Why teach suspension yoga

More and more people are being drawn daily to Suspension yoga™ because of its many benefits and just how wonderful it makes them feel. However, currently, there are simply not enough qualified instructors to meet this rapidly rising demand.

Suspension yoga™ is beneficial for almost anybody. First and foremost it is fun, so no matter what the age of your clientele it will keep them coming back. Classes emphasizing spinal alignment and postural awareness are perfect for children and their developing bones. The therapeutic benefits of low impact joint mobility and spinal decompression can be tailored towards classes for the elderly. Practitioners at every level can access the benefits of asanas like handstand, headstand, arm balancing postures, and enhanced back-bends - all of which can otherwise be unattainable and possibly even dangerous. It’s also conducive to rehabilitative classes, allowing those who have sustained injuries to gently and safely reintegrate the benefits of physical activity into their lives.

Instructor-trainees of Suspension yoga™ will become familiar with the basics of teaching Suspension yoga™ and learn to instruct from a whole new perspective.

Experiencing gravity in a new way can be both liberating and, at times, a little scary. Emphasis is placed on the integration of proper form, support, stabilization, and safety throughout the duration of each exercise as well as effective spotting techniques for clients of varying abilities. In addition, you will learn how to confidently coach students out of their comfort zone and into the freedom and exhilaration that exists on the other side keeping them coming back for more.

With the YogiGym® Suspension swing, clients at any level or age can learn to use gravity as their greatest tool. By implementing simple, customized strategies, you can teach students to release muscular tension, relieve chronic back pain increase joint mobility, enhance core strength, improve coordination, and slow down the aging process…all while having a great time! Adding a Suspension Yoga™ certification to your list of qualifications will enhance your professional recognition for being educated about leading training strategies. When effectively integrated into a full exercise regimen, playful techniques, and remarkable results are reported to increase client loyalty and training consistency.

How does Suspension yoga™ training differ from Aerial or anti-gravity yoga?

Suspension yoga™ is a style of aerial movement that incorporates yoga with gravity-resistance training, spinal therapy, and aerobatics. Although similarities exist with other aerial movement modalities, there are also significant differences that rest mainly the equipment used

Anti-gravity hammocks or “silks” once hung, cannot be readjusted easily during a class. The 14 height settings of the YogiGym® Suspension sling makes it a much more customizable apparatus that provides easy adjustments for a wider variety of poses and exercises. The fabric of the Anti-Gravity hammocks consists of a stretchy poly knit fabric that can constrict circulation and result in bruising whereas the breathable parachute material and generous foam cushion support of the YogiGym® offers a much more comfortable inversion experience.

In addition, the YogiGym’s handles offer added stability and off-loading capabilities, making it far more versatile, user-friendly and safe.

Certification requirements

Graduation requirements are: RYT certification at the 200 hour level or the equivalent in another professional movement modality; attendance of all 36 hours of in-class training; completion of logged 15 hour practicum and apprentice times; a minimum of six class practice sessions with a certified Suspension Yoga instructor (alternative options will be provided for out of town students); submission of a 60 minute video of class or one on one instruction demonstrating an adequate knowledge in all areas of Suspension yoga™. A 100 USD testing fee will apply.

All registrants must successfully complete the course, the 15-hour practicum and the 60 presentation exam in order to qualify for certification. Any registrant missing 30 minutes or more of class time will be required to make it up after the course through paid private sessions or paid review at the next scheduled training.
