It's beauty and grace... Aerial Hoop or Lyra is a circular steel apparatus. It is used as beautiful art form and fantastic strength training tool. You will learn various ways to mount and dismount the hoop. The variety of hangs, grips, spins, mounts, and transitions are absolutely endless! Students will progress on to harder and more advanced moves as your strength and confidence increase. You will be amazed at what you are actually capable of doing and will be addicted after your first class!
Our Lyra classes are 45 minutes in length with a maximum of 3 people in each class. Lyra classes are appropriate for all shapes and sizes. No previous experience is required. Men, Women and children are all welcome in this class! Our small class size ensures that you will get intensive, individualized instruction and our instructor will help you establish your own goals for each class. We encourage all students to arrive at least 15 mins prior to class to prepare and stretch out so that you may get the most out of your hour on the apparatus.
If you have never taken a Lyra class before here are some tips to assure your success and enjoyment.
- Wear comfortable clothing that you can move in and that covers the back of your knees. It is important that you wear a shirt that can be tucked in or is tight enough that it will not ride up while hanging upside down. (yoga pants or tights are recommended - NO shorts)
- Tie long hair back in a braid or bun, loose pony tails may get in the way.
- NO jewelry or sharp objects (please no zippers!)
- Bring water! It's important to stay hydrated 🙂
So what are you waiting for?! Spaces are limited!
I never thought that I was somone who looked graceful or beautiful doing anything. I was always the awkward one, tripping over my own feet and afraid to dance in public. My friend came with me to my first class and took pictures the whole time - even though I was begging her to stop. When class was over and I finally got up the courage to look at the pictures, I was amazed! The things Jenn had me doing in my first class were beautiful...I was beautiful!
