On Wednesday I took a test (along with several other classmates) to see if I could do all of the required poses and drops to start taking intermediate silk classes and guess what? I passed! It was an amazing feeling. I was so weak when I started taking classes in February. I couldn’t even do some of the most basic introductory poses. To be graduating into intermediate feels a little bit surreal because I remember watching everyone in that class and thinking I would never be able to do what they were doing! On Sunday I went for the first time and it was a lot of fun to learn some new things! This class is definitely a lot more exhausting as we’re doing most everything from an aerial invert – no more sitting in the hammock knot – this is all holding on to the free silks!
I’m going to start taking my camera to open silks to take some better quality videos for editing/sharing here on the blog! I think it would be fun to post a weekly video of my progress outside of grainy Instagram videos. What do y’all think? Yay or nay?
Are there any questions that you might have around this topic? Let me know! I would love to answer your questions in a video!
