Forget flips, tricks, and ploys — Flying Yoga® offers authentic yoga, and works with gravity to relax and restore the body, focus the mind, uplift the spirit.
FLYING YOGA® TEACHER TRAINING
[Please Note: The Flying Yoga® Teacher Training program is available to students who have not previously completed yoga teacher training. You do not have to be a yoga instructor to attend this course. We highly recommend that you take several aerial classes, or have some prior experience with the aerial yoga hammock before attending the course.
So you’ve fallen in love with Aerial Yoga, and you’re ready to follow your passion into a more reflective exploration through an aerial Yoga Teacher Training. The Flying Yoga® Teacher Training provides far more than a groundwork to teach Aerial Yoga. It’s a deep immersion into a distinct method of Yoga that uses the support of the hammock to investigate, cultivate and advance traditional asana, both in the air and on the ground. As a result of this course, you will be ready to teach fun, safe, and original aerial Yoga classes to diverse populations. And you will assimilate the light bulb moments you learn in the hammock into how you teach ground Yoga, too.
This course will make you a better Yoga teacher and a better human. You’ll discover fine distinctions about your yoga practice that would take years of intensive study in traditional methodologies.
CHOOSE FLYING YOGA®
The Flying Yoga method is the only aerial yoga program rooted in alignment Yoga, which means everything we discover in the hammock can be studied and applied to a traditional floor practice, too. Our aerial yoga program is highly influenced by yoga therapy, yin yoga and the traditional principles of alignment based yoga.
In some Aerial Yoga styles, you might spend most of the class tied up in knots, twirling in a dizzying arrangement of aerial acrobatics. With Flying Yoga®, we engage traditional Yoga asanas purposefully to teach proper alignment in the air. In fact, many of our students come to us from dance and aerial arts backgrounds to learn how to apply correct mechanics of Yoga while flying.
We also use the hammock to highlight subtle distinctions that can only be discovered from an aerial perspective – then we apply these lessons to a traditional floor Yoga practice. With Flying Yoga® you can guide your students into asanas they may never have dared to dream possible – true inversions, and deeper, more integrated backbends. Then your students can work these same mechanics to achieve similar results from their usual Yoga practice, too.
Because Yoga is our foundation, we ground as much as we fly. Playing to our alignment based roots we dance between the elements of AIR and EARTH. We use the hammock as an junction between opposites: yang to yin, to root then rise, cocoon or ascend, to calm and inspire. We love to play, too, and we do it with divine inspiration.
Although our founder is currently a professional circus performer, he’s also a highly experienced terrestrial based yoga (E-RYT500) trainer. So if you’re looking for a circus-centered course, we may not be a good match for you. But if you’re looking for an in-depth, genuine Yoga training with an illuminating twist, we’re here for you.
