Bio

Sarah Patrinellis is a multifaceted aerialist instructor, performer, and yoga teacher hailing from a serene river town in Northern California. After earning a B.A. in Psychology and embarking on travels across Europe, she found her way to Hawaii in 2015, settling in Captain Cook. Here, she immersed herself in the local community, working with social programs while dedicating her free time to fervent aerial silks training and hosting Airbnb guests.

Driven by a passion for movement education, Sarah pursued her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in the Anusara tradition, infusing her aerial classes with the same intuitive and heart-centered approach. Recognizing the transformative power of movement and community, she began running wellness retreats from her jungle home in 2016, aiming to facilitate profound shifts and connections among participants.

Before discovering aerial arts, Sarah thrived in adventurous pursuits like rock climbing, snowboarding, and hiking. Her affinity for heights naturally led her to fall in love with aerial silks in 2013, sparking a journey that would eventually lead her to Portland in 2019. There, she enrolled in A-WOL Dance's FlyCo program, expanding her skills in dance trapeze, sling, lyra, partner acro, and contemporary dance. Sarah currently teaches at multiple studios in the Portland Metro area, including Echo Theater, where she lends her expertise to the social circus outreach program.

Dedicated to her ongoing growth and exploration, Sarah is inspired to continue training on sling, straps, and her newest apparatus, the aerial cube. Her self-care routine includes restorative yoga, plenty of baths, and the company of her feline companions.

In the realm of performance, Sarah has graced stages ranging from corporate events to Burning Man Festival, private parties to intimate weddings. Looking ahead, she envisions creating a traveling summer show tailored to specific industries along the West Coast, while remaining committed to her roles as an artist, explorer, instructor, and advocate for the vibrant aerial community.
