The Aerial Yoga Foundations course will give you over 100 poses to create new and challenging classes for your students. It’s the perfect way to share your love of Aerial Yoga and it’s the perfect addition to a studio already offering a range of wellness options or just on its own.

Within this training programme you will learn how to teach Aerial Yoga safely, taking into consideration your equipment, the environment and most importantly your students. We encourage you to use your experience to create your own unique Aerial Yoga class or you can use the training to deepen your own understanding of Aerial Yoga.
