About Me

Lindsay Nova often calls herself “a one woman spiritual circus”. She is a firm believer in the wisdom of the body, the strength of the heart, and the power of the breath. After studying dance, yoga, and movement from coast to coast, she has dedicated her life to being a creative fitness educator and multidimensional performance artist, inspiring and empowering others to take charge of their lives and live their own dreams.

An internationally recognized performance artist, she holds a BFA in Dance from Ohio University and is a certified yoga, Pilates mat, and barre fitness instructor. Currently she teaches in the San Francisco Bay Area and performs aerial, hoop dance, fire dance, and stilt walking as both an independent artist and company member in several groups from around the United States. She has performed for such artists as Zeds Dead, Papadosio, String Cheese Incident, Govinda, Vibesquad, and more at events like Electric Forest, Rootwire, and Burning Man. She has been a member of the dance group Anna and the Annadroids for 5 years, and most recently performed with The Vampire Circus at the Hard Rock Hotel in Panama City, Panama.
