About Tori

Creator of  Mariposa Aerial Yoga 

Bachelor of Science from The University of Florida

Hi I'm Tori! 

Yoga is my life, and I can't imagine where I would be with out it. I discovered the practice in 2008 as cross training for a demanding dance schedule. Eventually the dancing lead to some unhealthy behaviors in body and mind, and I traded my pointe shoes for yoga blocks. In 2015 I began the journey of teaching yoga. In that short amount of time I've travelled around the world taking yoga trainings and learning as much as I can. 

Around the same time I discovered aerial arts and the circus! Naturally I became fascinated with combining yoga and my aerial passions. In 2015 I took my first Aerial Yoga training and in 2016 I began teaching. I cannot get enough of flying. 

In 2017 I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology. Unsure what to do next I headed to the beaches of St. Augustine. That is where I founded Mariposa Aerial Yoga LLC. It had been a lifelong dream of mine to have my own yoga company and to live near the beach. My newest dream is getting into Physical Therapy school to continue learning more about movement and the body.
