Each new sequence kicks off with a Sequence Video. This visual demonstration allows you to watch the sequence before we get into more detail.
We've put together image-based Sequence Maps to guide you through the sequences once you're comfortable with the poses. This visual reference is kind of like a cheat sheet to help you remember everything during your practice.
For each pose and sequence through the course, there is a Sequence Script. These scripts break down each pose into more detail, offering key alignment aspects and breath cues, as well as extra tips and things to avoid when trying each pose yourself.
Need a little extra prompting while you're learning the sequences? We've included guided audios with the Sequence Scripts to lead you through the practice.
Worried you might not remember everything? Don't worry, the quizzes are super easy and are simply there to keep you focused and keep the content fresh in your mind.
The full course has been designed and developed for you to access right here on the Airo Yoga website, from your computer or mobile device. With the freedom to structure your own course progression, you're in full control of how much time you spend on each module. You can track your progress as you work through the course and refer back to earlier lessons at any time. And the Sequence Videos, Sequence Maps & Scripts, theory modules and built-in quizzes will guide you every step of the way through your Foundations journey.
Once you complete the course you'll receive a shiny digital certificate as a little memento of your dedication to the course. And well, who doesn't like certificates?!
Once you've completed the course, you'll receive a 10% discount code to use on one of our upcoming 50-hour Teacher Training courses if you decide to further develop your Airo journey.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
All you need is the Airo Yoga Swing, a metal or wooden beam to hang it from and a yoga mat. Ensure that you order your swing online at least two weeks before you plan to begin the course. Swings are currently available in Australia, Kuala Lumpur, and Indonesia, and shipping takes between 10-14 working days. For other locations, please send us an email. The mat you use should have enough grip that your hands do not slip. You can also place a towel over the mat for some extra grip.
The swing can be installed at home, in a park or at the gym.
Try to find a beam or a crossbar in your house, garage, cellar or attic, and ensure that the structure is stable. If you hear the structure squeak or see the structure bend and submit to your weight, find somewhere else. A metal structure is usually best. You can also place two mental hooks in the ceiling. They need to be hip-distance apart. This will differ from person to person, but is usually between 50-65 cm wide.
You can find a strong tree in the park. Test the strength by hanging from the swing. If you hear a creak or think that the branch won’t hold, find a thicker branch.
At the gym, use the pull-up bar.
If you already have a hammock, yoga belt, or something similar, you are able to complete the course using that. It is, however, recommended that you purchase the swing prior to the course. The Airo Yoga Swing has been custom-designed specifically for this practice and is safe, durable, and easily adjustable.
Airo Yoga Foundations is beginner-friendly. The course also offers variations from beginner to advanced. Be sure to choose a variation that best suits you and slowly build towards the advanced poses.
Airo Yoga is the perfect form of exercise to get you started. The swing is a supporting tool that will help you build strength and stability in a safe and supported way. The practice is also super fun and playful, which will keep you motivated, and get you into the practice.
Airo will help you build the fitness you feel you may not have.
All physical practices come with their risks. If you follow the instructions carefully and ensure that your swing is properly installed, the swing and the practice are safe. It is recommended that you at least do the Foundations Course or attend a class or workshop before practicing on your own. It is also essential to know where your limits are. Do not do anything that does not feel right in your body. Ensure that you take rests in the practice when you need to, and do consult a doctor or physician if you suffer any pain or injury prior to the practice.
The practice combines elements of on-the-mat practices and off-the-mat practices. If you feel that going upside down is not good for you, there are still many standing poses and sequences for you to follow and practice. Inverting is just one part of the practice and you will still be able to obtain physical benefits from the on-the-mat practices.
No, but this will definitely tickle your curiosity about yoga and help you create a solid foundation for a future yoga practice.
“I am dirty. Therefore I will not take a shower.” – said no one ever. Same applies to this. If you’re not flexibile, then you SHOULD definitely try Airo.
