“Suspension Yoga™ is an emerging aerial movement modality with
a versatility that lends itself to a wide range of yoga class settings.”
Suspension Yoga™ alters our relationship to gravity and creates a whole new way of experiencing the body. Learn how to move through space with grace and mindfulness and renew your vital energy through introducing mobility, fluidity and playfulness into your life and that of your clients.
Discover a whole new dimension to your yoga practice by taking it to flight!
More and more people are being drawn daily to Suspension Yoga™ because of its many benefits and just how wonderful it makes them feel. However, currently there are simply not enough qualified instructors to meet this rapidly rising demand.
First and foremost it is fun, so no matter what the age of your clientele it will keep them coming back. Classes emphasizing spinal alignment and postural awareness are perfect for children and their developing bones. The therapeutic benefits of low impact joint mobility and spinal decompression can be tailored towards classes for the elderly. Practitioners at every level can access the benefits of asanas like handstand, headstand, arm balancing postures, and enhanced back-bends – all of which can otherwise be unattainable and possibly even dangerous. It’s also conducive to rehabilitative classes, allowing those who have sustained injuries to gently and safely reintegrate the benefits of physical activity into their lives.
Instructor-trainees of Suspension Yoga™ will become familiar with the basics of teaching Suspension Yoga™ and learn to instruct from a whole new perspective. Experiencing gravity in a new way can be both liberating and, at times, a little scary. Emphasis is placed on integration of proper form, support, stabilization, and safety throughout the duration of each exercise as well as effective spotting techniques for clients of varying abilities. In addition, you will learn how to confidently coach students out of their comfort zone and into the freedom and exhilaration that exists on the other side keeping them coming back for more.
With the YogiGym® Suspension Swing, clients at any level or age can learn to use gravity as their greatest tool. By implementing simple, customized strategies, you can teach students to release muscular tension, relieve chronic back pain increase joint mobility, enhance core strength, improve coordination, and slow down the aging process…all while having a great time!
Adding a Suspension Yoga™ Certification to your list of qualifications will enhance your professional recognition for being educated about leading training strategies. When effectively integrated into a full exercise regimen, the playful techniques and remarkable results are reported to increase client loyalty and training consistency.
Suspension Yoga™ is a style of aerial movement that incorporates yoga with gravity-resistance training, spinal therapy and aerobatics. Although similarities exist with other aerial movement modalities, there are also significant differences that rest mainly the equipment used; Anti-Gravity hammocks or “silks” once hung, cannot be readjusted easily during a class. The 14 height settings of the YogiGym® Suspension Sling makes it a much more customizable apparatus that provides easy adjustments for a wider variety of poses and exercises. The fabric of the Anti-Gravity hammocks consist of a stretchy poly knit fabric that can constrict circulation and result in bruising where as the breathable parachute material and generous foam cushion support of the YogiGym® offers a much more comfortable inversion experience. In addition, the YogiGym’s handles offer added stability and off-loading capabilities, making it far more versatile, user friendly and safe .
The Course will be conducted by International Suspension Yoga Master and Director of THE FLYING YOGI® STUDIO in Canada, Beatrix Montanile.

“I am so happy that I took my training with you! I have been looking at video’s online and other products and nothing compares to the training you provided.” LBM
“The 36 hrs teachers training certification is an awesome course. Not only did I learn so much, I walked away 5 lbs lighter and a couple of inches taller. My balance has improved and I’m standing straight up and I feel great. Thank you Beatrix!” JW FERGUS KICKBOXING
“The training was very detailed and well planned out. I’m glad I was able to make it out from Nova Scotia and am excited for the possibilities moving forward both in my personal teaching and therapy practice as well as the idea of introducing more studios to the system. The applications are endless and I believe it will be a powerful tool.” AA
“Since the intensive training we went through during teacher training, I am surprised at how well my back has held up over so many hours of training, and how I actually feel strong and really good. I have never in the last 8 years since my back surgery, ever been able to recover enough to not only play a soccer game the next day, and attend a core class and then stay longer then the planned class, and leave feeling good!!! The fact that I am able to be supported so I don’t strain my back, yet still be able to exercise the areas of my body that I need to work on to help my back on a daily basis is truly amazing. All I think about throughout my day is when I have the chance to go up in my Yogigym® and invert to give my spine a break!… Its sort of like my cup of coffee… When I have my morning coffee I feel good, I don’t get a headache, I feel focused and I feel ready to start my day….. Well my YogiGym has become my very large cup of morning coffee… It truly makes my body and mind feel amazing!” CP
“The whole group was really friendly and positive. Their experience truly helped me improve my practice as a result of their helpful feedback. Beatrix’s thorough knowledge and love for the practice made the course fun, exciting and, totally complete!” PP
