Last November, Flexibility in Flight started the expansion of their studio space to include a new studio on Main Street, in addition to Studio C and Orange County’s only outdoor silk deck.

They celebrated the expansion July 17 with a grand re-opening.

The Main Street studio is a beautiful, airy space with white walls and pastel color silks.

Terra Meierdierck has owned Flexibility in Flight since 2015 and is passionate about the studio, teaching others and building a community.

All of the instructors are certified and dedicated to creating a positive and uplifting learning environment for their students.

The core focus of Flexibility in Flight is small group instruction. Terra holds a Master’s Degree in Education and believes students learn best with more individualized attention and scaffolding our curriculum.

The staff works with each individual’s needs and tries to accommodate all learning styles.

Terra also believes one-on-one attention is critical for children classes for safety, as well as learning retention.

For this reason, they keep the sizes of the kids’ classes especially small.

It is also important to Terra that each student has their own piece of equipment – silk or Lyra – and does not have to share, for efficient use of class time for the student.

Flexibility in Flight has a heavy circus influence in its aerial style, with yoga values and practice. They offer classes for Aerial Fabric (Split Silks), Aerial Hammock Silks, Aerial Yoga, Lyra Aerial Hoop, Burlesque Dance, Bellydance, Liquid Motion, Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Barre, Acro Dance, Tumbling and AcroYoga.

The mission of Flexibility in Flight is to create a supportive learning environment for students, with a focus on cleanliness.

The silks are washed regularly; all mats are wiped down after each use; panel mats are provided for each student and a crash mat is available.

All the rigging for the studios was provided by an expert rigger, to ensure safety.

A few spaces are still available for their summer camp.
