YOGA OM Teacher Training

This is an exciting opportunity--

You are currently one of the first pioneers in the world of Aerial Yoga. While aerial has been an art that has been well established in the circus community, it has only recently been transferred to the Yogic world. This is an exciting endeavor – you are stepping into some uncharted territory, and have the chance to create unique movements and flows, assist students in the therapeutic art of aerial, and foster a heightened mind-body connection and awareness.

This is a Level 1 Aerial Yoga teacher training that is a 50-hour (40 contact hours, 10 non-contact hours in the form of pre-reading, classes and outside assignments) comprehensive experiential immersion designed to give the current teacher or serious student an in-depth guide through the techniques and practices of aerial yoga. Sessions will include: aerial yoga practice, practice teaching, lecture, sequencing, spotting techniques, discussion, and questions and answers.

After graduating from Yoga OM Aerial Yoga teacher training course, you will have the skill and confidence to immediately teach your own well-sequenced, stimulating and creative Aerial Yoga classes. You’ll also belong to a pioneering, international community of innovative, fun, and sincere Yoga instructors.
