Christina McClellan began her aerial journey with a Beginner’s class at Aero Joe Pilates over two years ago. Christina had recently been diagnosed with arthritis in her lower back. A practitioner of Pilates since college, Christina sought a new method to help alleviate the pain -strengthening and stretching her muscles in different ways. Under the mentorship of Anne-Marie Mitchell and Jennifer Colvin, Christina has been able to deeply explore the art of aerial and its benefits affecting stretching, strengthening, and confidence-building.
Christina is currently earning her certification in Aerial Yoga from the Aerial Yoga Academy and looks forward to joining Aero Joe as an instructor. Previously, Christina has served as a swim coach, a sport she still practices to today, and was a member of the University of Alabama Women’s Rowing team. She holds a M.A. in History and a M.S. in Museum and Field Studies from the University of Colorado. She works full time in Birmingham as a Museum Professional and History Instructor.
