Aerial Fitness for KIDS: All About Learning2Fly
Our team here at iFamilyKC is so excited to bring you exciting opportunities, share fun events with you, and introduce you to incredible resources all across the metro area every single month. One of my favorite things that we do is spend time with you out in the community. Did you know that we host exclusive iFamilyKC Kids Club events several times throughout the year (we average at least once a month!) at more than 50% off regular pricing for these activities?!
If you’re not already signed up for our inner circle, be sure to do that (it’s how we send you invitations to come hang out with us) so you don’t miss out on any of the fun happenings around town. We shared a fun morning with you at Learning 2 Fly in Mission earlier this month that I’m recapping today on the blog. Take a look…
Aerial Fitness for KIDS: iFamilyKC Kids Club Recap from Learning2Fly
Learning2Fly is located off of i-35 in Mission and the building is as unique as the classes they offer for kids and adults. The studio has a really calming energy to it is so warm and inviting you can’t help but feel at home as soon as you step in. The instructors at Learning2Fly focus on seven habits of good health in everything that they do. The main floor of their building focuses on physical health with silk rope suspended from the ceiling where participants can practice aerial yoga and other classes at the studio. The upstairs area has other silk ropes and a large space for learning and craft time, which the kids got to experience during the event.
Having good physical health is such an important thing in life, and teaching our kids ways to keep our bodies healthy is an important life skill that will set them up for success later in life. The aerial fitness classes for kids that are offered at Learning2Fly aim to help kids maintain healthy, strong bodies by engaging them in fun workouts that the kids really enjoy. My own six year old made a comment as she was climbing the silk ropes at the studio, “this is hard,” she said. The instructors response was amazing and was a valuable life lesson in and of itself. She said, “It IS hard but YOU can do it!”.
7 Habits: A Chakra Circus of Health
Learning2Fly focuses on 7 habits of healthy bodies – from the inside out. The kids truly learn that they are creative beings, and what that means for their lives and our community, during art sessions at the studio. During the event, the kids spent time creating motivational artwork that they took home with them as a reminder that they are strong.
Everyone Wants to Learn2Fly
…doesn’t everyone wish their super power was flying?
Kids experienced Aerial Yoga while building core body strength and self worth. An encouraging word by Sumya Anani, owner and operator taught children the power of positivity while steering them away from ‘I can’t’ statements.
At this month’s kid’s club event, children ages 6 and up were invited to explore the environment and get a taste the different things they have to offer. Kids were able to try out hammocks, silks and do a craft with an affirmation of their choosing. Small groups allowed each child to be an active participant during the entire event. It appeared as though the kids felt equally challenged as they were happy to be there. I even overheard a child or two asking to return soon!
I joined this month’s event with my own children. It was our second visit there and it did not disappoint. My son took it all in and really got into the meditation groove on and off the silks. My daughter, the crafter, explored the artsy part of the program and left with the affirmation, “I am nice.” They both enjoyed their time at Learning2Fly and are looking forward to our next drop in class.
Looking for a unique environment…?
This is it.
The location stands out in Mission, KS with dome shaped building that provides a special fitness environment for all ages. From the outside it seems like you are entering the unknown, but once you enter through the chalkboard door, it feels calm.
The interior is colorful and inviting. I believe this reflects Sumya’s own love of colorful tie dye, which if you read the website closely, happens to be her favorite-if you are looking to score some brownie points! The split level building allows for an area specific to those wanting to work with silks and a smaller area for those wanting to work in hammocks.
Everyone is Welcome:
…from toddlers to retirees!
The facility itself caters to all ages with classes, special programs, parties and camps throughout the year.
