Apply now for The Conclave

3 months of custom programming with feedback for seasoned aerialists & pole dancers who want faster & safer results than you get from a cookie-cutter program

Is The Conclave Right For You Right Now?

I’m looking for a group of driven aerialists and pole dancers who want to spend the next 3 months hitting their mobility, strength, and technical stride. Is that you?

Do you:

  • want to spend your limited time on the drills that will have the most impact on your success, instead of doing a bunch of random exercises from cookie-cutter programs?
  • want to look at your training strategically and realistically, instead of trying to fit a bunch of disparate off-the-shelf programs into your busy life?
  • feel pretty self-directed but appreciate having measures of accountability and feedback built into your practice, instead of struggling to do it all on your own?
  • know that the devil is in the details and are ready to dive into them to finally end the cycle of chronic injuries?
  • have the time, the access to training space, and the mental and emotional capacity to devote to aerial training from September through November 2022?

The Conclave is not for beginners. If you are an experienced aerialist ready for this physical and emotional journey, I would love to read your application.

Why Choose The Conclave?

I've been coaching circus now for over a decade. It's my passion. But I also grew up in a gym. As I progressed as an aerialist, there seemed to be little connection between the systematic, evidence-based practice that I was used to and the way that many aerial artists trained.

It's not that those aerialists and coaches had it all wrong. In many ways, training for skill acquisition tops just training for a heavier deadlift. But as research dollars have skipped over circus, traditions have also trumped science. And artists have faced stagnation and injury.

Do you want to train like a 10-year-old rhythmic gymnast or some Russian straps guy from Instagram?


Do you want to train best for YOUR body and discover the most badass version of yourself?

That means getting real about your strengths and weaknesses; discovering your mobility, strength, and motor learning deficits; and using targeted drills to address your specific challenges. You're not being plugged into a magic formula. There is no magic formula. You, your needs, and your goals shape your experience in The Conclave. And that experience yields mad results.

Your goals aren't going to crush themselves.

What Do You Get In The Conclave?

The Conclave is a 3-month, customized, online training program for experienced aerialists. It includes:

  • help assessing your personal values and aerial goals to better fit training into your busy life without compromising who you are outside of the studio
  • an in-depth evaluation of your mobility, strength, and technical strengths and weaknesses, so that you are not wasting time on drills not suited for body and its specific needs
  • a 13-week training program built to help you reach your short-term goals AND prepare you for that next level, because you're going places
  • regular form checks on any exercises and drills included in your program so that you are sure you're getting the MOST out of each exercise
  • weekly virtual check-ins to inform real-time program adjustments (because sometimes a drill just isn't working) and to troubleshoot scheduling challenges (covid scares, child-care issues, minor injuries) hiding in the week ahead
  • one 30-minute live 1:1 coaching session with ME to discuss the results of your assessment, what's in your program, and why (who else has been given a program with no clue about the order, the exercise selection, or the program design)
  • weekly live group calls to talk about technique, mindset, or whatever else life throws your way (life will get life-y) and connect with a group of bomb likeminded people going through the same experience and struggles at the same time as you
  • a searchable database of the questions asked in the group coaching calls so that you don't have to listen each week to get the answers you need
  • a private group to share insights, wins, and resources during and after the program (you're going to want to stay in touch with this crew)

3 Months of Fully Custom Programming

Driven by personal goal-setting and a custom evaluation of your mobility, strength, and technical baselines. Adaptable to the realities of your life, no one else's. Delivered on TrueCoach with regular form checks and feedback.

Exact Outcomes Conclavers Experience

Everyone comes into The Conclave with their own specific wishlists for their bodies. (That's kinda the whole point.) Then we work together to turn those wishlists into reality by setting achievable markers grounded in foundational technique.

Yep, your shoulders are going to get more stable and your upper back will open. Your hip mobility will improve. These things will happen if you put in the work, no matter which specific goals you set for yourself, because they are at the foundation of what we do in the air.

Past Conclavers gotten their first straight-arm inversions, releases, elephant presses, pain-free back flags, single coil rolls, cheststands, touchdown in middle splits, and more.

The exact results you can expect from The Conclave depend on your individual goals, but your outcomes will no doubt be increased strength for, mobility for, and understanding of the skills you are going after.

What Is the Cost of The Conclave?

The Conclave is a high touch 1:1 coaching experience, and it has sold out every time I've run it. I've tried to keep the program as affordable as possible. The investment is more affordable than most online coaching programs in the fitness space, which range from $400/mo to upwards of $1000/mo.

While I've done my best to make this as accessible as I can, I also want to encourage you to stay accountable to the program and to continue to show up for yourself. Investing in yourself is but one way of holding yourself accountable.

The investment for The Conclave is $415/mo for 4 months⎻or you can save 10% by paying in full ($1500).

As a self-run and self-funded small business owner, if you can afford to pay in full, I'd really appreciate it. I offer a 10% pay-in-full discount, which is based on actual costs for software, time, and Stripe processing fees to administer payment plans.

I'm happy to discuss payment plans further OR to chat about if this program is right for you. Just send me a quick email at [email protected]
