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. On one hand, aerial is easier than normal yoga because it supports one’s body weight and allows beginners to stretch more, attain correct alignment and do advanced poses. We encourage students to take it easy and rest.
We do not use silks or hammocks, but do many of the same poses like anti-gravity yoga. Our swings are a superior unique design made with yoga mat inserts for precision fit and comfort. The swings fit above the waist and below the buttocks, which is perfect for sitting and inversions. They easily roll up for extra cushion on the hips in forward folds and swinging flows.
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 :)
Students receive a certificate from Ulu Yoga (Edward Pawlak), who is a continued education provider through Yoga Alliance. This is the highest international certification available for aerial yoga. Students who have already completed a 200hr yoga training course approved by Yoga Alliance can register their 50hr online as additional training hours. Our students teach all over the world, many are not members of Yoga Alliance. Every country and studio or gym or resort has different rules and requirements about who can teach.
