"For me, the best part has been getting a handstand. I have been trying to nail one for a while, and I think I have the tools now to make it." -Maria Jose Targa - Nicaragua "[CircAsana] allows you to have this creative expression, and kind of discover that for yourself. They create this very sacred space to allow you to do that. I'm completely blown away by how powerful this experience has been." - Ashley Naungayan - California "I have more confidence - doing yoga, public speaking, and life generally - because I've had the opportunity to be more ME here." -Elise Rowland - Australia "It has been more than just a teacher training, it has kind of been a person training too!... I'm in love with this. I'm already planning to come to the next retreat." - Jenni Thomas -Washington "[The CircAsana Aerial Teacher Training] really brought my yoga, aerial practice and therapeutics side literally to another level. Not just being in the hammock, but it has expanded my knowledge of the body, the mind and the spirit." - Ireni Stamou - Costa Rica
