As aerial artists, it's important to pay special attention to preparation when it comes to returning to our craft after time off.
You may have already been using this unplanned downtime to get grounded and more focused on your life, your goals, and your next move.
Spring is the perfect time to prioritize. And in our current era, the practice of getting clear can mean more now than ever.
Taking an extended break from your aerial training schedule can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, it means much-needed rest and recuperation. On the other hand, we might lose some strength and flexibility. To successfully return to the air, make sure you are primed and prepared both physically and mentally.
Here are a few quick tips for reintroducing yourself to your aerial passion:
It may be tempting to jump back into aerial practice full force, but make sure you are physically prepared to avoid injury. That way, we can return to our love of the air safely.
For many aerialists and aerial yogis, an outdoor setup is ideal for the practice. It’s true that a portable rig makes aerial arts accessible in virtually any location. It can open doors to opportunities and offer rigging solutions to that familiar dilemma: where to find space to work.
What better way to celebrate these values than to fly free out in the open air?
