ULU Aerial yoga is a mix of yoga, acrobatics, pilates and physical therapy. Our training focuses developing teaching skills and giving students a wide variety of styles and unique workshops plus fun collaborative creative activities.

No previous yoga experience is required. Our students range from total beginners and seniors searching for pain relief and healing to advanced aerial yogis searching for something new and exciting. Ages 18-65.
Aerial is easier than normal yoga because it supports one’s body weight and allows beginners to attain correct alignment and do advanced poses. Only one class, aerial acrobatics, has advanced poses and sequences, but even that most beginners can do. ULU encourages students to take it easy and rest, but also to challenge themselves to build strength and grace.
ULU emphasizes correct alignment and absolute safety with clearly scripted step by step instruction. All rigging and equipment and of the highest standards. No student is pushed to do anything they do not want to.
ULU Yoga Swings are a unique design made with padded cushions for greater comfort, support, and precision than most hammocks, silks and belts, although we do many of the same poses like anti-gravity.
Aerial is fun and gentle way to get strong, relieve pain and heal the body. Swings support the body’s weight, enhance our range of motion and allow us to stretch deeper and work a greater range of back and core muscles. Aerial offers great therapeutic benefits. We use gravity to decompress the spine, realign the vertebrae, relieve disc and nerve pressure, which causes pain. Most importantly, it’s fun and makes people smile :). Honestly, so many students say it is the best time of their life.
Students receive a 50-hour Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Certificate from Ulu Yoga, who is a 200-hour Registered School with Yoga Alliance. Many students get jobs teaching with just this, every country and studio has their own requirements. Yoga Alliance members receive a Certificate of Continuing Education.
