CircuSoul started out as a dream and a passion for owner and founder Kerry Tice. His original intent was to start a circus production company and perform on the high flying trapeze.
In 2009 CircuSoul got its start out in Tulsa, Oklahoma where they ran a recreational trapeze rig offering flying trapeze lessons to the public. It was a hard and grueling summer out in the dust bowl, but many valuable lessons where learned and our journey had only just begun.
In 2010 CircuSoul came back home to Sarasota, Florida and became CircuSoul Productions, LLC that specialized in circus performances for private parties and events. CircuSoul Productions went on to perform for the likes of Ultra Music Festival, Oceana, and The Humane Society of Lakewood Ranch, just to name a few. Spite fufilling one of his dreams of owning and running a circus production company, Kerry Tice longed for more. His passion for Yoga was growing and he knew that he wanted to merge his love of Circus with his love of Yoga.
In late 2012 Kerry Tice morphed a piece of fabric and launched an outdoor areial yoga program straight out of his homes backyard; Gillispie Park Aerial Yoga was born and took the community of Sarasota by storm. People all over town referred to it as the as the “tree yoga” place. It was an amazing opportunity to connect with nature, have a fun work out, and experience something new. Being able to commune with a giant oak tree and sky-high bamboo, while being suspended from colorful cocoons was a beautiful and unique experience. Sadly the tree could only hold so many people at one time, and Mother Nature was a force to be recokoned with during the Summer months in Florida, so off we went looking for a new space.
In the start of 2014 CircuSoul opened its doors at its current location at 4141 S. Tamiami Trail, this time armed with TWO suites dedicating its space to all things yoga and circus. Suite 6, referred to as Studio Air houses all of our aerial yoga classes and circus classes, where we instruct on aerial yoga hammocks, aerial silks, static trapeze, and aerial hoop (lyra). Suite 11, also known as Studio Earth, houses our Warm and Hot Yoga Classes and is equipped with an infrared heater.
From just a dream and a piece of fabric, Kerry Tice has built a successful and professional company from the ground up, and shows us that with a little work and dedication anything is possible.
