“As an athlete I’ve maintained a certain amount of body control through ballet and contemporary dance practice. Although I danced my whole life, adding the element of the air and gravity gave me a confidence in my own strength that cannot be tested on the ground. After a few attempts at a trick, after you get past the voice in your head that says you can’t do it and the strangeness that comes with being in control of your body for the first time In a while! Your mind and body start to remember what it feels like to play and to experiment with the beautiful physique that you’ve been blessed with and it becomes addicting! Once I realized what I could do in the air, I couldn’t find anything in this world that compares to being suspended and totally in control, looking sexy and strong and feeling internally satisfied at the progress you make every time you get on the Lyra.
As a teacher, one of my most rewarding moments during class is when I’m working with a woman who keeps telling me she ‘can’t’ do something. We work together and with coaching, encouragement and body awareness, in a matter of one class, I am able to get this woman to the goal she said she’d never be able to make and she is smiling from ear to ear, the confidence oozing from her eyes and her body is fierce and sexy. That is my favorite moment in class. Nothing beats the sweet site of perseverance and success. Let me help you reach your fullest potential of self-confidence!”
