Aerial Hoop

Aerial Hoop (also known as Lyra, Aerial Ring or Cerceau) is a circular steel ring that is suspended, usually on a swivel which allows it to spin freely.

The Hoop is held in the hands whilst you invert your body in a variety of shapes to hook your legs on, which in turn enables you to pull yourself up to sit inside the Hoop.

Moves and shaped poses are then completed in varying degrees of difficulty, both in and around the Hoop.

 

You can roll, spin and bend around the hoop, and flexibility aids in making the poses look more graceful and beautiful.
