Hi there! I’m Laila. I find passion, peace, and grounding in a diverse movement practice, which balances my daily vocation as a mental health counselor. After many years of dedicated partner acrobatic and rock-climbing practices, I have expanded to aerial over the past two years. It feels important to keep my brain and body learning new patterns, puzzles, and pathways. I have discovered a strange penchant for apparatus that feels miserable and challenging at times, and I find particular excitement in aerial rope. I'm excited about a performance art that steps outside the bounds of what is expected or common, bends norms, and enjoy circus with a purpose.
