When I heard the name of this pose I understood why I loved it so much - it's the Hammock. Just like being in a real hammock it feels very carefree, like you could be dangling your free foot near a stream in the woods. Unlike a hammock it has a really cool exit (how gracefully can you really get out of a hammock??) - from this position you grab the ropes, do a v-up and the bar naturally unwinds and you're in perfect position for a chalice :-)
This was an "in between" pose, I had done a V-up from a Surrender and was going into some fun twisty stuff, but I love a good Chalice position so I figured I'd take advantage of where I was to do one. I love it because it looks like I'm just sitting in there, hands and legs free to do whatever they want!
Momentary poses are always joyful to me, but they aren't always tricks with names. They come from exploring where other tricks may go - I always imagine the moment someone thought "Ooh, what if I did this?" This pose is one of those - no name here, just a progression somebody found out of a French seahorse :)
Today I had a hankering for some rope work, which lead me to this fun pose that I'll call the Peter Pan. This is where trapeze and fabrics meet, it eventually sets up for a cool drop. Another fun day playing in the air at Canopy Studio!
This was my own variation of something fun to do from a Claire Split. I had been playing around with it and managed to slide the rope up my butt and then realized it was a perfect place to lean back and arch. I love these little moments of exploration!
This day I was conquering my fear of heights (which sounds crazy for an aerialist), but I hadn't done much on our higher circus bar so when I twisted out into my Martini my heart was definitely rushing, and it felt awesome to trust myself and sink into the pose.
