My Vision...

I've been an Aerial Hammock Teacher for almost a decade and in that time I've sought out every available source of knowledge and every possible avenue for personal growth. As I tasted the offerings available to me as a student I began to realise that almost exclusively the Aerial Yoga classes were all about the 'Aerial' with the 'Yoga' barely featuring.  This is something I aim to change.  

For me Aerial Yoga is a yoga class with an aerial sling/hammock as a prop.  It's a yoga class without fancy made up names.  It's a yoga class that includes Sanskrit and breath practice and Dharma talks. The Aerial Hammock extends the practice and supports the practice but doesn't define the practice.

 

That being said, I certainly don't ignore the amazing versatility of the Aerial Hammock, which is why over the years I have continued my learning and exploration and offer trainings in Dance Hammock, Body Conditioning and Therapeutics. My main goal is always to fuel passion with knowledge.  

This is my vision for my teacher trainings and my classes.

As a new studio owner, my business was growing and I was in need of some more teachers. I wanted excellent teachers trained by the best in the business so I invited Chantelle Rawlings to host an Aerial Teacher Training Course at my studio in Geelong.

From the very first interaction, Chantelle was delightful to work with. Accommodating, caring, professional and an expert in all things Aerial Yoga! Chantelle covered two certificate levels in a week-long Intensive Teacher Training for myself and nine students and it surpassed all my expectations.

Chantelle’s in-depth knowledge of postural alignment, refined and concise verbal cues, modifications and comprehensive discussions around student needs, combined with her magical and captivating personality made it an incredible learning experience for all involved.

I could not recommend Chantelle highly enough and am proud to say my teachers were trained by the one and only Yogagirl!
