Solidify the foundations for your yoga or aerial silks practices. This retreat is for everyone. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced.

You have the option for Yoga+Silks or Yoga Only in paradise!

Aerial Silks

Have you dreamed of running away to join Cirque du Soleil? Start your training! Learn basics and various techniques for advancing your personal Aerial Silks practice from professional aerialists. Create a safe and accomplished practice in this retreat. You’ll get the framework and key foundations to design your own sequence in the air.  Aerial Silks classes lead by Maia Adams and Stephanie Bailey will be small and intimate providing everyone room to learn and grow at their own pace.  Suitable for beginners to intermediate.


Yoga classes are designed by Nadine Johnson to support needed strength and flexibility for your time in the silks and in everyday life. We begin each day with an invigorating Vinyasa morning practice before breakfast. We’ll end with a grounding evening Restorative practice, influenced by the Urban Zen method, after dinner. There will also be plenty of time and space to delve deeper into your personal practice in workshops during the day. The yoga hall is equipped with mats, blocks, straps, blankets, bolsters and towels. Suitable for all levels.

Wellness Warrriors:

Nadine Johnson

Nadine is a San Francisco native who started practicing yoga to relax. While working 12 hour days and traveling 100K+ miles per year. Yoga helped her stay healthy and thrive in my career. She started teaching to help others discover what she had: a healthier body, healthier mind and a more loving and honest approach to life. Nadine is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT500 certified teacher who has completed trainings with Clayton Horton at Greenpath Yoga, David Swenson, YogaWorks and Urban Zen.  She currently teaches and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Maia Adams

Maia Adams has dedicated her love and devotion to the aerial arts, contortion, acrobatics and hand balancing for the last 6 years and has had the honor of training with Naomi Hummel, Cindy Lijima, Laura Stokes, Kerri Kresinski & TT Robson. Maia’s favorite part about teaching is guiding someone through their first class and seeing the joy it brings to them when they realize they can do things they never imagined.  Maia is currently based in the Bay Area and owns Aspen Aerials, one of the premier aerial studios in San Francisco.

Stephanie Bailey

Stephanie Bailey is an aerial contortionist with endless passion for movement and connection. She’s a co-creator of Suspended Motion Aerial Arts in San Luis Obispo, California.
