Jordan discovered a love for teaching in 2004, and has dedicated herself to it ever since. Since receiving her first yoga teacher certification through Holy Cow Yoga, she has amassed over 5,000 hours of teaching time and over 10,000 hours of learning and training time. This dedication set the foundation for her aerial and acro training which began in earnest in 2005.
In 2005 Jordan and Clayton discovered acroyoga, which led to aerial yoga, which led to the higher flying aerial arts. In 2009 Jordan was part of the very first group of teachers in the world to receive her Unnata® Aerial Yoga teacher certification through Michelle Dortignac, founder of the technique, and she has been teaching ever since. In that time a rich community of aerial yoga teachers has grown around the US and the world, and Jordan is thrilled to be one of the first.
Jordan has logged several thousand hours of training in the higher flying aerial arts, with her main focus being aerial silks and sling. She seeks out pioneers in the field, and has been especially influenced by her training with The New England Center for Circus Arts. She has trained regionally and internationally, seeking out anyone who inspires her with a unique approach to aerial or to the body in general. She loves teaching and is inspired by all of her students and teachers.
An introvert at heart, Jordan began performing to challenge herself in a new way and found a love for it that was surprising. She has been performing acro and aerial locally and regionally since 2008, when it was still an unknown art-form in the lowcountry. She performs regularly and has performed to crowds as small as a few dozen and as large as a few thousand. She has collaborated with local talents like Carnivalesque, Alternacirque, Theatre Marvelosa, and more. Her tireless work in this area has laid the groundwork for a rich circus scene that is just beginning to develop in Charleston. Constantly striving for innovation in the field, she is a performer with Wonderson Duo, specializing in solo and duo work on aerial silks, static trapeze, floor, and invented apparatus.
