Welcome to our studio
We provide aerial instruction to adults and kids in a safe and supportive environment. In addition to offering private and semi-private lessons, group classes, open gyms, and workshops, we also offer private aerial classes for small groups. Bring your keiki (kids) to circus nights! Plus you can rent our private fitness studio for your own event, workshop, or live show!

Private and Group Lessons for Adults & Kids
Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced aerialist, our lessons are tailored to your needs so that you can reach your goals. In a private lesson we will have an intake to discuss your goals before moving onto the lesson. After a warm-up on the floor, warm up on the equipment, we will teach skills with a focus on YOUR STRENGTHS and help you learn what movements or adjustments work best FOR YOU or your group. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to teaching. Everyone has their own skill sets, their own injuries, their own body types, their own goals, and their own fears. We will work together to create an aerial curriculum that fits your needs, keeps you safe, and gives you the experience that you are looking for. Lessons can be arranged in Haiku or Makawao/Pukalani or your home if you have a safe aerial rigging point (no trees).
Aerial Open Gym
Practice new skills from your aerial classes!
Open Gym is a great opportunity to practice skills you have learned in class and to work on technique and strength training. While there is no teaching during an open gym, an instructor will be there keeping an eye on things and on hand for spotting and to answer any questions.
Open Gym during COVID
Due to Covid related suggestions by the ACYO, our open gyms will operate differently than before. Open Gyms are now on a reservation system and 8 people at a time can train, if they want to train with their own point. If you have a “training buddy” to share equipment with, we can have up to 16 students. If you have a training buddy you can share equipment with, register yourself and your training buddy can pay upon arrival. The only way to secure your training point is to register in advance.
BYOE! Bring Your Own Equipment
Also, feel free to BYOE (bring your own equipment!) If you bring your own equipment, it is very helpful to us and will eventually let us offer more classes, as we will not have to wash and quarantine our own equipment as much.
Schedule Your Own Private Gym
If you own your own training equipment and want to train with friends, you can schedule your own “private open gym.” Contact us to learn more and to schedule. Pricing depends on number of people and equipment.
Rent the Studio for Workshops, Events, etc…
Private Maui Gym for Rent in Haiku
Maui Aerial Arts has two large private fitness rooms, both rigged for aerial apparatus, with lighting, stage curtains, and a back-stage area for performers. Our Maui fitness studio is a wonderful place to host your burlesque show, a private workshop, ongoing fitness classes, etc. We love sharing our studio with other professionals!
Aerial House Calls
Aerials at home
As aerial grows in popularity, more people are installing aerial equipment in their own homes and learning from the internet, books, and exploration. While this option is liberating and exciting (you can train whenever you want!) it can also be dangerous. Proper rigging is needed for aerial and online instruction can never replace the knowledge, skilled-eye and spotting safety provided by a professional instructor. As Maui is a DIY kind of island, we make house calls! If our instructors approve your rigging point, we will come to you and teach you out of your home. We teach safe progressions with an emphasis on technique and strength building — giving you maximum progress and keeping you safe. We even bring crash pads if you don’t have them!
