_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ So good to be home after an awesome couple of days training with @dakotafox84 and @missheathen. Feels good to spend time getting work done with some totally rad, like-minded ladies. Hope you all have an awesome day.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ My aerial #bff, @missheathen. We performed for the first time together almost 4 years ago. Since then, we have grown in so many ways. We continue to further our training and teaching together, and soon will be opening a #polefitness studio together. I am so excited and fortunate to have such an awesome aerial girlfriend. Tag your best #aerial and #pole friends! It would be so lame without our training buddies!

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Excuse the major crotch shot, but this happened tonight. My very first #spatchcock on #pole with the incredible @dakotafox84. @missheathen and I are so grateful for our hardcore training day today. Dakota - You're wonderful. Huge thanks.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I've shared these photos a million times, but this will always be one of my favorite photoshoots. We climbed into an #abandoned nuclear power plant and got some absolutely stunning shots. Fret not, the company went bankrupt before completing the power plant, so nothing nuclear was ever on location. That's how the story goes, anyway...

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to #love it and be able to make sacrifices for it.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Try this #aerialsilks #conditioning exercise next time you're in the studio or gym! Straddle up and lower your straddle as sloooooly as you can. Keep your feet high and your legs and abs engaged. Maintain good spinal posture. Repeat 5-10 times for an awesome aerial #workout. Too easy? Use straight arm inversions. Tag your friends.

  •   miangelcarmenn Hello @_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ my name is miángel and you inspired me and my friends mikayla and shyla to save up all of our mony to buy an aerial silk it arrived about a month or two ago and we have been working and working on it but now that we have learned all of the easy stuff it is hard to learn now it is hard to learn any new tricks so I was wondering if you have any tips for us? 4w
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @circus_freak123 Do you have an instructor or a place to learn inside? Or a safety mat? That would be a good place to start. Avoid YouTube and take some aerial classes. 4w
  •   miangelcarmenn Lol we don't really have any of that but do you know any aerial classes near us... We live in San Clemente 4w
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Quite seriously, I would take extreme caution teaching yourself aerials with no mat and limited rigging knowledge. I'm not sure of places in your area. Have you tried using Google to search for an instructor? Aerial arts are beautiful and lovely, but also quite dangerous if you're not sure what you're doing. Just be careful and try to find an experienced person to work with. Much love @circus_freak123 4w
  •   miangelcarmenn OK. Thanks for the help we will be very careful and try to buy a safety mat and look for a teacher we know all of the basics like a foot lock or the stuff with a knot like all straddle or stuff like that. Things are going good so far we have never taken serious injuries or anything hopefully we never will. But really you have helped so much and I hope things go well for you 4w
  •   miangelcarmenn So should we not get anything from YouTube? 4w
