The Instructors:

ANYA SHEVELYUK – International Aerial and Contortion Coach.

Aerial hoop, Lyra and contortion retreat in Florida My name is Anya Shevelyuk. Growing up, I was a classical ballet dancer until the age of 19. After retiring from dance I studied yoga in addition to obtaining a degree in Exercises Science with an emphasis in Health and Fitness.

I didn’t start flexibility training until I was 22. My journey was difficult as I was very stiff and weak. I started with moderate leg flexibility but absolutely zero back flexibility and suffered form an old injury to top it off.

I am the stiffest person I have ever met. Even my least flexible students have all started with more flexibility and strength than I had at the beginning. So I believe if I can achieve such great gains in flexibility (even though it was painfully slow) anyone can.

In 2013 I join Voler: Thieves of Flight, an aerial performance ensemble; traveling, performing and teaching acrobatics. In late 2014 I relocated to Vegas to further my career as a performer and coach.

In 2016, I was certified to exclusively teach a newly invented contortion technique founded by Otgo Waller, under the Flexible Body Art training program. This is when I turned my main focus to educating others in their personal flexibility training.

After several years of extensive flexibility experience, I have created my own unique flexibility program combining the art of contortion, gymnastics, Pilates, scientific physiology, strength training and yoga to help others achieve their flexibility safely and effectively.
