HOw is this training different?
Based and deep rooted in REAL Yoga, AIReal Yoga is not a tricks based teaching method. This is why Yoga Alliance recognizes our trainings. This is also why people interested in actual yoga trust our form of aerial yoga over anyother forms of aerial yoga. Each part of the training is taught with the intention of giving each teacher a hollistic, supported, detailed guide to get deeper into their own practice as well as leave with the knowledge and expertise to teach both floor based yoga AND our form of aerial yoga.
Taught by Carmen Curtis, AIReal Yoga Founder and Master Instructor, Carmen is a renowned aerial artist, elite athlete, acclaimed presenter at yoga global festivals, and sought-after guest instructor at studios around the world. Carmen’s teaching blends her personal style with her formal yoga education producing a unique experience infused with love, learning, and laughter. Learn more about Carmen Curtis.

I’m an AIReal Yoga teacher in Dallas, Texas. The training was life changing for me and I love sharing what I’ve learned with my students each week.
The AIReal Yoga™ teaching method, satisfies my nurturing side by building trust with my students and assisting them to attain poses they might not otherwise achieve without the support of the hammock, and it satisfies the yoga teacher in me because it truly is yoga, REAL yoga.
This is an extensive training, currently only offered once a year, taught on select weekends throughout the year in beautiful Ventura, California.

Our 200 Hour is not just for people who want to teach, but for anyone that is looking for a deeper understanding of their own practice.
