“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi
Lindsi Kay lives in the upside down world.
You can find her anywhere except with her feet on the ground.
A self proclaimed inversion junkie, Lindsi is a gifted teacher and circus performing artist of yoga, hoop, partner acrobatics, aerials and dance.
She does it all, on a person, in the air, from a chair, anywhere!
It takes a passionate, outspoken and energetic person to accomplish all that she does. Lucky for her, she's overflowing with those qualities, and she won't apologize for it either. Why should she?
Hailing from Bend, Oregon, Lindsi's entrepreneurial spirit keeps her busy operating her own business and several blogs. She is a certified Hatha yoga teacher, and the co-founder of Slackrobats, an energetic community of extreme yogis and slackline ninjas. You can find her hosting delicious yoga retreats around the Pacific Northwest and abroad. She also loves to see small businesses thrive and helps connect her community through her blogs Slackrobats and Best Gluten Free Beers. She's a busy lady!

Sasha Galitzki is mesmerizing.
When she performs the world stands still.
The lights dim and the build-up of alluring music changes the mood in the room. As the spotlight finds her the world freezes, transfixed by the golden goddess who moves with grace and charm. As her performance unfolds, revealing the incredible strength and absolute poise of this talented woman, you can't help but wonder how someone comes to be so captivating.
Maybe she's born with it.
Actually, she was, but it's not what you think. Sasha was born with an insatiable curiosity, a gift that has allowed her to keep moving forward, to explore her passions to the furthest, to acquire knowledge in abundance and partake in endless adventures.
Sometimes you learn something about someone that surprises you. In Sasha's case there are so many surprises if a jack-in-the-box went off right now we wouldn't even flinch.
Let's start with the stuff you already know. She's a talented lyra performer, so it should come as no surprise that she is equally gifted on aerial silks, trapeze and pole. She learned her craft training with some of the top acrobats around the world, including attending a 3 week circus school in Helsinki, Finland. She gives back by teaching and coaching aerial and partner acrobatics and was the founder of Whistler Acro.
Literally dropping bombs, Sasha was a professional ski patroller for 7 years and has been skiing since she was 1 1/2 years old. Firing the Howitzer for avalanche control being her favorite part of the job. What is a Howitzer? It's a cannon. That's right, she's fired cannons for a living.
Since there's a big gap between skiing and aerials let's start to fill in that space. She's also a certified white water canoeist, a former competitive swimmer and water polo player. She can also hold her own rock climbing, mountain biking, sailing and kayaking.
She possesses a dual bachelors in Economics and International Relations and is currently going after a master degree. We don't think she'll have any troubles obtaining it, while most people struggle to speak a second language, this lady can speak 5.
That last fact is slightly less surprising, though no less impressive, when you learn that she has travelled to 51 countries and lived in the USA, Germany, Argentina, Chile, Tasmania, Bulgaria and currently Canada (also briefly in El Salvador, Spain, and Finland).
What do we love the most about Sasha? That despite her impressive resume, she is incredibly down to earth.
Her favorite downtime activities are baking cookies and cuddling with her Doberman.

Erin Monahan tells it like it should be.
What would you say if you were less afraid to say it?
As the founder of the ecofeminist magazine Terra Incognita, Erin Monahan knows what she stands for and has a way with words that makes us gobble up every word she puts to press. She reminds us of the saying "if not me, who? and if not now, when?"
She inspires us to stand up and speak out, to say what needs to be said.
Given her talent with words and our lack of it, we're going to let her tell you about her publication and mission in her own words...
Terra Incognita Media raises tough questions about our existence on this planet, catapults difficult conversations about the unknown, and stimulates action towards the benefit of our environment. We're breaking barriers and pushing the envelope. We stand behind those who revel in fighting consumerism, the patriarchy, and "societal norms," because our climbing world is not exempt from these obstacles and they must be addressed.We believe in Negative Capability: the ability to linger in the mystery - to revel in it. John Keats who coined the phrase describes it as "when a [hu]man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason." Terra Incognita explores many outcomes, many meanings, discards closure, welcomes possibility, and finds resolve in the ambiguity of existence."
