✔ Close fitting, stretchy bottoms that cover the backs of your knees. Leggings are always a great option.

✔ Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
✖ Shoes are to be left at the studio door and bare feet during class is recommended.
✖ All jewellery should be removed and clothing with zips must be avoided to prevent damaging the apparatus.
Where can I find you?
We are located at Unit 34 which is inside Exeter Business Centre on Marsh Green Road West. Once you enter the Business Centre reception you will see a whiteboard with our name and a doorbell. Ring the doorbell and one of the instructors will buzz you through! Then head to Unit 34 which is in the third section of the building.
Free parking is available at the Business Centre.
Do I need to be strong or flexible to join?
We get this question ALL the time and the answer is absolutely not! Whilst it will certainly help to have some strength or flexibility, it is certainly not a requirement. The beginner classes are designed for those with no experience and will guide you through the basic skills when you first start as well as body conditioning exercises. Classes will be challenging but you will notice your strength and confidence improve week by week.
What can I expect in my first class?
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your very first class so that you can meet your instructor and fill out a participation form.
Your class will start with a warm-up to increase your heart rate and get your joints moving through a range of motions. This will be followed by apparatus-specific conditioning exercises to develop your strength and prep your body for the skills you will be learning. You will then be taught how to get on and off the hoop, or basic climbs and knots on silks, followed by some simple moves. There is usually the opportunity to take some pictures near the end of the session. The class will then finish with a cool down stretch that focuses on loosening all those upper body muscles which have been working hard!
When do your classes run?
