So for those of you that didn’t read my last blog about my new and exciting hobby (I guess that’s all of you *whap whap whap whaaaaaap* (insert sad and awkward tune)
I do Aerial silk! But my studio (aerial studio Arnhem) asked if I wanted to join a hoop workshop and since I had no plans, except reading, and I do need to get out more to suck some vit D, I decided to go!
Aerial hoop is performed also in the air but revolves around doing tricks in an circular object called, surprise, a hoop.
You’d think its not that hard right? Can’t be that difficult, hoisting yourself in a high rope, right? WRONG. Dang, afterwards I looked like a blue spotted leopard with a hernia.
Most are turning yellow already but still proud to have evidence of finally working out 😎
And now, for some cool pictures wich you are all dying to see:
Especially proud of the first one because that was HARD! First you pull yourself in the hoop, then you hold the upper bar, do a backflip over yourself IN the hoop, arms stay where they are, then put 1 foot on the lower bar, do another backflip IN the hoop so your behind dangles for all to see and STRIEEECH your leg and keep your balance. It. Is. Hardcore. 🤔 and don’t forget to point those toes to look less like an idiot in a hoop and more like an experienced artist. 😁
I loved it! Most of the time I stumble through life, dropping, hitting, throwing things by accident so aerial silk makes me feel more elegant and feminine while also being a bad ass muscle chick! It is tough but not as repetitive or sweatbreaking as going to the gym wich I quit because of that. I think I have really found my thing!
