Taught by Alyssa Konda, Kate Fons, & Andrea Metcalf

Reaching Treetops Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Program began in 2010. After attending many different aerial yoga events and trainings, we noticed very few trainings actually taught teachers how to teach a well-defined and structured class. Reaching Treetops has successfully taught many people the beauty of becoming an aerial yoga teacher. Reaching Treetops yoga continues to develop our teaching program; offering classes, workshops and teacher trainings at the studio in Waukesha, Wisconsin and at various remote locations.  


Join instructors Alyssa Konda (Reaching Treetops owner), Kate Fons (teacher extraordinaire), Andrea Metcalf (powerhouse aerialist) & Kelly Paige (Yoga Lily Studio owner) for an intensive, fast paced, weekend training.

Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga is an invitation to rethink yoga and your fitness regimen. Our hammock silk classes are playful fusion of yoga and the circus arts. Yoga Lily instructors use a fun mixture of pose and basic hammock tricks to invite students to reconnect with their bodies, heal and recharge. 

Our Aerial Fitness offerings include Beginner Aerial, Aerial Level Up and Aerial Workshops.
