_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ A flawless #triplestardrop, executed by the fearless @garratchet. You've come so far!! Side rotations like this one need a huge side sit-up to start, a strong core, and a star shape the entire time. I see soooo many floppy star drops on Instagram... Not this one!! @garratchet @garratchet @garratchet

  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @garratchet Preach!!! Learn from a trained professional instructor... Don't learn drops from videos! @smallfrycel 14h
  •   garratchet I'm telling ya! Learning on your own isn't worth the risk! You think, "yeah I can do this." But one simple thing wrong and you could seriously injure yourself. Waverly showed me a story of a woman who taught herself and was paralyzed and she had been doing it for 10 years.... @smallfrycel we are just trying to help! 14h
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @garratchet @smallfrycel Look up Tresa Honaker. Her story is incredible and should continue to be spread amongst other aerialists. Wrapping wrong could change your entire life... Unfortunately, videos can't spot you or correct you. Just looking out for fellow flyers. 14h
  •   garratchet That's the woman you sent the story about right? 13h
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Yes. Rebekah Leech has a great story on her website about Tresa and the dangers of teaching yourself drops from videos. Gives me the willies just thinking about all the potential accidents! @garratchet 13h
  •   smallfrycel @_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I'm training with someone from cirque don't stress too much lol. But thankyou for your concern and your help I will check them out 12h
  •   savgrace Wow, he's really good. Hey, @garratchet, ever thought of performing? I think you should 3h
  •   garratchet @savgrace thank you! But unfortunately no, I'm more of an introvert. I typically like to train alone. I have terrible stage fright and I poop my pants in fear. happens right? 3h

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ #Doublestrapeze tonight, as promised. Very much a work in progress, but I'm pleased we put together some new stuff! It will be so pretty all cleaned up.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Balance split from standing tonight at #AshevilleAerialArts rehearsal. Almost where I want it to be, but then again, my Moma taught me to never be satisfied and to always shoot farther than what you're aiming for.

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @leilaricciardo reminded me of how freaky these #backwalkovers were when I first started working on them again. That big safe mat was killing my momentum, but I was scared! Old video (over a year, maybe), but had to share for progress report!

  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @xoxo_shruti I don't do any aerial yoga, so I can't give any good advice on that. Honestly I don't really do yoga on the ground either. What I do is more athletic/artistic aerials. Anyone can do what I do if they train hard enough and are dedicated to their passion. I'm not special... Just a hard worker. 6d
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ @xoxo_shruti We offer aerial yoga at the studio I teach at, and it's very gentle with big fluffy mats below. It's not difficult, most anyone with an able body could do it. Good luck in your aerial training :) 6d
  •   tasha_fire I love how honest you are! 6d
  •   xoxo_shruti Thank you SO SO SO much!!!!! You honestly have no idea how much you helped me!! Thank you 6d

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Facing my fears while trying to straighten my legs and trust my budding back/shoulder #flexibility. Going from standing to bridge on one leg is a challenge. I'm not the young #gymnast I once was, but I'm very happy with my recent progress. I found that doing sets of 4-5 back-walkovers while trying to pick up the speed helps train them. One day at a time!

  •   sitpoell For sure. I got through it too... All the time. I hope things look up for you and you don't go through it very often / hope it improves. Much love girlie. If you ever want to talk feel free!! <3 2w

  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ Thanks for sharing you feel it, too! Things are going really great for me at the moment, I have so much to be thankful for. Most of the time I'm up, literally and emotionally. I don't talk about it much, but it's a very real thing so many of us experience from time to time. Thanks for your kindness. @sitpoell 2w
  •   sitpoell We do indeed. Well that's good that you share because it lets others know that they're not the only ones. I am glad things are going well for you right now! 2w
  •   luvlymoonwall @_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I totally resonate with your description of depression and can really relate. Sending you love seastar 2w
  •   kelserboo Thanks for sharing with us! I've battled depression since I was a teenager and I had a really bad "outbreak" in October of last year which I'm still picking myself back up from. While I'd rather no one know the pain of depression, it helps to know that I'm not alone and that other people struggle too. Wishing you all the best! 2w
  •   maggie_king_ Stretching is one of my favorite remedies for feeling down. Hope you feel better soon, from a young aerialist with depression as well who looks up to you so much. ♡ 2w
  •   filiperosaphotos I love you 2w
