The Escuela de Comedia y Mimo (School of Comedy & Mime) is a social circus project in Granada, Nicaragua. They have amazing fire-twirling, juggling and superstar clowning members, who teach and perform in Central America and Europe.
Look out for their fun-filled clown workshops, including both fantastic fire twirling and hilarious clown, as well as superstar appearances in the big show!
Amy and Saffron are a professional aerial and acrobatic YOUnicorn duo. They joined forces in the tiny town of Popoyo, Nicaragua, with a shared mission to “unleash the inner YOUnicorn”, inspiring creative confidence and purposeful collaboration through circus and yoga. Their community circuses bridge cultural gaps, bringing together retreaters, artists and the local community to create uplifting, yoga-inspired circus spectacles. These shows not only impact the audience, but leave all involved glowing with a sense of connection and purpose.

This retreat was an unexpected, transformative experience for me. I’m a creative person, and a lot of the things that were represented to me as part of this creative process, were things that I think I might have lost as a child. Ways in which to make new things, express myself as an artist, that I have left behind for one reason or another, and I was able to connect with those things, and I just fell in love with the place and the people.
All the new connections I’ve made; all the experiences doing acro and yoga and other things with people I’ve never met before; all the good thoughts it has generated; all the positive emotions; and all the things I’ve learnt about myself along the way: how I deal with the world, with people, with myself, with my body. Those are invaluable lessons that will remain with me for the rest of my life.
I feel like both Saffron and Amy have infectious personalities that make you feel loved and warm, and make you want to try new things, and give you the confidence to try things you never thought your body could do, but with their instruction I felt like I could let go and put my body into amazing different positions, and just be silly – I think that was what a lot of it was about – just being silly.
Thank you guys – had an amazing time! It you haven’t done one of these retreats, get down to it. I learned everything: acroyoga was amazing, learnt some new techniques when it came to inversions – all your pointers and techniques really nailed it in for me - and then just learning to connect with good people.
I liked all of the acro aspects. I come from a cross-fit background, so I have the strength part but not necessarily the flexibility. I really liked the Hoopasana – I thought that was a lot of fun - hula hooping isn’t something you typically do at this age, so that was really fun. I’ll buy a hoop when I get home.
A super adventurous, colorful, very outdoor, energetic retreat. My intention to come to the retreat was connect to myself and my inner power, and I learnt so many things – my strengths, about pushing myself a little more, but not to take it so seriously. I got to really push myself, without competing or comparing myself to others.
