12 Hudson Valley Parent n February 2020 ME TIME ! Just For Women Confidence through aerial fitness Physical exercise can be as beneficial for the mind as it for the body, es- pecially when it challenges you move in bold ways. Take aerial fitness, for instance, where people use silks and rings as they hover in in-air poses. Sure, the idea of an aerial workout can be intimidating, but stretching out and completing an in-air or chair-supported upside-down move can be empowering. Discovering that something that seemed impossible -aerial fitness-isn't, can go a long way in spurring a confidence that often crosses into other areas of life. Another boon is that aerial fitness' hour-long routines can be adapted for people of different abilities and ages. There's also the supportive commu- nity that develops from working out with others, which can be particularly empowering for women, especially those that tend to put other's needs first, like parents. It doesn't matter if you attend class once a week or three times a week. Aerial fitness can build confidence in practioners from the start, with over- all benefits typically apparent in about three weeks.
