Here are some great aerial pose ideas for the 12 days!
Day 1: Christmas Star: There are so many star shapes on Lyra, Silks, Acro and Sling. Show us your Christmas star!!
Love this cute star by @rad.aerial
Day 2: Naughty or Nice: Show us a move that tells us whether you have been naughty or nice this year! Hint, Angel, Demon, pretty poses vs scary poses.
Day 3: Candy Cane: Is a move on slings and silks but not on Lyra. Mind you there is a few moves that have the shape of a candy cane. Try one of these!
Day 4: Reindeer: While there is no reindeer pose on Lyra there is on Slings! For those using other apparatuses we have, Gazelle on lyra, silks and slings and Pegasus on slings. To take yours to the next level try and include a drop! Hint for the Lyra fans Gazelle drop would be perfect.
Day 5: Joy to the world: Show us a move or sequence that brings you joy. For me I love dead hang beats. They just feel so fun to me and make me smile! Spread the joy by showing us something you find fun so we can try it too!!
Day 6: Santa baby: Strike a pose in some Christmas cheer clothes or accessories. I have some pretty rad Christmas socks!!
Day 7: Christmas Belle: Show us your prettiest pose
Day 8: Let it snow: I love watching the snow fall show us a Drop or slide your choice.
Day 9: Christmas lights: Those pesky things always get so wrapped up and tangled. Show us a move with a pretty silk wrap or a lyra move showing what might happen if you get stuck in the lights. Think: Neck hang.
Day 10: Santa coming down the chimney: Show us an inverted move that represents Santa coming down the chimney. Hint: Ankle hang, bat or banana man on slings. I’m sure you can think of even more!
Day 11: Around the world in one night: Santa travels around the world in one night delivering gifts. Show us an orbit or a spinning move to resemble Santa going around the globe.
Think: Coin flip –> https://www.instagram.com/p/BnMb4xKhXlk/
