Meeting over 5 weekends starting in April 2022, this course will prepare you to care for students through the whole reproductive process, from fertility to pregnancy to postpartum and beyond. We will also study preparation and recovery and yoga practice to support health around reproductive surgeries, such as hysterectomy, and complications, such as endometriosis or prolonged postpartum issues.
We will learn how to support students with a wide range of knowledge, learning from both medical and yoga experts to understand how to care for students holistically. The course will include study on the physical, mental, and emotional needs our students have and the practices we can safely provide.
Each week of training will include comprehensive training to help us understand the needs and concerns students face, with specific yoga tools and techniques suited to those needs.

60-hour course | Summer 2022
The aerial hammock is a beautiful tool that allows us to take yoga to places we cannot go with anything else. Aerial yoga makes the difficult practices of asana easier, and the simple things harder! We can experience weightlessness with some movements, and feel our bodies challenged as never before with others.
This training emphasizes safety and fully understanding the whole process of teaching aerial yoga, from rigging to sequencing to adaptation. Aerial teachers need to be fully prepared to keep their students safe, adapt the practices, and teach all levels of students, and this comprehensive training will allow you to do all of these things.
Our collaboration with master teacher Anne McCarthy of Aerial Yoga San Antonio and Standard Deviation Yoga ensures that you will learn everything you need to know to safely assemble aerial yoga gear, teach thoughtful and safe aerial yoga classes, and take your teaching to an entirely different plane of experience.
