What are aerial hoops?

You have probably seen Aerial Hoops at a circus or they even have them in night clubs now! Aerial artists are popping up everywhere now and just remember, they are normal ordinary people just like you who once were beginners too!

Hoops (Lyra) are the easiest of all our apparatuses to learn if you’re starting from scratch. Aerial Hoops are a steel ring hanging from the ceiling where you can build your upper body and core strength by learning dizzying spins underneath, super cool tricks inside, daring transitions around the sides and even big scary drops from above the Hoop.


Benefits of Aerial Hoop & Lyra

Aerial Hoop is amazing for building strength, especially in your upper body and core and helps you to gain flexibility with the impressive tricks in the higher levels that require a stretchy back and splits. Plus it’s waaaaaay more fun than just doing regular old chin ups at the gym.

Our Classes

Our Aerial Hoop classes go for one hour per week. In every class you do a warm up to get the body going, learn progressively harder tricks and skills on the Hoop, put those together into combinations to create routines and then finish off with some strengthening to build your upper body and core muscles and a stretch out at the end. It’s a jam packed hour but we promise you will look forward to it every week!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is aerial hoops/lyra dangerous?
Whilst the idea of hanging on a suspended hoop may seem daunting, it is completely safe. The Hoops are all made of solid steel and can take up to 3 tonnes worth of weight so unless your the same weight as a small SUV, you'll be totally fine! Our Hoops are on a pulley system so we can set the Hoops as low or high as you feel comfortable and all of our Hoops have a nice soft crash mats under them. Our class sizes are also quite small so that you get lots of hands on help from our instructors in every class.
We recommend wearing full length leggings and leg warmers that can be bunched at the knees to protect the backs of your knees from rubbing on the hoop. If you don't have any leg warmers, we do have share pairs at the studio to borrow. We also recommend leaving all your jewellery (especially hand and wrist jewellery) at home as the Hoops are made of steel and can damage rings, watches, bracelets, etc.
Usually there's no need to book in for an assessment with us to determine which of our levels would be suited to your skill set from another studio. We think it's way better if you come try out a casual class with us so you can meet the other students, get a feel for our instructors style and experience the atmosphere at the studio. Because after all, if you don't like any of that stuff, it doesn't really matter which level of ours is best for you! Feel free to contact us to have a chat about your previous training experience so we can make some suggestions of which casual class to try with us.
We do require a $50 deposit to hold a spot in all of our courses and the remaining amount needs to be paid in full before the end of week 1 of your course. You can go on a payment plan but please be aware that payment plans incur a weekly $5 fee for every week past the due date that you are still paying it off.
