Acrobatic workouts are bigger than ever — and for good reason

Acrobatic workouts are still fairly new to the mainstream fitness landscape. One of their most popular iterations is AcroYoga, a blend of acrobatics and yoga founded by Jenny Sauer-Klein and Jason Nemer in 2003. The workout has since exploded in popularity, with celebrities like Lena Dunham, Ashley Judd and Gisele Bündchen gleefully taking part. The physical benefits are huge.

Morning Motivation or My Ballet Nightmare

I’ve been having trouble with sleeping too much lately (I have even managed to sleep through entire days). I tried to wake up at my normal time yesterday and overslept, didn’t work out or work period.

For those who don’t know me, I have been dancing my whole life (though I do not dance for career anymore), modeling, teaching yoga, martial arts and am also a contortionist. So not working out really hurts my mood, body and job.

I dreamed last night I was to be performing in a ballet. I was backstage all dressed up in my costume on opening night… and I had no clue what the ballet was or what I was supposed to be doing. I found the program and to my horror found out I was the principle dancer. I didn’t know the choreography and started warming up anyway but kept falling all over myself and my shoes didn’t fit.

Needless to say I woke up early and immediately worked out! :)

This morning work out! Swimming 😄

Found these handy cards on the side of the pool. I’ve started with the 10 laps card. Loved it so much. I’m getting so much stronger. My breast stroke is becoming more of a glide. Back stroke I just need better core strength but my front crawl need so much work😥 I can not managed 2 laps.

Also my confidence is growing so much. I can not belive I’ve wasted so much years hating myself. Swimming is something I now do to escape from foolishness.

I’m never going back to self doubt and self pity.

Here’s to loving my self ❤
