If you want to build strength along with Zen-like focus, circus arts are for you. Fly high on the trapeze, silks, and rings at Asheville Aerial Space, which offers classes in aerial basics, trapeze, silks, lycra, and more. Beginners are welcome in most classes.

Aerial yoga practices, which combine traditional yoga poses and acrobatics, are offered at River Arts Ballet in Fletcher and The Shift studio in Hendersonville. “Aerial yoga breeds great strength and confidence,” says Shift owner Emily Van Eman. “It’s a safe way to find your edge.”
