Aerial Lyra at VGF
Come join us Sundays starting April 28 at 5:30pm for Aerial Hoops. Aerial Lyra (also known as Hoop or Cerceau) is a large steel hoop, suspended from the ceiling on which you can perform aerial acrobatics! During your VGF Hoop class, we will cover a variety of techniques to approach the hoop. This will include getting onto the apparatus, creating shapes and poses and moving within it. The class will begin with a thorough warm up and be completed with a cool down. During the sessions we will also cover various conditioning exercises, some ground based and others incorporating the aerial equipment, which will allow students to further their strength and stamina. We advise students to wear suitable clothing for the aerial hoop classes. It is important to have skin covered and suggest wearing several layers. It is also safer to wear more fitted clothing so that it does not get caught whilst on the hoop. Leggings, tights, t- shirts and leotards are all suitable.
