ST. LOUIS - June 23, 2016 - PRLog -- Lilly Steele is the perfect balance of dreamer and doer! As an aeiral yoga instructor and circus performer she is always challenging her audience and students to dream big.  Her dream: To travel the world showing people her joy of performing and teaching aerial yoga.  After several years of rigourous traveling and performance schedule (which didnt include things like a bath tub to soak in after a long day of performing) she realized traveling would be so much more cozy, if she could bring her house with her. So, here comes the doer, Lilly sacrificed a permanet dwelling and couch surfed for the last three years so she could save, scavenge and source materials on a tiny budget so she could create her home, on her time, her way.  Her way would provide obstacles that a tradtional process would not have.  Her goals were to build a house that used recycled and reclaimed materials.  She wanted a minimal carbon footprint.  She wanted it to store her circus equipment. And last but not least she needed a sanctuary for herself and her fur babies to regroup and renew.

As she was sharing her story with her friends on Instagram and Facebook, HGTV saw her journey and wanted to share it with their audience.  Over the past nine months , Lilly's Tiny House grew and developed (yes, like a baby)  With the help of friends, including her students, and local circus performers, Lilly built her house, right here in St. Louis. Now the House is ready for living and traveling and HGTV captured the process on their hit show "Tiny House, Big Living"

Lilly says, "When the producers from the show contacted me last September, I got excited because they told me that for the episode to air, i would have to have it completed in May, so that it could air this summer, and for me that gave me a goal date to get this done and keep things on track! Sourcing a home yourself, without a big budget and wanting to use recycled materials was a challenge at times, but I was able to get it done pretty close to the deadline and now the show is ready to air!"

Lilly Steele Fitness is an aerial yoga studio and personal training gym.  It is located in the grove neighborhood.  Lilly's philosophy of sustainable living can be seen in her studio, her classes, as well as, her Tiny House, which is currently housed in the parking lot with hopes of finding a semi-permanent, between travels location.

Check out her story this Monday and head over to HGTV.COM for additional air times.

Lilly's Tiny Circus Home
Traveling circus performer Lilly has been couch surfing for three years and has decided a tiny house-on-wheels is the perfect solution for her nomadic lifestyle. She's designed the 130-square-foot layout that she, her dad and circus friends will help build. Original features include a hidden storage compartment for her heavy circus equipment, a sunken bathtub to soak in after performances, and a specially-designed staircase that allows her pets to maneuver freely from loft to living room.
