PROGRESSIVE

CURRICULUM

Our teaching methodology draws on hundreds of years of collective wisdom from yoga, acrobatics, gymnastics, and Thai massage. We have distilled this wisdom into a progressive methodology that creates an accessible, fun path for students to reach challenging goals with a strong foundation. When you understand how to build skills step-by-step, you will truly empower every student to access their potential.

TEACHING

MASTERY

Beyond the sequences and poses, we dive deep into how to support your students in the role of a Teacher. AcroYoga Teachers are great leaders, adept in reading the energy, needs, safety, and challenges of any group. Your ability to lead a group (anywhere from an AcroYoga class to a corporate meeting) will be honed and refined, and your upgraded communication skills will serve you in any environment.

WHAT'S it Like?

Our team of highly qualified instructors builds upon decades of experience to support the refinement of your practice, as a student and as a Teacher.

WHAT you need to know

WHAT MAKES THE ACROYOGA INTERNATIONAL TEACHER TRAINING SPECIAL?
AcroYoga International is the longest running AcroYoga teacher certification program in the world. With over 1000 licensed Teachers across every continent, we truly are a global community. We pride ourselves in the quality of our curriculum: the seamless integration of high-level acrobatics with flying therapeutics and Thai massage, the progressive development of skills to create a strong foundation, and the transformative power of our co-teaching philosophy. Our curriculum is always being refined and expanded as the collective brilliance of our Lead Teachers continues to evolve.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE TRAINING?
This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes:
  • AcroYoga Teacher Training instruction for 10+ hours each day
  • AcroYoga Teacher Training manual
  • AcroYoga Teacher additional benefits complimentary for a year*
  • Certificate of Completion*
  • Food and accommodation (residential trainings only)
* For students who successfully complete the full training.
WHAT ARE THE PRE-REQUISITES?
We ask that Teacher trainees invest significantly in their personal AcroYoga practice before applying to become a Teacher. We believe deeply that embodied wisdom is crucial to safe and effective teaching. This means we expect you to:
  • Have practiced AcroYoga for at least one year
  • Have completed an AcroYoga Foundation Course (live or online)
  • Have attended one or two AcroYoga Immersions
  • Have significant experience in yoga (RYT 200 is a plus!)
  • Have at least 100 additional hours training in acrobatics
  • Have at least 100 additional hours training in a hands-on healing modality (Thai massage, massage, reiki, etc.)
  • Have taken classes with a certified AYI Teacher who can provide a recommendation
  • Have taught someone (anyone!) AcroYoga
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The prices will vary depending on the type and location. We host trainings all over the world; Some are all-inclusive with food and accommodation (residential), and some are not (non-residential). Please check the details in each Training listing for exact prices and early bird discount and rush pricing deadlines. The sooner you sign up, the better!
DO YOU OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS OR PAYMENT PLANS?
Yes! We know that a Teacher Training is a significant financial investment, so we offer easy and flexible payment plans that enable you to pay your Training in affordable automatic monthly payments. We also offer need-based scholarships for each Training. In 2018, we awarded 31 students US$11,900 in scholarships! Although we do not award full scholarships, we do go above and beyond to accommodate competent and passionate trainees who truly cannot afford the full cost of the Training. Once you are accepted to a Training, ask us for the Scholarship application.
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THE WHOLE TRAINING?
AcroYoga International encourages work-life balance. If you can't get away for the whole training, no worries! We’ve set our trainings up in a modular form to give you more flexibility. You can take module 1, and complete module 2 at another one of our global modular trainings. You will build community across the globe while balancing your life at home.
* Please note that this option may not be available for certain residential trainings. Please check with us when making your plans.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESIDENTIAL AND NON-RESIDENTIAL?
A non-residential training does not include food and accommodation. Each student is responsible for selecting and booking their own. Once you are accepted, we will support you through a private Facebook group so you can meet and arrange accommodation with your future flight partners and teaching colleagues.
IS THIS TRAINING RIGHT FOR ME?
Our Teacher Trainings are for all people who want to learn the AcroYoga curriculum to deepen their practice and ready themselves to teach AcroYoga effectively, safely, eloquently and creatively. In other words, Teacher Trainings focus on preparing you to teach AcroYoga. Although it’s not required for you to want to formally teach AcroYoga, it’s important to understand that our Training is not intended to build your advanced personal practice, but to ensure that you can communicate the foundations of the practice clearly and consistently to students.
