What is ‘Lyra’? Lyra is another name for aerial hoop. Lyra is the equipment and the discipline of aerial hoop!

The aerial hoop provides the perfect frame for acrobatic bodyweight exercises.

You’ll be having so much fun during aerial hoop classes you’ll hardly realise you are breaking a sweat, not to mention building muscle and burning calories!

Established in 2016, The Lyra Project is Pretoria’s first and only aerial hoop studio run by internationally accredited instructors.

Owner and head instructor, Alison Ballard, has been training in aerial arts since 2014. After only a few short years she emerged as a well-recognised and highly regarded instructor, instructor trainer and international Pole & Aerial Sports judge (IPSF).
