Expand your hoop vocabulary and learn to flow between poses and skills on the lyra! We'll learn different mounts and explore transitions from below to middle to high bars and back again so you can link your tricks together seamlessly and creatively.

Participants must be able to mount the hoop without assistance repeatedly throughout class, and be comfortable sitting, standing and hanging from different areas of the lyra, including sitting poses on the top of the hoop. Participants must be able to execute a 20 second straight hang from the bar with good form.

Learn how to work with your spin and to make it work for you! We'll focus on different styles of fast spins under the bar and a variety of ways to mount the hoop while spinning.

Participants must be able to mount the hoop without assistance throughout class, hang straight from the bar for 20 seconds with good form, and execute 5 leg lifts bringing the legs to at least a 90 degree angle with knees straight. This workshop is recommended for folks who have at least six months of experience with aerial hoop.
