Laura Pence

Owner and Co-founder, Aerialogy

Fifteen years of power yoga were the perfect prelude to aerials for Laura, who eagerly launched her strength and flexibility off of the yoga mat and into the air in 2012. Since then she has rarely touched the ground, training, teaching, and performing every chance she gets.

Laura has been sharing the thrill of flying with students of all levels and ages since 2014 and builds her classes around progressions and conditioning. One of her passions is synthesizing vinyasa flow power yoga and silks into a seamless, high-intensity workout. Another is thin crust pizza.
