CircAsana is one of the most distinctive forms of yoga, using the circus arts as inspiration for acrobatic, aerial and Vinyasa poses. If this sounds intriguing (and it probably does), we recommend booking this seven-night retreat in Popoyo, Nicaragua.
As part of the getaway, you’ll learn how to master handstands, hooping (dancing with a hoop or hoops) and slacklining (balancing on a suspended length of flat webbing, similar to tightrope walking), among other acrobatic silks.
After an intense session of acrobatics, you can relax in your room perched atop a cliff at the Magnific Rock Hotel, or enjoy one of several stress-relieving activities, including a one-hour massage or sunset sailing trip along the Nicaraguan coastline. Just for good measure, the retreat offers a surfing lesson as well — and the whole thing ends with a community circus performance.
Getaway details: August 18-25, 2018; prices start at $1,890 for a private room with meals included.
