Why do Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with us?
Our 50 hour aerial yoga teacher training program is the safest, most supportive, and most rewarding hammock-based methodology available today. Learn directly from teacher’s teacher Carmen Curtis as she passes on the lessons learned from over 25 years in professional gymnastics, cirque, and aerial performance.
Our practice blends the mental and physical, leaving you feeling elevated inside and out. When you spend your time hanging upside down, you’ll start to realize that most things are a matter of perspective. Where other methods can be just a flex for your body, this practice yields countless benefits for both body and mind.
