In the Air

Emily took me to her Aerial yoga class on Thursday. I expected to just sit in the lobby area to read, but then she showed me around the studio, and I got to talk to the instructor, which convinced me to pay a drop-in fee to attend the class alongside her. It was nuts, uncomfortable, and awesome. And I signed up for the rest of the session (three more classes), and got a ten dollar credit for myself and Emily via a Friend Referral.

I've got a couple friends who attend aerial arts classes (one who hoops, one who does acrobatic silks, and one of Emily's friends takes pole (dancing, but it's not dancing so much as exercise) ). I thought the studio was located in the next borough over, but it's on the other side of my own! And classes are cheap (though you do have to pay the total of sessions in the courses at once). After this session of classes, I'll definitely look into more classes. Emily's friend Liz already invited us to the aerial arts workshop (covering silks, hoops, tumbling, and pole).

Pretty excited. 236 x 193

Here's an example of stuff we did this class (I did not do the last move, but this is a procession of poses. I did do an inversion with a different pose, and it was a bit beyond me for a first day)

I hope I shall! I hear the silks cutting in will take a little getting used to, but I'm excited for the next class (ooh, I added a photo of some of the moves we did in the class if you wanna check it out)

You are the second person on my list to talk about it but the first to show photos! It does look exciting - but I would never dare going alone XD

Yeah, I never would have considered doing it alone. If Emily moves back to Seattle, I MIGHT consider continuing alone, but I wouldn't START attending on my own, anyway...

This looks wonderful! I've never heard of/seen this before but I'm glad you've signed up for some more. Yay!

It's awesome and scary at the same time :)
