Membership in The Parish is currently closed until December.

But I'm from New Orleans and when something is given without expectation of a return, it's called lagniappe. It's a little extra. This dollar says you support me and my work, and it will put a smile on my face. 

This tier includes access to any blog posts before they become public and any Parish announcements.

About The Parish

Welcome to Circus Mobility’s The Parish.  

My name is Jessica John and I am a performing and teaching aerial artist, spreading the gospel of sound technique and durable circus bodies. I love sharing my research, whether it is a novel way to train roll ups on the ground or a wacky way into scorpion. In a former life, I was a CIA analyst, analyzing complex problems and making them easily digestible for non-experts. Now I use those same skills to help my students--from curious hobbyists to working professionals--safely progress to badassery.

Whether you're looking for divine inspiration or to simply exorcise those shoulder demons, The Parish has something for you. I provide in-depth tutorials on foundational aerial skills as well as sexy tricks making the rounds on IG. How do you wrap it? Am I ready for it? How could this skill go wrong? I take out the guess work by explaining any strength and mobility prerequisites and breaking down each progression step-by-step. Plus, I explain what makes it work so that you can learn to draw outside the lines.

Stalled on your road to flat middle splits or rollups? I provide technical and mobility tips and a large library of full-length mobility and aerial classes to unlock what's limiting you.

Help build the community you want to be a part of. Have you taken class or workshops with me and feel like you have more to learn? Have you seen my videos but have not had the opportunity to meet or train with me live? Join The Parish.

Let me know what you want to learn, and we'll do a prayer stretch and get you there together.
