Below you will find a list of Oregon teachers who will be leading workshops at the Mosier event. Each brings a unique perspective, incredible talent, and a lot of personality to the experience.

Jason and Chelsey Magness (Bend)
Chelsey and Jason have over 30 years of combined training under their belt.
These two world class adventure athletes, acrobats, coaches and meta learners take training and teaching very seriously.

 

 

They love to teach progressively, gently coax people outside of their comfort zones and way beyond their perceived potential.
Together the two are a force to be reckoned with.
Jason will talk you off the ledge and Chelsey will catch you with open and excited arms.
