South of the bay area, Kerry Tice, owner of Circusoul Yoga, fell in love with the circus arts and ﬂying trapeze while growing up in Sarasota. Instead of pursuing a medical career as planned, he felt called to return to the trapeze and discovered aerial yoga when he sustained an injury.
Aerial yoga has made a big boom on the Suncoast, and no one knows that better than Circusoul Yoga. They had their Grand Opening this weekend with free classes for the community, and owner Kerry Tice has a good idea why the class is so popular.
Yoga practice provided much-needed relief and healed him fairly quickly. Tice was consequently inspired to create a teaching methodology and to patent an aerial yoga hammock that is now sold around the world. He's trained hundreds of new teachers in the art of aerial yoga.
Circusoul Yoga, owned and operated by trapeze artist Kerry Tice, is structured just like a regular yoga class, but with one big exception: Students are suspended in the air in bright-colored fabric hammocks, designed by Tice himself. Don’t feel like leaving the ground? Circusoul offers other yoga classes for all levels—but there’s something liberating about taking to the air.
The intention behind this exploration (and those to come) is to bring the entire yoga community together online. It is meant for us, as practitioners, to explore our resonance and share how yoga has positively impacted our lives, and honor the teachers that guide us along the way.
