Currently an engineer in the Bay Area, Rissa spends almost all of her free time training pole, lyra, straps, hammock, and contortion. She teaches flexibility classes online and in-person at Revel Room Studios and is also a NASM-CPT. Rissa started training her flexibility in 2018 shortly after a back injury to regain her back strength. In May 2019 she began training with Bendy Anya in her Kintortion program and within a few months she was teaching active flexibility classes to practice teaching. When the pandemic hit in 2020, Rissa continued practicing Kintortion and doubled her contortion training when she began training with Serchmaa Byamba. In the next few years, she hopes to teach full-time. Besides contortion, Rissa enjoys head-banging at metalcore concerts, playing with her friend's Pekingnese, and eating ice cream.

Vanessa has been a physical therapist since 2006 and has a love of human movement and a passion for exploring and refining movement so it is accessible to everyone.  She began her journey into the world of aerial/circus arts in 2014 and instantly fell in love with the art form and the ways the human body could move and flow. Throughout the years, she has explored aerial silks, lyra, static and dance trapeze, sling/hammock, and Spanish web. Along the way, she reached a plateau with her own mobility and found The Kintortion Method and BendyAnya to help her out. She began working with Anya in 2019 and became instantly impressed with this new art form and way of moving. In January 2021, she had the opportunity to begin Level 1 Kintortion Teacher Training. Since finishing training, Vanessa is hoping to bring a fusion of physical therapy, aerial, and contortion to beginners and professionals alike. She loves being able to bring movement to its actual foundations and build from a solid foundation to prepare the body for the unique skills and tricks the body needs to perform in a safe and fun way. She enjoys the challenge of working with all people and helping them find their body’s personal foundation necessary to successfully perform basic to dynamic movements safely and efficiently. The key is to make to movement look smooth and effortless, knowing it is anything but, through proper muscle engagement and activation which comes with an inner strength and stability. Vanessa also comes from a background of 12 years of dance, an initial career as a Special Education Teacher, a Pilates instructor since 2016, weekly private yoga sessions, and continues to take private contortion classes for herself.
