Shift from stress to bliss and experience being in the flow of mind, body and heart in this playful and creative weekend. An introduction to the graceful skills of flow/circus arts is a joyful way to increase hand eye coordination, balance and dexterity. Activities include juggling, hoops, acrobatics, and poi, plus part of the weekend will include mindfulness practice of meditation that compliments the focus required to learn these skills. Breakout sessions for advanced tuition with Haley are an option for those who already have the basics.
This workshop is for people both new to flow/circus arts and others that wish to improve their skills. The weekend opens with a Friday evening after-dinner glow show by Haley, and the workshop participants will create an informal show together for Sunday at 1:00pm. Ages 10 and up.
What to bring: loose comfortable and modest clothing. For beginners we’ll have some heavier hula hoops great for learning. If you can, please bring a set of homemade sock poi. These are made simply with a pair of knee socks and 2 tennis balls. For intermediate students, if you have your own hoop or poi then do bring along.
Individual massage, shiatsu body therapy, and naturopath services available on site at extra cost. Please enquire about booking your preferred therapy through our office.
