  • FBF to 6 years ago when I was HELLA preggo and @marshmeloe grabbed her feet for the first time!

I honestly can’t believe 6 years ago I had only recently started focusing on teaching, and was a soon to be parent... I had no idea what was in store for me 😆 At this time I had never left North America, and kind of assumed I would never travel and see the world. Now I’ve been to about 10 countries, and am in the process of moving to Germany 🇩🇪 I can’t believe how much has changed. It’s been a crazy/awesome/fun/challenging/sometimes-really-difficult/meaningful time, and I wouldn’t change it if I could 💛

  • Today I would like to talk about the way you think about stretching. I hear far too many people say stretching "hurts" or "is painful". While I understand the sentiment, it is important to categorize these feelings differently and try to understand them. Are you feeling discomfort because something is challenging you? Or are you feeling pain that you think may lead to injury? While stretching, it should feel like you're stretching the muscles you're intending to stretch. (Doing a pike? You should feel your hamstrings stretching, etc.) It shouldn't just hurt everywhere🙅🏼‍♀️ But slight discomfort? Productive, yet challenging, sensations? Totally fine!

When I teach, I am constantly checking in with the student about where they feel the stretch/exercise, and how it feels. If the word "hurt" is uttered, I immediately stop and ask them to tell me what it feels like. For the most part, that was just the word that popped into their head at the time, and they just feel a very intense stretch/sensation. At that point I ask them to use different words to describe the sensation (not only for themselves, but also so I know that I’m not doing something that may cause damage). The language used during a stretching session is something that’s really important for students and coaches to be aware of. If you constantly talk about something feeing like torture you’re either exaggerating, or doing something terribly wrong. So when you’re stretching, if something genuinely HURTS, that’s most likely your body telling you something is wrong. Use that time to ask yourself, is it just uncomfortable because the stretch is intense, or is it truly painful? 🤔 And if it’s truly painful, rethink your approach or try a new method! Be mindful in your training and your body will thank you! 💛🎉 Have thoughts? Questions? Drop ‘em in the comments! 👇

  • Just over here working on getting comfortable on my hands again... I tried to commit to doing at least a few handstands every day, but that sure didn’t happen 😂 I’ve been consistently doing at least once a week, but also getting back in the habit of exercising consistently, and somehow my handstands are still getting more comfortable again! It’s just crazy cause I used to be able to balance for MINUTES without a problem. So, I’ll be over here very slowly working on getting that endurance back while attempting to change bad habits and keep my promises to myself 😆💯💪

What good habits are you trying to integrate into your life? Let me know in the comments!👇 (Habit changing can suck, so let’s suffer together 🤪)

  • This city has been a wonderful blur of busyness, creative endeavor and some hard lessons learned. Work-Life balance is certainly created not magically stumbled upon. Looking forward to 3 months in Vancouver and  whatever that brings !! #cirqueway #Calgary #makiage #Luzia #cirquedusoleil #hashtags

  • I made an art!!! Did a collab piece with @hanaisiharaphoto! She took the awesome floating shot of me. Then of course had to get all sparkle magic girl with the edit. I kinda feel like I’m being abducted by sparkle aliens. What do you al think??? <3 .

  • ✨Hoy hace un año hacinamos el último show de “Sep7imo Día, No Descansaré”  @sodacirque7d @cirquedusoleil en el Luna Park. 
Un show que siempre voy a llevar en mi ♥️. Fué mágico desde la creación hasta el cierre. 🙂Fué muy lindo formar parte de este show y además tuvimos la mejor audiencia todas las noches. Más de 5mil personas por noche disfrutando, contentos y saltando con la música de Soda Stereo. Verlo y vivirlos desde el escenario no tenía precio. ✨Fueron casi dos años de viajar trabajando con amigos y además todo el equipo de trabajo fue increíble. 
Aprendimos un montón y además pudimos conocer lugares muy lindos y crecer en lo profesional y en lo personal un montón! 🙏🏻Gracias a todos los que formaron parte de esta genialidad. Gracias totales.😍 La Femme Solaire 😂🌸. _______________________________________________________ #sep7imodia #sodacirque #cirquedusoleil #sodastereo #lunapark #cirqueway #femmesolaire #septimodia

  • Roughly one month until I can skate again. I originally thought I’d be back for our Mexico tour but my knee had other plans 😅. #patience

  • Take your practice seriously but have fun with the results of your labor, find challenges that not only test your body but your creativity and your mental focus.
.
Many respects for the Giants that laid the path before us all, so here’s a huge shout out to @jcvd for inspiring this playful moment.
.
And of course to @empower_move_ment for his patients and camera work and @acrofroggy for having a steady foot on the gas 😂
