Lyra Essentials – Beginner (Required)
This class will introduce you to the Lyra, also known as Aerial Hoop. You will learn the fundamentals of how to safely invert to get on and off the hoop and will explore a variety of basic poses. Each class will work on building strength, flexibility, and developing a stronger body awareness. No prior aerial experience needed, and all levels are welcome! Lyra Essentials is a prerequisite for attending any Lyra classes, unless prior approval by instructor.
Lyra All Levels
This class will work on building strength and flexibility, and developing a stronger body awareness through a series of Lyra poses that are tailored to meet you at your level. As you move through the class, your instructor will offer both modifications and advancements, so you may honor your body and challenge yourself, as needed. This class is open to Lyra practitioners of all levels, so long as they have taken at least one Lyra Essentials class and are able to safely and independently invert and dismount the hoop.
Once you have become comfortable with mounting and familiarize yourself with being on the hoop, we will start exploring more advanced poses. In this intermediate class we will learn a broad variety of different moves, transitions, and combinations. Please note that you must be able to safely and independently invert and dismount to take this class.
In this class, we will take moves that you are already familiar with and combine them into a routine. We will learn how to weave, twist, and turn ourselves seemingly effortlessly with the hoop. We will explore different ways to play with expression and musicality, while challenging ourselves by moving in new ways on the hoop. A minimum of 4 Lyra Deconstructed classes are recommended prior to attending this class.
