This morning, Erika and Timmy and I headed back to Circus School!

We went the first time a few months ago and it was awesome, so we went back for a second time!

This time the class felt MUCH harder than before. There were more stations and they did some more technical tricks. I was sweating by the end!

The best part is always hanging upside down on the trapeze!

Erika and Timmy were much more coordinated than me!
(Look at that Upside Down Pike!)

Last time I went, I just couldn’t flip upside down on the Ribbons. You have to do this and then jump so you flip over:

And this time…I did it! I flipped!! I just closed my eyes and jumped and I went all the way over. It was so exciting. I squealed out loud!!

I felt like jello at the end. Circus School is quite the workout!

I know it’s every parents nightmare to find out their child is attending circus school. haha But that’s exactly what Erika and I did yesterday!

Flying from a trapeze was on my “things to do before I die” list, so I was WAY excited to try this out!

We took a class at Cirque School LA called Aerial Fitness.

It was down an alleyway in Thai Town in Hollywood, at first we thought we were in the wrong place!IMG_5146

But inside, it was really cool!! We did fun things like hang from trapezes!

Erika did way better than I did.

She was doing this crazy thing and then letting go!

And when it was my turn. I just laughed at the teacher. haha I was a teensy bit too scared for that trick. 😉

But I really liked the high trapeze. This one we got to swing from!

In the end, we were sore and sweaty in such a good way. It was SO much fun. I really want to go back and try those trapeze tricks again. I bet with a little more confidence and practice I can do them!

PS… I woke up today TOTALLY sore. My abs, arms, back and shoulders! Such a great workout!
