Aerial hoop is a gymnastic, circus-y type of exercise that you do using a large steel hoop suspended in mid-air. You may have seen aerial hoops in The Greatest Showman film or Cirque du Soleil shows. Aerial hoop develops muscular strength, flexibility, balance, core stability, coordination, and spatial skills. You don't have to be an acrobat to start hoop. You don't even have to be strong. By working gradually, your strength and flexibility soon grow, and you start to amaze yourself at what you can do.
My name is Debora Field. I started doing aerial hoop just before my 50th birthday. Aerial hoop has become very important in my life. Last year at the age of 54 I was delighted and very lucky to be able to move away from my old desk job and into a new life as an aerial fitness instructor in my own business. As a qualified aerial hoop instructor and personal trainer, I am thoroughly enjoying introducing others to the joys and benefits of aerial hoop. Teaching hoop is even more rewarding than I ever imagined it could be.
Aerial hoop classes take place in two venues:
(1) Bendrigg Trust near Old Hutton (and the M6). These classes are on Friday afternoons, Sunday evenings, and occasionally on Monday afternoons.
(2) Westmorland CrossFit in Kendal town centre. These classes are on Wednesday evenings and Tuesday mornings.
Doubles lessons and one-to-one lessons can also be booked. Your first class will be at a reduced introductory price.
Aerial hoop is for everybody. You don't have to be young, female, slim, tall, or even beautiful! People who like doing aerial hoop LOVE aerial hoop. It makes us feel powerful, positive, confident and happy. Come along and discover the joys of aerial fitness.
