We’re passionate about sharing the joy of Family AcroYoga through teaching! Our goal is to spread this love for Family AcroYoga worldwide, and we invite you to join our team of Family AcroYoga teachers.

Our teacher training program focuses on teaching both children and adults in a safe and supportive environment. The training consists of two modules: one for children aged 3-6 and their adults, and another for children aged 7-12 and their adults. You have the option to choose one module however we recommend to complete both. Upon successful completion of both modules, you will earn your Family AcroYoga certification.

Our program is dedicated to teaching Family AcroYoga in a secure and nurturing space. We’ll provide comprehensive workshops to enhance your teaching skills in Family AcroYoga. You’ll learn valuable skills such as managing larger groups of both adults and children, establishing effective communication methods, the physical development of children, conducting engaging physical exercises tailored to various age groups, and creating workshops and classes that are not only enjoyable but also beneficial for both kids and parents.

At the end of the training we organise a Family Acroyoga Festival in which you, the students of the teacher training, will teach the workshops so you can experience teaching ‘real’ children and their families.

Anyone that enjoys working with children and has basic training skills can apply for the training. During the teacher training we will focus on how to teach acroyoga to adults and children, therefore basic knowledge of physical training is needed.
