I really meant to post this on Monday, but I got tired/lazy/distracted. And I couldn't get the pictures to upload, and they're kind of important to this post.
AnyADD, on Friday I finally used my Living Social voucher and tried aerial acrobatics! It was beyond fun! (Minus the fact that it took me an hour to get there-it should take half that-and the fact that Katie didn't make it due to aforementioned traffic.)
The instructors split us into groups and we got to try three stations: silks (like Cirque du Soleil style), the rope, and trapeze (not the flying kind (bummer)). I had three middle-aged Jersey ladies in my group who were hilarious and also kind enough to take pictures for me.
|Silks! We cheated a little-I'm standing on a knot.|
|Rope-a lot harder than the silks. It was a nylon (maybe) rope, not a gym class rope.|
|Trapeze! I liked this move because it stretched out my hips.|
I still have rope burn on my foot. Worth it.
