Macey McDowell

Macey started her aerial journey in 2019, wanting to try something new that would challenge her body and mind, so she and her best friend took their first pole class. That turned into her diving into the aerialist community, trying out all of the apparatuses and falling in love with the whole world of it.

Aerial Trick: Any smooth aerial flow that I can record and make a cute IG reel or TikTok of (haha)

Hobbies: I’m a part time fashion photographer and I own an online vintage clothing store! I like to say this is my hobby and not work, but it’s definitely both.

Aerial was always something I loved to watch, and I was in awe of people on social media on silks and other aerial apparatuses. I actually tried multiple times to pick up aerial, but didn't find something that stuck until about three years ago when I took an aerial hammock class with some expiring ClassPass credits. I loved that the instructor met me where I was and found a good balance between making the class challenging and attainable.

 

I also have a background in teaching power yoga and in acro yoga. My goal in my classes is for my students to feel successful, but also to find something in each class to work on or improve.
