Aerial Yoga Swing Training Workshops
We conduct two separate 16 hour training workshops, an “Introductory” and a “Teacher Training” – each run over 2 days.. Or you can enroll in both together for a full 32 hour training run over 4 days and complete the intro and teacher training all at once!
The extra 16 hrs within the teacher training is required to enable participants to conduct Swing classes in the future and students will be assessed and a Certificate issued following successful completion.
You must have completed the Introductory Workshop to be eligible to participate in the Teacher Training.

Karen is from Australia and has been practicing yoga since 1989 and began teaching in 1997. She is a Level Certified Teacher, a Member of the Australian Yoga Teachers Association and Iyengar Yoga Teachers Association.
Karen has studied with one of Australia’s most senior and well respected Iyengar Yoga teachers, Peter Scott; and has also studied different lineages of yoga, as well as Thai Massage and Physiotherapy over the years.
Karen incorporated the Swing to develop perception, knowledge and alignment of body, mind and spirit in to her personal Yoga practice almost 15 years ago, and was offered the opportunity to work in conjunction with Gravotonics to develop this knowledge into a teaching role.
Through use of the Yoga Swing in the classical poses as set by Patanjali, Karen demonstrates how students can unlock areas of their practice, realign, strengthen and open to a new deeper experience within Asanas using the Swing.
This practice is a serious art and not simply a “flying yoga” gimmick!
Karen has taught Yoga Swing Training Workshops in many countries around the world! She is passionate about the gifts yoga can bring to improve the quality of one’s life and how the Swing used as a prop can enhance the execution of Asanas.
