Advanced Aerial Yoga Teacher Training
Friday-Sunday 13-15 October 2023
After having held 14 Aerial Yoga Teacher Trainings, Sisse is proud and excited to present the first Advanced Aerial Yoga Teacher Training in Denmark. It is open to Aerial Yoga teachers from any school, or advanced aerial students. In this training, we will be going deeper into Tricks, Flips and Flow, and how to teach it with safety and fun. At Kula Yoga we have plenty of space and high ceilings to play under.
Flowing through the hammock is just amazing, there is no better feeling. But Flow in Aerial yoga can feel a lot harder to do, than in fx. Vinyasa. In this training we will work on how to sequence a good flow, and build it up so the students enjoy it, and don't get a headache. Many little parts go into a good aerial flow, and the progressions, supporting poses, and build up, are all super important.
Adding dance elements to the flow can feel out of the comfort zone for many of us, however, in order to create balance and breaks in an advanced flow, adding dance moves is a great idea. Getting over the awkwardness with dancy elements is wonderful, and you get to a point where the arms, pointy toes and backbends all add to the flowy feeling (as well as improving your flexibility).
Tricks and Flips
We are going to go deeper into tricks and flips, how to teach them safely, and in a way that encourages and empowers your students. The progressions are incredibly important, you really can't skip a step in advanced aerial yoga. You will learn specific progression for forward flips, back flips, climbing higher and flipping and how to spot them, using hand-on adjustments. Having a system and a deeper understanding of the biomechanics of flipping, is invaluable when you are teaching it.
What do you want to work on? You will bring tricks from Youtube or Instagram, that are challenging for you, and we will work on them together and learn them (if they are realistic for your body).
Sequencing for Advanced classes
Sequencing for advanced classes is different than for beginner level. You can start doing inversions right away, in fact, your students probably crave it when they enter class. Your students will need more conditioning, and you must do a thorough warm-up. Mixing the strengthening with the relaxing, the fun with the functional, in a balanced way, takes a lot of consideration and skill. Keeping the classes fresh, requires variation and themes. We will work from templates that makes sure your classes are well-rounded and keep the students coming.
Flexibility and Strength
Improving flexibility is always fun, and you will learn how to do this effectively and safely by using modern methods focusing on the nervous system. We will use skills from contortion and mobility and do a lot of active stretching, sneaky strength training and proper technique. Sisse has been deep into functional yoga for many years and knows all the tricks. (Btw. she is NOT naturally flexible, all that splits action is from functional yoga).
Obviously, working in the hammock on an advanced level requires strength, and you will leave with a program to improve your strength and flexibility going forward.

"The first time I tried Aerial Yoga it was to try this new gimmick with yoga in a hammock. I thought it would be fun and would not have imagined that I would be weeping like a child in the hammock at the end of class. Aerial yoga is more than just fun, it's deeply releasing and profoundly transformative, and true yoga. I love it."

“For 4 days I practiced ariel yoga with Sisse Siegumfeldt in Blue Sky Yoga. It's amazing what a piece of fabric can do. A prop for immersions and in yoga poses, for muscle training, strength performance, and total relaxation. The game has just begun and there are many fun, totally strenuous and utterly relaxing hours to look forward to. Thank you for our journey through these days. You are super beautiful and skilled and kept us well motivated🙂 ”
“Thank you so much for the most wonderful education, it has been hard, fun, and just wonderful <3 You teach with great knowledge, skill and patience, and I am deeply envious of your playful ease in the slings, haha. That's where I will get to! I feel really well equipped to teach safely in Aerial Yoga, and have a huge back catalogue to draw on, so I can do varied programs. The manual is worth its weight in gold !! Thanks.“
