I’m Lindsey Daniels, a Lyra Instructor at Sky High Studios, a full-time art director, and a designer who dabbles in makeup artistry. I have been practicing pole for 3 years and found Lyra in early 2013 while attempting to lose weight and get healthy. I was hooked from the very first class!
By the end of my first year, I had met my weight loss goal, won my first medal in Lyra and found a whole new level of confidence!
I started teaching Lyra in 2015 and have been loving it, as I had struggled when I first entered the apparatus. I also love connecting with students and watching them grow.
I’ve always been a creative person. Always crafting, painting, singing, writing, playing with makeup, and making costumes….aerial arts felt like the next level of embracing my love of all things creative.
I am a creative spirit with a lot to say and weird ways to say it.
How She Got Started:
in 2014 I made a new years resolution to lose a LOT of weight (90lbs) and had come across a Groupon for a local studio. It was not my first time trying pole, but when I called I thought to ask “what’s a Lyra?” and signed up on the call. After my first class, I was hooked, 6 months later was training for my first competition, and 10 months later had dropped all 90lbs and acquired a gold medal and new lease on life.
Aerial fitness became a way for me to express myself and eventually teach me how to connect with fellow students — who would one day be MY students — about health and wellbeing and finding self-confidence through art.
Even if you can’t do the move today, keep moving, keep committed, and keep positive and you will see results in time.
Even if I bomb a performance, or have a bad day, or am feeling tired….I come to class and my students continue to impress me and re-inspire me, remind me that they are all capable of something they were not just a short while ago, and getting to see students connect with freestyle and their own sense of movement brings me to tears.
IRL (In Real Life):
I’m an art director turned visual experience designer. I also enjoy performance makeup and hosting makeup parties.
I’m on the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius.
I began to teach Pole Fitness 4 years ago and since then have been awed at how other women challenge themselves to be better, stronger, different, and more comfortable with themselves.
