Trapeze, Please!

Sunday, June 26, 2016 – 2:00 PM
Hay Lake School Museum, Scandia

When driving north down Olinda Trail into Scandia one might happen across a large trapeze net and on any given day they will see people flying high in the sky.  This lively group is made up of roughly 50 flyers who meet twice a week to strengthen their bodies and minds. Flying trapeze is a great way to enhance your exercise routine and gain strength and coordination while connecting the whole body, core and mind.  Great for cross training, balance and team building

Representatives from Embrace Adrenaline will speak on the techniques, equipment, and love for this sport.  They will also cover how anyone has the opportunity to give it a try, from young to old, they have a “family club” concept for all.
