This practice involves inverting your body and lifting away from your connection with the ground; it is not something to be taken lightly. If your intention is to teach and guide others in a practice with this form of yoga, please seek the knowledge and understanding from trained professionals in order to provide the safest, smoothest, and most beneficial experience for other as well as yourself.
This manual was not designed or intended for use with a layperson or inexperienced in- structors. It is highly advisable that you obtain your 200-hour yoga teacher training certification before seeking to engage in guiding others through an aerial yoga practice.
All use and potential misuse of this manual is done so AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Although there is a chapter dedicated to discussing contraindications, if you or a student have any health concerns/conditions it is strongly advised to check with a licensed healthcare professional before engaging in a practice containing inversions and asanas that lead to pressure on various areas of the body. Practice and teach AT YOUR OWN RISK.
