Aerial Yoga, also referred to as anti-gravity yoga, combines traditional yoga poses, pilates, and dance with the use of an aerial hammock. The aerial hammocks are suspended from the ceiling, hold 2000 pounds, and are made of high density nylon fabric. Yoga in the silks can increase body awareness and mindfulness, help build strength and control, and can help build space in the body without compressing the joints and spine. Aerial Yoga can unwind fascial knots, quiet the mind, build core strength, and increase confidence.

All participants will receive a Teacher Training manual and will have a chance to practice teach, work in the silks, ask questions, and address concerns.

18 contact hours of in class time required
4 non-contact hours of out of class time required
(2 hours practice teaching & 2 hours practice assisting)

One year of Aerial Yoga practice and a teaching certificate in yoga, pilates or barre are highly recommended.

Melissa Schultz

Melissa is a graduate of Flex Yoga’s first aerial yoga teacher training in January of 2016. She loves learning new things and the support, challenge, and body awareness that comes from practicing in the aerial fabric. She took her first aerial class in December of 2014, but it wasn’t until she began a committed aerial practice almost a year later that she truly began to love it. Her full-blown addiction to aerial is supplemented by just about any other Flex class she can fit into her schedule.
A student of all things health and wellness, she is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach and a Certified Professional Chocolatier – because life needs balance.
Born and raised in Wooster, Melissa married her high school sweetheart and has two awesome daughters (also budding aerialists). She spends her days as Director of Web Communication at the College of Wooster.
