tied up in silk

My last few hours in Toronto this week were spent joining the circus. My wonderful friend Sylvia invited me to join her at the Flying Arts Collective. I have known a few folks who were into silk aerial work (such as Lis, the source of my worms!) but had never tried it myself.

The wonderful instructor, Stephanie, walked me through a great warm up and then got me going on the basics.

After basic climbing skills we got into foot locks.

And eventually I managed an inverted butterfly move. But I was too exhausted to repeat the move for the photoshoot so instead here is a photo of my butt half inverted.

That was Wednesday. I am still hurtin’.

I think I want to do more of this.
