MORGAN: THE INSPIRED ARTIST
A perfectionist-turned-artist, her class will set you free.
The second after Morgan's friend told her about ((305)), she was instantly hooked. Here was a place that mirrored her own journey of self-love and self-validation. In Morgan’s class, you will feel loved and accepted as you are. Morgan hopes her class is a tool to connect with yourself, fight your inner demons, and accept who you are, flaws and all!
Now, that's our kind of girl!
Let's start with any easy one: how much would someone have to pay you to teach ((305)) butt naked?
Well, it depends: if you catch me during my super cut, bikini prep season, we’re only talking $1 million, but if you catch me when I have a little more love around the edges, we’re talking $10 million and up.
Ok, you handled that curve ball well! So, if you didn't live in NYC, where would you live?
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - that’s home.
YAAS, we love a California girl. Tell us something from your childhood that proves you're a #BOSS:
During senior year of high school, I graduated high school early (with a 4.0) in order to study dance on scholarship in NYC! I even created a full proposal that I presented to my parents to explain why I could/should be able to participate in the program — it worked!
Ok, go off sis!!! So, it sounds like you were a good student.
Our girl can fly
Yes, definitely a 4.0 perfectionist. I was the one who would turn in the tests last to make sure I triple-checked every answer. How exhausting!
It paid off though- how did that impact who you are today?
I am proud of being an artist of color who is passionate about health and wellness for other artists of color. Fitness and health are so much more than external looks, but about internal, mental and spiritual health. Artists are the creators that shape this world, and in order to do so, we must first know how shape ourselves from the inside out.
Woah. Ain't that the truth! Is there anything that has impacted you the most on your journey?
My relationship with God/Infinite Intelligence is of utmost importance to me. I wouldn’t be where or who I am without the faith, strength, and guidance that I believe comes from this Higher Power.
That resonates, for sure. Are there any people you look up to?
- Beyoncé - she is my spirit animal
- Malcolm X - the man was brilliant
- James Baldwin - pure brilliance, there is no other artist/author like him.
How would you feel if one day Beyoncé took your class?
I. WOULD. DIE.
I get that. What's the best part about ((305))?
THE COMMUNITY -- especially among the leaders at ((305)). It’s such a joy to be able to come to work and know that the people I’m working with are genuinely rooting for all of our success. I also love the care and genuine interest that the leadership takes in the clients. It’s just a big sassy, genuine, unapologetic love fest at ((305))!
Awww, we love you too. Is there one fitness class you'd never be caught teaching?
Zumba. No shade, but just... no.
LOL. So, do you have a favorite type of dance outside of our studio?
Contemporary! I’ve been a classically trained dancer since the age of 6 and I LIVE for a good contemporary class.
A woman of many talents! Thank you so much for speaking with us, any parting words of advice?
I'll leave you with my life motto: the only limitations are the ones that I create in my mind. If I do not create the limitations, they do not exist; there are no limitations.
READY FOR MORE MORGAN?
Us too, boo! Get your a$$ to class and sign up for some fun with this diva.
