Trilogy Sanctuary’s Aerial Training Program

The mission of this Aerial Yoga Training is to provide each student with the foundation to teach skillfully with compassion, safety, and integrity while honoring his or her individual voice and style.

The curriculum will guide you to integrate the hammock as a prop into your existing yoga or fitness teaching and personal practice. You will discover a new relationship with gravity, deepen your understanding of alignment, and enhance Pranic flow throughout the body. Trilogy’s aim is to fully integrate mind, body and spirit so our training will thoughtfully touch on how to guide your students towards a more mindful practice. Not only using aerial yoga for the many amazing physical benefits, but also using it as a tool for emotional growth and to deepen one’s connection to their own practice and life’s journey.

After graduating from our Aerial Yoga Training, you will have the skill and confidence to immediately teach your own well-sequenced, stimulating and creative Aerial Yoga classes. You’ll also belong to an authentic, conscious and vibrant community of fun, and sincere aerial yoga instructors from Trilogy Sanctuary Training.

Trilogy Sanctuary is a yoga alliance certified studio. Yoga alliance certifies our 200 hour yoga program. Aerial yoga is currently an unregulated form of yoga and yoga alliance does not offer certification for aerial trainings. If the aerial training is part of a 300 hour extended yoga training then that is how it can be certified, it counts as a part of the complete 500 hour training. For a stand alone Aerial certification there are actually no governing bodies that give credentials of any kind to these types of trainings.

When choosing a training, it is important to find a studio or program that is well known and has a high standard of teaching. There are many franchised programs that are very restrictive – taking a training with them means you can only teach at their franchised studios. Trilogy’s aerial certification is very well rounded and has no restrictions on what or where you can teach. It will give you the tools to teach a Level 1 aerial yoga class anywhere in the world.

Trilogy Sanctuary is one of the leading Aerial Yoga studios in California so it is a highly recognized certification with very high standards. We only accept students who we feel will become competent teachers, which is one reason why we only accept those with a 200 hour yoga, pilates or PT certificate. We also require previous aerial yoga experience. Lastly, our training is one of the few trainings that gives you experience in teaching real students, in our community classes. This is an invaluable part of the training process and is essential to creating a good teacher.

If you do decide to choose us to certify you, we offer support from start to finish, to ensure that all of our students feel confident in teaching a safe class to all students.


Applicants must have a 200 hour yoga instructor certification (RYT), Personal Training certification (CPT), Massage Therapist certification (RMT), or Physical Therapist certification (PT). ***We do make exceptions for those who have other types of teaching, or therapist qualifications or experience, please contact us to discuss!

Must have completed a minimum of 10 aerial yoga classes prior to the teacher training program start date.
