Pole and Aerial Small Group Fitness Studio

Intermediate Aerial Hoop (Lyra)


This class is taught by:

Maya D'Alessio

Aerial and Yoga Instructor

Maya D’Alessio started as an aerials student at the studio in 2016 and it quickly became an addiction. With a background as a yoga teacher, she tries to approach aerial training with body awareness and acceptance. She has a passion for gentle, restorative, and relaxing yoga to help restore the body and mind. As a new aerial instructor she is excited to engage with students and bring her yoga background and obsession with human anatomy in to her aerials teaching. When she’s not in the studio you can find her at home with her cats or in her graduate research lab slowly getting closer to graduation.
For those who have mastered the basics, this class focuses on more advanced tricks requiring a greater level of strength and technique, as well as stylization and the basics of performance on hoop.

Prerequisites: Completion of the Beginner Aerial Hoop program at Brass Butterflies or equivalent from another studio, ability to do a pullover, at least one unassisted chin-up, tuck-through and reverse (also known as skin-the-cat). If you're unsure if you are ready for this class, please contact Brass Butterflies to determine your eligibility.
