AIReal Yoga: Yoga in the AIR, and REALLY Yoga
What makes AIReal Yoga™ different from other aerial yoga training? AIReal Yoga™ was the first Yoga brand & training curriculum ever recognized by the Yoga Alliance. Based in traditional Hatha Yoga, the design of our hammocks, hung on a single point anchored with a swivel, allow for flow, vinyasa, safe alignment, and revolved postures. The single point accommodates endless modifications and progressions of aerial yoga postures, making AIReal Yoga™ accessible to folks at every level of fitness. AIReal Yoga was invented and founded by Cirque performer and master Yogi, Carmen Curtis, with over 20 years of experience teaching and performing aerial and yoga.
