Aerial Yoga Certified, Aerial Yoga/Dance Instructor/Performer

Bio:  I found my passion in aerial yoga and dance five years ago.  It was a way for me work out and express my creativity at the same time.  It started off as a hobby and quickly turned into a lifestyle, practicing almost daily.  I graduated from Cleveland State with a degree in a biology and quickly left the science industry to pursue my passion in the aerial arts.  Two years ago I became a certified aerial yoga instructor and have absolutely enjoyed sharing my passion in the aerial arts with other people. When I am not teaching or training I spend all my free time with my family, with three kids I am constantly busy!  We love to be outdoors and spend most weekends camping where I am always looking for the perfect tree to hang my aerial silks from! 

Motto: Life isn't about finding yourself, it’s creating yourself. Happiness is...hanging from silks! 

Why I love teaching aerial yoga: Teaching has become one of the most rewarding aspects of the aerial arts for so many reasons!  I love hearing the success stories from students how aerial yoga has helped ease pain or injuries.  I love seeing the growing confidence individuals gain as they become more centered with themselves, more flexible and more toned.  Most importantly I enjoy sharing my passion with others by helping them express their creativity through the aerial arts. 

Fun Fact: My favorite place to vacation is Disney World,  I try to go once a year. I am an avid painter.  My house is covered in wall murals I have painted in my free time.
