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
Sara Kaiser founded Wakeful Ascent Aerial Arts to share her love for aerial silks with the communities of the Eastern Sierra, a place that has become a powerful source of inspiration and healing. Sara has been training aerial silks since 2014. From scouting spots on the coastline of Santa Cruz to performing live with the Golden Gate String Quartet and designing unique choreography, 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 Aerial Arts strives to nurture a long-lasting love for aerial arts, connect students with themselves and one another across body, heart, and mind, build community through inclusivity, 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.
