"Recent research suggests that hypermobile people may have more supple collagen in other parts of the body as well as the joints. This may be linked to a number of other symptoms including mild asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and urinary stress incontinence. Blood pressure may also be lower than normal, so people who are hypermobile may be more prone to fainting."

Hmm, I find this incredibly interesting - as someone who is very hypermobile, and also has mild asthma and IBS, it would be very intriguing if they were actually connected. I’d be quite interested in seeing more research into those links.
Squarial! My dance studio is apparently currently the only studio in the UK with a squarial, so we were the very first to have a lesson on it!
Its very similar to the aerial hoop, except square and it’s covered in fabric rather than tape, so is a little softer but more slippery, and also mainly used for doubles.
It’s also pretty cool in that you can rig it in lots of different ways, including into a cube!—
A few more pics from my studio competition :)—
Good lord I am crap at statistics.
