Our Team

We are a group of committed and passionate artistic athletes here to
help you achieve your physical and creative goals.

Lydia Michelson-Maverick

Studio Owner | Aerial Instructor

Opening Four Elements blended Lydia’s life-long love of dance and her understanding of healing through movement.

With an academic background in psychology she believes movement, dance, yoga, and aerial arts can offer deep change and personal transformation.

She strives to make aerial movement accessable to everyone while encouraging her students to break through their barriers to find strength and beauty inside and out!

Sara Bergmanson

Aerial Instructor

Sara began her exploration of movement at a young age as a competitive gymnast. Her love for gymnastics also gave her a love for dance; these two foundations continue to influence her aerial journey.

Sara started aerial silks two years ago, and one year later, she won her first aerial competition in the amateur silks division at MTPS 2014.

In addition to silks, Sara also enjoys lyra and spends most of her free time on either apparatus. Her other interests “on the ground” include yoga, art, and anything that involves her two dogs!

Sonnie Boyson

Pole Instructor

Sonnie has been teaching various forms of fitness since 2006 – her passion is to show others that fitness can be fun, and that they’re capable of so much more than they think. Towards that goal, over the last few years she has been focusing on teaching and performing in pole, and more recently lyra as well as acro-yoga. She also studies the many ways to take care of your body to ensure you train the right way for the best long term you 🙂 She has won several titles at various pole competitions (solo and doubles), performs when she can, but especially focuses on teaching and sharing what she has learned, and is always expanding her own knowledge to better show others what they’re capable of.

She’s so excited to help you find your fitness outlet, and learn amazing new ways to use your body!

Mr. Lily

Studio Mascot

Two years ago, following a midnight liaison with a wild cottontail, a holland lop bunny gave birth to the sassiest bunny whom we call our studio mascot. Lydia & Mav thought he was originally a girl bunny (hence the name) but surprise surprise!

You can find Mr. Lily hopping around the studio, max relaxing next to people on yoga mats, and convincing strangers to feed him cherries and other snacks.
