For beginners this is an intense work out. We work at your own pace and your ability. You should be comfortable going upside down. Wear gym attire with long sleeves and long pants that are tightly fitted around the waist, ankles and wrists to protect your skin.

Where you'll be

During the Summer we are offering silks on an outdoor rig in North Vancouver, BC - weather permitting. Address will be provided.
The classes usually take place at the West Vancouver Recreation Centre at 2121 Marine Drive in West Vancouver, BC. This is a gorgeous gym that has air conditioning in summer and is heated in the winter. Our silks are 30 feet high (10 metres).
We do need to book the gym so times depend on when it is available.

This class was a blast!! Cori is so nice and sweet. She is very experienced and tailors an experience to your level. We had no prior experience and made it off the ground. Overall a fun experience!!

Highly recommend! My wife and I have never done silks before, but had always wanted to try. We got both a good workout and had a lot of fun with this. My wife even did a flip without any previous experience! This was a great beginner class and we are looking to go back and continue our learning. Cori seemed to have the experience to teach advanced lessons. General Notes: - Good COVID policies - Felt safe in the lesson - They have a cute dog. (Cori said she could keep inside if we didn't like dogs) - Very accommodating to our skill level. Didn't push us to do something uncomfortable.

I have been taking silks classes with Cori on and off for over 10 years. I'm so glad shes found a way to continue offering them during the Covid crisis, and having the classes outside in the trees is beautiful!! Its super fun, and great exercise! Cori is a very experienced instructor. She prioritizes safety, and effectively tailors each class to the level you're at. I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a fun way to get a workout!

I highly recommend taking aerial silks with Cori. She is very experienced and friendly, and I always felt 100% safe. She was able to tailor the experience for me as a complete beginner, and I was surprised by how much I was able to do on the silks by the end of the class. I also left with some great photos. She explains everything really well and she will make sure that you're always comfortable! You can tell she's a very experienced teacher. It was so much fun and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
