HOW THE FLY SQUAD GOT STARTED...
Jodi was introduced to aerial arts as a little girl watching circus after circus. It wasn't until she was on a yoga & hooping retreat she got her hands on an aerial hammock. Something extraordinary happened in that moment. Years of exploration on the hammock, she went on to take many aerial trainings. Noticing there was something missing, Jodi saw the need to create Fly & Release Aerial Yoga Training. Without a doubt, yoga was the catalyst to aerial arts finding her.
