My teacher Gopala Amir Yaffe from Rainbow Kids Yoga, who I did my kids and family yoga training mentioned that he and his wife Angel had been doing some circus training. They were seeking inspiration for aerial yoga poses for their kids yoga classes.
I thought “oh, that sounds cool but it is not for me.” I can juggle three balls but I thought the circus was a bit out there. I think I was afraid.
Then a few months later I was walking along one evening and happened to pass a women’s circus and there were brochures outside the door. I grabbed one and then forgot about it. But I kept coming back to the idea.
My favourite podcast is called “The Unmistakable Creative” hosted by a guy called Srini Rao. This podcast is very inspiring to me because all of Srini’s guests have been busy doing what creatively calls to them.
Dance and inspiring others to move more is my creative outlet (and I neglected it completely for a big stretch of my adult life). And now I feel like I am heading in the right direction again. And I want to inspire others to take some time to recall what they loved when they were a kid and to start doing a version of it that fits in with their life now.
So this week I’m enrolled in an intro to circus class with the Vulcana Women’s Circus in Brisbane. And I found out from my trainer Chae Lindeman that Brisbane is a bit of a circus hub (yay! for Brisbane).
Not so I can perform my new trapeze tricks to an audience (although you never know!) but so I can bring some circus to my family yoga classes and entertain my friends and family and help them to have fun and play together.
family yoga love,
