Seriously, y’all. Taking @yogadetour’s Detour Method Online was the best decision I could have made.
.
It is both one of the most validating and educational courses I’ve taken in a while. I sometimes have to pause the video and marvel because Cecily will cue almost verbatim something I tell my classes. This is not to toot my own horn (okay maybe a little 🎺), but moreso to say how glad I am to have had the education I’ve had. I am eternally thankful to @elizabethbrownpilates for starting me on this journey of teaching movement. She taught me so much that shaped my perspective on what our bodies can do. I took what she gave me and ran with it. I’ve obsessively studied programs like Flow Movement, Animal Flow, FRC, and Kinstretch from afar, gleaning as much as I can from a 20-something’s budget and incorporating what I can into classes.
.
I am the only person who teaches the way I do at work. I’m different. I’m unusual. I have people crawl around and make weird shapes and have entire classes for the core with 0 crunches. It isn’t for everyone. But my goodness, delving into the Detour and finding likeminded professionals has reinvigorated me and reminded me that I am doing what I truly love- helping people move better and live better. Thank you.

#mondaybumday because this shoulder stretch is so pretty and feels so nice in my thoracic spine. And it’s a cute pic. I can’t help myself 🤷‍♀️😉

This wasn’t my best form, but it was the best picture. So I’m using it 😅😅
.
I realized I never really introduced myself here. So I wanted to drop some quick facts about me, so we can get to know each other better!
.
1️⃣ I’m 26 and live in the Atlanta area...and I don’t plan on changing that soon!
.
2️⃣ I’m currently getting my MPH in Public Health, but my BS is in Exercise Science. I love figuring out ways to move our bodies that feel good and make us happy. I’ve taught everything from yoga to Pilates to hula hoop fitness to HIIT to spin to barre to...you get the idea 😂
.
3️⃣ I started hooping in 2011. I had zero dance background when I found hoopdance. I always wanted to dance, but it wasn’t something I felt like I could do until I found the hoop. That was a big turning point to give me the confidence to get in touch with my body and express myself through movement and music.
.
4️⃣ My stage name, Spindrift, came at random through a online mermaid name generator. There’s zero meaning or actual thought put into it. I did like that it had the word spin in it, so I kept it. 🤷‍♀️
.
5️⃣ Random items I love - boots, goofy socks, sock monkeys, garden gnomes, doughnut anything, horror movies, and learning about cults!
.
What about you? Drop a fun fact in the comments below. Let’s get to know each other better!

Spending the night with my family, but I snuck in some quality time with @hartlinehair. I feel red-y for the holidays with this new color! ❤️🎄❤️

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! 🥂👏
.
This has been a super busy week, and I’ve been soaking in a lot of awesome information. But this busy bee is taking the weekend off! No schoolwork due, no work/classes/performances/lessons. Just some much needed ttrpg time and good friends tonight, with family visit tomorrow.
.
I’ve been meditating on a few different ideas for posts either here or fleshed out over on HoopDorks.com. I’m excited to write my thoughts out and share them with you. But first, I’m leaving work and grabbing some booze for tonight! 🍻
.
Do you have big plans, or no plans, this weekend? Either way, let me know your fave beverage (alcoholic or not) in the comment below. I want some new ideas! 😁😁

Playing with concepts today, and I came up with this fun looping sequence for tomorrow’s class. It’s definitely going to be our grand finale! 💥💪
.
All the spinal segmentation and articulation things I’ve been studying for @yogadetour has me really noticing where my spine is more mobile and less mobile...but that’s what erasers, dowels, and walls are for. 😉 I love how we can never know everything about our bodies. Our experiences within our bodies change daily, and it’s really is a beautiful journey of discovery. Now, back to getting that spine to move fluidly 🌊🌊

#mondayfeels got me like...
.
Goofy picture aside, it’s a new week, and I can’t wait for new adventures! This weekend was filled with friendship and love, and I’m all charged up for November (for once).
.
November is generally my least favorite month. It usually slogs by with chilly days that only grow shorter and zap my energy (I swear I photosynthesize bc I literally run on sunshine ☀️). But this year is different. Today is day of of @yogadetour’s Detour Method Online! I can’t wait to dive in later today and become a human sponge, much like how I look in this pic. 😂
.
No matter what your Monday holds, I hope you are ready to tackle it and learn as much as you can from it! 👊💥

When your Saturday is surprisingly open, what do you do? Take intro to Lyra with @dreamgirlslyra, of course!
.
I’ve been meaning to check out @polelateaz for literally years now, but today I finally walked in the door! Lyra was a fun apparatus to interpret, and one that I’ve always felt like I should try. It’s like I like circular things or something... ⭕️🤷‍♀️
.
Seriously, though. I’m picky with what studios I patron. I am a stickler for customer service because 1- I am suuuuper shy, and I need to be welcomed into a place to feel good about being there, and 2- I have worked in the fitness industry for years. I am taking mental notes whether or not the staff know it. And this studio was THE most welcoming environment I’ve found. They’ve impressed me, and I plan to show my support. Thank you for such a lovely experience. ❤️

I’ve barely had a chance to play Red Dead 2, but I’ve already lost money playing poker, run into a tree at a dead gallop and gone flying, accidentally killed a guy too close to camp, and run away from a bear. Overall, it’s everything I hoped for.
.
Tbh I might have teared up a bit when you first see John. 😩😩 my heart couldn’t take it. But Lenny is my current favorite character. Have you played? What’s your favorite thing to do so far? 🤠🐴

When a hoop you made is more well-traveled than you are 😂😂
.
I knew there was something special about this hoop when I made it. It just felt “right,” and quickly became one of my favorites. @a_schmuck immediately felt that magic when she first saw it, too. I would say this hoop perfectly complements her green fairy look for this year’s Hulaween, don’t you? 🧚‍♀️❤️
