Back in Ontario

I am LOVING the warm weather and I'm so happy that I got to experience some of it before fall kicks in.  

I've spent the last two weeks going back and forth between Kingston and Toronto.  In that time I have rediscovered my love of teaching and become even more determined to stretch more, train more, hoop more, etc.  It's been great to see family and friends as well.

My friend Nicole and I did a really fun photo shoot in Toronto with the incredibly talented Jowita B.  You can check out some of the photos here.  The photo above is hers as well.

I also got a chance to perform at the Kingston Summer Cabaret.  What a great group of people and a great show.  I had a lot of fun.  Oh and the audience was amazing!!!  I'm hoping to get a good copy of some video soon and I'll be sure to post it.

My plans from here all still kind of up in the air.  I will be using Kingston and Toronto as a home base for the time being though traveling is far from out of my system.  If you want to know about my classes, workshops and performances, check here.  Right now I've got stuff booked in Kingston, Belleville, Toronto and hopefully Hamilton soon as well.  I haven't had a chance to update it all yet but I will shortly.

I'm off to Toronto for the long weekend.  Acro jams abound!
Have a great Labour Day weekend!

Love to you all,

Canada!

Hey Everyone :)

The Big Chill was great.  Crazy intense 8 days of fun, work and great people.  Massages, performances, playing, rocking out to music, creating an amazing space at The Rubbish Side Show and meeting awesome creative people from all over the world.

I am going back to Ontario for a month, as of Monday.  I am teaching workshops, doing performances and offering massages.  For more info and my schedule, visit Twisted Yoga

I hope to see and play with everyone that I can while I'm back.  Get in touch!

Lots of Love,
Erin

The Big Chill

Unfortunately things didn't work out with the pirate performance but I am doing a solo performance at The Big Chill Festival this week!  We leave Monday morning (Stephen will be on the crew) and will be gone for at least a week.  I will be offline for the duration.  I am losing my mind with excitement and fear.  I'm sure it will be a fantastic experience.  Stephen is losing his mind over the bands and djs in the lineup (Massive Attack and Bonobo are in there!!!).

The last week has been fairly low-key.  Last weekend we went to a free music festival here in Sheffield called TramLines.  It was pretty great.  Tons of people.  We went all over checking out bands and djs.

Today is moving day.  We are staying in a friend's room while he goes away for a month.

I have some other big news but I'm still not sure that it's 100% so I'm hesitant to put it in writing but here goes.  I may be returning to Canada for a few weeks in August.  I want to stop in for a visit before we head to Thailand for the winter.  If I come, I will be teaching workshops, doing at least one performance and available for Thai Yoga massages!  I will post my schedule and more info as soon as I know it.  Oh and I will be back and forth between Kingston, Toronto and possibly Belleville.

I guess that's all for now folks.  Have a great week!

Fire and Fun

I did end up getting quite sick and it's taken me awhile to get over it.  My stomach still feels very sensitive and Sunday was the first day that I could eat anything other than toast.

The weekend was tons of fun despite feeling rough.  Saturday night we went to a 40th birthday party that was a circus festival out in a field.  There were a bunch of really awesome and inspiring performances.  One girl was on the aerial hoop hanging upside down with a hula hoop around her waist!  So cool.  The performances ended with Pete's fire act (which was awesome) and then there was fire play where Stephen got to spin fire for his first time.

Sunday evening we went to see Front Line Assembly at a club downtown.  It's been far too long since I've done something like that.

Yesterday I was at Greentop pretty much the whole day (acrobalance, tumbling, dance and double trapeze).  Every muscle in my body hurts right now and I'm just about to head out and do it all over again.  We're worked on our pirate act today.  Only 11 days left till the show!

I'm hoping to get a new podcast completed this week.  The illness pretty much inhibited any productivity last week.

Have a great day everyone!

Expanding and Sick

I have decided that I would like to expand my blog. Many people are doing amazing things, such as publishing books and producing music. I would like to help promote them and to share these amazing creations with you.

One of the women, Xian, lives in our house and she wrote a book that I am currently reading. She is amazing. An Acroyogi, world traveler, circus performer and she has her own publishing company. I would highly recommend that you check out her book: Why You Don't Need Shoes.

Unfortunately there has been a bug going around the house.  Steph was really sick yesterday and I've been fighting waves of nausea for three days.  I've still managed to train but I'm feeling kind of out of it.

Yesterday Pete and I did more doubles trapeze at Greentop and a yoga practice in the cemetery nearby. 

That's really all of the news for now.

Lovin it

video
The past few days have been great.  Friday I went for a run in a graveyard, it was nice to have some alone time. Later in the day I went to Greentop and trained for a couple of hours and then had a private tumbling lesson where I learned some awesome rolls and cartwheels as well as started working on back flips and continued to work toward front walkovers.  Above is a video of my handstand progress (any feedback, Smok?).  I'm still not holding it for very long but at least I'm sort of hitting the position.

Saturday morning my friend taught me some doubles trapeze stuff!  So much fun and I could see getting totally addicted.  Yesterday afternoon we watched Pirates of the Caribbean to try to get some ideas for our pirate performance and then I took a long nap.  I had planned to go to a festival downtown but didn't make it.

Today Stephen and I recorded another podcast, this one is a gentle/yin yoga practice and it should be available for purchase by tomorrow.

This afternoon I am continuing to work on my book, getting our demo video online (watch it here) so we can apply for that gig in India and relaxing.

That's all for now.

Performance Video

Here is one of the videos from the show that Stephen and I put on in Kingston.  Yay!
