Workshops with Aaron Koz

Workshops with Aaron Koz 
Friday October 6 & Sunday October 8

Aerial Straps Level 1
Friday October 6, 6:30-8:00 pm, $50

This workshop will focus on the fundamental techniques for safe and effective training of aerial straps, though most exercises will greatly increase your power and control on other apparatus.  We will warm up our shoulders and core using a set of exercises designed to pre-habilitate and
strengthen the shoulders. The fundamental skills students will cover are static positions (meathook, inverted straddle, nutcracker) on both arms, and potentially 1 arm. The end of the workshop will focus on 2 and 1-arm spinning using the dynamic technique of flares to invert to different positions. This workshop will be beneficial for first timers and aerial artists who work on other apparatus.

Prerequisite: 2 arm inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up) 1-arm hangs with engaged shoulder for 30 seconds, and 30 second wall handstand or 1-minute plank

Aerial Straps Level 2

Prerequisite: Experience with flag/reverse meathook, multiple straight arm inversions of any kind (straddle-up, tuck-up, pike-up), 1-arm hangs with engaged shoulder for 30 seconds, and 30-second wall handstand or 1-minute plank

Partnering on Straps
Sunday October 8, 2:00 – 3:30 pm, $50

Students will explore duo positions on straps. This workshop will explore partnering and weight bearing on the ground and then move to the air. Students will also explore the way spins and momentum can augment and alter partnered movement.

Prerequisite:  Students should be comfortable hanging from 1 arm for 25 seconds and supporting their body weight by 2 arms for 1-minute.
