Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course

“Aerial yoga is a balance between hanging on and letting go”

 24th-30th MAY 2020

Open for Registering!

Blue Indigo Yoga School, reaching out from Siem Reap, to invite you to join the next 50 Hours Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course (TTC). We are the only school in Cambodia accredited by Yoga Alliance International offering this TTC; giving you the fundamentals of Aerial Yoga.

Aerial Yoga or also known as Anti-gravity Yoga is a combination of classical Hatha asanas and aerial circus arts. This practice adds a new challenge to traditional yoga poses and it is accessible to everyone, even complete yoga beginners.

 Using a specially designed swing to strengthen the muscles, find more length in the spine while playing with gravity. The swing also helps to find safe and correct alignments for both tricky inversions and in most yoga poses. Aerial Yoga is a chance to bring your yoga practice to another level, to play, fly, to try something different and to put yourself in a position you never thought you could be in.

This training can be done after a Yoga TTC as a good foundation and understanding in yoga is needed. If you are beginner to yoga, we advice to attend at least a few yoga classes (meditation, hatha, vinyasa, yin, restorative, Aerial…) first to gain some experience and practice beforehand.

Upon successful completion, you will receive an official Certificate of continued education from Blue Indigo; a certified school by Yoga Alliance International and fully qualified yoga teachers.
