MOST RECENT

Technique vs. strength. This concept is something I’ve worked a lot on to find a proper balance. It’s been a really interesting thing to explore in my acro practice and I am starting to feel much more even on both playing fields.

@driftingmaple and I dialing in some of our more fun entrances to H2H. Minimal steps and so much stability for our sizes. 🤩

Continually grateful for this community class. Moving toward the edge of their comfort zones and supporting one a another with smiles on their faces. .

If you would like to try out acroyoga I am here to let you know that anyone (this includes YOU) can do it. There is a beginner friendly class this evening @formabham. 6:45-8:15. $15 drop in. Co-teaching with the wonderful @magiccityyogi.

Moving is a lot more difficult this time around than I expected it to be. I miss my Denver acro family with all of my heart and I miss living with my sister, who is nothing short of my best friend. I miss getting to hold my baby nephew every day and getting to play with my niece. However, I also find myself in a state of excitement because of how thrilled I am to begin this new journey of becoming a doctor. I love my new house and how it is already becoming filled with every shade of house plant. My new roommates are awesome and those of who I’ve stayed connected with here in SLC have welcomed me back with ease. I’ve pushed myself way outside of my comfort zone with all of this, but I find this sticky and uncomfortable place surprisingly joyous and full of growth. I can’t wait to continue making new friends here and having new and challenging experiences. I know I’m exactly where I need to be.

I'm over the top excited about our teacher training crew this year. They're embodied and capable yet super humble. They can coach tons of acro but work well with brand new students. They can train and work hard, but they can still play with child-like wonder and enthusiasm. We've seen it in TT during our first 2 modules, now we want you to see them too! August 18 at the Boulder Circus Center 2-8pm, our 2018 graduates will put on an amazing day festival that I know will light up your acro life. If you're within a few hours come and join the fun! Holler at me if you have an questions.

#flashbackfriday to the 4th of July with the amazing crew (@sunkissed__red, @macy2341, @photofox92). It has been a delight watching these three’s practice level up. Cool to see them comfortable in a 2high on the 4th. Note the sweet spotting. Good students!

There is a jam tonight from 6:30-8:30 @headoverheelsgymnasticsal. It only costs $5 and is an awful lot of fun. There’s no pool but tons of crash mats and padded flooring.

I'm proud of this video because I have tried to fly on this partner balancing exercise a number of times in the last 8 months but this is the first time I've actually been flexible and brave enough to get upside down! 💪😁 🤸‍♀️

I told myself I was going to take it easy the last few days I was in Colorado, and then @theacrodragon invites me to play and create. Still sore and happy from these days. This is a little price of a H2H flow from high to low that we came up with. .

Well I've made it 26 revolutions around the sun and am already making the steps to get this 27th one started right. I've really delved into the acro world and upped my handstand game this past year. I have now been teaching a weekly acro class with @acroandrea at @vaohio for the past year now, which has had been my highlight of the week every time! It's been amazing introducing this practice to the people there and watching how far my students have come in that year.

I love the friends and people I'm surrounded by in my life. They all know how to lift me up, make me laugh, and give me the most amazing happy birthday ever!!! 😃 (swipe to see @acrobeard @bebobunny @missdominicana10 @brainarid launching and catching me😁😁😁) The gratitude I have for my friends and family is beyond words. Y'all have helped me grow and continue to grow in ways I can't imagine. I only hope I have been able to return the love and growth everyone has sent my way. 26 has been a wonderful time, but I'm stoked about the opportunities 27 has to offer!

Very stoked on the class rocking some skills last night. Everyone demonstrating a lot of control and awareness in their shoulder stands. Even making some cool shapes 😎. @miss.may.eye basing @hauteholly with @apex_bham on the spotting.

Come join us next week for even more skills and good times @formabham.

Sometimes you just have to put a croc on it. .

I always loved this pose and thought it was so unobtainable. I first learned it at Pitch Catch Circus and was stunned how accessible it was with the proper entrance. I currently prefer a bicep stand entrance, but have been exploring a few other fun variations.

Had a wonderful community class yesterday in support of First Light. I am grateful to be able to support this organization through teaching Acro. We did some really fun counter balances in class yesterday. If you are interested in trying out Acro, @magiccityyogi and I are teaching a fundamentals class tonight from 6:45-8:15 @formabham. Acro fosters trust, connection, and communication. No partner or experienced needed. Come and see how accessible supporting one another really is. Drop in is $15.

Excited to start feeling some control in this counter balance. Feels like I’m doing a handstand on my feet. .

Week three of @magiccityyogi and myself’s acro series continues tomorrow night @formabham. We’ve had a great bunch of supportive people learning all the Acro. If you’d like to drop in to say hello we would be stoked to enjoy your company. Drop in’s are $15. Class is from 6:45-8:15. We are learning some very cool photogenic poses this week 😎.

Life in Colorado looks like this so far. Thanks @socoacro for showing me around a bit. I'm grateful for nature and the level of appreciation for it in the people I've met. Get out and put and handstand on something!

Sometimes the grass is greener where you’re standing on it, not on the other side.

Every time I come back to Denver I am filled with a feeling of community and family. The people and the environment surrounding is breathtaking and I find myself in a state of slow motion bliss.
.
Thank you to those that host me, those that play and train with me, and those that teach me. 🙌🏼❤️🤗 the names are far too many to mention but I love you all!

Laughter was my first reaction when I first started acroyoga. Everything about it was just so silly and so much fun! It returned me to a state of play that I didn't realize I needed.
.
Lately though I've found myself comparing myself to other people and this has distracted me from experiencing this laughter as fully. I'll find myself thinking, well why can't i do that trick? Or I should be further along in my practice than I really am. Both of which are rather ridiculous thoughts because I don't know how much time people put into their training, what their movement background is, or how naturally talented they may be. I'm exactly where I'm meant to be, and there's a reason for that. .
It's interesting because I've never really been one to compare myself to others in the past. I've always just done my own thing and been content with that. I'm quite thankful for this recent shift in awareness though. It has allowed me to expand my perspective and appreciate everyone for the beautiful part they play in this tapestry of life. Now others provide a source of inspiration for my own journey. With this renewed perspective I have found myself experiencing this practice like i did when i started out, laughing all the way. 😄 .
