Emily Ginem
RYT 200 & Aerialist


Emily began practicing yoga in 2015 for the physical benefits. Her practice expanded over the years and became a spiritual practice that helped her turn inward and quiet her mind. Teaching yoga and planning classes has been a creative & rewarding outlet for her. 


Emily was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. She moved to Columbus, Ohio in 2017 where she completed her 200 HR Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, and she just returned back to Florida in December 2021. Yoga has been an important part of her healing journey as it allows her to use movement to work through emotions. She’s ready to continue sharing her passion with others and is so excited to branch out into learning & teaching aerial arts. 


In her classes, you will explore what feels good in your body, turn inward and release stored emotions through movement and breath.

Amber Young
RYT 200 & Aerialist


Amber loved being active her whole life and wanted to know how the body moves and works but also  struggled with health issues and fatigue. Exercise became an outlet to improve her health and strength.  She tried hot yoga in 2009, falling in love with the heat, the physical aspect, and the emotional release. 

After having two girls 19 months apart, Amber was consumed by motherhood and struggled to get  through each day. Remembering her love of yoga, she started again. Yoga helped her identify as  someone other than a mom, improving her mental and physical life. She then was diagnosed with  multiple autoimmune disorders and chronic Lyme Disease. Again, yoga was there to keep her body and  mind strong, while releasing the stress and emotions of chronic illnesses. She decided to further her  practice by becoming an instructor, graduating Yoga Centric’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in April  2021. 

In addition to mat class, Amber tried an aerial yoga class in 2017 and again immediately fell in love. It  was the perfect complement to mat practice. In September 2020, she graduated Aerial Teacher Training  through AerialKim Aerial Yoga. She then began advancing her skills in October 2020, through aerial sling  classes at Ascend Flow Arts and started teaching aerial privates in April 2021. 

Amber’s passion is to share her journey and knowledge, so she may help people find their own healing paths, both on and off the mat or in the air if they choose to fly!

Monique Cruz
RYT 200 & Aerialist


Monique’s initial attraction to yoga was through the asanas for physical fitness & strength. As she began to fall in love with yoga & the way her body began to feel, her heart began to soften & open. Through meditation & practice of yogic principles, her mind began to become calm, still, & present. When she discovered the fusion of this beautiful practice with the use of the aerial hammock, she was instantly hooked! As she already loved to fly as a silk’s aerialist.


The combination of weightlessness & the ability to release & access muscles she could not ordinarily access on the mat was completely empowering & enlightening. She knew that she had to share this feeling. She had to share "the bliss of the release" with anyone who showed even the slightest interest in aerial yoga. She became certified in aerial yoga in March of 2021 at Atomic Lotus in Pinellas Park, Florida. Monique is completing her 200 RYT from the Lotus Pond in Tampa, Florida in December of 2021.


She looks forward to flying with you & sharing "the bliss of release". Namaste
