Serena aka “Juicy” has dedicated her life to a world of teaching, inspiring women and men to get into their bodies, move from their souls and shine from their hearts! Her passionate nature has led her down many different rivers of creativity, investing her heart in animation/graphic design, circus arts, performance, yoga and healing arts. She is a twice certified Hoop Dance Instructor, certified Danyasa Yoga Instructor ( a fusion of Vinyasa Yoga and Expressive Dance ), certified AcroYoga Instructor and has over 200 hours studying healing arts in Thailand and the U.S.
Her path began in 2001 with a B.A. in Animation/Graphic Design. When a dear friend put a hoop in Serena’s hand in 2005, it was love at first sight! With her own hoop dance company called “Juicy Hoops”, she offers hoop dance classes, workshops and fire hoop performances on the west coast and all over the world.
AcroYoga has taken her passion for play, creativity and flow to all new heights! Her adventurous spirit and love of world travel has brought her offerings to a global level. She is very excited to help grow the AcroYoga community here in Portland and share this magic with as many souls she can touch!
Both her AcroYoga and Hoop Dance classes focus on self-love, tapping into your inner child, taking care of your temple, celebrating your health and existence, and the knowing that you already have everything you need to feel good! She teaches from the heart, and you can feel her love and dedication in her presence. She invites you to let go and come PLAY!!!
