Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course
“Aerial yoga is a balance between hanging on and letting go”
It’s a combination of classical hatha asanas and aerial circus arts. This practice will add new challenge to traditional yoga poses and 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. 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 the position you never thought you could be in. Upon successful completion, you receive a certificate of continued education. Blue Indigo is a certified school and our teachers are certified by Yoga Alliance.

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.

It’s a fusion of Cambodian ingredients and tastes with some French insights. Meals are served in a shaded garden, simple and friendly.
