About the Facilitator(s)

Shakti Sunfire is a vibrant and passionate teacher of hoop dance and yoga. Now a resident of San Francisco, she draws on her own experiences and her heavy participation in the community to encourage unfettered self-expression centered in the heart. Her message is one of radical self acceptance. She teaches and performs internationally.

Luna Breeze ~ Exotic, energetic, and entertaining, Luna Breeze extends far beyond the acrobatic. As a hoop dancer, her choreography blurs the line between entertainment and performance art - a focus on the magic of illusion and the interaction of hoop and dancer. She is known for her fusion of modern dance, tradition circus skills, and musicality within her dance. As a teacher she is known for her accessibility, goofy sense of humor and serious attitude of positive empowerment through the ring.

The material in any of Luna’s classes has been acquired through personal exploration in yoga, dance and circus arts at accredited studios around the world. She is a firm believer in the power of research, and the simple act of trial, error, experimentation and fearless play.

Luna is currently attending circus school at Pendulum Aerial Circus Arts in Portland Oregon, where she studies aerial silks, trapeze, and acrobatics, while teaching and performing circus hula hoop for the school. Her days are filled with choreography, training for performance, and studying the human body to ensure that her students and she advance efficiently, safely and happily whether performer or hobbyist!

Safire ~ Safire is a world-renowned circus and fire entertainer, skilled in a variety of movement arts, with a range of performance experience and is one of the world’s most known hoop dancers. She has performed in over 12 different countries around the world and has appeared in dozens of television spots, magazines, newspapers, blogs and more.

Safire has been training in the circus arts since 2006 and works full-time as a professional entertainer and fire dance instructor. She continues to develop her skills through regular training sessions, workshops, theatre courses, and by attending conventions around the world.
