Yoga Meets Circus + Play in Paradise!
Do you love adventure and want to learn to fly? Are you a yoga enthusiast looking to take your practice to new heights or have you been inspired by a recent circus show? Come immerse yourself in a beautifully cultural paradise for a week and learn aerial yoga!
Join Lindsay Nova at Talalla Retreat in Sri Lanka May 20-26, 2018
The theme for this week will be an exploration of the 5 elements through our body: earth, air, fire, water, and ether. This retreat is for all levels, beginner and experienced yogis alike. Enjoy daily aerial yoga classes and delicious food in a community environment, surrounded by nature, right on the beach! The daily aerial yoga classes will be complemented by workshops in handstands, partner yoga, and yin yoga with additional excursions including a surf lesson and a visit to a sacred rock temple.
No experience in aerial yoga is needed. The classes will cater to everyone, so you can learn the basic skills of aerial, enjoy what you may already know, and be challenged in a fun and supportive environment for personal growth. You will learn how to use the 5 elements as a mind-body practice through aerial yoga to better understand yourself and what you WANT out of life. Connect to nature, connect to yourself, and take flight!
So get out of your head and into your body! Stop thinking small and believe in what your body CAN do for YOU! Together, we will fly, swim, meditate and release!

What is Aerial Yoga?
Aerial yoga is a fusion of traditional yoga and aerial silks fabric, designed to take your practice to new heights- literally! Many of the postures, however, are performed from the ground using the aerial silk hammock for support. This allows the body to stretch deeper by using the natural source of gravity. Additionally, there are many fun inverted postures where you can experience new ways of being in your body. It will bring back a childlike sense of play into your life as you learn to take flight!
When you go upside down, you flood your brain with more blood and cerebrospinal fluid, which helps the production of neurotransmitters so you literally feel better! It is an all natural mood-booster. Who doesn’t want to feel a little happier?!

About Lindsay Nova
I am a traveling yogini, healer and performance artist. As a lifelong dancer, I have studied the body’s movement capabilities through contemporary dance, circus arts, yoga and Pilates, to name a few. I believe that our bodies are tools for self-expression and liberation, to get out of your head and into your heart! I have used these various modalities, as well as energy healing techniques and meditation, to assist in my own healing of injury and previous trauma. I have performed circus arts around the world and infuses a sense of play into all of my classes. It’s only natural that I have ventured into the world of aerial yoga! My classes are a blend of traditional wisdom with contemporary movement, to help others discover their true calling so that you too can “live life like you mean it”. I have spent the last year teaching internationally from Costa Rica to Thailand and most recently at beautiful Talalla Retreat in Sri Lanka, where this retreat is being held.
