Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts
The Eastern Sierra's Premier Studio for Aerial Arts
"I had such a blast, and this is the most body aware I have EVER felt!!!! I can't thank you enough!!!!" -Sophie Smallhouse, Intro to Silks Student
Bishop's first ever Intro to Silks course has concluded! We had such an amazing time over these fun-filled three weeks. I can't wait to see what these students do next! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in enrolling in the next course.
Sara Kaiser founded Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts to share her love for aerial silks with others. Sara has been training aerial silks since 2014. From rigging her equipment wherever she could around Santa Cruz to train, to performing live with the Golden Gate String Quartet, Sara has discovered an endless source of happiness and inspiration in the fabric. She is inexpressibly grateful and excited to bring this beautiful, challenging art and discipline to the Eastern Sierra. Wakeful Ascent courses, lessons, workshops, and performances take place in the Sierra Shanti yoga studio in Bishop, California--the only aerial training space in the Eastern Sierra.
Wakeful Ascent strives to nurture a long-lasting love for aerial arts, connect students with themselves and one another across body, heart, and mind, build community, and encourage self-expression through creative action. We integrate practices of connection and meditation into courses, lessons, and workshops. Aerial silks will mean something different to everybody, and Wakeful Ascent embraces those diverse interpretations.
