Lei Lei is the founder of Levity® Aerial Yoga.
Lei Lei de Kirby draws on a lifetime of experience in dance. She earned her Bachelors of Arts in Dance and Choreography from San Francisco State University. She has trained with luminaries in the circus arts—with whom she has studied a variety of apparatuses: from rope-and harness to fabric, trapeze, cloud swing, and aerial hammock. Lei Lei is a professional aerialist, performing nationally and internationally.
Lei Leis work as an aerialist draws on a diverse background in movement. Not only is her approach a direct extension of her 20 plus years in dance, but she has also been a practitioner of yoga for over 10 years. She earned her yoga teacher’s certification through Yoga Alliance after completing a rigorous program with Yoga Tree in San Francisco.
Yoga’s marriage of physicality and spirituality is part of who Lei Lei is as an athlete and a person. Recognizing the need for injury prevention and self-care in the aerial arts, Lei Lei completed advance studies in Restorative Yoga, Somatic practices, and meditation. Lei Lei infuses aerial with yoga’s sophisticated understanding of body alignment and its coordination of breath and movement.
The Levity® method harnesses the power of the ultimate yoga prop—the aerial hammock. Levity® offers students the opportunity to defy gravity while becoming more connected to the Earth. It can make advanced yoga poses accessible to beginners and the most basic poses a challenging exploration for advanced practitioners.
