What is CircAsana yoga?

CircAsana yoga is a fun blend of acrobatic and aerial conditioning, Vinyasa yoga, and restorative physical therapy. It works to develop sustainable strength, flexibility, grace, and joy. The acrobatic and aerial conditioning component focuses on the development of functional strength, through connected-upside-down-ness, safe flight, and other creative, playful activity.

Classes incorporate pulling strength, pushing strength, core strength, and active flexibility, leaving you balanced, with a happy core, and ready for any physical challenge. The Vinyasa yoga element explores graceful and creative movement, synchronizing dance, breath, and mindfulness to open every corner of you, inspire heart-warming peace, and bring you into the present moment.

CircAsana yoga community circus project

CircAsana periodically hosts community circuses at Magnific Rock and other hotels in Nicaragua. The performances involve professional performers, children from the local school, unsuspecting hotel guests, and anyone else who might have a slight inclination to test themselves in front of a friendly audience. This retreat gives participants the opportunity to learn some of the CircAsana performance tricks of the trade, and be a part of the community circus creation formation.
