Step by Step Instructions

While the book is written in French, the step-by-step pictures make it easy to understand regardless of language. Each move is graded by difficulty level, from one to three stars. (Novice - Advanced - Professional). However, it's important to note that this book should not be used as a substitute for professional coaching. We strongly recommend that readers attempt moves only under the supervision of an experienced aerialist.

Lyra book

This is an exceptional reference for anyone who loves Lyra. I have had this book for many years now purchased through Firetoys and can't imagine what I would do without it. The drawings are beautiful and easy to decipher. Well worth the price!

my hoop bible

I ve waited so many months for this book to be in stock and it was absolutly worth it.
you need to have hooping experiance, the drawings are sometimes a bit weird and it is in french, which doesn´t really matter.
But until now i have not found any better book.
The book includes single pointe, double pointe, static and figures in movement and also drops, and duo hooping.
It my aerial hoop bible and I take it with me to every training.

Very useful aerial hoop book

I purchased the Aerial Ring Methodology Book, even though its in French it has a lot of different, moves, rolls and doubles work which you don't find in other books. The pictures are fairly clear and the step by step rolls instructions are very helpful.

Hoop Book

Variety of different moves both static and movement based. Have been able to progress on Aerial Hoop, very helpful book.

Every move you have every wanted to do and more!

Saw that this book finally came back in stock and just had to buy it as a Christmas present to myself this year. I had heard amazing things about it and it is even better than I expected! I've gotten other aerial books but this one by far has the most diverse moves of any of them. I would say though that it is more geared towards an aerialist that have a good foundation already in aerial hoop; since the book doesn't have any written explanation on how to enter and exit moves, only drawn pictures. However, the pictures still give you a great idea on what you need to do to get into the moves. This book has really spark my imagination and now I feel like I have so many fun new moves to look forward to in my training. If you are thinking of getting this book do hesitate to buy it. It really is worth every penny!
