Amanda Ritchie

Amanda began performing at three years old.  By the age of seven she starred in a local South Florida children’s show, KidZone.  Her passion for performing blossomed and before she attended high school she was offered the opportunity to study with the Joffrey Ballet School on scholarship. During her academic schooling, Amanda worked full time performing with the Ft. Lauderale Ballet Classique.  But after graduation, her desire to travel the world led her to run away with the circus as a headlining aerialist/dancer with shows such as: Dezire, Cirque on Ice and Four Spirit of the Elements.  In 2009 until May 2015 she made the bright lights of Vegas her home performing with Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity and Michael Jackson ONE. You can find Amanda teaching Lyra & Silks at the studio!

Amber Porter

Amber is a Los Angeles based dancer and aerialist with over 15 years of professional performing experience.  After taking her first dance class at the age of 2 she knew body movement would be her life.  She received extensive classical ballet and modern dance training at the University of Louisville School of Music, dancing in their pre professional program.  In 2003, Amber moved to LA and fell in love with aerial performing.  Seeing this flight based art form as another extension of her dance background, she sought coaching from Judith Flex of Luminario Ballet and Aloysia Gavre of Cirque du Soleil.

Amber found her yoga practice while seeking ways to heal her body after a performance injury.  Experiencing the healing properties of yoga first hand, she wanted to share this type of healing with others.  Looking to bridge the gap with all her movement styles Amber began teaching aerial yoga, completing an aerial yoga certification with Levity Aerial Yoga and the Yoga Alliance. You can catch her at the studio teaching Aerial Hammock, Lyra & Aerial Yoga.

Diana Nguyen

Diana Nguyen walked into her first yoga class in 2003 with tennis shoes on and no expectations. By the time she rose from that first savasana, she knew she had touched something she never wanted to let go of, and embarked upon making yoga a lifelong practice and personal duty. Though initially delighted by reaching milestone #1--touching her toes--Diana soon discovered that the benefits of a yoga practice reached far beyond the physical, and considers yogic philosophy to be the lasso of her life. Though her heart beats on Pacific Coast time, Diana completed her 200-hr teacher training in New York with Master yogi Sri Dharma Mittra, and continues to teach and practice with the guidance of his mantra: "Be receptive." You can find Diana teaching Maha Yoga at the studio!
