Really Gifted

“Some people are really gifted at being flexible and some people are really gifted at being not flexible. I belong to the second group.” Had so much fun in Lyra class today!(: Was taught by a student from the advanced class (I think?) and she was super friendly and helpful. Apart from trying out new…

Stubborn af

If you haven’t read what I posted this morning, you can read it here. Opened this new phase of life with Crossfit 16.2 this morning. My first WOD, ever, and I did it scaled but it was pretty good. Didn’t make it past the first round because the time cap is just insane, but I…

Why Do We Fall?

  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of…

I am a bad student (part. 2)

As lovely as this title is, I need to stop having to write posts like this. I dropped my partner today. Well, semi-dropped. It was probably less than 10cm from the ground, but she fell back a little and I manage to catch her. I was trying to lift her from her hips but somehow…

I am a bad student

ūüė¶ Worked on transitions of the moves we’ve learnt on Lyra today. Plus points are that I have really learnt a lot of poses as compared to when I first started this. And I’m having lots of fun doing so. Minus points are that I’m still not strong or flexible enough to do some transitions…

Hamster 02 (or the actual 01)

If you have read¬†this, you would know that I started my Hamster series about a week plus back. And then, WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION!!!! X.X Anyway, I’m back and even more determined to work hard after a ton of internet articles and thinking. Here is what I did today! Sorry if I sound a little high….

Maddening, joyous bliss

I’m currently in recovery from my wisdom teeth extraction, hence the lack of updates, but I do have a lot of stuff to share. I couldn’t get a particular post out in time for today because it’s incomplete. Nevertheless,¬†I wanted to share this quote with all of you today, the 29th of February 2016 because…

floating?

Had a fun Lyra class today, revised previous stuff and learnt back balance which is pretty cool. Also managed to take my hands off the Lyra for the first back balance pose (yay!) and finally hock’s hang with no hands either (double yay!) My classmate (pauses to note that there are only 3 people in…

Hamster 01

Welcome to the third week of February. I’ve finally decided to stick to a program, one that has far enough goals for me to reach, and enough cool things to keep me interested. You can find it here:¬†http://antranik.org/bodyweight-training/ I’ve been mucking around on my training a lot, and so I shall officially deem today as…

Ballet Lifts

Happy to finally return to dance class today, and in the new studio no less(: Worked on recital and graded stuff today. I missed last week’s practice, but I managed to learn most of what was covered through the video that was sent. Going to performing two lifts (arabesque and hip) in the recital piece…

Finally back

Finally back to Lyra classes after a 2 week break. Missed out on so, so much. Luckily, I was able to catch up today. Did the hocks hang (assisted), man in the moon, amazon, half angel and full angel (I think), some¬†upside down split (don’t know the name) and another upside down split (don’t know…

I’m starting, actually have just done Day 1,…
