Lyra Basics

Lyra, also known as aerial hoop or cerceau, is a steel hoop suspended from the ceiling at varying heights. This apparatus allows for beautiful movement as well as a challenging and fun workout. Beginners will learn basic mounts, poses, and sequences, all of which allow and prepare for growth into more dynamic movements and flows. Classes will consist of a warm up, conditioning, review and learning new poses/transitions, and a cool down.

Bringing a pair of socks and long sleeve shirt for extra comfort is optional. Beginners welcome.


For more information on studio policies and how to choose an appropriate class, please refer to the "Aerials" tab under the "Classes" heading.
