Hi, Rachel! I was looking for the “Purchase your own apparatus” tutorial but couldn´t find it. As I mas new to aerial arts it would be nice to have some help finding the best hoop for me. Could you please tell me of the tutorial is still online and wheel can I find it? Thanks!
Thanks for the question. I actually decided against publishing that tutorial because I did not want to endorse a particular product over another and also as an instructor, i.e. not a professional rigger, I am not qualified to recommend or guarantee the safety of particular products.
I AM however more than happy to chat with you directly via email - (email@example.com) to see if I can put you in the right direction and answer any particular questions or concerns you may have. It's best to do PLENTY of research first before purchasing your own apparatus and I can CERTAINLY help with all of the practical considerations - things like a heavy versus a light hoop, length of silk or hammock etc but the safety aspect is always at your own risk and determination based on how much you are willing to spend etc.
Hit me up on email!
