The number one question Im asked by new students? What can I do to get better? I feel like its taking so long! Its a fair question, I mean, who doesnt want to excel at what theyre pouring their hearts and pocketbooks into? But, for many, what theyre really asking is, Why havent I picked this up in ten classes? Um because its difficult, Buttercup! Ask yourself: would you waltz into a ballet class, having no dance training, and expect to be turning triple pirouettes three weeks from Sunday? Of course not. Then why would you assume that you can do that in an aerial class?

Wise Saying From Laura #1 You have to be willing to suck at first. A lot.

Perhaps its our cultures growing appetite for Instant Results , or maybe spill-over from the Club Med make a catch your first day mentality (not knocking Club Med, its just a different animal altogether). Whatever it is, let me be very candid: if you want to get really good at something, whether its aerials or accounting, you have to work your ass off for a good long time. That girl with the beautiful lines? Shes been dancing since she was 4. That guy with the bone-crushing grip? Hes been rock climbing for the past 5 years. Theyve all put in the time, just not in my class.

Wise Saying From Laura #2 Just show up.

I have yet to meet a student who was a truly hopeless case just about anyone in reasonable health can become proficient in an aerial discipline. Ive watched some students throw themselves into classes, train on their own, and fight for every victory they got on the silks. That kind of hard work inevitably pays off. I have one student who couldnt even hold on her first class, and cried in fear the first time she did an ankle hang; shes now performing beautiful pieces in showcases and making me proud. She showed up. She put in the time (several years, to be exact). Shes reaping what shes sown. You will too, Grasshopper.

Wise Saying from Laura #3: Its an awesome adventure, babe. Quit focusing so much on the destination.

Here, in a nutshell, is how to get better, and enjoy the journey.

quit taking yourself so damned seriously, it aint the Peace Corps. A light heart and the ability to laugh at yourself will make training more enjoyable (for both of us). Frustration is a roadblock, laughter is a detour.

be a student. Check your ego at the door, and be willing to be really, really bad at something. Think of it this way you can only get better!

just show up to class, to workouts, to your training time. I strongly recommend at least one class and one practice session on your own each week. Regular workouts can be tailored to support your air time Pilates, deep stretching, weight training (PULL-UPS), and more can make your class time more productive.

dont compare yourself with others (thank you, Miss Stephanie!!!)

CELEBRATE EVERY VICTORY!!! Dont sweep it under the rug, you worked hard for it!

Its not Insta-Aerial, yall! It took me over a year of training almost every day to get to a reasonably professional level on fabrics. You can do it. Heres what I can promise you: show up, do the work, and youll see results. Now, suck it up and get to class! Theres work to be done and fun to be had! And no whining.
