Flying High

I started doing aerial silk after seeing one of my FAVORITE people Annie Dike, of Have Wind Will Travel  doing silk on her sailboat.  I thought that that would be an awesome way to stay in shape when in a confined space.  After one class at with Amanda, at Above Ground Aerial Arts, I was HOOKED!  Of course, my instructor made it look so dang easy and it was NOT!  It took me almost 5 months before I could even get off the ground.  There was a whole lot of grunting and not much climbing in the beginning!


And in case you want MORE BACK STORY,

I have been a dancer, gymnast and even made it to a 3rd degree blackbelt in Taekwondo (about 10 years ago).  All of those activities WRECKED by body and I needed Rotator Cuff Surgery to repair the torn ligaments in my left shoulder.  So of course it makes perfect sense to beginning aerial silk just 4 months after my surgery by Dr Kevin Darr!  He is an excellent orthopedic surgeon that really took into account my activity level and did everything he could to make sure I could do just about anything!

Dr Darr is also the doctor that performed my 2016 Total Hip Replacement (more evidence of Body Wrecking!).  I sold my dance studio because  I wasn’t sure if I could continue that strenuous line of work.  Again, I was amazed at what  a great job he did on my surgery and just 4 months after my THR, I was back doing SILKS!   I  couldn’t believe it myself!

I guess I have to thank my amazing parents for always making me believe I could do anything.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!

I am truly blessed to have a human form that is still able to do what it does.  Maybe a little slower, maybe taking more effort, but I am still kicking it!
