Getting Started

Welcome to the Urban Vybe Tribe!
We are so grateful that you are here!  Please take a moment to look over these tips and recommendations for attending your first few classes at Urban Vybe.
Check With Your Doctor
If you have any health issues or concerns, it is always best to check with your physician before starting any new activities. There are some health issues that may be adversely affected by exercising, or through the practice of specific yoga postures and/or breathing exercises. Other than obtaining your doctor’s approval, all we ask is that you come with an open heart and mind, that you have a deep desire for transformation, and that you always listen to your body – your inner teacher.
Reserve Your Space
We recommend that you reserve your space ahead of time on our Class Schedule Page or on our Free Urban Vybe phone App. You can make your reservation up to 7 days before the class starts. This guarantees that you will not be turned away if the class is full. We strictly limit the number of students to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience. This also helps to eliminate class disruptions by trying to cram too many students into an overly crowded class, or not having enough equipment for everyone. If class reservations are filled, we can put you on our waiting list, and if someone cancels you will be notified and added to the class. In case of cancellation, please notify us at least 3 hours before the class is scheduled to allow us the opportunity to contact our wait-listed members, and so your class-pack won’t be charged for a no-show.
Arrive 10-15 Minutes Before Class

Be respectful of the teacher and other students by arriving early. This is the one time during the day when you can let go of the demands of everyday life and focus on your own self-care. Don’t shortchange yourself by rushing in and/or showing up late. Give yourself plenty of time to check-in, put your items in the cubbies, set up your mat make sure you have water and a towel, gather any props/equipment you need for the class, etc.

The same rule applies to leaving class early. Unless if you have an emergency, stay until the end of class so as not to disrupt others. In our yoga classes, savasana or relaxation at the end is the most important and beneficial part of the practice. If you are not staying for the entire savasana, we ask that you quietly leave before savasana so as not to disturb your fellow classmates.

Dress Appropriately
Wear clothing that is comfortable, easy to move in, not too loose, yet not too confining. Test your clothes at home in the mirror to make sure they are functional and not just fashionable. When you bend over, does your loose top come over your head? Those low-rise yoga pants or low-cut top may be adorable in the store, but notice what happens when you bend forward or come into an inversion. If you are participating in suspension training (Sky Aerial Yoga or Bodhi Suspension Training), wear clothing that hugs the body to prevent it from getting caught in the apparatus, and make sure your legs and armpits are covered to prevent chaffing. In all our yoga classes, we kindly ask that you remove your shoes and store them in the available cubbies. Yoga is practiced with bare feet. Storing shoes in the cubbies not only keeps the studios neat, it keeps the area free of obstacles.
Mind Your Scent
Be aware of strong perfumes and body odor. Many people are sensitive to odors or may be allergic to certain scents, which can negatively impact their experience.
Let the Teacher Know if you Have any Injuries or Health Concerns
Take some time before class to approach the teacher and let him/her know about your condition. They will often have great recommendations and modifications to help you get the most out of your experience without further injury. Our highly trained teachers use hands-on assists designed to guide you deeper into a pose or help with your form and alignment. If you have an injury, limitations, or just don’t like being touched, please tell your teacher before class. We also recommend scheduling private one-to-one sessions with one of our experienced teachers. They can help design a specific protocol for you to follow that can help speed your healing process.
Leave Your Cell Phone and Electronic Devices Outside the Room
It simply is not possible to concentrate on what you are doing when you have texts, tweets, and Facebook comments popping up on your cell phone screen. Cell phones can be distractions not only for you and your experience, but also for those around you. We adhere to a strict “No Cell Phone” policy in all of our classes. If you want your spouse or children to be able to reach you in case of emergency, give them the studio phone number (972) 691-8923, and we will notify you immediately if you get a call.
Make Sure you are Properly Hydrated

Drink plenty of water approximately 1-2 hrs before class. When your cells are hydrated, your bodily systems work at optimal levels. During or after attending any intense and/or heated class, you may feel tired, light-headed, or may experience headaches due to dehydration. We also recommend that you take an electrolyte supplement such as Nuun or Emergen-C before or after class to replenish the vital minerals/electrolytes that you need.

Eat Approximately 1.5 – 2 Hours Before Your Class
Most people will find that eating approximately 1.5 to 2 hours before a workout is best. Others may find that they need a little something like a small piece of fruit, yogurt, or half of an energy bar about an hour before class. If your stomach is empty, you will tap into your energy reserves faster, and will feel lighter and more energetic. If you have just eaten a big meal, attending a class may not be the best decision as you will often feel sluggish, and/or experience abdominal discomfort, and/or acid reflux during inversions. Listen to your body to find what works best for you.
Commit to Yourself
After taking your first class, you will have awakened and stimulated all of your bodily systems: respiratory, cardio-vascular, circulatory, digestive, and nervous. You will feel like a new person, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as every cell in your body has received an increased amount of nourishing and healing energy. Therefore, we recommend that you attend class every day, or as much as possible, and vary your training modalities, to begin to experience the cumulative effects of your hard work.
Rest When Needed
During our more challenging classes, you may begin to feel overheated, find it difficult to catch your breath, and feel physically and/or mentally fatigued. In such cases it is important to honor your body, be patient with your body, and listen to your body, by taking breaks when needed. Sit down and rest, breathe deeply, and drink plenty of water to allow your body to recover from the activity. If you feel that you need help because you are having difficulty breathing; can’t catch your breath; feel sick, extremely exhausted, or overheated; alert the teacher immediately. All of our teachers are CPR certified and trained to recognize any medical conditions or concerns. As your body begins to adapt to the practice, usually within 3 to 6 class sessions, you will see a tremendous transformation mentally and physically, and will need fewer periods of rest.
Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
Everyone comes to class with different abilities, issues, and goals. Each person progresses at his or her own pace depending on those abilities, and their own desires. In some cases being competitive is good; in others it can be destructive. Try not to compete, compare, or judge yourself or others. Rather, focus on yourself. Closing your eyes often works wonders and can enhance your own experience.
Spread Good Karma
A simple selfless act of kindness can change a person’s life forever. Welcome new students to class, smile at others and give them words of encouragement. Other ways to be helpful and kind are: Pick up your props and equipment and neatly put them away after class Place your belongings in a cubby to allow for more space in the studios and to prevent others from tripping over your items Always be willing to help others Let’s be the light of love and compassion.

Sky Aerial Fitness FAQs

What is Aerial Yoga?
This revolutionary approach to the practice of yoga combines all the elements of a traditional yoga class with the uniquely elevated elements of aerial arts. A yoga “hammock” or “silk” is attached to a specially designed steel support system and is used to hold you in your yoga poses in a completely new way. You will experience deeper stretching, expand your sense of balance, develop greater levels of strength and conditioning, enjoy the feeling of being completely inverted, feel tension and compression melt away, and find peace and relaxation like never before.
Who Can Come to Aerial Yoga?
If you are just getting started, we highly recommend that you attend one of our many Intro to Sky Aerial Yoga classes or workshops to give you the confidence and knowledge you need to enter our Level 1 classes. If you cannot make it to one of our Intro Sky Aerial Yoga classes or workshops, we recommend scheduling a private session with one of our Sky Aerial Yoga Teachers. While prior experience with yoga is helpful, it is not required.
Is There Anything I Should be Concerned About?
If you have any health issues or concerns, we strongly recommend that you talk to your doctor before scheduling your Sky Aerial Yoga session. Although aerial yoga is beneficial to many, there are certain health conditions that are a contraindication to aerial yoga. Participating in aerial yoga with the following conditions is not recommended:
  • Pregnancy: Many of the inversions can be uncomfortable and stressful to you and your baby.
  • Glaucoma, recent eye surgery, or brain injury: Because inverted poses can increase pressure in the brain, inverted aerial yoga poses are not recommended.
  • Low or high blood pressure, or any heart conditions: Sudden shifts in the intra-cellular pressure can adversely affect these conditions.
  • Vertigo: Sudden changes in position may trigger dizziness.
  • Recent Botox injections (within 48 hours): The reversed gravitational pull experienced during some aerial yoga poses may have an adverse effect on this procedure.
Not to fear! There are still some options for you to experience an aerial yoga class. We have restorative aerial yoga sessions which are a great alternative for many of these conditions. Please check our schedule for these specialty classes or contact us to schedule private sessions.
What Should I Bring?
Bring your yoga mat, a water bottle, socks/toe sox, a playful attitude, and an open mind!
What Should I Wear?
ALL JEWELRY MUST BE REMOVED BEFORE ALL AERIAL YOGA CLASSES Jewelry: We ask that you leave your bling at home. Although all exercise equipment is expected to receive normal wear and tear, jewelry often snags the silk fabric causing it to unravel, reducing its strength and effectiveness, and requiring premature replacement. Clothing: Please wear longer or capri-length, fitted, yoga pants, a short-sleeved shirt to reduce chaffing from skin/fabric contact, and socks/toe sox to keep our hammocks fresh and clean. Cleanliness: We discourage the use of oils and lotions on your body when performing aerial yoga. This keeps the silks clean and fresh for the next participant. *Socks/ToeSox are required for all aerial classes*
What Else Do I Need to Know?
Do not eat a heavy meal within the two hours prior to class as the many inversions, twists, turns, and bends performed during aerial yoga can cause digestive discomfort. Trust us…you will appreciate the advice. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class to complete the necessary paper work, and set up your hammock. Please arrive clean and scent- free. Other participants may be allergic, or experience adverse reactions to strong odors and fragrances. Hammocks may occasionally be shared or switched; please respect your fellow students.
How Do I Get Started?
We suggest that you always reserve a spot. A prepaid reservation guarantees your hammock. Walk-ins are welcome on a first-come-first-serve basis, but due to the small number of hammocks and intimate class size, a spot cannot be guaranteed. You can pre-register and reserve your spot on our website at, on your smart phone at MindBody Connect, or download our own free phone app Urban Vybe. Cash or credit card payments are available for walk-ins. Multi-class passes and unlimited monthly Sky Aerial Yoga memberships are also available for purchase in person as well as online.
What If I Have to Cancel?
Class reservations may be changed or canceled up to 8 hours before class is scheduled to begin. Class fees are non-transferable and non-refundable. However, we are happy to give you the option to reschedule provided you canceled 8 hours before your original class start time. Reschedules are accepted within 30 days of the initial class reservation. We highly discourage no-shows, so come and fly with us!
Do You Offer Other Options to Practice?
