The day finally came :) I think my body wishes it hadn't, but it was great! I ended up being the only student in both my classes, and had a great time in both. So far I like hoop/trapeeze a little bit more, but silks was fun too. Hard! They both are. Lots of upper body strength, but that will come pretty quickly. As will the man hands. I have two rips already--very 1994!
I don't remember all of what we did, but here's a relatively complete selection.
knee hang, bird's nest, mermaid, stand, tuck hang, angel, half angel, old man on the moon, plank
pike mount, straddle mount, fetus, old man on the moon, mermaid (maybe?)
square pose, cocoon, inverted straddle, inverted angel, pullover into sitting on the knot, pullover, plank, candy cane knot.
Can't wait until next week!
