Levitation Nation founder Mindy Cochran is certified as a group fitness instructor, personal trainer, and life coach. She is a practitioner, teacher, and performer of aerial silks, aerial hammock, aerial hoop and pole fitness, as well as a fitness blogger and columnist for Montana Woman Magazine. Mindy holds titles as first place soloist for Montana's first ever pole competition (hosted in 2019 by the Fox Club Cabaret in Missoula) and ambassador for Dragonfly Brand (polewear). Mindy got her start teaching Zumba© and shortly thereafter, she expanded on her love of dance to create a fun and energetic hip hop dance class called Dance Nation. Meanwhile, Mindy started practicing aerial arts and took classes whenever she traveled, even learning from performers from the world renowned Cirque Du Soleil. Her desire to share her passions fueled the opening of the Levitation Nation Aerial Studio in 2015. Since she herself began learning acrobatics at 33 years young with no former experience in dance or gymnastics, she believes that anyone can start learning movement at any age, and her fitness philosophy is that fitness should be fun! Now at age 42 and just as strong as ever, she encourages ANYONE interested in starting a journey in aerial fitness to give us a shout immediately!
