LOVE Notes

K0qsgedyup6g2im0je7m

The Lunar Immersion that reinforced my mission to become an Acroyoga International instructor. Katie and Jean-Jacques held space for us to become better teachers, better friends, better humans. It was a truly remarkable experience for all in our class. We all emerged having found truly profound connections with each other, overcome lingering demons, and an understanding of how to embody love (pure, non-romantic love) through the Lunar practice. Thank you, for leading us through this journey each day! You created space that created superheroes in us all!

WHAT you need to know

What makes the AcroYoga International Teacher Training special?
We pride ourselves on 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 strong foundations, and the transformative power of our co-teaching philosophy.
What are the prerequisites?
AcroYoga International has the longest running AcroYoga Teacher Training program with an excellent safety record, so we take our prerequisites very seriously. A 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification is a plus, but is not required. We do require that you:
  • Complete at least two, preferably three, AcroYoga International Immersions (Elemental required, second is your choice, Solar or Lunar).
  • Have 100hrs of training in each: Yoga, acrobatics, and massage (this can be through classes, Immersions, festivals, or trainings)
  • Have practiced AcroYoga for at least 1 year
  • Have mastered the majority of the content in the Elements of AcroYoga manual, and the content found in the Solar and Lunar DVDs
  • Submit the names of two AcroYoga International Teachers that can provide your recommendation
  • You have shared AcroYoga with someone...anyone! We want to know that you have least tried to teach AcroYoga to someone in any setting. This doesn't mean in a studio class, but simply to a friend or family member at home, at a park... anywhere!
Not quite there yet? Consider deepening your practice. Start with the Elements of AcroYoga Manual and the AYI Elemental Immersion. Coupling these experiences with practice, and studying the Solar, Lunar, and Elemental aspects of the practice through our educational materials will prepare you best.
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. This Training is not intended to build your advanced personal practice, but to ensure you can communicate the foundations of the practice clearly and consistently to your students.
What if I don’t plan to teach?
Even if you don’t plan on teaching, you can still benefit from the Teacher Training experience. You will deepen your practice in new ways and inevitably be moved by this transformational journey and the people you meet.
What if I can’t attend the whole Training?
AcroYoga International encourages work-life balance. If you can't get away from home for the whole Training and certification, no problem! Our Training is setup in a modular format to give you more flexibility. You can attend the first module, and complete the second module at another time in the future at any other one of our global modular trainings. You will build community across the globe, while balancing your life at home.
What is the difference between a “residential” and “non-residential” Training?
Non-residential Trainings do not include accommodation. Each student is responsible for selecting and booking their own accommodation, which gives you more flexibility and allows us to make the Training available at a lower price. Our students stay at Airbnbs, hotels, hostels, or with friends/relatives. 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.
How much does it cost?
The price of the Training varies by location and format (residential vs. non-residential). If you know you want to join a Training, we encourage you to sign up early so you can take advantage of the “early bird” price. We also offer payment plans (with as little as US$500 deposit). We are committed to supporting all people and offer need-based scholarships for qualifying students. Once you are accepted, our Lead Teachers will share all the options with you.
What is the application process like?
Applying is free, and only complete applications will be considered. After acceptance, you will be asked to make a non-refundable deposit to hold your spot at the Training, and the remainder is due by the beginning of the Training. AYI Teacher Trainings fill fast, so make sure to register as soon as possible. If you have questions about whether or not you have the experience, please email us.
What language are the Trainings taught in?
Most of our Trainings are taught in English, with the exception of: Brazil, which is taught in English, Spanish, and Portuguese; and Mexico, which is taught in English and Spanish.
