May has been a hectic month, to say the least. With the website finally done, my personal training certification complete and over with, and my creative juices flowing with no end in sight, I have been a busy beaver trying to make sh*t happen. There is no other polite way of saying it.
Yes, I do know that aerials have not been talked about much nowadays on the blog. I’m sorry for that. Although I made more time for myself this month, unfortunately it is not so I have more time in the air… although that will change! For the first couple weeks of May, I studied, studied, studied! Not to mention I’ve started a new business that offers a holistic approach to fitness. Personal training sessions and fitness programs will be available through the website and in-person also!! I’m getting the Dancing Temple blog ready so it will offer awesome advice for those looking to get fit on both the inside and out; that means meditation, yoga, Pilates, weight training, customized fitness videos… possibilities are endless
It was not at all fun to put aerials aside. But, I had to wear many hats this month – personal trainer, entrepreneur, web designer! Luckily everything seems to have successfully launched without too much of a hiccup. I was certified officially weeks ago; but I received my certificate in the mail yesterday. I even have a handy card! My website hasn’t exploded… yet. I’m finally talking up Dancing Temple and introducing myself as a personal trainer. Everything seems to be coming together! I started training one of my friends the other day. Also, if you have a blog and want to help me promote the site, then let me know and I’ll get you set up with a free trial membership so you can reap the benefits!
Tonight I booked my first aerial private with Fran Sperling, an awesome aerial coach that I met a few weeks ago. She performed in Alessandra Belloni’s Spider Dance (I’ll write more about this later) and we talked for a while about the aerial/cirque community in Brooklyn and Manhattan, as well as important posture and alignment when it comes to aerial silks. My first time on the silks in over a month will certainly have a “like a virgin” moment! It’s going to be awkward, intimate, uncomfortable; and yet intriguing enough that I’ll want to do it again… and again… and again. And I’ll want to be better at it too! It’s exciting to imagine that special time.
I know that my unique and ambitious endeavor, Dancing Temple, will develop into an extraordinary benefit for anyone in need of accountability, realistic goals, and simple physical fitness that connects the mind, body, and the soul.
I recently updated this website to include more information about personal training. Feel free to read more about what I offer and let me know what you think.
