I am Lydian DeVere Yard, Lyra instructor, Liquid Motion Instructor and Pole Dance Artist
How She Got Started:
I crashed and burned after producing a passion project for theater and put on 30 lbs. I wanted a new exercise to get excited about to take off the extra weight. Pole sounded like fun!
Let me count the ways Pole has affected my life: Fitness, Friendships, and Fun! Challenges and confidence. I feel so strong, and am so proud of how far I’ve come. I know what it is to be filled with self-doubt, but with the support of all my aerial sisters (and bros) I know I can do it
To give others an opportunity to grow into themselves; through struggle and perseverance, I am doing things I never imagined I could do. I want to bring that sense of accomplishment to other people.I want to unlock potential! I love to see students accomplishing things they didn’t know they could do.

Start with where you are and what you’ve got right now. We’re all students. I’m going to learn from you as much as you learn from me, and we’ll have a lot of fun on the way!
IRL (In Real Life):
My background and education is in Musical Theater, and I am pursuing a professional career. I met my husband of 14 years in New York City doing theater and we have two amazing daughters. I’m from Ohio originally.
Eventually, I would like to be a Theater Teaching Artist
