Our Story

Why we fly

Jennifer Wang comes from NYC where she first fell in love with aerials.  Aerial arts was life changing for her and she really wanted to share her passion with the world. Jennifer was training at the top aerial studio in NYC, Body and Pole, as well as training with the amazing Laura Haley, owner of Aerial Haven in NYC, before moving to Washington State.  Her passion soon translated to teaching, receiving her certification in Lyra through CirqFit and Aerial Yoga Hammock certification at Om Factory in NYC. Jennifer's approach to aerials is using her Biology degree and physics to focus on proper muscle building, engagement,form, and body movement.  Jennifer moved to WA from NYC at the end of 2020 hoping to continue spreading her love for aerial arts with the opening of her studio, Akasha Aerial Arts, in Washington state. She hopes to bring out the same passion for aerial arts in all her students. Her all inclusive attitude has landed her studio on the list for body positive gyms in the area.  Her school has also been referred by doctors for after post surgery strengthening and recovery in a fun, and safe environment. Jennifer truly believes and consistently showcases that aerial arts is for every one, every shape, and every body.
