Practice Journal!

Practice Journal, Days 1 and 2
  • Basic stretch routine
  • 15 regular crunches
  • 30 alternating-knee crunches
  • 10 push-ups
Yesterday I worked on hooping, staff, and long-string flow wand.  I can almost shimmy the hoop up and down my body both clockwise and counter-clockwise now, and I practiced a few more jumps in and out of the hoop.  We are hoping to have the fire hoop made my Friday, so that I can debut it at the KCRF Media Party.  I worked a bit with contact staff, focusing on fishtails, which I have decently in reverse with my right hand, but not so much with my left.  Forwards is for another day!  I am really loving the long-string flow wand, though I do still get tangled up in it more than I would like.  The mechanics of the long-string flow wand are completely different than any other tool I've learned, so it is exciting but challenging. I do have a video of one of my progress so far with the long-string flow wand up on youtube

Today is a sewing day.  I am working on another reversible vest for Rhythmic Flames.  Hopefully I will have it done in a few hours and can put up pictures!
