Who is this course for?

Aerial Pilates Teacher Training for Aerialists, Pilates Teachers, and/or enthusiasts!

What is Aerial Pilates

We use the aerial hammock apparatus to guide you through the perfect fusion of aerial arts and the Pilates method.  Created and taught by an aerialist and Pilates teacher.

Aerial Pilates with Air Control Pilates® involves practising Pilates exercises in the air by suspending the body, or parts of the body in an aerial hammock. The hammock is suspended close to the ground at the height of the hips to the lower leg. Beginners practising aerial Pilates start by practising exercises on the floor with the assistance of the aerial hammock, then gradually advance to exercises that require full body suspension.
