_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_ @jaclynkateri We didn't at first. Judging that it was a live tree, we decided to test the integrity with a few climbs before committing to the shoot. The male assistant (twice my size) we had today first tested the weight and we determined it would (most likely) be okay for the shoot, as long as I was gentle and calm with movements - no drops or dives, no jerky or jolting movements, etc. There ultimately is no guarantee that an total failure won't happen, but that was a risk (in my personal outdoor rigging experience) I was willing to take for the photos. The tree proved to be sturdy enough as I thought it would. :) 1w

_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? 3w
  •   _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. 3w
  •   miangelcarmenn Lol we don't really have any of that but do you know any aerial classes near us... We live in San Clemente 3w
  •   _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 3w
  •   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 3w
  •   miangelcarmenn So should we not get anything from YouTube? 3w

  •   carolina_vitorino What a view! 4w
  •   candydonya How can i get one of those tripod things to hold aerial silks 4w
  •   _w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ This is a portable aerial rig from the Aerial Angels. Not all are tripod shaped - you can get one with 4 legs or an A-frame shape. There are options depending on your preference. Google "Ludwig portable aerial rigs." I like the quad-style. They're pricey, but a worthy investment. If you plan to perform or teach, it will eventually pay for itself (given you charge enough for your services!). Best of luck. @candydonya 4w
  •   candydonya @_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ thank you! 4w
  •   jeasilveira Aí que perfeito! Que sonho! Dá vontade ficar olhando pra essa foto! 4w

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I made this a couple nights ago to promote Aerial Space, the studio I teach at (hence the hashtag #AerialSpaceCadet - when I use that tag, you'll notice I'm always in the same place!), and it's blown up all over!! Pass it around... I'm seeing it all over Facebook and Instagram!!!! Haahahahhahaha!!! @lyramarie85

_w_a_v_e_r_l_y_ I hurt my lower back last Thursday deadlifting, so I absolutely should NOT have been up in the air waiting for students to arrive today (excuse the form)... But, dammit, it's where I'm supposed to be! Being injured is the worst, but it's a good time to take a break and reflect. Don't ever take your health and well-being for granted. Always be thankful for your body and its abilities. Give your teacher a hard time when she tries to demonstrate aerial skills with an injury.
