Aerial Hoop or Lyra as its traditionally called is a circus-based apparatus. A metal hoop suspended in the air which is used to perform acrobatic style tricks in and around. Within Aerial fitness class, we work on mastering the fundamentals of the artform, covering circus-style strength and conditioning exercises to enable you to achieve the spectacular tricks preformed in the aerial hoop.
Trial class is perfect for anyone interested in starting Aerial Hoop, but not totally sure if it would be right for them. Within the 45min class we will give you a taste of what to expect if you were to sign up for the Level One course. We will go cover how to climb into the hoop, fundamental tricks and poses. This session will also include a warm-up and cool down.
What to wear: We recommend wearing long pants, bring a top with sleeve, socks are optional.
Suitable for absolute beginners, no prior aerial or other fitness experience necessary.
Aerial Hoop is a challenging full-body workout, you will be required to hold you body weight with your arms (you do not need to be able to complete full pull up prior).
It is natural to find these classes intimating as a beginner, aerial fitness pushes you out of your comfort zone. Through attending classes you will gain the strength, flexibility and body awareness needed to achieve the desirable tricks (nothing is impossible). We fully understand the starting can be challenging as we have all been there, after a couple classes you will start to see progress which is extremely rewarding and makes the process totally worthwhile.
If you have any prior injuries especially shoulders we do recommend consulting your GP or Physio beforehand. For more information please feel free to contact us directly email@example.com.
