Each morning you will practice a meticulously crafted sequence developed over five years based on the feedback of thousands of students. Classes mix aerial with traditional yoga, pilates, acrobatics and physical therapy. The practice is suitable for beginners, but includes advanced options to test your limits.
Analyze individual poses to master correct technique and form. Study alignment, adjustments, transitions, sequencing, common mistakes, safety precautions, beginner and advanced variations, assessing student needs. Also practice teaching the poses to gain experience.
Each day you will practice teaching other students and get feedback to gain experience and confidence. For your final exam you will design an original 75 minute class and teach it to one other student. Don’t worry if you have never taught before. Just do your best and have fun.
Each day you will receive a 1 hour aerial restorative healing session to decompress the spine, relax the body, release tension and rejuvenate your soul. These classes mix aerial with meditation, physical therapy, yin yoga, sound healing, essential oils, mantras and other techniques.
Mix aerial and acro using swings to suspend flyers while you and your partner safely find balance and alignment. The swing gives you support to easily master basic poses like bird, folding leaf and throne. You will also explore advanced poses and creative new variations. (1 class)
Learn to synchronize aerial sequences in pairs then coordinate as a group to choreograph an artistic performance mixing aerial, acro and dance. Then use body paint and UV lights to create a blacklight show. It’s a lot of fun, but also challenging to work together in harmony. (1 class)
Learn to make a bamboo tripod and do aerial on the beach. Take pictures flying over the water. Receive instructions on how to organize groups, give event demonstrations, conduct short performances and boost your social media. (1 class)
Before starting this course you must complete 15 hours of online studies. ULU Yoga provides videos for anatomy, philosophy, teaching methodology, class design and physical practice. For the physical practice you can do either regular hatha/vinyasa yoga or aerial yoga.
As a special bonus you may join ULU Yoga’s daily live classes on zoom. There are morning and evening sessions to accommodate international students. Classes are a mix of Q&A and physical practice covering all subjects from our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

The most breathtaking and life-changing experience of my life! I started with the 50-Hr aerial teacher training, but soon the wonderful people of this yoga teacher training program healed my soul and I couldn’t believe it but the magic was operating. I had to extend my stay in order to complete the full 200-Hr TTC and that was the best decision! Thank you endlessly for creating this opportunity for us! ULU Yoga isn’t only gonna give you the ability to become a multi style yoga teacher but they hand you the key to love in abundance! They’ve changed me and the way I perceive life and its surroundings! No money in the world can pay off what ULU Yoga and they’re wonderful teachers have given to me!

Kaiti Brauer (USA)
Best decision I ever made. I chose to do my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ulu Yoga because of the variety of styles they offer. Learning aerial & acro (alongside Hatha, vinyasa and yin) was so much fun! Aerial is my absolute favorite, I even ended up adding on my 50 hour Aerial Training with Ulu! I gained all the confidence and skills needed to successfully teach classes! I learned from knowledgeable teachers & I made friends with people from all over the world! I highly recommend Ulu!
