So what exactly is Suspension Yoga™?

Is it aerial yoga? Is it a form of Iyengar Yoga? These are great questions!

Suspension Yoga™ is a form of aerial yoga and, is similar to Iyengar Yoga because the YogiGym® is one of the greatest yoga props available and can be used for therapeutic purposes. So what ARE the differences between us and other systems? Read on....

  • Aerial hammocks generally only use 1 height setting which cannot be easily adjusted once set up.

  • The synthetic polyknit fabric used in aerial yoga is very stretchy and can often tighten and bind, constricting the limbs and resulting in unwanted bruising.

  • There are no other support methods available, making it difficult for beginners and limiting the number of movement possibilities for aerial poses

Aerial Yoga

  • We work with 15 height settings that can be quickly and easily adjusted to suit different physical proportions.

  • YogiGym® is a made from soft, durable rip-stop parachute fabric and, the hammock contains a foam insert to provide maximum comfort and eliminate pinching.

  • Three levels of detachable handles for added support and that can also be used independently for even more poses!

Suspension Yoga

And although Iyengar Yoga has been a source of inspiration in the creation of the Suspension Yoga™ Method, the ropes that are used for inverting are anchored against walls which restrict movement and the many of wonderful poses that are available while being in an inverted state.

Suspension Yoga™ provides both the therapeutic benefits of Iyengar Yoga and the fitness benefits of aerial yoga WITHOUT the limitations of either of these methods.

The reason that Suspension Yoga™ is such a powerful method is because it is fully customizable offering more versatility, range of movement and ease of use thereby making it possible for people of all fitness levels to experience the thrill and freedom of airborne poses and inversions in the safest, most supportive manner possible.

Suspension Yoga™ is a unique, hybrid practice

That combines aerial movements with:

  • yoga postures
  • resistance strength training and pilates

It can also compliment other movement modalities such as:

  • pole dancing
  • aerobatics and gymnastics

Or be an instrument for restorative and therapeutic practices such as:

  • Thai Yoga massage
  • Fascia Release Therapy

The rewards of teaching this method are many

  • Suspension Yoga™ is beneficial for almost any body. It is fun, so no matter what the age of your clientele and it will keep them coming back.
  • The therapeutic benefits of low impact joint mobility and spinal decompression can tailor towards classes for the elderly.

  • Classes that focus on spinal alignment and postural awareness are perfect for children and their developing bones.For those who want to make advances in their yoga practice, the YogiGym is the best yoga prop available. Practitioners at every level can access the benefits of asanas like handstand, headstand, arm balancing postures, and back-bends, all of which may otherwise be unattainable and possibly even dangerous.
  • Suspension Yoga™ is also conducive to rehabilitative classes, allowing those with injuries to gently and safely reintegrate physical activity back into their lives.

Change your practice and the way you lead

Benefits of This Training

Instructors of the Suspension Yoga Method™ will become familiar with the basics of teaching Suspension Yoga™ and learn to instruct from a whole new perspective.

Experiencing gravity in a new way can be both liberating and, at times, a little scary. Emphasis is placed on the integration of proper form, support, stabilization, and safety throughout the duration of each exercise as well as effective spotting techniques for clients of varying abilities.

In addition, you will learn how to confidently coach students out of their comfort zone guiding them to the freedom and elation that exists on the other side which will keep them coming back for more.

With the YogiGym® Suspension Swing, clients at any level or age can learn to use gravity as their greatest tool. By implementing simple and customized strategies, you can teach students to: release muscular tension, relieve chronic back pain increase joint mobility, enhance core strength, improve coordination, and slow down the ageing process... all while having a great time!

Beatrix and The Suspension Yoga™ Teacher Training have literally been a lifesaver for me!

I was scheduled for back surgery due to a lower back injury. I decided to research other means for correcting my back issue and found Beatrix at The Flying Yogi and her Suspension Yoga™Teacher Training . Beatrix was completely supportive and accommodating throughout the entire teacher training process and is still to this day. The content was engaging and fun to complete. I’m happy to say that becoming a certified Suspension Yoga™ teacher has completely changed my life, and my back! After completing the training and using my YogiGym, I opened a very successful Suspension Yoga™ studio that caters to kids, and the best part is that I no longer require back surgery! Thank you so much for everything Beatrix!

Hi, my name is Beatrix and I am the creator of the Suspension Yoga™ Method, the designer of the YogiGym® Suspension System and founder of THE FLYING YOGI INC. which encompasses a retreat centre in Mérida Mexico, The Flying Yogi Training Academy for world class online teacher training courses, The Flying Yogi On-Demand Tv for online Suspension Yoga™ classes and the YogiGym® Suspension System, the world's most amazing yoga prop.

I also authored the best seller on aerial yoga: THE SUSPENSION YOGA™ INSTRUCTIONAL HANDBOOK.

I first discovered the magical benefits of hanging upside down while on one of my many trips to India. Having been a back-pain sufferer for most of my life, I was thrilled by how well inverting made my spine feel. As a result, I became inspired to create my unique system, that gives you the therapeutic benefits of Iyengar Yoga and the fitness benefits of aerial yoga WITHOUT the limitations of either of these methods.

I have led retreats to many beautiful locations such as Croatia, Cost Rica, Dominican Republic, South America and trained hundreds of students from all over the globe in the Suspension Yoga™ Method.

Flying Yoga was one of the most amazing experience in my life.

It truly was an unforgettable experience to overcome my fear and the journey of my inner strength. Beatrix Montanile is an incredible teacher, she’s the founder of Suspension Yoga. I loved her teaching style – she’s very attentive, encouraging, and supportive. A balance curriculum of each aerial asanas, breathing and anatomy with guidance between practice and theory while teaching. Her program was very well structured and well organized. I’m so glad I found this course to exhale my fear and believe in myself. Thank you Beatrix!

The 50 hrs teachers training certification at The Flying Yogi is an awesome course.

Not only did I learned so much, I ended the course 5 lbs lighter and a couple of inches taller. My balance has improved and I’m standing straight up. I feel great. Thank you Beatrix!
