I started and adults gymnastics class tonight, I want to get better at handstands to help with my Pole Dancing classes.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised, we did roly polys, cartwheels, handstands, the bridge.  We had a long stretch at the beginning too which was great as I really need to work on my back flexibility plus I am determined to get into the splits sober.  I can do the splits when I have had few glasses of wine or when I am pumping with adrenalin, so that means my body can actually stretch that far, but when I am sober I am just not quite there – so it is a goal of mine this year.  The girls Ellen and Jess that were running the class were really lovely and helpful too, so I didn’t feel too much like a clumsy elephant – all in all I am very pleased with my progress in class and will definitely be going back next week!  I’ll get some pics soon too and post them on here for you to be able to see!!
