People don’t tend to find Aerial Hoop as challenging as pole as there are a variety of ways of getting into the hoop suitable for complete beginners. Plus once you’re in it there’s lots you can do! It is however an amazing workout for arms, stomach muscles, legs and a firmer bottom! You will be able to achieve moves from your first lesson, but there’s still a lot of progression. Lovely looking moves to show off to your friends and family, and small classes means everyone is very supportive.
Unfortunately due to building restrictions there is a 15 stone weight limit in place.
The bottom of the hoops are approximately 3-4 feet from the floor and we do have mats underneath. There a 3 hoops in the studio at slightly varying heights to cater for all levels.
Leggings are ideal, with socks and a t-shirt or long sleeves. If you bruise easily or have sensitive skin, leg warmers or long socks are also recommended for extra padding and support over the knees.
Class numbers vary, the maximum we’ve had on very busy nights is 4 per hoop although we try to keep it at around 3. The semi-private morning classes only have a maximum of 5, and we do offer private lessons if you require more individual tuition. Beginners can start group classes at any time, but we also offer beginners courses every few months.
COVID-19: Classes must now be booked in 30min sessions, with a maximum of 2 people
Evening classes don’t need to be booked, however if you are a complete beginner it is recommended to get in touch prior to starting a class, or we also offer beginner courses.
All of our aerial hoop classes cover a range of different moves on both the top bar of the hoop and the lower bar. In a beginner-intermediate class there are less top bar moves and teaching is a little more gradual, whereas the intermediate covers a few more combination of moves and includes some which require a bit more strength or hoop experience.
♥ Semi-Private Aerial Hoop (£6.50) is a class where numbers are limited to a maximum of 5 so you get more individual attention. These need to be booked at least a couple of days in advance.
♥ Aerial Hoop (£5) classes are group tuition and do not need to be booked. Numbers do vary so we cannot gurantee how many per hoop, however we give people the best possible workout we can! Beginners are welcome to any class.
♥ Private lessons can be booked for 1:1 instruction or can be shared with friends. A great way of really getting to grips with personal goals, iron out technique, and focusing on what you want to do.
