Slow down, take the time to acknowledge progress

We are really busy…yay!  You are busy. I know that our students are really busy too. We are so focused on where we want to be tomorrow that we sometimes don’t take the time to acknowledge how far we have come today. Everyday we see our students make so much progress. We have students in our mixed levels lyra (aka Aerial Hoop) class who couldn’t hang from the lyra without their grip slipping when they first started. Now they are effortlessly pulling themselves up and on to the lyra. Pulling oneself to a seated position from a long straight arm hang is quite an accomplishment. Somewhere in our sedentary lifestyle, so many of us, both men and women, lost the ability to do this seemingly simple physical act of a pull up. As kids we climbed trees effortlessly, but as adults we find the action of a pull up or even just hanging from our arms humbling or worse demoralizing. Being able to pull oneself up is a great example of functional strength. Circus Arts and Aerial Yoga are a great way to build functional strength including learning a pullup. While the elite performers fly 40 feet through the air,

Aerial Strength & Flexibility & Family History

The Aerial Strength & Flexibility classes are off to a great  and historic start. In our first class we had a new student with the same last name and family history as Aerial Fit instructor and Circus Building Co-Founder, Clayton Woodson. Turns out while these two have never met, they had heard all of the same family lore and stories. While the Strength & Flexibility class focused on whole body strength exercises and active flexibility stretches, we heard stories about Jessie Woodson James (yup, the gun slinging Jessie James) and the first Woodsons in the new land. John Woodson arrived in the 1700’s with his wife and two sons. The family home was attacked by Indians and John was forced to hide one son in a wash basin and the other in a potato sack. The two sons survived the attack and so the family lore goes, you are either a potato sack Woodson or a wash basin Woodson. At the very least, it makes for a good story. Come check out our newest class Aerial Strength & Flexibility. These classes can be great addition to an existing aerial practice, or a nice way to ease into one. Low classes
