Laura Camp, Owner and Director of Flying Studios, was a jazz dancer in Texas for 15 years; a yoga lover, personal trainer, and fitness competitor in the 90’s; and a 2000′s era circus aerialist.
After a decade of teaching with the inimitable Tim Thompson at Monkey Yoga in Oakland, Laura struck out to build a new hybrid community — bringing together yogis, dancers, and fitness buffs.
Flying was built with a vision to support the Oakland ‘otherhood’, or the rebels, artists, musicians that make this community a cultural hub for innovation. Thanks to this community, this is why Flying soars higher with all creatives involved.
Today, our team of owners, managers, instructors and crew at Flying fancy ourselves the funky bunch on the Temescal block. We work hard, sweat buckets, know how to chill, and laugh till our bellies hurt while mindfully exploring our physical, mental, and spiritual lives.
