TAMPA, Fla. -- If life got in the way of joining the circus, you might want to check out The Keep Yoga and Circus Arts, in Tampa
Owners Jessica Watson and Kaley Eckersdorff opened 'The Keep' in 2016 to teach men and women to yoga, aerial yoga, acro yoga, and different circus arts.
Circus acts are just that: skills you would see in a circus. Things like the trapeze, aerial silk, aerial rings, and ropes hang in 'The Keep' from 31-foot ceilings and offer plenty of room to swing, hang, spin.
“Aerial is one of those arts that seems hard at first but the longer you do it, and the longer you stick with it, it's going to get easier and easier,” says Watson.
It's also a great workout, increasing, strength, flexibility, and cardio.
The keep is also the home of the Aerial Dragons, a performance group that travels around Florida showing off their circus art skills at private and public events.
