What’s Next?

I would like to start this post by saying “i’m sorry” for all of you who feel like I’ve neglected you.On the way from London to Berlin

I changed countries (again), moved from UK (London) to Germany (Berlin).

In the past few months my husband and I didn’t know where we will live and I was a bit out of my game but now i’m back!

I am going back to train seriously and though I tried to maintain my power i didn’t really do anything artistic since May, so the next 2 months (starting week 2 of September) will be all about going back to train with my aerial acrobatics trainer, my contortion trainer and my lovely friend and trapeze partner.

Grand Split (Splits Away) – Aerial Hoop Class for Beginners

Grand Split - Aerial Hoop Class for BeginnersThe Grand Split (Splits Away) is a beginner’s move. It is a pose by itself but it is also a transition to a lot of other moves.

It is a relatively easy move, but the way you get in and out of it is very important.
I always teach this move on the 1st or 2nd lesson, because this is how my students start to understand not only the move itself but also how important it is to be smooth and to keep your movements clean.

Warm-Up for aerial acrobatics – Beginners

Aerial Hoop Warm-UpHi everybody, I was asked to make a warm-up and stretches video – so i did 🙂
