Stretching it out with @life_is_a_beaut between barre and center.
Sometimes I loose perspective of my achievements. When I got back into ballet 5 years ago I was so far from any flexibility, that I was actually not believing I could ever get any of my splits. These days I sometimes get so wound up in thoughts like I’m not at 180 yet, my hip flexor is still so tight, my knees won’t stretch enough... bla bla bla! 🙄 Scrolling back through my account makes me notice and appreciate the progress I made again. So whatever goal you set yourself to reach, never give up on them! But also never forget where you came from and honor the shit out of that!! ✨💪🏻🤗 Happy #stretchsaturday ! 😘💕💗

Should I try to film some ballet workouts? What do you wanna see? (e.g. warm-up, strength exercises, stretching exercises,...) Photo: @martinroesl_fotografie

Feet Friday #27 ! Here I am thinking hard about turning off my Achilles and getting control over my toes in my hyperextension. There’s so much to think about! You can see quite a bit of toe progress in the videos. The last photo is the short foot exercise — I like it a lot for arches. 🖤
✨ Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ✨ I kinda wish I had thought to swap my socks for ballet shoes before snapping this photo, but oh well, who doesn't love a bit of cozy sock ballet, right?! I also need to put away those Christmas lights... #procrastination I started to write a bluebird update here, but it became terribly long, and then I closed Instagram by mistake and lost it. So I'm wondering if a blog would work better for longer updates. Ah well. Happy Friday! #BecomingBluebird#AdultBallerinaGang 💙🐦
