4 Week Series
This four-week series will take a deep dive into the wonderful world of spinning via our friend the aerial hoop. Over the course of four weeks we will go from a review of spin theory to a variety of flare techniques, with some cool centering progressions and fun spin sequencing along the way. Whether you’re a spinning newcomer wanting to understand how to move through spins or you’re a total flare fiend who is hungry for some fresh variations, this workshop series has something for you!
Pre-reqs: At least 6 months on the apparatus. Must be prepared to spin (strong stomachs and/or ginger candies advised).

This is an intermediate/advanced workshop. You must have taken an intro to tippy lyra class or have solid aerial experience.
While I personally wouldn’t recommend using the span sets for your exfoliation needs, I’ll leave it up to you to make the best choice for you, whatever you feel comfortable in.
