Locals literally hang out at these amazing studios that teach aerial yoga in Toronto!

We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

Curious about aerial yoga? Well, let me tell you about my first experience. 

My fitness-loving friend convinced me to give it a shot, and honestly, I had no idea what to expect. But she assured me it’s like regular yoga, just with a twist—or rather, a suspension! 

Turns out, aerial yoga involves doing yoga poses while hanging from fabric hammocks. It’s not only fun but also great for improving flexibility, building core strength, and relieving stress. 

Surprisingly, I found it easier to get the hang of it than I thought. The instructors were super friendly and helpful, which made the whole experience even better.

So, after that awesome session, my friend and I decided to explore the coolest aerial yoga spots in Toronto. If you’re up for a unique and exhilarating way to unwind and get fit, check out our list—aerial yoga might just be your new favorite thing!

Wed - Thurs: 7:45 AM – 9 p.m.

Saturday: 9:45 AM – 3 p.m.

Sunday: 9:45 AM – 7 p.m.

Since 2006, Brass Vixens has been the real deal with hundreds of classes—including aerial yoga—buzzing every month!

First off, we loved their sleek studio with cherry hardwood floors, wall-to-wall mirrors, and ceilings that soar 10 feet high.

Their Aerial 1 class will ease newbies into the hammock world, covering everything from floor basics to upside-down inversions.

And for those ready to level up, their Aerial 2 will teach you advanced moves that’ll have you feeling like a true aerial acrobat.

Another class offering is their Aerial Yin. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a long day, improving flexibility while floating in the air.

Pole dancing, floor play, heels classes, and even burlesque classes are available—it’s like a one-stop shop for sassiness! 

Now, when you’re not flying high on those hammocks, you can chill out on their rooftop patio or cozy lounge.

Sadly, we did hear a few whispers about them having a clique-y vibe.

I LOVE Brass Vixens

“I LOVE Brass Vixens. I’ve been taking class there for a year and a half, and I’ve had so much fun! I’ve also gotten so much stronger! There is a HUGE variety of classes offered. This is great, because everyone will have different classes that they like. The intro offer is sweet because it gives you a month to try all the different classes. The teachers are really kind and committed to seeing you grow and improve. There is a really positive environment in the classes- people are friendly and open-minded. The studios are lovely. There’s lots of space to dance and stretch, and lots of room to get changed. The bathrooms are always clean and there’s often deodorant, hair ties and tampons there for students. I’ve had the best experience at this studio and I’m so happy it’s become a big part of my life. Thank you Brass Vixens!”

Saturday: 11:30 AM – 6:30 PM

Sunday: 11 AM – 10 PM

For dance lovers who are curious about aerial yoga, Star Dance Centre might be the spot for you. 

Upon entering, we were wowed by their professional dance studio with a soft sprung floor, high ceiling windows, 8’ mirrors, and audiophile-grade speakers. Then, we were greeted warmly by the receptionist, who told us about their classes.

First, newcomers can try their Beginner Aerial Yoga classes, where they’ll learn the ropes (quite literally) and master fundamental poses with ease. 

If you’ve been taking aerial yoga for a while, we suggest signing up for their Intermediate Aerial Flow sessions.

Of course, since they’re a dance studio, they also offer Aerial Dance Flow, which blends expressive movement with aerial artistry in one dynamic class. 

Plus, if you’re all about flexibility and conditioning, their Aerial Stretching and Conditioning classes are a must-try!

However, when booking via their app, do ask for confirmation as we did hear about some booking mishaps.

Great teachers with a unique and caring approach

“I’ve tried several dance schools around Toronto and especially love this one. My recommendation to ladies will be to check out heels class with Carolina and aerial yoga with Tracy. They both are great teachers with unique and caring approach.”

Natalya Tegza, Google Review

Whole class made me feel welcome

“Bright, clean, accessible space, friendly instructors, and great atmosphere. I came to Star Dance Centre for an aerial hammock class – my first in nearly a decade – and the whole class made me feel welcomed. Hanging upside down in a hammock is a special experience, made even better by the fact that my abs are still feeling the workout from nearly 3 days ago. Thanks, Bonita and team!”

Get ready to be amazed because Aura doesn’t just offer your average aerial yoga classes. They’ve got over nine unique classes to choose from.

Ever tried Floating Sound and Meditation? Imagine being cocooned in a hammock, surrounded by the soothing sounds of crystal singing bowls and gentle vibrations—such a total zen moment.

If you’re feeling adventurous, we suggest giving Spinning Hammock a whirl. 

We also tried their Open Practice sessions, and we were able to unleash our creativity and explore new tricks at our own pace. 

With classes like Cantonese Floating Sound and Meditation and Aerial Stretch and Tone, there’s always something new to try!

Note that Aura might be on the smaller side compared to other studios.

Wonderful Aerial Yoga Experience!!

“Wonderful Aerial Yoga Experience!! The class was fun & diverse – we did a couple of different positions & deep stretches at the beginning. It was more challenging then other studios I’ve been to – but in all the right ways! I actually felt like I improved, got out of my comfort zone & felt so good & successful afterwards! The teacher was attentive but not overbearing! I’ll be back for sure 🤸”

Tracy is an exceptional hammock coach for all levels! 

“Tracy is an exceptional hammock coach for all levels! Her expertise and guidance have truly elevated my experience to new heights. With her skillful instruction, every class becomes a journey of harmony and immersion, complemented by the soothing melodies she incorporates. Tracy’s dedication to her craft shines through, bringing out the best in each participant. I highly recommend her sessions to anyone looking to deepen their practice and explore the art of hammocks. Thank you, Tracy, for taking us to the next level ♡”

4. Hot Yoga Wellness

ADDRESS3241 Kennedy Road, Unit 7 Scarborough, ON

(416) 901-5788


Hot Yoga Wellness is all about one thing: making wellness accessible to everyone. From their cozy studios to their friendly staff, you can feel the good vibes from the moment you walk in.

They’ve got your classic hot yoga sessions—think Vinyasa, Hatha, and Power yoga—all set in their cozy infrared heated rooms. 

But, we came here for their aerial yoga. We loved being suspended in mid-air, gracefully flowing through poses like a Cirque du Soleil performer!

We also noticed their budget-friendly prices. With drop-in rates as low as $25 and sweet discounts for students and promo deals, you can stretch and sweat without emptying your wallet.

Fun fact: They’re registered with the Yoga Alliance and offer yoga certifications for those who want to be yoga teachers!

Need a little extra TLC? They’ve got you covered with acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and massages.

Unfortunately, we’ve heard about a few hiccups with scheduling, so better confirm that classes will be held before going there.

  • Budget-friendly prices

Both Yoga and Aerial classes are an absolute treat!

“HOT YOGA WELLNESS THE PERFECT STUDIO TO UNWIND, DESTRESS AND RELAX. I have been practicing Yoga for decades and taken classes at most of the studios in my area, but none compared to HYW STUDIO classes. The Instructors at HYW Studio are very knowledgeable, patient and passionate about their sessions. They are intuitive teachers who adapts every pose to work for everyone in the room. May, Susan, Guy, Steve Linna, Tilda, Jacinda, Parinaz, Lilliana ,Suzannah, Mary, Alyssa are all amazing teachers . Restorative sessions are the ultimate way to unwind and heal. One will leave feeling refreshed and renewed. You feel great after each stretch session and the Teachers cater to all levels of Yoga.

Best yoga class in the GTA

“Best yoga class in the GTA. Josh was a great help in recommending the aerial yoga! Highly recommend.”

Jsanny, Google Review

Tried my first aerial yoga class; it was incredible

“I tried my first aerial yoga class at Mukti Studio last Saturday. It was incredible. The instructor was very friendly and clear. I usually feel intimidated as I am still a beginner at yoga but this class felt warm and comforting. I have knee pain and they guided me for what felt good for my body. It still felt like a workout and my muscles were activated. I felt really energized after it! Also, Josh at the front desk was so sweet and welcoming. I would go again 100%!”

6. The Circus Fix

ADDRESS6 Carlaw Avenue Toronto, ON M4M 2R5

(416) 807-9707


If you’re looking to add a bit of circus flair to your fitness routine, then check out The Circus Fix. Owned by Jamie Holmes, whose career has seen her grace stages around the globe, this spot offers a whole range of aerial classes in Toronto.

From aerial silks to trapeze, hoop to hammock, you can try it all. And, they’ve got open gym aerial sessions for those looking to take their skills to the next level.

We think it’s really cool that twice a year, students get to show off their newfound talents in a student recital—talk about a confidence boost!

And it’s not just for adults. They’ve got awesome after-school programs for kids and teens too. 

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, We recommend joining one of their retreats in Costa Rica or Greece!

There might be a few hiccups with booking online, but once you’re in the studio, it’s all fun and games!

Been on other aerial silks retreats; this was by far the best

“I’m way overdue to write this, but I went on a Flytime Retreats/ Circus Fix Retreat to Costa Rica, led by Jamie Holmes. I have been on other aerial silks retreats and this was by far the best for a number of reasons: 1. Facility/ Retreat Center (Funky Monkey): they have delicious, healthy food; the silks studio is gorgeous, the accommodations are clean, the staff are service oriented. 2. Trip Leader (Jamie Holmes): Jaime is professional, detail oriented, and planned the trip logistics well. She also communicated clearly on a regular basis so everyone was on the same page and knew about events, activities, and details. When a minor problem arose with a massage booking at the retreat center, Jaime addressed it immediately and had it resolved the same day. 3. Aerial Classes (Jamie Holmes): Jaime had numerous sequences for everyone to learn that were unique and creative. She also incorporated cool creative exercises to expand our skill set as aerialists. She encouraged aerialists to work together and communicate and fostered a fun, engaging, and energetic class experience. I learned so much every day and frequently multiple times a day! 4. Extras: Jamie also planned fun “outside of class” activities like a photoshoot on the beach, massages at a local spa, and more.

ADDRESS401 Alden Rd #8, Markham, ON L3R 4N4

(289) 859-9538


Established in 2017, Akasa Yoga is all about providing a sanctuary from the chaos of daily life.

Speaking of being a sanctuary, we think their aerial yoga classes are a must-try. 

For instance, their introductory aerial yoga class is perfect for beginners, blending traditional yoga with the support of silk hammocks. It’s a great way to strengthen your core and improve flexibility.

Once you’ve got the hang of it (pun intended!), you can level up to their all-level aerial yoga class. Here, you’ll get to explore more advanced poses.

If you’re looking for a bit more of a challenge, check out their Aerial Power yoga classes. These sessions use the hanging fabric to amp up your workout, targeting your core muscles, improving flexibility, and boosting strength.

With trial class passes and special deals, there’s no reason not to give it a try! 

Just watch out for any impatient teachers—but hey, we’re all human, right?

Incredibly positive and welcoming aerial dance studio

“This is an incredibly positive and welcoming aerial dance studio. I tried Aerial Hoop with Eman and now doing silks on the regular with Haley. They are both amazing teachers who really want their students to learn. I have never been able to make so much progress in such little time on the silks and it’s all because of all the personal attention and encouragement they give. I am so blessed I found this boutique studio.”

Dancing in Circles is amazing!

“Dancing in Circles is amazing! I have taken multiple classes with Eman and she is an amazing instructor. She is so well trained and can teach at multiple levels! She’s encouraging and fun to work with. Each class flys by since it’s so fun and she’s always making sure we still are able to learn and improve both of skills and health. This is a place to become an amazing circus performer like her if you wanted to, or just try a fun new workout! 5 stars across the board!!”

9. Cirque-ability

ADDRESS807 st clarens Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M6H 3X4, Canada

OPERATING HOURSMon - Sun: Open 24 hours

Cirque-ability is Toronto’s premier circus-inspired studio. Founded in 2008, this cozy loft space in the city’s west end is where dreams of aerial acrobatics come to life.

First off, we love their small aerial yoga class sizes (6-8 students per coach), meaning you’ll receive personalized instruction. Another bonus is that each aerial equipment can only be shared by two, so you’ll spend more time soaring through the air!

Speaking of coaches, Cirque-ability boasts a team of professional performers and former competitive athletes who know their stuff. 

And don’t worry about feeling overwhelmed – Cirque-ability’s level system ensures that you’ll tackle skills at your own pace. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, there’s a plan in place to help you succeed.

The only downside? Securing a spot in these popular aerial yoga classes might be a bit challenging, so be sure to book in advance!


  • Over 16 years of experience
  • No more than 6-8 students per coach
  • Skilled and experienced instructors
  • Has a level system in place

AT OM YOGA + PILATES is an aerial yoga studio founded by the passionate and dedicated Banu Behfar. Her journey into yoga, pilates, and meditation began in 2002, fueled by her athletic lifestyle. 

For those looking to dip their toes into the aerial yoga world, her studio offers a fantastic 7-day aerial and mat intro package.

Prefer to practice from the comfort of your own home? AT OM has you covered with their two-week live-streaming package for just $39.

If you’re ready to take your passion for aerial yoga to the next level, they offer teacher training and retreats in exotic locations like Costa Rica. 

We did notice that their drop-in classes are a tad pricey.
