This last session in pole was hard!! I was not there very often but still managed to learn a few great new tricks!
We also got a new instructor. I adore my old instructor, M. I count her as one of my dear friends, and she is crazy awesome. Our new instructor has a different way of explaining things, and while I still feel painfully awkward around her, I think this can be a great journey. K is amazing and I can't wait to learn from her.
I have a solid cartwheel, a solid twisted grip lift, and last night I got my first ever aerial shoulder mount and my first ever Marion Amber.
Its odd, I had never really tried the Marion Amber before at the studio. I just decided to go for it, it looked challenging and fun so I figured I'd give it a go. I did and I got it. This 'getting' it has not happened for a while. I have had to work on and troubleshoot trick after trick for a while, which is a great lesson in perseverance.
That said, I will not be throwing a Marion Amber or an aerial shoulder mount into my freestyle anytime soon, I still need to work them and get super comfortable with them. But I can do them and that feels awesome.
