Sebastian Rojas (Instagram: @aregularpieceofasparagus) started his movement practice as a martial artist in 2003, and began teaching after he obtained his black belt in 2008. Martial arts provided Sebastian an understanding of the body and awareness that he later translated to aerials. He found his passion for aerial rope and straps, and developed his teaching style based on dynamic movement and a strong foundation in technique.

As a coach, Sebastian focuses on providing clear progressions to help students safely and effectively work toward dynamic skills with strength and precision. When he’s not traveling, you can find him teaching throughout the Detroit area, working to bring rope and straps into the spotlight!
