“I’ve absolutely loved taking classes at Stomping Ground! The studio is a great space and more importantly the instructors are amazing – they are positive, encouraging, helpful, and patient. No matter what level you are, they make each class a meaningful experience. THANK YOU!! Also, love the positive energy from the other students :D” -Zidi from Google Review, November 2021

“I came to my first class at Stomping Ground with Kristen only a couple months ago, and now I’m here multiple times a week. Whether you are brand new to aerial or an experienced aerialist, Kristen and Lynn are phenomenal instructors who are always able to meet you wherever you are at in your journey. The amount of progress I’ve made in the last few weeks alone with Kristen’s help has been mind-blowing. I highly recommend to anyone interested in aerial and looking for somewhere to get a solid foundation and room to explore. Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality”  -Cal from Google Review, November 2021


“I took one aerial silks class with Kristen a few years ago and was immediately hooked!! Kristen is an amazing teacher who creates a fun environment that is both challenging and rewarding. Kristen’s knowledge of physiology has helped me stay injury free and safe. If you take an aerial class you can expect to learn some warm up and strength building practices that you can do on your own. I’ve been amazed by my aerial journey- I have learned so many cool tricks, can make so many pretty shapes, and feel stronger! Stomping Ground Studio’s new space in NE is a sun filled training space. It is such a joy to train at Stomping Ground!!” -Marie from Google Review October 2021

“I recently decided to do something way out of my comfort zone and try an Arial arts class. I take group fitness classes quite often, but this was a whole new experience!  I signed up for the Friday evening Tissue 1 Class with Kristin, the owner of Stomping Ground.  She was a wonderful instructor, tailoring moves to the various levels of those of us in class. I was pleasantly surprised that I (and everyone else in class) was able to do the moves, at least to some degree. This class was not only a great workout, but a wonderful stress reliever at the end of the week. Also you definitely get some laughs at yourself in as you try things.  I would definitely recommend checking it out!” -unknown from Yelp 4/29/2018
