Om Fairy® Aerial Yoga Teacher Training – 50 hours


Let your students experience what it’s like to soar!

Experience the joy, courage, playfulness, and awe the aerial hammock can bring to your students’ practice. Aerial yoga helps students discover new relationships with the asanas you teach. Using the aerial hammock as a prop, students can deepen their mat practice, feeling new experiences in familiar asanas and finding support in asanas that might otherwise be inaccessible.

There’s so many ways to explore this practice, and Courtney Krishnamurthy covers many of them in this comprehensive 50-hour yoga teacher training. Courtney has taught a variety of aerial yoga styles on both 1-point and 2-point aerial set ups, and her goal has always been to further enhance the yoga practice with this versatile prop.

This aerial training goes beyond the traditional aerial flow (which is covered) and looks at how to use the hammock to teach a wide variety of yoga modalities. Whether you want to embrace the womb-like quality of the hammock for restorative or gentle yogas, teach students new ways to sense traditional alignment cues, or bring a high flying experience to your most confident and curious students who love a challenge, this training will provide you with the tools you need to set the stage for these experiences to unfold.
