Bats aren’t the only things hanging upside down this month! For October we have lowered the price of our Aerial Yoga classes! Now through the end of the month a drop-in class will be $12, a five class pack is $55 and a ten pack is $100! That’s a savings of up to $30! Put that in your candy bag!

There is a fifth dimension…

… beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.

~ Rod Sterling (Producer, Host and Writer, for The Twilight Zone, 1924-1975)

Saturday, May 28th was opening night for the Red Light Variety Show of The Twilight Zone.  It is a must see for anyone into the movement arts.  It is tons of fun.  The performers not only were skilled, but were obviously having a blast.  This energy swept over the audience and drew us in.  Tickets are only $10 in advance or $12 at the door.  It is held at the Visual Arts Collective, which is just minutes of downtown with tons of parking.  Three more showings in June, don’t miss it!

Duct Tape and Snow Shoes

How did I start my year of fun? Making a duct tape version of myself and going snow shoeing with my hubby. Some of you may not see the fun of either, but I have to say it was a good weekend.

Duct Tape Dance

I have been trying to find the time to make a duct tape bust of myself for some time. The idea is that once it is cut off my body, taped back together and stuffed with newspaper, I will have a cheap and handy form for altering clothing. So far it is working, but making it wasn’t as fun as it looks or sounds. Believe me it can get a little claustrophobic in there!

Stu in the Snow

As for snow shoeing, I woke up in a terrible mood and didn’t think I would have any fun in the snow, but went anyway. Guess what, it was more fun than it sounded and by the time we headed back to the car my mood was definitely in an up swing. Just reminds me that you can never tell what you will enjoy the most until you actually get out there and experience it. Till next time, keep having fun!

How We Where & Things To Come

The transition from one year to the next is pregnant with possibilities. It is my favorite holiday of all. A time for gratitude for what has been and excitement for the future. I love making a new year’s resolution each year. Oh yes, I have made silly or unrealistic resolutions in the past, but with each passing year came a fresh try.

 

I am happy to say my skill for making resolutions has improved. Resolutions or commitments to oneself can be powerful tools. Last year I pledged to try to approach life ‘without fear’. Of course there where days I fretted and worried, but as a whole I believe I succeeded. I dove in head first and made decisions with gusto. It was liberating and empowering. It felt so good and rendered such positive results, that I wondered why I had waited so long to try such an exercise.

With confidence on my side, accomplishments came with greater ease. It was like I finally got out of my own way. Authenticity of self was an unexpected side effect.

This year I have decided to have more FUN. It may not sound like a resolution at all, but I think it may be one of my most challenging so far. How do I plan to do this? Below are a few of the ideas I have, but I would love to hear your suggestions. Or maybe share some of the ideas you would use to infuse more fun and enjoyment into your life.

  1. Begin playing around with aerial dance and aerial yoga.
  2. After BSU graduation take a ‘walk about’.
  3. Wear more of my handmade and altered clothing.
  4. Take weekends off just to play (not get caught up on housework!)
  5. Spend more time outdoors.
  6. Continue to try to be fearless!

I thought I would share this with you in hopes that my love for resolutions would be contagious. Throw out anxiety about picking the perfect resolution. This is one thing that really is all about you. There are no rules. Just look into your heart and go for it, if it doesn’t work out just pick a new one. Who will know unless you broadcast it across the internet.

Happy New Year!
