Aerial Yoga Training in Elba

Aerial Yoga is the newest trend in yoga. Elba Yoga offers a training course starting in April. We teach in small groups (max. 5 students). If you are already experienced in yoga and want to qualify in Aerial yoga – this is your course.

When you’re suspended in the swing, typical yoga poses become easier and more comfortable to achieve. You’ll be able to stretch further, which is great for relieving compressed joints and correcting muscle imbalances. You’ll also gain greater flexibility, better traction of the spine, and improve your circulation through a series of well supported grounded and hanging poses.

Our yoga course allows you to enjoy a dynamic variety of styles. Become part of this amazing journey. In our 7 days of teaching and practice you will get deep into the world of Aerial Yoga and will be able to teach your own class after.

It’s actually easy to learn and very restorative. A new study from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that women who did three 75-minute aerial yoga classes a week for six weeks lost an average of two and a half pounds, 2 percent body fat, and about one inch from their waist.

One apartment called Scirocco (60 qm) has one bedroom and another open bedroom on a balcony accessible with stairs. There is a huge living room with fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The apartment can be used by 4-6 people, because there is a bedcoach in the spacious living room. Another second bathroom is combined with the interior yoga shala next door and can be used if the apartment is used by six people.

The second smaller apartment, called Ponente (25 qm), has one bedroom, a living room, bathroom and kitchen. We use it for two people, maybe a couple with a child who could sleep on the little bedsofa in the living room.

Featuring a living room with a sofa, as well as a fully equipped kitchenette, each unit has a private bathroom with bidet. Each unit features a terrace and has a satellite flat-screen TV, as well as air conditioning.

The whole house has AC (warm and cold) and free WiFi. We are getting our energy through solar panels and we have our own source of 100% tested drinking water. The quality of our water has the perfect standard.

We have two yoga shalas. One big outdoor shala where you can enjoy real sun salutations with the rising sun every morning. Situated around the outdoor shala, we have herbal plants and an own garden where we grow our own food. The garden is huge and has wonderful palm trees, fruit trees and other plants. There is a barbecue area and different relaxing places with hammocks and sunchairs as well as sundbeds. The sun is shining from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. and the old trees provide you with nice, shadowy areas.

We have an indoor yoga shala, so we are giving regular yoga courses all year round.

More information about the instructor:

“Stay in the forward bend Pada Hastasana and it will change your life!” Christel read this in the first yoga book she picked up in 1995.

She laughed and thought, let’s see! Her son was born and she lived in a wonderful but stressful job of a global reporter, desperately looking for an anchor in her restless world.

What followed were several yoga teacher training that has changed her life sustainably and her Reiki Master with Marina in Thailand completed the holistic path Christel is following.

She started her my first Yoga Teachers training 20 years ago with Power Yoga inventor Bryan Kest in Santa Monica, California, the yoga guru of stars like Madonna and Sting. Bryan was literally her catapult from the western to the eastern world. Power Yoga was just the beginning that gave her the first access to a very athletic yoga. But that cannot be everything, she thought and set out for India and Nepal.

In an Ashram in India (Kerala) she graduated in Therapeutic Yoga with Guru Saji. Added to this was another degree in YinYoga and her Reiki Master and latest Flying Yoga or Areal Yoga Teachers Training.

“Christel created her own style from this colorful yoga world with many great inspirations, but it always adapts to the group. She likes to teach in nature, on beautiful beaches, on magical rocks or in the Yoga Shala of her Villa Shanti on the beautiful Island of Elba where she does live most of the year. ”

She completely turned her life upside down. And she is a very lucky person to discover the healing path of Reiki. First Christel did heal herself after a heavy riding accident and then she did help her mother with Reiki till she died. To love yourself and heal yourself is incredibly important. Only if you love yourself you can give love and healing to others.

Today she is living on the magical island of Elba in Tuscany. Christel opened the first Yoga & Meditation & Reiki Center in January 2018. With an indoor yoga Shala Indian style. The outdoor Yoga Shala surrounded by a beautiful garden with its own vegetables, herbs, and citrus fruits is made of wood and at about 7 o’clock in the morning during sun salutation the SUN comes up in all imaginable colors.

It’s a magical place she lives with her Italian partner Alberto (great cook). And every morning, when she gets up with the sun, she is giving Reiki to her trees, the plants, the animals and human beings. And with gratitude she is bending over- Pada Hastasana.
