Katie Duvall

Katie Duvall

Katie began her yoga journey in the East Tennessee State University Mini Dome many years ago with Jen Kintner. She loved both the challenge and peacefulness a vigorous vinyasa class brought. About three years ago Katie made her new year's resolution to try one new experience per month that put her out of her comfort zone. That year's April out of the comfort zone experience was an aerial yoga class at Azure Aerial Arts Studio. Since then she's embraced the aerial life and become an aerial yoga instructor.
Katie has a Master' degree in Professional Communication, is an Appalachian and women's health scholar, and works as the Research Services Manager at the Department of Pediatrics at East Tennessee State University's Quillen College of Medicine.

Wil Rhew

Wil Rhew

Wil began studying aerial arts after a friend recommended the classes after having taken a course in silks at their university. Having an interest in arts and athletics, he gave the classes a try and was immediately hooked. Wil loves to perform on silks and trapeze and enjoys finding connecting elements between different aerial disciplines.Wil finds technique, strength, and body awareness to be the most intriguing aspects of aerial arts but also the most difficult to master. Outside of the studio Wil has a bachelor’s degree in foreign languages with concentrations in French and Spanish from East Tennessee State University and loves cultural studies. Inspired by his instructors and fellow Night Owls, Wil encourages everyone to give aerials a try and be adventurous!
