Travelling and living with the Momentom Collective has quite literally transformed my life. They gave me space and support to grow and opportunities to push my belief of what I was able to achieve. I’ve come out of this experience so incredibly comfortable in my own shoes, proud and in love with who I have grown to be and inspired to to continue teaching and performing around the world. I can’t wait until I play and work with Momentom Collective again. <3 <3 <3 ”

“With only 3 days at the collective, I wasn’t sure what to expect. By the end of it I was crying and didn’t want to leave. I learned a mass amount about the community, yoga, meditation, circus arts, and much much more. This place inspired me to find the right circus community in my home. Momentom Collective will continue to inspire me and I appreciate everyday the 3 days I spent with these beautiful and empowering souls. Thank you guys for your love!!!!”
