About wine country aerials
Teaching Philosophy and Approach
Our unique and professional teaching style empowers students to utilize their strengths and overcome their weaknesses for optimum training and continued personal achievement. We embrace each student’s starting point, and enable them to expand their confidence and skill set through strategic coaching, effective workouts and creative performances.
Our dedicated team of instructors strives to connect authentically with each student and maintain a deep sense of belonging inside and outside of class time. Continual inquiry and assessment allow for ongoing improvement of our classes and programs, staying current in the aerial industry and with each other.
In 2011, Hylah Egeland (aka "The Barn Faerie") co-founded the first program in Napa, CA specializing in Aerial Silks. As a lifelong teacher and performance artist, Hylah has educated and entertained students of all ages about movement, nature and community. She has been a gymnast, dancer, basketball player, capoeirista and, for the last eight years, an aerialist.
Hylah thrives on physical movement, loves learning new ways to challenge her body and is passionate about sharing this classic circus art form. When she's not hanging from silks, Hylah can be found in her garden, riding her mustang mare Lacee, dancing to world music or celebrating and enjoying life with her friends and family.
