You should wear form fitting clothing, in breathable cotton fabrics. New aerial students may also want to wear a shirt that covers the underarms, as some of the wraps may cause discomfort at first.
Leggings, fitted yoga pants, tanks, t-shirts, and other yoga basics all work great. Please avoid clothing with a shiny or slippery surface and anything non-breathable, as these can become very uncomfortable as the detoxifying poses often stimulate a lot of sweating. Women may want to want to wear a properly fitted sports bra, as wardrobe issues during inversions and other upside down poses and transitions are not uncommon. While many men prefer to wear shorts, new male student may want to wear pants until they become more comfortable in the wraps.
For safety concerns as well as to protect the hammock fabric, what NOT to wear is more of a concern. You must remove all of the following items before class as they will damage the silks:
- Clothing with gems
- or other sharp or abrasive surfaces
