7 Days, 50 Hours Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Course; YACEP, Yoga Alliance

YACEP final

Aerial Yoga Teacher Training In Rishikesh

BKS Iyengar first introduced aerial props. He tied the ropes to walls and ceilings. Like the other props he invented, aerial reinforcements aimed to help the practitioner go deeper into specific postures, easily access inverted poses, and assist in healing. Aerial Yoga is also known as Anti-Gravity Yoga, Arial Yoga, Trapeze, Hammock, Silks, etc.

There is no absolute definition of the term., however, It is a synthesis of Yoga, calisthenics, physiotherapy, pilates, and acrobatics. Aerial Yoga training is a great complementary and supplementary practice to traditional Yoga. However, it is not a standalone alternative to standard yoga practice.

Primarily, aerial Yoga is more accessible than other traditional forms of Yoga as the rig supports the body weight and less muscle engagement is involved. Hence, it is suitable for beginners. Similarly, aerial Yoga can be more challenging for advanced practitioners with slight adjustments. Some benefits of aerial Yoga are:

  1. Assisted Stretching
  2. Easier access to inversions and handstand variations
  3. Using gravity for spinal traction
  4. Pull-based movements
  5. Relieve back pain
  6. Heal Injuries
