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.

  • gam_img2

    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.

about_sec2_img1

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.

about_sec2_img2

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.

about_sec3_img2

We want you to assist them on this journey.

Happy Fliers’ aerial hammocks help children engage in active play, but more than this, the exercises they learn will amplify their sensory awareness, which we know is essential for happy, healthy growing minds and bodies.

The Happy Fliers’ teaching course will show you how to use the hammocks with moves designed to provide sensory input – proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile – all while having fun.

The Happy Fliers’ program not only provides sensory input; it also strengthens the whole body of a child, especially the core and the upper extremity, which we as therapists know is crucial for development of good posture and writing skills.

The teacher’s manual includes notes on how to use the hammock for Sensory Integration Therapy.
