Cirque Fit is the only Aerial studio of its kind in the Atlanta area, and the only traveling aerial studio in Georgia! This means that they come to their customers and visit various locations. With the portable A-Frame Swing Stand, Cirque Fit offers private aerial sessions, "Aerial in the Park" classes, workshops, parties, and special events!

We reached out to Jessalyn to learn more about her journey as an aerial instructor and why she is so passionate about this practice.

What inspires you to practice aerial yoga?  My love for all things in the aerial arts world! The benefits both physically and mentally on the body. It’s relaxing and exciting. It stimulates all parts of your body and just makes you feel so good about yourself!

Why did you start in the first place? I just love being in the air. So being able to incorporate it as an exercise and an art is a win-win!

How and why did you become a yoga teacher? After spending time performing on the Lyra and diving into a fun circus arts world I knew a part of me changed forever. But we all know life happens and things change. A some of me still wanted to have a little part of that world close. So I decided to start teaching. Having students and being able to share in their accomplishments is the greatest joy I have ever known!

What do you love about aerial yoga vs regular yoga? FLYING!!! I crave excitement and so does everyone else. Being able to incorporate both aerial and yoga is just the best if both worlds to me  ;)

What is your go-to pose and why? The one legged king pigeon pose. I’m on my feet A LOT. So this feels A-mazing on my back, hips, and shoulders. Plus, being upside down is just the best ;)

What advice would you give to future aerial yoga studio owners or teachers? Just DO IT! The biggest speed bump for me was deciding to open the business and truly commit to it with my whole heart. And now that I decided to, my entire world has changed! The joy I find teaching is unlike any I have ever felt! So go into and have confidence because people are going to LOVE this!
