Lyra Workshops

with Ariana Papousek

We have a brand new workshop instructor for y’all – Ariana Papousek!

Ariana is a self-taught aerialist who has fused her background of rhythmic gymnastics and traditional circus to create a unique and dynamic style of movement. Her early years as a competitive gymnast instilled an appreciation for proper technique, body awareness, and creativity. As a coach, Ariana strives to inspire confidence, courage, and grace while ensuring that each student feels comfortable and empowered.

While performing, Ariana‘s intention is to make audiences forget the world and fully experience the present moment through captivating aerial acrobatics.

She has performed at many large events like  Suwannee Hulaween (Florida), Envision Festival (Costa Rica), Mayan Heart Festival (Guatemala), Water Woman Festival (Ecuador), Sonic Bloom and Arise Festival (Colorado), and Burning Man (Nevada). She has also worked with a number of big name bands such as Elephant Revival, Shpongle, The String Cheese Incident, and Quixotic.

Both workshops are 90 minutes long, cost $75 to attend, and need a minimum of four signups to make. Sign up for both workshops and get them bundled for just $135! Workshops will not include a full warm-up, so attendees are encouraged to arrive up to 30 minutes early to take themselves through a more thorough activation sequence.
