Hey guys, I have decided to DIY a Lyra! After extensive research and pricing, I realized that what makes these beauties so costly is the $7,000 machine that bends carbon steel or aluminum! My father, who builds antique cars, (the ultimate DIYer hehe) was able to get me in contact with a metal fabricator whom I negotiated a solid price for his services and now my business, , is offering Aerial hoops for a much cheaper price. I am still in experimental stages of this project but so far so good!!! I know there is much debate between and aluminum but I decided on steel for my first edition. I also decided on single point but am now working on a double point. I posted photos on my fb page *see link* if you anyone is interested in seeing the progress. Also, If anyone of you have DIY aerial equipment please share! Any advice? Any regrets about your aerial hoop purchase? Thanks!

 

*Note, there is a smaller machine available out there that is much more tedious and leaves a lot of room for kinking the metal but it is totally possible if you know what you are doing. I can't find the video at the moment but is is of a man using this machine. It was one only tutorials out there on this that I could find when I started this process.

Where can I access my classes?

Unfortunately, I am going to have to MANUALLY transfer over 1700 students to the new site. When it is ready I'll be posting EVERYWHERE with instructions on how to log into your account. I'll do whatever it takes to make this work so you don't lose your access.

Predicted launch date: January 23rd, 2016

Thank you for your patience and support!

Much love,
Safire
