Are you a Dancer?

Why do I instantly want to hug anyone who says they are or were a dancer? Because I think they have probably experienced at least some of the following.. -Suppressing the pain of being told they are not good enough over and over -Comments about their body needing to be different -Feeling like they constantlyContinue reading “Are you a Dancer?”

Training from pleasure or pressure

How are you training and treating your body. Is it coming from pressure or pleasure?  The motive behind what we do is important.  For example 2 people are doing 10 pull ups for conditioning.. Person 1 is doing them because they feel they NEED to, to keep up strength. They are feeling pressure to lookContinue reading “Training from pleasure or pressure”

Relationships with food

There was a point in my life where food was just part of an equation. Calories in – Exercises = Worth (lower the better). It was no longer food, it was a formula. The flavours started to disappear and it became a bit of a ‘will power’ game. I’m pretty competitive so when I discoveredContinue reading “Relationships with food”

My Untangled workshops have also revealed that this tends to be common transitioning from hobbyist to pro. The sudden needContinue reading “Body Image”

Recreational to Professional

One of the questions I get asked the most is ‘how do you become a professional aerialist?’ and I still don’t have a answer. I used to think it revolved around a form of perfection and I ran into a bad spot chasing that tail. For me it’s not about strength, flexibility, body and otherContinue reading “Recreational to Professional”


At the end of my research questionnaire I left a open comment box and I got 235 comments from aerialists about what affects their self-esteem (thanks to everyone who did this🤗). Many people mentioned how comparing themselves to others affected their self-esteem negatively. On social media, in class, in a training space, etc, comparing bodyContinue reading “Comparison”


This one is about procrastination as requested. What I know about procrastination is that it is a form of stress relief and NOT laziness. So, when I am looking at my to-do list and for example it says ‘make invoice’ I’m not stressed about the invoice. I am stressed about something going on in theContinue reading “Procrastination”
