| Luxury safaris for the soul

Want to become a flying yoga teacher?

In partnership with the Aerial Yoga Academy, we offer a unique training experience that combines online learning with an opportunity to conclude your course with onsite training at the Soul Safari Aerial Yoga Deck in Lilongwe, Malawi. Our 250hr online and onsite aerial yoga teacher training course is accredited by the World Yoga Alliance. So, you can confidently teach aerial yoga anywhere in the world upon completion of the course.

How does it work?

Study at home and at your own pace with a carefully curated library of on demand videos and a comprehensive aerial yoga manual developed by Monique of the Aerial Yoga Academy. Conclude the course with a personalised 2-day training session with Lotte at the Soul Safari Aerial Yoga Deck or an affiliated training location at one of Malawi’s wildlife reserves or luxury lake lodges. There’s a beautiful (aerial) yoga deck at Mvuu Lodge in Liwonde National Park. You might spot an elephant while hanging upside down. 

How much time is required?

The course is structured to fit in with your existing schedule. You can study at your own pace, but we recommend setting aside at least 1 to 3 months to complete the online training sessions and written assessment before attending the 2-day practical training session.

Who is this training for?

This training is for all those interested in deepening their knowledge of aerial yoga – whether you are a qualified yoga teacher of another yoga style, an aspiring aerial yoga teacher or a curious yoga practitioner looking to deepen your practice.

What does the training cover?

The 250hr course covers the foundations of traditional yoga principles and practices fused together with those of aerial yoga. We’ll study aerial yoga asanas together with the following:

  • Pranayama/ breathwork
  • Basic human anatomy

  • Posture benefits and therapeutic applications
  • Class sequencing and teaching tips
  • Introduction to aerial yoga massage techniques

Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to both teach and practice aerial yoga safely, but we also want to provide a fun and memorable learning experience. The Aerial Yoga Academy is a well-respected company verified worldwide, approved by the correct governing bodies and endorsed by our graduates.
