TESTIMONIALS

"Astra got me ‘hooked on hoop’ from the first class. Patience, passion and imagination describe her style and she got me and my fellow beginners coming back for more in following courses. She is a gracious and inspiring performer – I have been doing hoop for four months now and she always finds something to inspire and engage me."

"Astra's lessons are great fun, and I learnt a huge lot at the same time. She is very good at tailoring the teaching to each student's level and going over the things each of us found difficult, as well as helping us go that extra mile when we felt ready. Thank you Astra and I'm really looking forward to more aerial fun!"
