About this trip

Join ULU Yoga for a 50-Hr Aerial Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand.   Enjoy a beautiful ocean view yoga shala and serene resort with three perfect beaches.  Create a loving yoga family and make life-long friends. 


Mix aerial with traditional hatha and vinyasa yoga, do unique workshops like aerial acro fusion, choreograph an acrobatic performance and do aerial on the beach flying over the ocean.


Deepen your knowledge with detailed analytics, alignment, anatomy and methodology.  Practice teaching every day to become a confident instructor.  Receive a certificate of completion from ULU Yoga who is a 200/300-Hr Registered Yoga Alliance School.  


This course is open to all levels.  Students are recommended to take rest and modify as needed for advanced poses.


Durring this course you will practice with the ULU Yoga Swing, which has cushion padding for greater comfort and support than regular silk hammocks, which are often painful and cause bruising.  


However, you may also practice with regular silk hammocks if you prefer and do all the same poses.  In Bali you must bring your own silk hammock, but in Thailand the school provides both.  Check ULU Yoga on Youtube to see the ULU Yoga Swing in action and ensure it is the right choice for you.

Course Details

Aerial Yoga

Each morning is meditation and pranayama followed by traditional hatha aerial yoga.  The evening is vinyasa aerial, which connects breath and movement to create dynamic flows. 


Aerial Massage

Explore the therapeutic aspects of aerial yoga by using swings and hammocks to stretch deeply into the connective fascia tissue, create traction, to decompress the spine, create space between the intervertebral discs, relieve nerve pressure and cure back pain using techniques from physical therapy and Thai massage. (1-2 classes)


Aerial Silk Hammock Workshop

Practice with silk hammocks to learn more intricate techniques,  complex asanas,  fluid transitions and serene relaxation.  (1 class)


Analytics

Examine individual aerial yoga poses and their traditional hatha roots to learn correct alignment, technique, transitions, cueing and modifications for various levels.  (daily)


Anatomy

Learn the biomechanics of movement, the principles of compression and proportion and working with different body types. Study the bodily systems including respiratory, muscular, skeletal and energetic. Examine the health benefits of various asanas and their ability to treat various illnesses and injuries. Educate yourself with the ancient science of ayurveda.


Yoga is the relationship that is built between the body, the mind and the breath, creating space free from obstacles in your own body and spirit, yoga is freedom and release. Learn the biomechanics of movement and health benefits of various asanas and how to adapt the poses to various illnesses and injuries and different body and bone types. 


Study the myofascial and parasympathetic nervous system and their impact on the spine and overall health to bring liberation of mental and physical discomforts and activation of deep relaxation. With yogic and ayurvedic perception of energy and philosophy, we will create a new understanding of anxiety, depression and stress and the different ways to relieve it through mindfulness and somatic body work.

ULU Yoga School

Since 2014, ULU Yoga has led over 100 yoga courses and produced over 500 new instructors.  ULU Yoga strives to be creative and unique while still honouring the sacred wisdom of traditional yoga as a means to better health, happiness and spiritual liberation.


We originally chose the name ULU simply because it sounded nice and had no meaning in English, like AUM.  After expanding our focus into aerial yoga we surprisingly learned it means owl in Hindi.


The owl is like an aerial yogi who sits in quiet meditation, peering through the darkness to dispel ignorance and illuminate the true nature of reality.  He then flies into action with wisdom and skill to achieve his goal. ULU also means whirlwind or crazy in arabic languages, where they say “Are you ULU?”.  


We define ULU as Universal Love and Understanding.  All together this perfectly summerizes ULU Yoga’s love for traditional yoga and crazy styles like aerial, which can serve to uplift and unite humanity. 

Instructors

Instructors are carefully chosen so that each subject is taught by a trained specialist.  Please double check with us to see who is teaching, as teacher availability can change.
