Take flight with OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training, or discover our NEW Aerial Mellow Flow Training!

program overview

OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training (AYTT) is intended to give Certified Yoga Teachers the necessary tools to lead safe, intelligent and dynamic Aerial Yoga classes. Dedicated students looking to deepen their knowledge and take their practice to a new level are also welcome to participate. 

 

Om Factory's particular style of Aerial Yoga was developed over several years by its Core Aerial Faculty and continues to be shaped by our aerial community. It is heavily rooted in and inspired by a traditional yoga practice. Despite the eye-catching glitz of circus-inspired acrobatics, yoga is our meat & potatoes; circus is dessert.

 

OFSY AYTT is always headed by two Lead Instructors with the support of additional guest teachers from our Core Faculty. Our intention is to introduce participants to varied perspectives and teaching styles. We are not looking to produce clones of our faculty; rather, our aim is to empower trainees to find their own unique methodology.

 

Graduation requirements include alert & present attendance at all in-class hours of training, as well as satisfactory completion of a practical teaching exam and written test on the final day of the course. Within two weeks of completing the course, all trainees must submit two final projects before receiving their certification. Students who miss training hours, fail a test, or turn in final projects late will be required to pay an additional fee in order to be evaluated and considered for certification.

 

Upon satisfying all graduation requirements, trainees are encouraged to continue study with an additional 50-Hour OFSY Aerial Apprenticeship.This program builds a bridge from training, towards actualizing skills and beginning to teach class.
