One arms ❤️❤️❤️ One of my favorite parts of this moment was a family of hikers who excitedly asked if they could be my audience. “Yes. Absolutely” *************************************************** photography by @maronoff *************************************************** #contortion #contortionist #mysticpixies #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #inspiration #teamwork #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast

Big Apple Circus was a joy with these humans. Here is @jeffrystilt and I throwing croc up in front of the popcorn stand bc we couldn’t help it. Second photo is with Gio from @duo_fusion, the partner acrobats in the show, who were amazing. Virginia is such a strong woman and based her husband, Gio, for half their routine!!! Gio was amazing too 😜 ************************************************ #bigapplecircus #strongwomen #circuseverydamnday #acro #cirquegram #acrobatics #flexible #circus #croc #partneracro #bettertogether #fit #fitness #fitnessmotivation #hanstand #newyork #fitnessjourney #fitspo #fitspiration #fitspo

You can go far with a great team. I saw this move from The Mystic Pixies a while ago and thought it would be out of my reach. I saved it as inspiration none the less... then yesterday: with @ariana.contortion basing it with me and @khazu89 flying, it became possible. ************************************************ #contortion #contortionist #mysticpixies #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #inspiration #teamwork #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast

New skill! @felicityflexile calls this zombie. Are there other names for it? I tried it a few times and thought it was impossible for me to get it... but with tips from @khazu89, inspiration + demonstration from @ariana.contortion and support from everyone who showed up today in class, I made it around. ************************************************ #contortion #contortionist #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #circuswharehouse #dancer #gymnast #zombie #cheststand

When you do what you love, you have far more energy. We kept on saying “one more!” even after such a long day. This was actually one of the last shots of the day even after @georgia.bryan had multiple other contortion photoshoots that day and she flew in on a red-eye to New York. Your energy is amazing @georgia.bryan! ❤️ ************************************************ Also after this photoshoot ended, I heard Renee turn to her friend and say, hey do you want to do a photoshoot right now?

goaryn. @maronoff (the photographer here!) is classically trained as a softwar

@maronoff (the photographer here!) is classically trained as a software developer but has always impressed me with his aesthetic eye. When I taught photography in Israel I would give the students a rule of thumb: when you take a photo, capture a perspective that the normal human experience doesn’t usually get to see. Don’t just stand and hold the camera at eye-level, but capture a new perspective by crouching low and looking up, find angles and exaggerate them, let a color and texture feel endless by filling the frame, exaggerate foreground from the background to create depth... in this photo series Matt pulled all these new ways of seeing the world and more. This is, (in-part) why I feel like a better designer when we design together. ************************************************ #contortion #contortionist #contortionpushup #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast

Feeling grateful to have spent this weekend with Josh’s family. His niece is 1 years old now, we celebrated his moms Birthday, and we got all the Decker boys + the ladies together for the first time in years. Also @joshdecks is getting so much better at hand-to-hand and can push to extended smoothy when L-basing. He told me 6 months ago that he would get stronger so we could do exactly this, and he went out and did it. ✨❤️

goaryn. Accepting fall. :) I’ve been feeling like I want to be in seven places

Accepting fall. :) I’ve been feeling like I want to be in seven places at once. Wanting to connected deeper with these humans all around, discover new ways to move, create more experiences that impact more lives, share my love in meaningful ways and wanting it to still be summer. I’ve been wondering if my expectations are just increasing as my capacity widens because I’ve always felt this at a similar rate no matter how much I do. Its likely this drive to do/create/connect more is a key motivator for me with positive results despite the unsettled feelings. Still, I’m working on ways to keep this motivation and find the essence and calm of the present moment. “There’s no time like the present” as inscribed by my mom on the clock in the room I grew up in. I’m curious how each of you feel most present. ************************************************ This photo taken by @maronoff on our fall photoshoot yesterday ************************************************ #contortion #contortionist #contortionpushup #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast

Many of you know, that in addition to contortion I also build apps with my friend @maronoff. A year ago we wondered how we could use augmented reality to magnify anyone’s creative expression. Matt and I both love photography and in particular, long exposure light painting. Thus LightSpace App came into the world, quietly at first with just a few downloads and zero marketing budget. Now, because of the creativity and excitement that so many of you have found in LightSpace, it has really taken off. Today we are celebrating 400,000 downloads and are higher in the App Store listings than Amazon Video, YouTube TV, Xbox, and, most impressively, the unicorn color by number game. Check LightSpace out in the App Store and show us what you make!!! (New release coming soon too!) Use #LightSpaceApp so we can see your creations. Also give us feedback because we always love making it better! ************************************************** #lightspace #lightspaceapp #augmentedreality #app #ar #arapp #iphonex #indiedev #ux #design #iphone #ios #logicalanimal #teamwork #swift #nyc #newyork #3d #ar #arkit #lightpainting #drawing #development #dev #tech #newapp #appoftheday #uxdesign #longexposure #photography

I’m grateful for the sunlight shining into the city. I’m grateful it was relatively warm on this fall day. I’m grateful to work regularly with you @jeffrystilt and build our movement language together. I’m grateful to you @sfreneenyc for capturing me so many times when I feel so alive. I’m grateful to explore new movement with you @georgia.bryan. @joshdecks I’m reminded endlessly of how grateful I am of your encouragement to burn brighter. I feel so deeply grateful for my health. And I feel grateful for the muscle soreness after all the acro this weekend as I feel myself becoming stronger. Whatever you feel grateful for, take a moment to breath it in and feel it. Let someone know and share it with yourself. ***************************************** Photo by @reneechoinyc ***************************************** #contortion #contortionist #mongoliancontortion #duocontortion #trioacro #flexible #flexibilitytraining #bridge #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast

My favorite thing in the world is creating movement, shapes and happiness with amazing people. @georgia.bryan, it was wonderful to meet you! Way to be resilient after a long weekend of shooting. @sfreneenyc way to capture this shape and encourage my funny stick figure sketch of an idea (swipe to see it) (Drawn on the subway)🤣. I’m always trying to think of new ideas and thought of this shape and angle when brainstorming with myself how we might use our strengths (and flexibility) together. I think planning pays off bc ten mins after meeting we throw this up! 🙌🏼. Also thanks to Jennifer (Georgia’s mom) and @jeffrystilt for spotting this one. ***************************************** Photo by @sfreneenyc ***************************************** #contortion #contortionist #mongoliancontortion #duocontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #bridge #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast @flexibilityposts_ @flexibilitynation @instaflexibilitypics @circus_my_world @yogachallange @contortiongoals @contortion.post @contortion_post @cirquedusoleil @cirquegram @flexibility.planet @flexible__people

The three stages of contortion pushups and other shenanigans brought to you by @ts_serchmaa ‘s Sirens. After two years of being apart we had one practice in the same city and we loved it. From @unbikim @towa2mau and I: we love you Serchmaa!!! Thanks for bringing us together in San Francisco so now wherever we are together we feel at home. ***************************************** training @themusebrooklyn ***************************************** #contortion #contortionist #contortionpushup #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast @flexibilityposts_ @flexibilitynation @instaflexibilitypics @circus_my_world @yogachallange @contortiongoals @contortion.post @contortion_post @cirquedusoleil @cirquegram @flexibility.planet @handstandnation @thehandstandnation @the_handstand_gallery @flexible__people

It amazes me how fast I can warm up when there is a camera or eager audience around. @sfreneenyc captured this shot about ten mins into warming up. While the shoot was on a warm day in summer, in practice I may take 30-60 mins to fully warm up. I wonder if adrenaline actually warms your body up, or does it just increase motivation and reduce pain? ********************************************************** Photography by @sfreneenyc ********************************************************** #circuseverydamnday #contortion #contortionist #mongoliancontortion #flexible #flexibilitytraining #flexiblepeople #flexibility #strongwomen #handstand #handstands #handbalance #cirquegram #fitspo #circus #cirqueduinsta #circuseverydamnday #fit #fitness #workoutmotivation #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #yogaphotography #dancephotography #fitnessjourney #dancer #gymnast @flexibilityposts_ @flexibilitynation @instaflexibilitypics @circus_my_world @yogachallange @contortiongoals @contortion.post @contortion_post @cirquedusoleil @cirquegram @flexibility.planet @handstandnation @thehandstandnation @the_handstand_gallery @flexible__people
