Aerial Essentials is a 50hr instructor training centred on the aerial hammock apparatus. This soft apparatus is adaptable to the body’s shape and can mimic the natural movement of skin, fascia, muscle and bone rhythms. The whole-body sensory experience is often described as a relaxing sense of flying, floating or being suspended in 3-dimensional space. In addition, the aerial hammock can be applied to achieve diverse gravity-assisted and gravity-resisted conditioning exercises which improve neuroplasticity, movement acquisition, mobility and dynamic stability. The aerial hammock also offers unique therapeutic benefits for the joints and viscera through the safe use of progressive traction and decompressive inversions.
Aerial Essentials 50HR Course will equip instructors/teachers with comprehensive instructional, theoretical and practical knowledge to be leave competent and confident to deliver effective group classes.
The training is comprised of 40hrs of practical training (delivered live and interactive live-streamed) and a preliminary 10 hours online theoretical training covering:
