Melissa has been taking circus classes for years and one of the aerial schools in the Orlando area had a groupon for aerial silks classes and once she told me I added it to the list of things I wanted to do this year. So I bought the groupon and Thursday I finally had time to get down their and take one of the classes. Let me tell you, that is one of the hardest workouts I've had in a while but it was so much fun! I learned some amazing things and will be going back to try new things.
They are all a little blurry because I was moving but how cool it that? This was one of the first tricks I learned!
It took a bit to get use to this one because you keep wanting to put your arms on the ground because you feel like you are falling at first. I learned how to pull my legs in and spin even faster which did make me a little sick to my stomach so I may have to take some Dramamine before class next time.
This one was one of the harder tricks that I learned because it's all core and upper body. I will admit that I have great leg strength but my upper body isn't the best so this one is going to take some work!
I know it is blurry but this was the coolest and last trick I learned! Maybe next time I'll get some more picture and I'll be a little more stable so they wont be blurry!
