  • I tried out @brooklynboulders & OMG rock climbing is a serious workout! My arms & core are still thanking me😜 Their facility is also massive!! They have sooo many different rock walls for all levels, a gym, cardio room, room for fitness classes, infrared sauna, work space (in case a work call comes in) & more! I was V impressed. They’re also a quick subway ride from the city & trust me, it’s easy to kill some time there. 
They’re also having their annual birthday party on Friday 12/7... check my stories for deets!

  • climbing makes me happy, but it also pushes me out of my comfort zone 💪🏼 i’m used to excelling at things right when i try them, that doesn’t happen so much with climbing. you know the saying “your mat is always there for you?” meaning that you can always smoothly transition back into your yoga practice 🙏🏼 not quite the same with climbing.. when i take a break, i’m in for a harsh awakening 😂 but i dig it. find something that actually CHALLENGES your body and makes you uncomfortable. growth lives in that shit ✨ .. side note, if you haven’t seen the @freesolofilm documentary, go watch it right now your mind will be blown 🤯

  • Ain't about how fast I get there. Ain't about what's waiting on the other side. It's the climb. 🏔

  • I am not an expert at this. It was my first time at this V1. Is it a route? These things are called routes, right? Oy vey.

I'm working on:

how to use my limbs in different angles
how to manage the weighted position of my hips
Where the fuck do my feet go?? and

how to notice fearful doubty thoughts like:

I'm not good at this
Everyone is watching/judging me
They must think I'm shitty at climbing
I'm shitty at climbing
Ugh, wtf am I doing?
Why did I spend money to do this?
What's the point?

See that downward spiral of thoughts?

I watched it all go down, down down into a hole.

And boy did it psyche me out a bit.
Just enough to make me go....huh....maybe you need a break.

So I sat down after this, took some breaths, and watched other people climb.

They were doing hard things too. And failing.

They probably didn't know exactly what they were doing either.

Maybe they also had some shit they were working on.

Who knows what they were thinking or how much they failed before they learned how to grip those things that birds can't even perch upon.

I'm going back.

Cuz I'm not going to let my mind win.

My awareness won't let it.
She will notice, acknowledge, and watch it dissolve.

The mind will come back again and again (on repeat)....and the awareness will be there like a high priestess.

  • 1st place in Brooklyn Boulders Spring Crush top rope masters. It took 45 years and a little cunning. My dad sometimes said I lacked the killer instinct. It stung a little. Maybe I still do. Maybe I found it. Maybe it doesn’t matter. I had fun, climbed well and feel proud. Big thanks to @abaker79 for pics, belaying and beta mentoring, plus to @adaptive.matthew for the video and support and his motivational inspiration #brooklynboulders @brooklynboulders #climbingcompetition #masters #springcrush
