They have invited some of our favorite purposeful creators including Andrew Sealy, Matthew Silver, Crested Butte Dance Collective and Symphonic Planet to teach yoga, dance, handstands, AcroYoga, aerial arts (including aerial yoga, silks & lyra), make art and explore the concept of PURPOSE at beautiful Magnific Rock.

The children of El Remate have been practicing yoga weekly for 2 years on a dusty, sunny baseball field, sharing 10 yoga mats between 50 children. Their teacher Harold, has been teaching himself yoga and mindfulness techniques to share with the children and over the past 2 years he has seen great increases in the children's emotional health and communication skills.

They have worked with Harold teaching acro yoga and creating circus performances which the children absolutely loved and are now training Harold to be a certified CircAsana Yoga Teacher so he has even more yoga magic to share with the kiddos. Our goal is to raise funds to build a Circus Yoga School in El Remate and help the children to continue to develop life skills and growth mindsets through circus and yoga education.
