"She would risk heartbreak,
for she craved feeling alive
An untamed creature
addicted to love,
she wanted to burn with desire
to be set free
while flying high
on broken wings." ~n.r. hart
A couple of ladybases graduated today, and I'm so excited to be able to fly!!! I needed to fly today.
A handstand walkover trick which is much more about the giggles than the technique! Thanks for being my base @laurasuzibrown we’re going to have to many more tricks together after the Nordic festival and French Acro convention! Bring on the laughter!
Flying standing h2h has been such a challenging, frustrating, enlightening adventure. I never thought I would base it!! This was truly a monumental moment for me. I am so grateful to my coaches @aaronlindacro and @christinemoonbeam for their encouragement, trust, and skillful instruction. + + +

Hey Boulder friends! If you’ve ever wanted to try #AcroYoga now’s your chance! I will be teaching Acro tonight with the badass @trevor.dye at @bulldogyogaboulder at 7:15pm. Don’t worry we will be starting with something a little more foundational then this 👆🏼but I will still pick your booty up and hoist you in the air so that’s really fun. Come learn all about basing, flying, spotting, and have the time of your life! 🙌🏼🔥❤️ #bulldogyoga#acroclass#boulderyoga .
Amazing flyer/ acroangel: @samileapalmer
Hyvää juhannusta! ☀️🌦️🌨️⚡⛱️🌿🌳(Midsummer eve) Although there is no such thing here on the same level as in Finland, apparently. So just doing silly poses after regular Friday conditioning class since feeling a bit more rubbery than usual.
Ways I have met people for acroyoga so far in California:
1.) Saw someone doing yoga at the gym and we did acro before telling each other our names (@yendavina ) ✓
2.) Meet someone at a yoga studio (@hashtagtran ) ✓
3.) Follow someone on Instagram and then run into them @coldstone while getting icecream (@abilola90 and @hogla_00 ) ✓
4.) Tinder with a profile saying you are looking for an acro partner (@mlle.adventure ) ✓
5.) Bother another soldier about trying it and end up practicing with their friend instead (@nicholette_betz ) ✓ -_-_-_-_-_-_-
What I'm trying to say is, walk up to anyone you see ever and say "Hey let's do acroyoga and chances are, you will have someone to do acroyoga with because acroyoga brings out the little kid in us all and everyone always wants their little kid self to come out because that's probably one of the best versions of ourselves. Also, @nicholette_betz is a magnificent flyer and I'ma turn her into a killer ladybase before I leave California too.

I fly too! I’m just not as graceful as @bethanybalances ! .
Tomorrow is results day, and next week Luke and I are going camping hopefully! I love camping, although I can’t help but dream of when it’s all packed and ready to go in a campervan. I’ve recently started to become so excited for the future, which is a nice change from being terrified. Although maybe this excitement has come from being more present in the now!
Today I learned Turkish getups! It was really fun and super challenging! We were instructed to do 40 of them 💪 I tried different sized weights to see what I could lift compared to what I could lift AND balance. I told the trainer afterwards that I look forward to trying that with a human on my hand and he looked at me like I was crazy 😂 haha yay for surprise acro strength training! 🤸♀️🤸♀️🤸♀️ #ladybase#turkishgetup#strengthtraining#acro#acroyoga#ayi#goldsgym#acroyogaasheville
Happy International Yoga Day everyone ✨
Balancing the lovely @acro.orin on my feet. This pose is challenging but when it gets to the right spot it’s pretty stable. Bases, keep the foot on the neck soft and bend the knee to help the flyer get their hips over their shoulders. Flyers, straighten the arms and make slow movements to utilize the bend of the knee. Once the hips are over bases can slowly straighten the leg (make sure to keep it centered!). Use spotting. Pose inspired by a post I saw forever ago posted by @invertedlifesf! .
