"I would highly recommend Melissa’s Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course. Melissa has a very warm and welcoming approach, instilling confidence in your aerial practice from the start. At the same time as giving a thorough understanding of all aspects of aerial yoga, she invites students to explore their own practice and encourages them to learn from each other throughout this wonderful shared experience. Melissa is generous with her time, knowledge and hospitality.
Even if you aren’t intending to teach Aerial Yoga, you are sure to enjoy yourself at the same time as expanding your knowledge. Thank you Melissa 🙏 I loved it!"
