And if you have some ideas for events or themes, we’re also interested in any suggestions… Please send them to or come see us!


Circus on holiday: Tami’s recommendations

Posted on 08/13/2013 at 2:08pm

There’re only four weeks left before a new year starts at CircusWest. And by the way, if you haven’t registered yet, CLICK HERE! In the meantime, here’s a question to our senior coach Tami Knight: what do you recommend in order to stay fit during the long summer break?


“Yoga, yoga, yoga. End of story. Every day you should do a daily sadhana. Just what that is remains up to you. It should be mindful and intentional.

Some activities, like writing or drawing or meditation or gardening, feed your soul and spirit. Others, like the yoga asana practice, feed your body.

I recommend a hatha yoga class on the beach while on the Islands. Finish with a swim. Drink some rum and rootbeer afterwards (Editor’s note: skip the rum if you’re not 19+…)
If you’re staying in Vancouver, take a class at a studio within walking distance of your home.

Be well. See you in September.
