Our Story

We met six years ago on top of a 100m high skyscraper in Vancouver, BC, while researching Vertical Dance. This unique experience sparked a lasting friendship and collaboration. Since then, we've faced significant injuries that led us to Pilates teacher training, discovering its power for healing and strengthening.

Our global journey has seen us teach and learn in diverse communities, combining the grace of aerial arts with the precision of Pilates. We aim to inspire and empower others, fostering a deep body-mind connection.

As we grow in the wellness industry, our love for aerial and heights remains central. Join us in Umbria for a transformative retreat. Adventure awaits!
