Terril Teran Mire
I have had a love affair with the art of movement as long as I can remember, from the playground bars, to gymnastics, until I finally found my passion through Aerial Circus Arts in 2000.
I learned to perform on many different apparatus through specific on the job training, Private Lessons, or collaborating on performances with my mentors and peers. I have performed on Aerial Hoop, Static Trapeze, Rope, Spanish Web, Chinese Pole, Bungee Trapeze, Triple Trapeze Carousel and specialized in Silks, Hammock and walking on 3' Peg Stilts!
From 2000- 2018 I performed as an Aerialist across the U.S. and Internationally, for Circus Shows, Special Events, Festivals, Clubs, Theme Parks, Weddings and Corporate Events. I have performed with Il Circo, Velocity Circus, Cirque Berzerk, Shapeshifter Circus, Stilt Circus, Velvet Hammer Burlesque and at Cirque de la Mer, Disney's California Adventure, Red Bull's Hangar Sieben Grand Opening in Austria and with the Espana Family Circus at Toshimaen in Japan, to name a few.
In 2009, I co- founded Bella Circo Productions with the amazing Sara Toney. We specialized in creating custom themed performances which led to our Contemporary Theatrical Circus Productions, Oceania and La Galleria.
In 2001 I fell in love with Vinyasa Flow Yoga, taught by the amazing Brenda Strong, at Yoga Villa in Los Angeles, CA. In order to deepen my practice, I attended a Yoga Teacher Training Retreat in 2008, with Ganga White and Tracey Rich, at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. I became a Certified Yoga Instructor in 2016 Through the Art of Balance Yoga School in Lynden, WA. I am currently registered with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher- RYT 200.
In 2016, my interest in seeking a deeper understanding of anatomy and movement (in order to be a better Aerial Instructor) led me to the discipline of Pilates. I have completed my Professional Comprehensive Pilates Training through Balanced Body University which includes Mat, Small Props, Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair and Barrels and I currently teach online for a local studio in Bellingham, WA.
I began Teaching Aerial Classes in 2009 and have taught at Cirque School LA and in Washington State at Riverside Health Club and the Bellingham Circus Guild. I have also taught classes in Aquatic fitness, Osteoporosis Safe Pilates and am Certified as an Advanced Pilates Suspension Method Instructor, TRX® Trainer, TRX® for Yoga, Group Centergy® and Yoga Trapeze® Instructor.
I love sharing my knowledge of fitness and and feel very fortunate to have made my passion of movement into a successful teaching career!
"I really enjoy taking Yoga and Pilates classes with Terril! She is great at explaining how to move my body properly to get the most out of each position. She has an uncanny knack for knowing if there is a muscle that is slacking that needs to be turned on... She has an open, non- judgemental approach to teaching that is great for all skill levels. I am always tired and so hungry after classes with Terril, which means I'm getting a great workout!” ~ Mariah
