CIRCUS FIT is a fun and functional way for any person of any age/shape/size to get in shape circus style. Step into our paradise gym and monkey around!  Our CIRCUS Fit / Yoga Retreat classes balance strength, flexibility, stability training with functional movement skills such as handstands, cartwheels, aerial yoga, partner stretching, and back bending.

You don’t have to be a circus artist to enjoy this CIRCUS Fit / Yoga Retreat.  Our master teachers will give you tools for a balanced body, core strength, and fun skills.  Whether you want to do a handstand, invert in the aerial hammock, or open your body to its true potential, you will get your needs met at this retreat.  Our priorities are FUN, FEELING GREAT, and FUNCTIONAL FITNESS.

Why Circus Fit and Yoga?

Our master teacher, Kerri Kresinski has a background in technical dance, gymnastics, Chinese acrobatics, anatomy, contortion, and aerial arts, as well as certifications in bodywork, personal training, fitness science, sports nutrition, yoga, Ayurveda, and herbalism.  She will help you go home with a strong understanding (in body and mind) of how Circus Fitness and yoga compliment one another, how pushing and pulling support each other, and how to approach your practice to set yourself up for success.  Best part is Kerri makes it FUN!  That’s the point, right?  Go home with a full brain, a sore body, and a happy heart!
