Sign up here!

CIRCUS FIT/Strength & Flow Retreat is for anybody who wants to get in bad-ass shape Circus style.   Daily classes will be focused on skills/technique, conditioning/strength, and flexibility for aerial and acrobatics and impressing your friends at parties.  We like to call it super hero training.  We will teach fundamental techniques stressing how to use the body most efficiently and how to train in a way that gives you the results you want.   You will get stronger, more flexible and gain technical skills.  It will be super fun too!  We will work with conditioning exercises on aerial hoop, sling, silks, and rings.  

We will have 2 daily classes on this CIRCUS FIT/Strength & Flow Retreat.   Our morning class will be focused on conditioning, and stretching for Super Hero Training!   The afternoon class with will focus on flow!- moving to music, sequencing moves and skills on the floor and in the air, and choreography.  We will also have a handstand workshop.  The rest of our time can be spent eating amazing, healthy food, swimming in the warm ocean, reading in hammocks, and breathing the tropical air.  There will be time to explore local markets and beaches as well as the local night life.

You don’t have to be a circus artist to enjoy this CIRCUS FIT /Strength & Flow Retreat.  Our master teachers will give you tools for a balanced body, core strength, and fun skills.  Whether you want to get your handstand, climb the silks, do tricks in the air, or just stretch your hips, you will get your needs met at this retreat.
