Aerial Yoga Teacher Training



Get in touch as Martin now offers this training 1:1 over the course of one full Sunday 7-9.30am then 11.30-5pm

Aerial yoga uses a low hanging fabric to support the weight of the body and is an amazing experience. The additional support provided by the hammock enables practitioners to work deeply into the poses to achieve postural alignment.

If you are looking to teach aerial yoga or just immerse yourself in the hammock to extend your practice further, then this training is suitable for you. You do not have to be a qualified Yoga Teacher to take part in this training.

Meet Your Teacher – Martin Scott

My Yoga journey started in 2008, when I certified as a yoga teacher at Sivananda Ashram in India . I had been travelling for many years and yoga seemed to be something that always showed up everywhere.

Working as a massage therapist since 1999 yoga seemed to fit what I done for a living – I made people feel better. People would come to me suffering bad backs at an early age, pulled necks from sitting at desks all day and I thought- could yoga not help these people too?

After certifying as yoga teacher i came back to Carlisle and started teaching at the studio in 2011, seeing the studio change so much over the years has been an eye opener as to what our current society needs – we need rest and time to look after ourselves. I find yoga a nurturing but strong practice, I love to play around with fun flows and to work slightly slower building deeper awareness of the body.

On my travels I was taught meditation in Ashrams, from buddhist monks, wise hill tribe leaders and Thai masters. I then travelled to Miami and certified in Budokon yoga. I also trained as a level 2 Aerial Yoga teacher and teach the Aerial yoga teacher training here at the studio.

However my yoga practice (and life) changed when I met Emma, here at the yoga studio Carlisle. Her passion for Ashtanga Yoga was so strong and I started to practice it with her.

Back then there was next to no Ashtanga in Cumbria, so we’d practice together and I’d learn from her. Fast forward a few years later I’ve trained as an ashtanga yoga teacher receiving certification to teach primary series by Manju Jois himself.
I own and direct the studio alongside Emma and I think together – we are the perfect balance of Yin and yang.

I create a calming but fun space when I teach, always offering variations so a diverse mix of students can attend my classes. I enjoy welcoming new yogis to the practice and supporting avid practitioners as well, together we all make up the amazing practice of yoga.
