New Adventures: Aerial at The Aviary

Let me just lead with when I started this I was seriously out of shape and got vertigo regularly. But I kept seeing people all over Instagram, with such strength and grace. And I really wanted to have that. I thought is would fulfill my need to feel Adventurous in my life. (Check out this post to see how I came to this.) So, after seeing a news piece about a new studio opening with just that I had to try.

 

It was almost comical how easy, fun, and tiring that intro class at The Aviary was. I was shaking when I left. Not sure if it was more from the exertion or from excitement.

All I know is that I found something to be really excited about. And its been a long time since I actually wanted to do something that took so much exertion.

And the longer I am there the stronger I get. More flexible. More daring.

I have met some great people there. It gave me the fun, inclusive community I’ve been looking for since my dance years.

I also grew on the inside. I finally started my business then. While there I tried my hand at apparel design. (That’s what we’re all wearing in the photos.)
