Wooahhh, what a feeling, when you’re hanging from the ceiling…
Hey you lovely lot. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to learn the art of aerial hoop, because, well, it’s pretty damn awesome. I go to the gym and also run quite a lot but I wanted a more fun, exercise based hobby. Yeah, ok, I know it’s mid-Feb, but I finally attended my first lesson this week and absolutely loved it! I’d expected it to be tough, and man, is tough an understatement. The base of the hoop was level with my face, so just getting up there was an acomplishment in itself but from there I learnt a few basic poses; man in the moon, secretary and delilah. Now, I’m not going to lie to you, it’s two days later and I’m still in extreme pain, mainly my forearms and inner elbows and knees! Lorna, our lovely instructor explained that it would take a few weeks to become acustomed to holding the weight of our bodies on such unusual places, so I’m expecting to be sore for the forseeable future and anyway, who needs skin on their bones? I’ll be tracking my progress here in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more aerialist wannabe moves.
