Amy Rowland

Previously a circus-performing lawyer yogi in Australia and Japan, Amy took a break from her corporate career to run away with the circus and learn more yoga.  She performed as an adagio acrobat in Australia, studied at circus school in China, street performed in Serbia, travelled with clowns in Mexico and practiced plenty of yoga along the way.

Today Amy is a certified Sivanada Yoga teacher, Partner Acrobatics teacher, and co-founder of CircAsana Yoga.  She teaches CircAsana Yoga at Magnific Rock in Nicaragua, where she also manages the yoga retreat program and coordinates CircAsana Yoga community circuses.

Saffron Van Rossem

Practicing yoga for 8 years, Saffron is a professional aerial silks performer, certified Hatha Yoga teacher, Partner Acrobatics teacher, and favourite yoga, acrobatics, hooping and aerial teacher for both kids and adults alike, from California to Nicaragua.  

Saffron's classes combine her movement passions with her solid yoga foundation to create a truly unique experience.  She brings focus to the profound subtleties of the body mind connection through the medium of magical moving play.



The Yoga

CircAsana Yoga is a fun blend of acrobatic and aerial conditioning, vinyasa yoga and restorative physical therapy.  It works to develop sustainable strength, flexibility, grace and joy.

The acrobatic and aerial conditioning component focuses on the development of functional strength, through connected-upside-down-ness, safe flight and other creative, playful activity.  Classes incorporate pulling strength, pushing strength, core strength and active flexibility, leaving you balanced, with a happy core, and ready for any physical challenge.

The vinyasa yoga element explores graceful and creative movement, synchronizing dance, breath and mindfulness to open every corner of you, inspire heart-warming peace and bring you into the present moment.

The restorative physical therapy serves as the super sweet sparkling fairy dust on top, working to stabilize the joints and balance muscle groups for a long life of healthy movement.

Challenge yourself in the space between the known and unknown, and find your hidden super powers!




Surfing is what you do in Popoyo, and there is little wonder why.  With some of the most perfect, uncrowded and diverse surf breaks in Nicaragua, Popoyo has your surfing aspirations covered no matter what level you're at.

Perched atop a headland with 270-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Magnific Rock is fortunate to be centrally located to all of Popoyo's most acclaimed surf breaks.

Not only that, Magnific Rock enjoys close proximity to some lesser-known surf breaks, coined Magnific Left and Magnific Right.  These breaks catch some epic waves: the long left-hand break offering perfect sets for long-boarders and beginners, and the right-hand break offering some decent faces and the occasional barrel for the more experienced surfer. 


Local Hot springs

These naturally heated pools of water are a great way to relax those worn out yoga and surf muscles! 

Frequented by tourists and locals alike, the Las Salinas Hot Springs provide a rejuvenating and therapeutic experience whilst giving you a glimpse into life in the village.


Catamaran cruise

Truly experience all aspects of Nicaragua and the surrounding area with a sunset sail along the beautiful west coast of Nicaragua.  See the lay of the land in all its splendid beauty; swim, jump from cliffs, fish or snorkel, and enjoy a drink or few on this fun, all-inclusive adventure.  We will finish the relaxing tour just as the sun magically sets over the horizon in tranquilo Gigante Bay.


THE Magnific rock cafe

Embracing the simplicity of food in a pleasant and home-style setting, everything possible is made here; from the hand churned butter to daily baked breads, fresh pasta, pastries and heavenly desserts.

Every healthy detail in the kitchen has been taken care of. We use only the freshest of fresh ingredients.  Our beef is locally grown, Grade A Nicaraguan Beef (exported internationally). Our seafood (lobsters, mahi-mahi, sea bass and other local favourites) is caught in the waters of the nearby fishing village Astillero, and our crisp vegetables are delivered daily from nearby Popoyo farms.  We have our very own herb garden, and fresh fruit goes into making an array of rejuvenating smoothies.

Daily specials are created by our talented, up-and-coming chefs presenting locals flavorsome dishes with visually appealing, creative flare.  We also have a fresh juice of the day, a daily vegetarian special, and can cater to other special dietary requirements.
