“The Cyr Wheel 101 Workshop covers the fundamentals and basics of Roue Cyr Wheel,” says Alli Spinz. In this workshop, Alli will help you learn how to maintain proper posture, find your balance, and the fun part, the most efficient ways to manipulate the cyr wheel itself. Alli continues, “This is a great way to stay active, work out, while having fun learning a new skill.” Cyr wheel is a fun and unique activity that is accessible for all walks of life. Whether your goal is for fitness, fun, or personal growth, Cyr Wheel will challenge you in new exciting ways.
