Valkyrie has taught me that EVERY body-type is capable of something. I wrote off sports/athletics a long time ago and it wasn’t until I tried so many different things in Valkyrie that I discovered I was naturally gifted at certain activities. VERY empowering.
I also love how Valkyrie’s instructional process includes “Don’t tell the students the thing they’re being taught to do is arguably impossible until AFTER they attempt it”. It helps make it seem like even the smallest progress is huge in comparison (e.g., I got 1/2 an inch off the ground when statistically speaking I shouldn’t have even gotten off the ground).
