What is Aerial Silks

This exercise is done on two pieces of hanging fabric. Suspended by locking your feet into the cloth safely and securely. So how do you make fitness fun? We have the answer with our roof raising Aerial Silks classes. A lot of the time the class feels like too much fun to be a serious workout, but there are major health benefits. Aerial silks works pretty much every muscle in your body: from arms to legs, stomach to back. The classes also strengthen the core and increase flexibility after a few sessions. It is not just for girls either; plenty of burly bodybuilders attend class to work on muscles that lifting weights can not target as effectively.


What is Aerial Hoop

Aerial hoop is a beautiful art form. It is one of the oldest and most respected forms in the aerial tradition, aerial hoops help graceful performers create stunning displays of skill high above the stage. The origins of Aerial Hoop, also known as Lyra are unclear, but it has been mentioned in mainstream circus performance since the mid-2000s.


It is a suspended steel hoop, much like a hula hoop, but rigged by one or two points and may have evolved from the high wire and trapeze swinging acts, which in turn came from gymnastics and acrobatics.The metal hoops come in two main configurations. One features a single tab, which is the harness that secures the hoop to it’s connecting chain or rope. A single tab hoop spins and swings easier, but is less stable and will rotate if used for certain poses. A double tab hoop features two connections, adding balance and stability to the hoop for difficult poses.

Each class will involve a Warm Up, Conditioning, Hoop Tricks, Transitions and Combos, building to a choreographed routine for each level to conquer over the period of your course, finishing your session with a Cool Down and Stretches. The instructor will demonstrate new tricks, moving around the room to spot students. Aerial hoop does take a lot of upper body strength but complete beginners are welcome as you will learn tricks and poses step by step, building your strength up over time and developing your flexibility.


Our classes are all about fun and fitness; for all ages, sizes and abilities.We all work together to be encouraging and all inclusive. Please browse the website for information regarding class timetable before emailing us, but if there is something you cant find then don’t hesitate to ask!
