How it works

About this class

On the Lyra, basic mounts, dismounts, poses, transitions, as well as basic maneuvers within the hoop will be taught. Aerial Sling can be static, spinning or swinging like a hammock and is a great starting point for anyone who wants to engage in the aerial arts, as it exercises the whole body, including the core. Students will explore finding balance in front supports and back supports. Various poses will be taught with the sling open and closed, as well as basic drops. No previous experience necessary, but Aerial Conditioning and Stretching/Flexibility classes are highly recommended. Attire: Students must wear tight fitted clothing that covers their legs and torso (no bare midriff). Suggestions are: leggings, tights, tank top, tight fitted t-shirt. No zippers, buttons, sequins, or anything that will catch and rip fabric or the tape on aerial apparatus. If training Trapeze or Lyra (Hoop) socks or leg warmers are suggested for ankle protection. If training Tissu or Sling bare feet are suggested.

Sling/Lyra - Beginning with Jem
This was a fun, tough workout. My second aerial class and it was hard to do a lot of the moves since Im just not strong enough yet. Jem was a great teacher though! Expect to work hard!
