A 60 hour
Aerial Yoga Teacher Training
With Sofia-Miranda Soldatou
This November at Nataraja Yoga Center in Athens, Greece, registered yoga, pilates, dance teachers and trainers, as well as experienced aerial yoga practitioners, will have the opportunity to participate in the second Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Sofia-Miranda Soldatou.
This training course is a result of many years of practice and love with the hammock, teaching and Yoga in particular. It has been in the works for many years and it is taking place in a difficult time, but it is promising to offer valuable resources and knowledge to a starting aerial yoga teacher, as well as an experienced practitioner who wants to raise his/her practice to a higher level. All these will take place in the warm and friendly environment of Nataraja Yoga Center, Athens, Greece, taking every safety precaution due to the special circumstances we live in.
The duration of the training course is 60 hours, divided equally in the four (4) weekends of November 2022 as follows:
Saturday the 5th, 14:00-20:00 and Sunday the 6th, 09:00-18:00
Saturday the 12th, 14:00-20:00 and Sunday the 13th, 09:00-18:00
Saturday the 19th, 14:00-20:00 and Sunday the 20th, 09:00-18:00
Saturday the 26th, 14:00-20:00 and Sunday the 27th, 09:00-18:00
The training includes:
- Introduction to Yoga and aerial Yoga.
- Code of ethics for a teacher, Yamas-Niyamas.
- Basic anatomy, particularities of aerial Yoga.
- Breathing, alignment and adjustments.
- Poses – Asanas.
- Class structure, sequencing.
- Safety guidelines.
- Technical features, installing, fabrics and other components.
- Manual and audio-visual material.
- Teaching an actual class.
This training’s goal is to bestow knowledge and experience to our new teachers that will help and guide them during their first lessons. It will show them the benefits of the physical exercise using a hammock, as well as the benefits of the therapeutic nature of aerial yoga and its fun and entertaining aspect, and it will show them an alternative way to use traditional Yoga techniques. It is important that these first “aerial steps” to be steady and meaningful, so that they will inspire the new teachers and offer them assurance and the necessary tools to create pleasant, safe and comprehensive aerial Yoga classes!
The benefits this training offers to an experienced practitioner that does not (for the moment!) want to teach are, among others, a deeper understanding of the philosophy behind aerial and traditional yoga, the poses themselves and how they affect and train our body, in addition to an intense physical and spiritual experience!
For those interested that do not have any aerial yoga experience or have never attended a class with Miranda and would like to meet her, there will be free introductory classes with her. Contact to schedule one.
A few words about Sofia-Miranda Soldatou:
“My name is Sofia Miranda and I don’t particularly like to talk about myself! I’ve been dancing and practicing Yoga nineteen and sixteen years respectively and aerial yoga for eleven years. In this small journey I was fortunate to having been taught by many exceptional teachers in Greece and abroad. When I started teaching dance one of my teachers told me “You have to decide whether you want to teach or dance”. I decided my calling was to teach. I want to see my work through my students, and this is what I try to accomplish both in my traditional and aerial yoga classes. I love watching my students evolve, become stronger, blossom! And most of all I love watching them to start to believe in their immense capabilities. In this training course my goal is to bring out the best part of every participant in order to help them teach in their own unique way!
And remember: To create, to feel joy and success is a birth right of everyone! I hope to have the chance to get to know you in person!”
