'But what if I fall?'... Oh, my dear, but what if you FLY?!

This course is accredited with Yoga Alliance as a YACEP designation, or Yoga Alliance Continued Education Provider course, taught by Simmi, with over 1000 hours of teaching people to become yoga teachers.

Aerial Yoga is a fun approach to traditional yoga, allowing you to use gravity in a different way, as you are suspended from a hammock.  The hammock can be used in SO many different ways, by many types of people, to increase strength, flexibility, power, weightloss, as well as provide extra support with things like trust issues, ADHD children and so, so much more.

Simmi has been teaching aerial yoga for over 6 years now, and is totally passionate about it. This teachers training course is an amazing addition to your existing offering as a yoga teacher. We will be offering a chakra aerial training, tapping into each of our energy centres, and using the hammock to aid us in our yogic journey. Learn all you need to know to be able to share this wonderful take on yoga with your students.


Aerial Yoga Training for Teacher's & Students of Yoga

Simmi Fink is registered as an E-RYT500 and YACEP provider, and has been teaching yoga since 2013.

"I find that teaching yoga brings out the Zen, and aerial yoga brings out the Fun."

*This training course is a blend of aerial yoga and spirituality, as I could not teach one without the other. You will gain a deeper understanding of the chakra yoga system, as taught in our 200 hour TTC's, including learning your own chakra life path energy, and other practices that do not form part of your conventional 200hr TTC. You will also gain the skills and knowledge to practice, learn and teach aerial yoga.
