I'm sharing one of my favorite festive-looking shapes that I call the Ornament Pose. The zig-zag of the silk reminds me of a magical figurine that could hang nicely on a Christmas tree.
Place a foot lock on, circle the silk around your body, pull into a split and bam, it creates this!
Well, there are a few more steps than that but it's relativity simple to get into.
See the video & step-by-step breakdown below.
Step 1: Begin with a foot lock on one silk.
Step 2: Pass the free silk to the same side as your locked foot.
Step 3: Reach same hand as locked foot up high on the pole. Use your opposite hand to pull the free silk behind the pole and across your lap.
Step 4: Continue to pull until there's a couple of feet (half meter) of slack.
Step 5: Toss the silk behind you so it circles completely around (this may take a few tries!).
Step 6: Allow the loop to intersect and cross in front of the pole.
Step 7: Crochet your same hand as locked foot up high on the silk that's looped around you.
Step 8: Grab your heel and pull outward into a split (or bend your knee and extend your arm out for a non-split option).
Step 9: To exit, release your foot and turn back toward the silk, I cross my leg over for a nice moment, then stand and unwind the silk around you.
There you have it! Give it a try and tag me on the 'gram @aerialphysique & #iloveap.
