Katia will take you through hypnotising transitions on the Lyra!

This workshop will focus on creating smooth combinations that will allow you to float from one move to the next on the lyra. You will learn a series of spins that combine interesting rolls, melting transitions and effortless flow. Manipulating and moving through the mid-area of the hoop is one of Katia's favourite techniques, and she is excited to share her hypno-teasing secrets. 

Pre-Requisites:
Pearls (Intermediate 1) Lyra and above experience. You just need to be able to have a general understanding of how to manipulate and sit in the lyra. Strong inverts are not necessary. You can do all of the tricks on a low or high hoop. Being able to do a side sit, babe in the moon, mermaid/angel and delilah are essential (and delilah to crescent moon is beneficial but not necessary!). 

All bookings are paid in full and can not be refunded or credited to any other service or product at Sky Sirens once purchased. Students from other studios are most welcome!

A note to Katia’s students: If you are taking a class with Katia, please be aware that she is Hard of Hearing. Katia has Sensorineural Deafness and is completely Deaf in her left ear and is losing the hearing in her right ear. She calls her classes “Quiet Classes”, which don’t have background music during demonstrations and students only speak one at a time. Please make sure that you are always standing in front of her when you speak, and don’t try and talk into her ears (she needs to lipread you!). Katia can’t hear when you are talking over the top of her, so always be mindful of being as quiet and respectful as you can. A great way of getting Katia’s attention is to wave at her, or tap her on the shoulder. Please don’t ask your fellow classmates to explain moves if Katia hasn’t heard you ask your question. Sometimes Katia may have an Auslan Interpreter in class with her. If this is the case for your class, please look at Katia when you are talking and don’t look at the Interpreter. Although being Deaf has it’s challenges, Katia is proud to be Hard of Hearing and it forms a part of her identity. Please be respectful of this, and don’t offer Katia advice on ‘curing’ Deafness. She doesn’t need to be cured.
