“Bodyflow’s approach to Aerial Yoga is so much more from the Yoga side than any other provider I’ve checked out. The course was very well structured and gave a brilliant and broad foundation to Aerial Yoga, leaving me confident to teach beginner and advanced while giving heaps of alignment and hands on assisting for students. Being able to participate, observe and teach part of a class was extremely helpful.”
