Aerial yoga is essentially using a hammock in a wide variety of ways to enhance your Yoga practice. This course will allow Yoga teachers to become proficient at using the hammocks as a prop for their own practice. They will also learn how to safely teach aerial yoga to students in both a private and group setting. Trainees will also learn the history of aerial practices, benefits, risks, safety, set up, class design, and class management.

The course has four main areas of learning:
