Aerial Yoga Instructor Training Programme with TT Ho (50-Hour)
To register, kindly click on the "Register Now' button below, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Aerial Yoga helps practitioners to increase flexibility, develop strength, and experience deep, full breathing. Working with gravity, students realign and relax the body, enhance awareness, and uplift the spirit. Discovering how to work with the hammock as a teaching prop allows students to explore, refine and advance the asana practice. The hammock makes traditional asanas easier; simultaneously, the practice becomes deeper and more achievable as the weight of the body is either partially or fully supported by the fabric (hammock). Students can challenge themselves whilst also restoring, repairing and relaxing.
You will understand the benefits of working with the hammock – how it facilitates proper body alignment and physical release in different body parts. You will also learn how to create a fluid aerial yoga class and how to safely teach aerial yoga to others.
Completion of this course guarantees a certificate. You should feel confident in integrating the hammock into your teaching style and self-practice.

A Chartered Accountant by training, TT Ho was introduced to Yoga when Pure Yoga first opened in 2002, initially focusing on hot yoga. Over the years, he has practised and trained in various styles – from hatha, power vinyasa and ashtanga to yin yang, acro yoga and aerial yoga – under different masters. TT’s practice has evolved from a physical practice to a holistic approach.
Inspired by his teachers Patrick Creelman and Wendy Wyvill amongst many others, TT undertook his first teacher training in the US with Baron Baptiste in 2009. The training was transformational and stressed authenticity. He then furthered his studies with Master Yogananth Andiappan, deepening his knowledge and practice in the yoga tradition. After acquiring 500 hours’ training with Master Yogananth, he was motivated to pursue a Master of Science degree in yoga & naturopathy. TT continues his lifelong journey in yoga, recently building his expertise in aerial yoga.
Through teaching yoga, TT hopes to spread its benefits and philosophy to a wider community. As Managing Editor of Asana, he is instrumental in introducing yoga masters to all and connecting with the international yoga community on yoga and related subjects. TT emphasises non-competition and compassion. His classes can be challenging at times, but students will leave feeling refreshed and energised.
