COVID-19 Will Not Get Us Down
Once again we find ourselves having to hunker down (a little bit) to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Fortunately, unlike the first shut down that came about in March, we can still operate on a limited basis.
The current order issued by the MDHHS doesn’t allow for group exercise classes, and by our interpretation that includes our Aerial Silks and AIReal Yoga classes, despite their small size and the many precautions we’ve taken. We considered continuing to run as per the new usual, but it felt disingenuous to encourage people to follow the various health regulations while ignoring them ourselves.
We’re taking this opportunity to adopt a new, (hopefully) temporary mode of operations with a whole menu of options for you to choose from!
We’ve dropped the price for private lessons to absolute ROCK BOTTOM pricing- only $35 for a whole hour. Lessons are taught by Diane and can be in the areas of aerial silks, AIReal yoga, or flexibility training. Unlike in the past, private lessons are limited to only one client and cannot be split between multiple people.
Private Lessons are available for scheduling Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-5pm (Saturdays are 1pm-5pm) and can be booked online by going to the Wellness Living site, clicking on the Book Now tab, and then clicking on Appointments. There is an automatic minimum 30 minute gap between appointments.
Join in from the safety and comfort of your own home with virtual class offerings. All online classes are currently being taught by Diane on the Moxie platform. (We would be running classes via Zoom and Wellness Living, but they charge us quite a bit extra, so our apologies for having to make another account on another platform. We recommend using a laptop running Chrome.)

Open Fly Version 2.0
Sundays are now Open Fly days! From 2pm to 9:30pm a maximum of TWO people at a time can reserve 90 minute slots for working on their own practice. Silks will be changed out immediately after each session so that there’s no risk of having to work on a previously used apparatus. People with lyras or other aerial toys are welcome to bring them, but please still reserve a spot online. The two rig points will be placed as far away from each other as possible. To book an Open Fly session, log onto our Wellness Living site and select your desired week and time.
Still Committed to Safety
Our commitment to making Ringstar as safe a space as possible remains unchanged. All silks will either be rested for 48 hours or washed after use. No one may enter the studio if they are currently experiencing any symptoms of illness, have experienced symptoms of illness within the last 14 days, have come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, are waiting on the results of a COVID test, or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days. We are currently not allowing guests or observers. All students should wash their hands before and after in-person classes, and all visitors to the studio will have their temperature checked. High contact surfaces like door knobs, light switches, cubbies, and bathroom fixtures are sanitized daily and our studio floor is sanitized weekly. Masks are required to be worn, covering the mouth and nose, at all times. Gaiters, bandanas, and face shields are not acceptable substitutes.
