Aerial Yoga 101 for Yoga Teachers


  • Kaia Yoga - Westport 1200 Post Rd East Westport, CT (map)

Om Factory School of Yoga's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Program (OFSY AYTT) was developed over the past several years through the collaboration of Om Factory's Aerial Yoga Teaching Faculty. The program is intended to teach Certified Yoga Teachers the necessary tools to teach safe, intelligent and dynamic Aerial Yoga Classes. Our particular style of Aerial Yoga was and continues to be developed by our teaching community and dedicated students. It is heavily rooted in and inspired by a traditional yoga practice. Despite the eye-catching glitz of circus-inspired acrobatics, yoga is our meat and potatoes; circus is dessert.

This 16-Hour TT Module at Kaia Yoga will cover the Foundations of Aerial Yoga. The main exploration will be the ways traditional yoga poses are altered by their interaction with the aerial hammock. It is expected that trainees already have at least a base knowledge of yoga anatomy, philosophy and class sequencing.

Additional topics covered in this course will include:

  • Basics of Acrobatics and Relevant Preparatory Conditioning
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aerial Yoga Safety
  • Aerial Yoga Class Sequencing
  • Hands on Spotting and Assists

Upon completion of this Module, trainees will have the tools they need to begin using an aerial hammock as a prop in their vinyasa classes or to create sequences that implement this prop for the entire class.
