"I am extremely satisfied with the Aerial Physique Teacher Training program. It was amazing to spend class time with aerialists from all over the world. Because of this training, I am more intentional and aware when I teach. I feel a lot more confident with spotting safely (for me and for the student) and I feel more equipped to help beginner students with their trouble spots. I started using a lot of the structure and tools from the training immediately. I left the training feeling confident and inspired."
