Ioana Nicolae – Aerial Yoga Teacher
Born and raised in Romania, Ioana considers herself an international spirit with an overwhelming curiosity towards foreign cultures and traditions. She has moved to the United Kingdom in 2015 where 3 years later she discovered the magical world of aerial yoga and became a passionate aerialist.
Professionally, she has a legal background with a bachelor degree in Law. An ardent believer in the EU values, Ioana has graduated a Masters L.LM Degree in European Business Law in Sweden. She has started a career in banking in 2016 and since then has been working as a Financial Crime Analyst.
The encounter with Aerial Yoga was a mind opening experience. She immediately knew that somehow this special type of training was going to be an important part of her life. A year later, after joining classes and practicing regularly Ioana has trained to become an aerial yoga teacher. Through aerial yoga she has discovered that art can take many forms and shapes and that one can be an artist in many ways. Hers is through aerial yoga.
In October 2018 Ioana also participated as an aerial dancer in the piece Hope, choreographed by Joanna Puchala, part of the Social Arts Festival, a festival specialised in incorporated slings in performances for purposes of creating awareness towards social inequalities and human rights.
Ioana is looking forward to teaching, improving as an aerial yoga performer and meeting people with whom to share the knowledge and enthusiasm towards this type of sling practice and art.
