YOU know how to Flow, but do you know how to fly? And what better way to get ready for flying, then by calming your mind and body. Center your Qi, get a good stretch, and reach for the sky. It’s time to fly.

NOW that you’re warm, it’s time to fly. And there’s no team more qualified to guide you through your first experience like the I.FLY Trapeze crew. Not your first time? No problem. We’ll pick up where you left off or just tell us what you want to learn.
