Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.

Working on my bridge in preparation for beginning contortion lessons this fall…ahh!  Not a lot of progress made on the bendy front since the spring, but definitely developing more stability in my shoulders and improving my lines.  Really excited to get some coaching soon, since most of my flexibility practice has been self-study.

facts

- I was supposed to be in Turkey again right now for IM Festival, but in an unfortunate turn of events, the grant supporting travel for our American and Albanian festival participants got retracted by the EU. I was notified of this about four days before my scheduled departure. Uh oh!

- I am back in the States and staying with my family. America is still a sad and scary place. My mother thought it was a good idea to take me to a Costco near Idaho to shake off the culture shock. Costco!! What even IS Costco?!

- Oh hey, I’m going to circus school in Vermont in two weeks (residency, not Pro-track, for those of you who speak NECCA). I plan to focus on my trapeze number, as well as building technical skills in rope and hand balancing, but am starting out with more general work because I am kind of lumpy and a little blobby from traveling. My group classes include contortion, a modern dance class for circus artists, and a tumbling clinic to do things over and over and over with a coach. I’m getting an aerial fitness assessment/lesson with one of the owners of the school before I even go through orientation (ahh, terrifying!), and am required to take at least one private lesson a month in addition to my residency self-study studio times and open gym sessions. It’s a whole lot of training, and if I find a job and am able to stay a while, it’s going to be workworkwork on evenings and weekends. But to be able to keep training…!
