As An Instructor, It's My Job to Never Stop Learning

A pack of camels in the Thursday afternoon 3:30 Teen Aerial Yoga. Not pictured: the 10,000 flips we are recovering from. I have a few adventuresome spirits in this class.

Wow! What a wonderful first week of classes! Thanks to everyone who came out and attended.

One of the most amazing moments experienced this week was my Thursday 5 pm class. I had people of varying ages, experience levels, and strength all swinging in the aerial vines doing different levels of the same exercise.

It was a bit magical being able to modify to the individual's ability so everyone got something out of the class. As a movement and fitness instructor, I've been working at this skill for years (a skill I learned from my dance teacher mother, Pagan Mosher) and I still have a lot to learn. It's a difficult task to keep everyone involved, but it is worth it in order to have every student walking out like they accomplished something.

It is all-too-common in the fitness community to teach to a particular level and ostracizing the beginner from what could be a fun class. Of course it is only natural to feel a bit out of place the first time you try something new, it's the job of your fitness instructor to give you the material you need to succeed, but you have to show up first. Thanks to everyone who showed up. I hope I gave you what you needed to start on your journey.

I look forward to seeing the next round of people walk through the doors of Kudzu next week. If you are worried you might not have what it takes, I'm here to answer your questions.

My job is to help you get to where you want to go with your life. We are all completely different human beings with completely different body types. Our spirits want to fly in all different directions. Let me know which way you want to fly.
