What is Happy Fliers?

A dose of happiness through active play

  • gam_img1

    HAPPY FLIERS is a hybrid of aerial yoga, pilates and aerial arts that provides a real mind/body connection.

    Through controlled movements using a specially-designed hammock, our sensory awareness is heightened.

    This is particularly useful for developing children in today’s technology-driven world.


In a world where fresh air and activity have given way to tablets and computer screens, our kids are growing stressed, unhealthy and unequipped to deal with anxieties of day to day life.


At Happy Fliers, we get back to basics – using aerial fitness techniques with the aim of getting kids active and healthy in both mind and body. The movements stimulate their sensory awareness, allowing them to develop healthy responses and coping mechanisms away from modern technology.



We want you to assist them on this journey.
Happy Fliers’ aerial hammocks provide hours of active play for kids of all ages, but more than this, the exercises they learn will amplify their sensory awareness, which is essential for happy, healthy growing minds and bodies.

Are you a yoga teacher, Pilates teacher, fitness instructor or other movement practitioner? If so, you already know the benefits of activity and movement for a healthy body and mind. Now, let’s help our future generations discover the joy of movement through the mind and body connection that comes from aerial fitness.

Sharing these skills with kids is a fun and rewarding career choice. Why not add to your repertoire by helping our young people find a joy in active play that will benefit them as they grow into healthy, active adults?
