Intro to Aerial Hoop Workshop @ Open Source Arts

Join Lorna from Leeds Aerial Arts learn the Aerial Hoop! Aerial Hoop is a fantastic full body workout designed to build strength, muscle tone and increase flexibility. It is a great way to get fit, work with others and push yourself to new limits.
Aerial Hoop is a large metal ring suspended from the ceiling. It challenges the upper body, core strength, coordination and courage. Within this ‘Intro to Aerial Hoop’ you will learn to climb and create shapes on the hoop whilst in the air. You will learn to drop, roll and perform tricks on the hoop, testing your coordination and nerve! Master the basics with Leeds Aerial Arts within a relaxed and friendly environment.

This workshop will be led by Lorna Mackinder-Clark from Leeds Aerial Arts and is suitable for those completely new to the Aerial Hoop. Those taking part can expect a full body workout, with a focus on challenging the core and upper body strength. Be prepared to work a little outside your comfort zone, not taking yourself too seriously!

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