Years in industry: 4
Years teaching: 2
I’m really excited to see the aerial world open up for Whangarei, and that I can be part of it. My training has been mostly in Silks, but also Aerial Hoop, Aerial Chair, Aerial Straps and Aerial Net. I entered the aerial world just over 4 years ago, where I finally found an exercise form that gave me pure joy instead of felt like a chore. I never want to stop playing and making shapes in the air, but my muscles tell me otherwise.
I believe the aerial arts is a place where we can feel empowered and supported by one another. Everyone finds different moves or concepts hard, and we get to learn so much more about what our bodies can do, what they are uniquely good at. As we help each other figure out how to achieve our goals, we celebrate strength, ability and overcoming fears. It’s not about a bikini body here, it’s about… “Woah you just got yourself up! Freaking awesome job abs! Well done!” It’s hard, but you get to fly! So come and play.
Outside of my love for aerials, I love exploring the Whangarei’s walks and beaches and hanging out with my husband and puppy. My life mostly consists of drinking coffee and designing websites from home.
