What to look for in an Aerial Pilates or Aerial Yoga Teacher Training course


How do you know if a course is good?  

Does it provides you with ALL of the relevant safety

information you need to know?


Hi, I'm Debbie, Founder of Air Control Pilates.  As an Aerialist of 16 years and Pilates Teacher of over 20 years.  My Dad's a retired Health and Safety Executive. He encouraged me to be adventurous and safe.  

I'm passionate to educate, in particular, Aerial hammock users (both Aerial Yoga & Aerial Pilates). To increase the safety standards and knowledge, dramatically over the next few years.  


How do you know, what you don't know?

There is unfortunately a lot of unsafe and inappropriate equipment being offered within our industry.  Therefore, if users are not knowledgeable of key information to look for or know, the misuse of this equipment will continue.  

If you're still reading this, great,

Education is empowerment and key to safety too

Safe comes first.  This is the most important part, before we even touch the hammocks. Then, we look at appropriate exercises, teaching skills, spotting techniques, structuring and more!


Here's some guidance on how to choose a teacher training for your Aerial Pilates or Aerial Yoga training needs.

1. Expertise: Look for a trainer or creator who has relevant qualifications and expertise around both Pilates and Aerial arts (Trapeze, silks/tissu, hoop/lyra, rope/corde Lisse, invented apparatus & more! ). This ensures they have the key skills and knowledge to integrate both powerful forms of movement and to teach Aerial Pilates safely and effectively.  This includes rigging awareness and important safety factors of setting up and purchasing appropriate equipment. 

2. Experience and reputation: Consider the experience and reputation of the company or trainer. Look for reviews, testimonials, or recommendations from other colleagues or professionals in your community. A company or trainer with a consistent track record and a strong reputation is more likely to provide high-quality training and support.

3. Syllabus and content:   Look into the curriculum and content covered on the course by the company or trainer. Ensure that the training program covers techniques, safety guidelines, and teaching skills. Look for programs that provide a well-rounded education and practical experience to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to teach Aerial Pilates safe and effectively.

4. Support and resources: Consider the level of support and resources provided by the company or trainer. Look for companies or trainers who offer ongoing support, mentorship, or access to a community of practitioners. This can be valuable for continued learning, networking, and professional development in the field of both Aerial and Pilates individually and Aerial Pilates as a whole.

5. Compatibility and values: Ultimately, choose a company or trainer that aligns with your values.  Consider factors such as teaching approach, communication style, and the overall appeal of the training. It's important to feel comfortable and motivated during your training journey.
