Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19, 2011 – first time at BCC! Circus Yoga by Erica & Kevin
CircusYoga is an invitation. Artfully designed to engage all ages, CircusYoga blends
the consciousness of yoga with the communal celebration of circus.
CircusYoga fosters connection, play and communication through:
Community & Mandala Yoga
Partner Yoga, Acrobatics & Flying
Group Games & Invention
Circus Skills: Juggling, Diabolo, Devil Sticks and more
Clowning & Physical Comedy
Balance in poses, on a Pipe and on a Tight Wire
Creative Movement & Dance
Thai Yoga Massage
Throughout our lives, we tend to be grouped with others close to our own age, and, as a result, often end up learning mostly from our peers. In CircusYoga, we co-create an inclusive practice and become a diverse tribe of life-long learners and teachers discovering balance, joy, courage, agelessness and appropriate risk.
This diversity makes CircusYoga a rich experience—everyone benefits as the wisdom of age collaborates with the energy of youth. And transformation happens as all ages practice together and build self-confidence, focus, trust and teamwork.
We invite parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents to participate with their kids, and welcome anyone aged 7 and up. This includes adults without kids. Teachers, yoga instructors, circus educators, family social workers and occupational therapists all gain new techniques applicable to their own work and play.
We have taught hundreds of teachers, and while all of them bring their unique and wide array of life experience to their teaching, they all share a dedication to these CircusYoga principles:
Our practice is constantly being discovered. We aim to be good listeners before teachers. As a result, CircusYoga reflects everyone who has ever gathered to practice with us and those experiences they bring with them. We are deeply grateful to all of you and hope this web site expresses your brilliance.
