Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course

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

 October 11th to 20th

Now is Open!

Blue Indigo Yoga Siem Reap would love to invite you to join one of our next Aerial Yoga 50 h. certified Teacher Trainings in our cottage in Siem Reap. We are the only school in Cambodia offering this TTC that will give you the fundamentals of this type of yoga.

Aerial Yoga or Anti-gravity yoga, as it is also called, 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.

We use the swing to strengthen the muscles, find more length in the spine and play with the gravity. The swing also helps to find safe and correct alignment not only in the tricky inversions but in most yoga poses. Aerial yoga is a chance to bring your yoga practice to a higher level, to play and fly, to try something different, to put yourself in a position you never thought you could be in.

Upon successful completion, you will receive an official Certificate of continued education. Blue Indigo is a certified school by Yoga Alliance International and our teachers are fully certified by Yoga Alliance.

TTC50H is October 11th to 20th 2019

THE VENUE

Siem Reap is renowned for it’s magnificent temples. As the largest religious and spiritual monument known today, the area has a unique culture and vibration, with deep roots in Theravada Buddhism. You will experience that spiritual culture while practicing at the center or in the countryside, under the shade of centenary trees and archeological wonders.

You will be staying at the Blue Indigo yoga retreat center located 10 minutes away from the Siem Reap riverside. The center is designed as a spiritual retreat center and suits our needs very well. The center comprises of comfortable seven wooden cottages, each 30 sq. m. with a ceiling fan to keep the atmosphere cool and mosquito nets. Each cottage has lovely bathroom with shower. The cottages are nestled in an area surrounded by trees and flowers for a lovely atmosphere.

In the center of the property there is a 100 square meter shala (room) for yoga and meditation.

There is a garden for meals.

Our Khmer cook serve essentially Khmer vegetarian meals, with seasonal fruits and vegetables. These meals are perfectly balanced and participate in your physical and spiritual welfare. The food served during your retreat will be nutritious and homemade variety of vegetarian dishes with local ingredients and an added French twist. It’s a fusion of Cambodian ingredients and tastes with some French insights. Meals are served in a shaded garden, simple and friendly.

Breakfast typically starts around 8am includes honey, bread, porridge, yogurt and oats. Teas are specialty and mixes of the house, with flower aromas. Lunch is served at 12. It’s simple and light like banana leaf salad, amok (local specialty), curries, baked or stir-fried vegetables, and rice.

The temperature is hot in Cambodia. We adapt the active schedule around the hot hours of the day to enjoy the cooler mornings and evenings. The shalas have fans and are outdoors, so there is cool breeze all around.
Mind that the gate closes at 10pm, after that time we lock.

At the retreat please note that you may encounter animals (cats, dogs, chicken, frogs…), insects and mosquitoes. This is a garden setting. Please note that  the dry season is from March to August. Check-in time is from 9am to 9pm.
Check-out time is  11:30am – 12 noon.
