AYTT FAQ

1.   What if I am brand new to Aerial Yoga? 

  • AYTT: Level 1 is for everybody. However it is worth noting that individuals with prior experience in Aerial Yoga or holding certifications, such as Yoga Instructor Certification, Pilates Certification, Personal Training Certification, Physical Therapist Certification, or similar credentials from accredited institutes within the health, wellness, and fitness industry, may find it more accessible to seamlessly integrate Aerial Yoga into their fitness routines.

  • Conversely, individuals with no previous experience or certifications within the health, wellness, and fitness industry may encounter a greater challenge when introducing Aerial Yoga.

2.   What's unique about a FWGYS 50 Hr AYTT: Level 1 program? 

  • Exclusively lead by Grace, globally recognized in the aerial world, for flying with grace and sharing the magic of flying through the art of flying with others everywhere she goes. 

  • Learn the FWGYS 60 Min Level 1 Sequence 

  • Learn Grace's technique for flying with grace, & the guaranteed methods to help first timers execute the fundamental inversion poses safely & successfully.

3.   What if I want to join, but do not want to become an Aerial Yoga Instructor?

  • That is totally okay and encouraged as well! The only difference will be that you do not have to take the Evaluation Test, which is separate from the Written Test.

4.   How do I sign up for this training? 

5.   Is there any other cost besides tuition fee?

  • Some people sign up to just deepen their own practice. However, if you'd like to become an Aerial Yoga Teacher, there is a separate $50 evaluation fee that must be passed. 

6.   Why is there a separate evaluation fee for $50 if I want to become an Aerial Yoga Instructor?

  • Although verbal instruction is a priority with clear, concise, & specific cues as a foundation of being a teacher, it is important that FWGYS instructors are able to physically demonstrate the various Aerial Yoga asanas commonly practiced.

  • Although there is the option for multiple attempts to take the evaluation test, it is important to note that a fee of $50 is required for each test attempt to facilitate the evaluation process. 

  • The evaluation test must be scheduled at least 24 hours before the last day of the training in order to receive the Certificate to Teach on the final day. Otherwise, it must be scheduled within 14 days of the last day of the training. 

7.   What does it mean to receive a Certificate to Teach certified by FWGYS ?

  • At this time, there isn't a recognized governing authority for Aerial Yoga or Aerial Arts comparable to Yoga Alliance for Yoga. Nevertheless, it's important to highlight that obtaining certification to teach Aerial Yoga from FWGYS ensures global recognition, allowing certified individuals to teach at Aerial Yoga studios worldwide.

  • Although you may be certified to teach Aerial Yoga: Level 1, it is important to acknowledge that each Aerial Yoga Studio may have distinct requirements for teaching. Certain studios may necessitate an additional 200 RYT certification, while others might mandate additional Aerial Apprentice Hours. These hours serve as a continued training program, enabling instructors to refine their teaching skills, further develop their unique style, and cultivate the distinctive teaching voice that each individual brings to the practice.

8.   Can I miss a day? 

  • We do not recommend missing any training hours, but we understand that emergencies can happen.  It is the responsibility of the individual to get the notes & assignment in order to make up the work.

9.   Is there a minimum attendance for the training to take place? 

  • Yes. At least 4 students must sign up. 

10.   Is there any additional work required besides the 40 hour in studio training time?

  • Yes. There is 10 hours of non contact work that must be completed. This includes but is not limited to:

    • Self-practice​​

    • Self-reflection

    • Observation of 2 Aerial Yoga classes (could be at either Moonshine location: Cedar Park or Liberty Hill)
