First, I want to thank all of the (past and present) instructors and students who have taken class with Four Elements. I am deeply honored that each of you have chose to spend an hour, months, and years with us!
I can’t believe that it has been three years since my passion to make aerial experiences accessible. In the beginning I imagined Four Elements as a tranquil and beautiful space to take yoga classes, including aerial yoga. The space offered a wide variety of yoga, with restorative classes, water features and candles as an essential part of my vision. I wanted a space for students to push limits, heal, restore and gain strength, awareness, grace and to dig deep to find things in themselves they didn’t know existed. I believed then and still do believe that aerial arts in some form is accessible to everyone and that aerial yoga is a great place to work through fear, find strength and learn to love yourself (even more).
Somewhere between the first and second year of Four Elements our students began to ask for an expanded program and my instructors were advising me to reimagine Four Elements as an aerial arts studio. I was initially hesitant because I wanted to maintain the tranquil spirit of yoga. However, the universe had other plans: it was serendipitous that at that time many of Austin’s best aerial and pole instructors magically appeared in my life with a love for my studio. With only a little resistance and a lot of love for these amazing ladies I took a risk and added aerial arts classes and poles into my studio home and I have never looked back!
I cannot tell you how amazing it has been to have these amazing instructors in my life and in my studio. They are passionate, beautiful, brave, bold, sassy, inspiring and absolutely the very best in Austin and far beyond! The students that our instructors have attracted are no less amazing and watching all of you (students) grow and become amazing is the very best. I have even had the pleasure of watching a few of you transition from student to instructor and I couldn’t be more proud!
Opening Four Elements has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life and I cannot imagine doing anything else. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in Four Elements past and present. You have no idea what it has meant to me if you were there for a single class or have made us your aerial home. Please come celebrate three years with us!
