Why train at the Breathing Space?

The Breathing Space is an established Aerial Studio, with a rich all-year-round curriculum led by co-founder Christine Mason (ERYT500, Aerial, Yin, Pre/post Natal, Chair). After discovering the joy and benefits of aerial, Christine trained with Teaching Aerial Yoga London – who deliver expert training in London and across Europe.

Be more than an Aerial Instructor

Aerial Yoga Training with Richard and Agne at the Breathing Space, will help you make the transition from an instructor -where classes have to be more rigid and controlled – to a genuine teacher – where you have the skills to work more creatively and spontaneously with your students.  You will also gain knowledge of their bespoke sequences which have been tried and tested on real people in real classes over many years, proven to retain aerial yoga clients who build a love for this practice.

A holistic approach to Aerial Yoga

Richard and Agne, from Teaching Aerial Yoga London, specialise in 75-90 minute, holistic, Aerial Yoga classes for beginners to advanced students. The aerial silks are well known for facilitating spinal traction and deep assisted stretching which is wonderful in itself, but that is only part of what you can do with them. Over 9 years of developing a unique teaching approach, Richard and Agne have pioneered a wide range of uses and techniques that can give people a more complete and enriching yoga experience.

On this course you will learn:

  • Our general level class sequence that is designed to be accessible and adaptable. It flows and is both easy to teach and easy to adapt for different levels of physical strength and flexibility. It works well as an experience for most beginners and intermediate level students. A good way of thinking about this sequence is as a ‘seed class’ from which you will, as you develop in confidence and experience, be able to grow your own classes.
  • The principles of successful class structuring. How to create well-balanced classes and avoid common pitfalls like over-stimulating or alienating the people in your class. The swing is a powerful tool and needs to be used skilfully to bring your students to a balanced state of being opened physically, soothed emotionally and calmed mentally. This takes experience of teaching this particular style of Yoga. You can benefit from our experience to avoid many of the mistakes that junior teachers make.
  • Communication that is inclusive and encouraging, and that helps to create a strong bond between you and the clients. We also draw on our Thai Yoga Massage experience to give you some really useful adjustments you can incorporate into classes to enhance the teacher-student connection. Touch, well used, is a really powerful teaching aid.
  • How to incorporate mindfulness and relaxation techniques into your teaching. Benefit from our experience with mindfulness and meditation to add depth to your teaching. There are some simple techniques that people absolutely love. Using them, particularly at the beginning and end of classes will give people a more positive experience that they remember and want to repeat – with you!
  • How to use the Aerial Yoga swings to their full emotional potential – particularly in areas like reducing anxiety, enhancing feelings of wellbeing and creating mental focus.
  • How to use the swing creatively and playfully within your classes for a more memorable experience and to make yourself stand out as an innovative teacher.
  • Swing set-ups, swing safety and installation.
