Yan has been practicing aerial silks since 2012 and started teaching in 2016. She’s absolutely in love with flying and playing in the air. Aside from her aerial shenanigans, she is also trained in martial arts and yoga. Additionally, she is often smitten by science-y things.
Lillian discovered the world of aerial arts in 2014 and has been hooked ever since. She joined the Love/Aerial team in 2017 and is always excited to share her love of flying with others eager to find their wings. Lillian comes to Love/Aerial with a background in ballet and a love for the performing arts. When not playing on the silks, Lillian can be found wearing her medical and graduate student hats, but if the whole “MD-PhD” thing doesn’t work out, she’s running away to join the circus.
