Aerial hoop / Lyra

We will learn the basics on double point and single point Lyra. Mounts and dismounts, poses and transitions while working on strength and flexibility throughout. 

Aerial Hoop / Lyra originated in the 1800's when someone suspended the  mast of a ship in the air. That apparatus was said to resemble the instrument of ancient Greece and thereby got the name, Lyra.
