Anti Gravity Yoga – Aerial Yoga

Aerial-Yoga-3

I had been wanting to take an Aerial Yoga class for a while…actually I wanted to try the circus aerial classes first, but then I got smart and thought I should do the yoga one first and I think I made the right decision!
My class was last night at Aeriform Arts in Noho, it was the closest one and seemed the least amount of intimidation. The space was small and quaint and before I left it had said that only 4 confirmed for the class of seven. When I got there I was the third girl there and then two more people showed up along with the teacher. Still small so I felt relaxed.
The first thing the teacher said was that when you stand next to your hammock the loop should come right down in between your hip and crotch area. I found the perfect size and placed my mat underneath and waited for the class to begin.
Me and another girl where first timers one was her 2nd time and the others come here regularly. The beginning it was very chill and still yoga pose-ish then when you start playing more with the hammock the yoga part became more intense more pilate-ish.Very deep stretching that I don’t know where else you can do that kind of stretching!Felt good and painful at the same time. I am pretty flexible and I was sweating which is good for me.
THEN we started to get into our hammocks and once that happened I started to feel dizzy being upside down..and it was my first day of “that day of the month” so maybe that is also why it was tough for me?! But the teacher told us to just stay inside our hammocks and that was really nice. BUT he did say that being upside down is great for beauty! So I gave it another go and when I was standing upside down.YES, STANDING upside down I just told my mind to calm down and I shut my eyes. Thats when everything was okay again. No headache, no dizziness. Wish I had known this earlier….
Either way had loads of fun, I am in pain today.In a good way! I went ahead and bought the ten classes deal. Usually the classes are about $20 but for ten you get it for $15/each.
After I get used to the yoga I think I want to branch off and try other ones like silks, aerial hammock, aerial cirque?! maybe thats a little ways down the road…but I am curious!

Glitter Chocolate for Valentines Day

Just a little idea for that special someone, or if you want to treat yourself to some glittery sweetness, this is the chocolate for you!
I bought some edible glitter in the colors pink, purple and gold and placed it in the candy jewel mold. Advice here is to use a glitter/food duster brush to get the sides and all.( I found out afterwards! whoopsy!) Then you melt the chocolate. The one I got was super easy to do in the microwave. And using a spoon place it in the mold and tap the chocolate into the mold when its all placed.When you let the chocolate cool, dont place it in the fridge or freezer, it will create bubbles or add moisture. Just let it cool in room temperature.
After I took them out the glitter wasn’t on the sides so I went back and added some more glitter!lol The more the merrier, right!
Then go ahead and box those sweets and give it to that special someone! Hopefully you will give it a try and let me know how it turned out!!
