#CircusEveryDamnDay I hate this hashtag, y’all. Because it usually gets interpreted, by aerialists, as “aerials every damn day.” And that’s a bad idea. (Most of the info here was shamelessly stolen from Jen Crane, aka @cirque_physio on Instagram. She’s a PT who also trains handstands and straps, so she Gets It, and you should absolutely be following her. The rest of it is from Emily […]
Have you ever considered becoming an instructor? I’ll be honest: I didn’t! I’d been training for a little over a year when Acoatzin was actually the one to plant the seed in my brain by telling me I should consider taking an upcoming lyra teacher training that Monarca was hosting… and the rest is pretty much history!

NOTE: As of Jan 1, 2022, Monarca in Flight requires proof of COVID vaccination for ALL students for ALL classes. Mask usage is optional.
For the first five years of our existence, it seemed Monarca in Flight was Acoatzin Torres, and Acoatzin Torres was Monarca in Flight. Yes, lots of others contributed to make us what we are, but at our core was one person and his vision. And now we look to the future without him to guide, push, scold, encourage, or inspire us.
