Intro to Aerial Hoop Doubles @ Open Source Arts

Join Lorna from Leeds Aerial Arts to level up your Aerial Hoop skills with Aerial Hoop Doubles!

Aerial Hoop is a fantastic full body workout designed to build strength, muscle tone and to increase flexibility. It is a great way to get fit, work with others and push yourself to new limits.
Aerial Hoop Doubles is two people working on the same hoop together! It challenges teamwork, communication, balance and trust.

Within this ‘Intro to Aerial Hoop Doubles’ you will learn to climb and perform tricks and routines whilst in the air and with a partner!

This workshop will be led by Lorna Mackinder-Clark from Leeds Aerial Arts and is suitable for those with previous experience on the Aerial Hoop. Participants should already be comfortable mounting and dismounting the equipment and hanging from the bottom and top bar. Those taking part can expect a full body work out, with a focus on challenging the core and upper body strength. Be prepared to work a little outside your comfort zone, testing your teamwork and communication skills and not taking yourself too seriously!

Please wear comfortable fitted clothing which covers the backs of the knees (no shorts) and socks or bare feet.

You do not need to come with a partner – be prepared to work with different partners throughout the session.
