Wainani Wellness’ Aerial Pilates teacher training offers a systematic program with a creative approach to teaching Pilates, using a suspended fabric hammock as your training equipment. Created by Wainani Arnold, the founder of Wainani Wellness Center, this training program teaches you to mindfully lead students of all backgrounds to feel safe, successful, invigorated and inspired to move.
This dynamic practice gives you the constant opportunity to activate your core stabilizers. Why? The hammock you are using is suspended from a swivel point on the ceiling, while you usually are in contact with the ground. Technically speaking, the swivel point hammock provides you with fixed yet multi-directional and multi-planar stimulation.
Additionally, this suspended form of Pilates allows the pull of gravity to give you traction for extra lengthening. You will learn to use the hammock at various heights and settings to allow the student’s whole body to sense the full spectrum of sensation, from relaxed and weightless to strong and grounded. Students can get the benefits of both core stabilizing and muscle lengthening without ever leaving the ground, although Wainani offers inversion options for those ready for it.
In this 40 Hour Teacher Training you will receive:
- Manual of Exercises
- Sequences, and modifications to consider when developing your own unique aerial pilates lesson plans
