I found this place after I was introduced to Acro Yoga at another studio but had the same instructor at both places. Scott is an excellent instructor who makes learning Acro Yoga fun and obtainable. He does a good job of starting with the basics and then accommodating more experienced users by giving challenges and building on the level of difficulty. He monitors, assists, and gives attention to everyone in the class. He makes everyone feel welcome and is very helpful with his recommendation and suggestions of other courses. As a single mom of a child, it is hard to find places to go with my child. When I mentioned the issue, I was encouraged to bring my child to class. Not only did I have a blast, but my son did too. He said that it was WAY cooler than he expected and that is pretty high praise from a 9 year old. I also have really enjoyed how he has partnered and co-taught with other instructors. Hearing how both the “flyer” and the “base” work through and do their part is very helpful for me when I am getting into the positions for the first time. I look forward to exploring more classes at this studio.
Laura began her aerial training in 2015 and at a studio in Southern California, where she focused primarily on sling and silks. She then transferred to learning skills on lyra and most recently on trapeze after relocating to Phoenix, Arizona and joining the crew here at Vertical Fix. She is also currently a doctoral student at the Hugh Downs School of Communication in Arizona State University.
Laura has been teaching aerial since 2016, where she taught youth and adults at Urban Aerial Fitness and McCoy Rigby Arts in California. She looks forward to continuing to grow as an aerialist and is excited to share her passion of aerial arts with her students.
