I maintain an active Instagram account and post almost every day. I share my passions which include roue Cyr, travelling rings, rolling zig, yoga, acroyoga, and other types of partner acrobatics. I spend my time in and around the Venice Beach and Santa Monica Original Muscle Beach areas and around the world in my travels. If you like what you see please follow me on Instagram. People apparently like what I share as I have [scp code=”instagram”] followers on my Instagram account. Which is crazy!

Below see a list of some of my recent sharings.

  • Tetraskelion Spent a week assisting @lux_seattleacro in his TT. Managed to fit this in before he left town. Love this guy. You should take his classes if you can. Great teacher! #acrolove #acro #balance #beast #trust #patience #strength #beastmode #westsideacro #deepmonkeystyle #acroyoga #tetraskelion #OMB
  • Lotus Flows Working on lotus flows as often as possible. It's a safe reasonable alternative to the acroshibari stuff which has gotten so popular lately. Try it out. You might love what you discover. This one here is with the lovely @emplays #acroyoga #acro #strength #balance #trust #yoga #yogateacher #fitness #fitfam #socalyogis #socalyoga #westsideacro #whereiacro #acrorevolution #deepmonkeystyle #deepening
  • Lucidity Throwback Throwback to Lucidity and the zig rolling with Ahni. Good times! #circus #deepmonkeystyle #rolling #kinetic #sculpture #lucidity

  • Standing on the Hip Bone @orkah balances on my hip bone. I have been exploring this space for over a year with several different partners. Today was the first time I took the mounting foot away. This starts as a side star. Or is using his toe to dig into my psoas while the ball of his foot is resting on my iliac crest. It's really an amazing feeling. When we hit it correctly it feels like an amazing psoas massage. It's very intense the way a good massage is but not too intense. If we are off by any amount at all we either can't hold the pose or I am in tremendous pain. But there is one spot where everything can be balanced and the fun begins. I first began exploring this with @eveinmotion several months ago and have learned more and more about it every time I explore it. Next our wonderful spotter @korandkarma will no longer be in the picture. Then one of my hand supports will go away and it will become a two point of contact pose. Wonder if it can become a simple toe point? Can a ballet dancer balance perfectly on the iliac crest? Can anyone? What a trip. I can't believe I geek out on such stuff. What a crazy life I have created for myself. Today was such a great day! So much love! #deepmonkeystyle #omb #brachiator #pose #balletdancer #westsideacro #yoga #yogateacher #acro #acrolove #acroyoga
  • Yoga Nidrasana Foot to hand with Erica @erica___claire Amazing what can be done with strength, communication, & trust. #foottohand #balance #strength #trust #patience #deepmonkeystyle #westsideacro #acroyoga #acro #muchlove #prettyflyer
  • Bird of Paradise Bird of Paradise with @orkah. Yet another bound pose as part of my exploration of intimacy and communication with my partners. #acro #acrolove #acroyoga #acromillion #playla #strength #balance #yoga #yogateacher #socalyogis #socalyoga
  • Reverse Hollow Back on Hands A year ago today I shared this pic of @moderntarzan Nicholas doing a beautiful reverse hollow back on hands with me. Since then Nicholas has become a worldwide phenomenon of awesome. He deserves it. Truly a sweet guy. His ideas about movement are to me some of the most interesting out there in a field of fascinating movers. I'm proud as can be of all he's accomplished and will in the future. And as you can see from the photo here I'd like to think I supported him along the way. #gratitude #socalyoga #socalyogis #movement #yoga #balance #trust #strength #beast #power #acro #acrolove #acroyoga #pose #hollowbackhandstand #hollowback #handstand#whereiacro #calisthenics #power

  • Flying Kurmasana Look! @erica___claire is so comfortable she's fallen asleep. Use a spot. This stuff is dangerous. #prettyflyer #acro #acroyoga #westsideacro #deepmonkeystyle #patience #trust #strength #balance
