Intro To Lyra

In this class you will learn Lyra basics such as mounting the hoop, posing, spinning and moving within it. All fitness levels and all shapes and sizes are welcome - no experience is necessary! Lyra classes are great for building core strength and increasing your flexibility.

Lyra Level 2

This class is for intermediate and advanced students only. An interested student MUST go to at least 1 intro class and speak to the instructor before joining the mixed level class. This intensive lyra class weaves together basic/transitional moves, inversions, flips, standing poses, and advanced tricks. After a thorough warm-up and stretching, aerialists will progress through a planned sequence of moves with ever-increasing difficulty in order to build muscles and endurance. Emphasis will include performing each pose left-handed and right-handed to achieve a balanced work-out and symmetry.

Vertical Playground

For those who already know the fundamentals of aerial silks, sling and/or lyra. This class focuses on cooperative performances, fusion/cross disciplinary performances, unusual/experimental apparatus, choreography, creating videos, and artistic aerial projects.

What To Wear To Lyra Classes

Be sure to thoroughly clean your hands, arms and legs before class to get rid of any lotion or lotion residue that may be on there!!! Please do not wear any bracelets, watches or rings and they will get scratched and will scratch our poles. Wear short or long sleeves if you want to prevent chaffing under the arms, but tank tops or sports bras are fine. All clothing should be close fitting, especially at the ankles - leggings work best - with bare feet or socks with grippy soles. Leg warmers are a good idea too!
