Erendira also hoped to break her husband's record of hanging by his teeth at 200 feet.
The 36-year-old mother of three spent about eight minutes of her 10-minute stunt hovering over the falls. "I just feel blessed". The Wallendas are scheduled to go on a 2 ½-month tour with the Big Apple Circus in October, Nik Wallenda said.
"It's good to be back on the ground", Wallenda said at a news conference after landing safely. She said she did not anticipate the wind to make the hoop shake as much as it did.
Holly Withers, also of CT, said she was "a little nervous" watching the performance, "imagining if I was the one to do it".
Nik Wallenda called his wife "a ballerina in the air" during a news conference Thursday detailing the stunt.
She even got the chance to do some acrobatic tricks and hung upside down by her toes.
Niagara Falls once again welcomed a Wallenda performance.
"It must have been such a rush for her to be up there", said Melissa Babiarz, from Buffalo.
The daredevil couple insinuated they could perform a duo stunt together in a few years.
She said her dentist made her a mouth guard that she will wear, but she will use her jaw muscles to avoid falling. She began her act about 8:40 a.m. Erendira was filmed by media outlets from around the globe.

"It was awesome", said Romano.
