Mission

CircusYoga connects and empowers families and communities through creative expression, embodied play and co-authored culture. Artfully designed to engage all ages, CircusYoga blends the consciousness of yoga with the celebration of circus, reconnecting us all to our "human art of play."

Principles

CircusYoga is a principle-based practice centered on and grounded in:

  • inclusion,
  • connection,
  • co-authorship &
  • empathy

Practices

CircusYoga fosters connection, play and communication through:

  • Community & Mandala Yoga
  • Partner Yoga, Acrobatics & Flying
  • Group Games & Invention
  • Circus Skills: Juggling, Diabolo, Devil Sticks and more
  • Clowning & Physical Comedy
  • Balance in poses, on a Pipe and on a Tight Wire
  • Creative Movement & Dance
  • Thai Yoga Massage

Throughout our lives, we tend to be grouped with others close to our own age, and, as a result, often end up learning mostly from our peers. In CircusYoga, we co-create an inclusive practice and become a diverse tribe of life-long learners and teachers discovering balance, joy, courage, agelessness and appropriate risk.

This diversity makes CircusYoga a rich experience—everyone benefits as the wisdom of age collaborates with the energy of youth. And transformation happens as all ages practice together and build self-confidence, focus, trust and teamwork.

We invite parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents to participate with their kids, and welcome anyone aged 7 and up. This includes adults without kids. Teachers, yoga instructors, circus educators, family social workers and occupational therapists all gain new techniques applicable to their own work and play.
