It was simple, really. We were different learners ourselves. Found our minds ignited when we engaged physically. Dance, theater, circus, yoga and play made us feel alive and brilliant, while helping us to connect to each other. There was something universal, individually creative and deeply human in how we played together. Every time we practiced, something new arose in our “conversation”. Our capacities for inclusion, connection, co-authorship and empathy also grew. For over 20 years ago we have shared this practice with families, schools, communities, teachers and social workers. We called this practice CircusYoga.
