Training space is available 24 hours a day on this Circus Professionals Skill Share Retreat.   There are 2 training spaces- a full, open air gym with 6 aerial points and a smaller space for stretching, conditioning, and handstands practice. We offer suggested training schedules considering meal times and sunset, but participants can train when they want.  The rest of your time can be spent eating amazing, healthy food, swimming and surfing in the warm ocean, reading in hammocks, and breathing the tropical air.  There will be plenty of time to explore local markets and beaches, swim with dolphins, release baby turtles, and indulge in the local night life.
