WHO WE ARE

A CONSCIOUS CIRCUS COLLECTIVE

Momentom is a community for those who embrace the circus and yogic lifestyle and value meaningful human connection through travel. Momentom is a community of skilled artists and yogis who believe that traveling is not just trekking the globe with a backpack, it is also about the exploration of the self. The collective has developed a methodology based on the philosophies of yoga and calisthenics of acrobatics.

 

WHAT WE DO

With the wide array of skills on the team, momentom specializes in workshops, festival performances, international retreats, artist residencies and teacher trainings. Our social mission brings yoga and circus to the humanitarian missions across the globe with key partners.

THE COLLECTIVE STORY

ONCE UPON A TIME, IN THE JUNGLE OF A FAR OFF LAND...

Our story starts in the jungle of Nicaragua with starry-eyed world wanderers talking about life, love, existence and everything in between.

These ladies thrived to become authors of a life story worth being told. They spoke of a sandy existence in harmony with the sun, the moon, the ocean, the stars. They talked about devising a platform that could inspire others to live a non-conventional lifestyle- dropping the 9 to 5 for a life of self-expression, artistic creation, mindfulness and community living through circus arts and yoga. This platform they coined- ‘the Momentom Collective’

Today, these dreams are in full throttle. Momentom Collective is international, with a solid team and amazing projects. International Artist Residencies, Retreats and YTTs are just some of the for profit activities.

As a structure, Momentom is a cooperative enterprise that promotes collectivity by encouraging independent projects.

Momentom Collective’s heart is based on its social initiatives. As we grow, we aim to gain public support and international grants to bring our teachers in refugee camps, prisons and on the humanitarian field. Click here to learn about our social program.

To grow the platform, Momentom accepts applications of innovative, artistic and entrepreneurial projects that go hand in hand with the mission to make circus and yoga a lifestyle. Once accepted, we provide technical and design assistance, along with social media exposure to develop these projects into successful independent businesses hand inland with Momentom Collective.

OUR VALUES

THE PRINCIPLES THAT HELP US THRIVE

ACTION

Be the change you want to see in the world- Ghandi.
We put action to our words and intentions.


AUTHENTICITY

“Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you.” – Dr Seuss.
We aspire to act with the best intentions without exception.


CREATIVITY

“Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument”.
We believe in the power of movement, of art and original thinking. We support critical and out of-the-box thinking.


COMPASSION

Our actions are based on the notion to do onto others what we’d like to have done to us.


COOPERATION + PARTICIPATION

Our collective is committed to a participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change can occur only through the medium of personal participation to attain collective impact.


COMMUNITY BUILDING THROUGH CIRCUS

We believe the circus and yoga have powerful abilities to bring people together, whether through play or shared space for meditation. We believe the circus itself is multi-faceted: a form of art, a social instrument, a vehicle for self-empowerment.

EXPERIENCE

“Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday”- Dale Carnegie.
We drop into the now and train to be present. Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We understand that no idea or intellectual understanding can substitute the experience.


INCLUSION

We strive for horizontality in our relationships. We welcome everyone and are constantly driven by enhancing our crew.


LEAVE NO TRACE

Leave more than what you take. We are committed to cleaning up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them, including ourselves.


BUT, YOGA FIRST

You must go within to go without.
We believe in the power of yoga, and its 8 limbs for self-transformation. We are guided daily by these.


SELF EXPRESSION

While yoga is the dissolution of the self, circus is the exploration of all your selves. Yoga allows you to discover the power of awareness. Circus provides infinite possibilities of self-expression through non-traditional, communication and expression. In this spirit, the collective promotes all self-expression- from the inside out.


HOLISTIC SUSTAINABILITY

We strive for economic, social and environmental sustainability in all of our projects.
