. It’s a fantastic place to hang out (sorry not sorry for the pun). Wonderush
