Program Description

Cary Hot Yoga is proud to present Aerial Yoga Instructor Training for a comprehensive Aerial Yoga Teacher training program for existing Aerial Yoga Students.

Our program consists of three phases:

Phase I

Aerial Yoga Proficiency
Gaining experience practicing Aerial Yoga. Complete a minimum of 20 hours Aerial yoga class training and practice at Cary Hot Yoga.
Aerial yoga is a combination of the art of aerial silks and the classic practice of yoga. Our regular yoga practice is often so confined to solitude; the small island of our yoga mats where there is a tendency to take asana too seriously. Aerial yoga takes everything we land-yogis know about mind-body awareness and throws it out the window. And yes, going upside down with little to no control of your body in space is terrifying… but the small adrenaline rush that comes with it makes it all worth while.

Aerial practice requires students to engage fully with the pose and use their core in ways they may not have previously imagined were possible. In some poses, when gravity is removed from the equation, different muscles are used sometimes with more intensity than they would otherwise.

Many students may come to aerial yoga because they’ve struggled on the mat and have even sustained injury to their shoulders, wrists, or spine. The weightlessness of an aerial practice provides extra support, liberating a student from any modifications they may have had to practice on the ground.

Phase I will allow you to explore different yoga postures on the ground as well as in the air with the hammock.

Phase II

Aerial Yoga Instructor Training.
Cary Hot Yoga’s Aerial Yoga Teacher Training program is a comprehensive 8-day (65 hour) training designed for current yoga students that teaches the how and why of integrating the aerial yoga hammock into their current yoga knowledge. It may be used as continuing education for current yoga instructors, whether or not you have interest in teaching aerial yoga. Cary Hot Yoga’s Aerial Yoga uses the aerial hammock as a tool to explore and inform floor asanas, and in this program we will examine over 100 different postures and how the floor and air postures inspire each other. You will also learn how to put together an aerial yoga class, safety and spotting techniques, rigging for aerial yoga, and how to work with a variety of populations.
