Om Factory’s Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Program is back and it’s better than ever!

Join us this Fall and take your practice to the next level.

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.

Aerial Apprenticeship program

Upon graduation from OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training, we encourage students to enroll in our 50-Hour Aerial Apprenticeship Program as part of their continued yoga studies. It is highly recommended for all recent grads who wish to refine their teaching style. OFSY's Aerial Apprenticeships provide a framework for teachers to strengthen their teaching voice, clarify their cueing, gain practical experience in class assisting & teaching students, and receive feedback from an experienced mentor.

HEALTH + SAFETY PRACTICES

Due to the latest COVID-19 protocols, all students must show proof-of-vaccination to enter the studio, and wear masks at all times while at the studio. AYTT classes will be limited to 8 participants in order to maintain 6-foot social distance throughout the course. Hammocks may not be shared and we strongly recommend students bring their own yoga mats to each day of training. In order to limit unnecessary contact, we will move select modules that do not require hammocks, to meet via Zoom. 

Visit our Community Health page to learn more about in-studio safety measures.
