Aerial arts have always interested me, and I've wanted to try a class for a while. Aerialists are so graceful and seem so effortless -- but at the same time, I know they require tremendous strength!
I was nervous but excited when I arrived for my first class. I was worried that I wouldn't be strong enough, or that everyone else would be spinning circles around me. Instead, I floated and flew and even though I'm still learning, I had a spectacular time!
I also take hot yoga classes a few times a week, so I thought I might not be too sore -- I was wrong. I was sore for 4 days after my first class, mainly in my upper body, shoulders, and abs. I wasn't nearly as sore the second time, though, so I hope I continue to get stronger.

I'm signed up for a membership now, so I will keep you all updated on my aerial adventures from time to time. I really, really love it, so if you have ever wanted to try it out, you totally should! I'm hoping to try out aerial yoga, aerial hoop (lyra), and a couple of the other offerings soon.
