KTT LV1 - LV5 CERTIFIED
Currently an engineer in the Bay Area, Rissa spends almost all of her free time training pole, lyra, straps, hammock, and contortion. She teaches flexibility classes online and in-person at Revel Room Studios and is also a NASM-CPT.
Rissa started training her flexibility in 2018 shortly after a back injury to regain her back strength. In May 2019 she began training with Bendy Anya in her Kintortion program and within a few months she was teaching active flexibility classes to practice teaching.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, Rissa continued practicing Kintortion and doubled her contortion training when she began training with Serchmaa Byamba. In the next few years, she hopes to teach full-time. Besides contortion, Rissa enjoys head-banging at metalcore concerts, playing with her friend's Pekingnese, and eating ice cream.
