Aerial Fit® Teacher Trainings
We’ve spent years developing, testing, and evolving our teaching curriculum and practices and we’re proud of the progressions we’ve developed that grow beginner aerialists up into strong, confident, and knowledgeable movers in the air. As of this writing, Aerial Fit’s founders have more than 10,000 hours of direct teaching experience in aerial arts, including aerial silks, aerial sling, static trapeze, aerial hoop, aerial yoga, handstands, and more. The proof is in our students…visit our Student Showcases page to see our students in action.
Acceptance into our teacher training program is by application only, including required video skills. To prepare to attend a teacher training in the future, please train with great coaches in your area and work to develop a strong, confident, controlled practice yourself. This is the absolute minimum required foundation to develop before attempting to instruct.
Our Aerial Silks, Aerial Sling, Aerial Hoop, and Static Trapeze teacher training programs are currently open only to Aerial Fit students, however, we will post updates here when available.

About the program
The Unnata Aerial Yoga Teacher Training program is a comprehensive 8-day (65 hour) training designed for current yoga instructors that teaches the how and why of integrating the aerial yoga hammock into their current yoga knowledge. It may be used as continuing education for current yoga instructors, whether or not you have interest in teaching aerial yoga. Unnata Aerial Yoga uses the aerial hammock as a tool to explore and inform floor asanas, and in this program we will examine over 100 different postures and how the floor and air postures inspire each other. You will also learn how to put together an aerial yoga class, safety and spotting techniques, rigging for aerial yoga, and how to work with a variety of populations.
This course contains a lot of material packed into a short amount of time. Days will be long (but fun) and intense on your body and mind. Unnata Aerial Yoga has built a reputation on quality instruction, and in order to receive a teaching certificate, you must take 100% of the training and pass the final exam.
Unnata Aerial Yoga was developed by Michelle Dortignac, and Jordan Anderson is one of only three Official Unnata® Course Leaders based in the US. You can learn more about the program on the founder’s website here.
