“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.” Julia Child
This couldn’t be more true when it comes to the aerial arts. One thing I love most about Lyra is that once you have learned a new trick there is 100 more waiting for you! You are forever evolving, never stagnant.
In the spirit of moving forward and teaching an old dog some new tricks 😛 (me 36yo), I have teamed up with the always inspiring and completely humbling Anya Shevelyuk Aerial & Flexibility Coach to bring you 10 fun aerial hoop splits to keep your practice thriving.
The #LyraSplitsChallenge is all about fun and growing as a community as well as your personal practice. Don’t compare yourself to others, comparison is the thief of joy. If your not deep in your splits it does not matter, simply have a go learn new moves and expand your experience. But if you do want to get deep in those splits Anya has some pretty awesome online courses that I will be checking out myself too.
Did I also mention that we have $500 worth of prizes to giveaway?!?! Woo!

The 10 Splits!
Day 1. Side Bar Split
Day 2.Amazon split or Lion in a tree split. Variation 1 or 2 depending on your level.
For me I take a bind because my split looks like neither of these and its a great way to actively assist the glutes to get them to continue to open up and become more flexible and pliable.
Day 3. Shoulder stand Split
Day 4. Spanset hip hold split
Day 5. Intermediate and advanced version. Back balance split
Day 6. Russian Split
Day 7. Horizontal Bullseye Split
Day 8 Alien Split/Jigsaw Split
Day 9. Hip Hold Split
Day 10. Handstand Split
